Weed wipers are designed to eradicate weeds such as reeds, rushes, nettles, bracken, thistles etc. in fields, paddocks and farm land, quickly and effectively by wiping them out as an alternative to using sprayers. Weed wipers work by getting a coating of chemical weedkillers or herbicides onto the carpet roller of the machine which is then wiped across the intended weeds, destroying them.
Made of robust steel construction, our ATV weed wiper is nevertheless a lightweight machine designed to go behind an ATV quad bike or similar vehicle with a ball hitch, which features a unique electric drive motor that operates at 25rpm., a special feature that ensures the weeds get a good dosage of herbicide without dripping occurring, therefore avoiding the damage of crops below.
An electric drive roller is attached to the weed wiper with a high quality, wear resistance, thick pile wool/poly blend carpet to balance the carrying weight of liquid.
The weed wiper roller is made of strong tubular steel which allows an even and easy application of herbicide to the weeds and at the same time prevent the herbicide from being flicked onto surrounding crops. The application of chemicals to the roller is fully operator adjustable and controlled by a unique IP67 sealed control box, with the pump being automatically pulsed on and off, maintaining the correct and constant liquid saturation of the roller.
The herbicide application rate is controlled by a simple rotary adjustment on the electronic control module powered from the towing vehicle.
The Chapman weed wiper has narrow semi-flotation tyres with low ground pressure which minimise the chance of herbicides being transferred to the actual wheels and therefore to the underlying grass.
The hand lance is suitable for spot spraying on hard to get at areas and is fitted as standard on the integrated tank.
The height and offset adjustment ensures an easy use of this weed wiper and full coverage on all areas.
