Finger weeders are used for mechanically removing weeds between crop rows. A finger weeder works in the top layer of the plant row and is specially designed to control small and newly germinated weeds in the crop row without damaging the crops.
Finger weeders consist of rotating discs with flexible rubber fingers attached to them. The flexible rubber fingers are driven by a steel disc with red steel pins.
It is also possible to replace the disc with flexible fingers for a disc with brush fingers. These brush weeders are slightly kinder to the crop than the rubber finger weeders.
Finger weeder arm spring loaded:
A spring-loaded finger weeder arm is attached to the back of the hoe beam and can be put into transport and working position by means of teeth. The advantage of this spring-loaded arm is that you can relieve and load it in pressure. This allows you to make the finger weeders more or less aggressive, so that the finger weeder can be adjusted perfectly. You will achieve maximum results with this!
Finger weeder arm blade holder
A finger weeder arm knife holder is attached behind an element by means of a handle. You attach cross sleeves to this handle with which you can adjust the width and length.
