Several years ago we began manufacturing the Weber Weeder, a one-man self-propelled "bean buggy" (first featured in FARM SHOW's Vol. 1, No. 1 issue). Now we've created a new "Weed Wiper" rope wick applicator to mount on the Weber Weeder. Lets the operator easily and quickly take care of heavy infestations in a fraction of the time it would take with a hook or hand sprayer. The 15-ft. wide Weed Wiper will take out all taller weeds above the row and you can still take out smaller weeds by hand. Weed Wiper-can be raised or lowered from the seat and chemical level can be checked at a glance of the eye. It's the only wick wiper that can run through drilled crops without running on top of the row and run on ridges without damaging them. The 4-ft. ends fold up for transport.
