Weeds & Fert


Farmhand is for the larger garden and lawn jobs that are still most easily accomplished with a push-type spreader. Hopper capacity is up to 56kg. These machines are on pneumatic tyres. The gearbox will stand some decent wear and tear with a 13cm crown wheel. The large-quadrant flow control mechanism is easy to operate for accurate, incremental sowing rates, and features an adjustable stop device so exact rates can be set and repeated. Spread width is 4-6m, depending on material being applied. The whole unit is mounted on a sturdy pipe frame. Handles are full height for stoopless operation. A transparent hopper cover is supplied.
NB: Some assembly with regular home handyman tools is required on receipt.

For the organic gardener, or just those who do not wish to use weed killing chemicals, this is the tool to use. Light with the instant Piezo ignition, and sweep slowly along about 5cm (2”) above the weeds. The plant only needs to be heated, not burned. The heating causes the cells walls to burst, and the plant dies. (To check this is achieved, pressing a leaf between fingertips should leave a dark green finger print). Leaves should fall after 2-3 days. Some hardier weeds will need repeated treatments through the growing season. Using the 0.34kg refillable hand-held propane bottle (as pictured) will give about 1 hour of continuous burn. A 3m extension hose is available for use with larger, heavier gas bottles, to give flexibility of use.
