The Logic Towed ATV Weed Wiper – Contact 2000 CTF is the most advanced and efficient weed wiper (weed licker) system available.
It has been designed to be towed behind an ATV or other suitable farm vehicle and the chemical supply pump is powered by the towing vehicle’s 12V electrics.
The 60 litre supply tank will carry sufficient chemical (20:1 water: chemical ratio) to treat a very large area, simply because only the targeted weeds come into contact with the chemicals. The work rate for a single 2.5m unit is between 4 and 7 acres per hour depending on terrain.
A unique, contra-rotating brush ensures that each weed plant is liberally coated with chemicals, ensuring rapid and effective weed control while at the same time eliminating chemical wastage and leaving un-targeted plants such as valuable grass and clover untouched. Huge chemical savings can be achieved using Contact 2000 compared with conventional blanket spraying along with the added environmental benefits.
The Contact 2000 system ensures effective measures can be taken against many common weed species (e.g. rush, bracken, thistle, dock, nettles, etc)
Contact 2000 is suitable for use with many Environmental / Stewardship schemes and in addition, meets the requirements for the Northern Ireland Farm Modernisation Programme (FMP) Quad/ATV weed wiper/lick F20 category
