When you start hoeing in the planting row, you can opt for a torsion weeder. A torsion weeder is suitable for more sensitive crops, the power of the torsion weeder can be adjusted to the growth stage. A torsion weeder fits both the basic and the combi element .
How does a torsion weeder work:
The torsion weeder consists of two spring tines; Torsion weeder tine on the left and a torsion weeder tine on the right . these teeth face each other. A torsion weeder works 1 to 2 cm from the ground and goes right along both sides of the planting row. The springy action of the tines loosens weeds in the row of plants. When the torsion weeder moves past the plant, resistance is generated on the tip of the torsion weeder. This causes the torsion weeder to open and close again.
A torsion weeder is adjustable, so you can make it work more aggressively with a firm crop. You do this by adjusting the angle by means of bolts on a holder. But the width is also adjustable through a slotted hole.
We sell three types of holders in our webshop:
- Steketee holder torsion weeder fixed Basic
- Steketee holder torsion weeder Vibro Basic
- Steketee holder torsion weeder Combi
Which type of holder you need depends on the type of element.
You can adjust the final angle of the torsion weeder with a degree adjustment / point adjustment on the torsion weeder holder.
Finally, torsion weeders are also available with several tines:
- Complete torsion weeder holder with 4 tines
- Torsion weeder complete over the row on the left
- Torsion weeder complete over the row on the right
