Two rollers, one behind the other, are fitted at the bottom of a long handle. The cone-shaped rollers have serrated blades on the outside. A float provided in the front portion prevents the unit from sinking into the soil.
The cono weeder can also be used for trampling green manure crop in addition to weeding operation. It disturbs the topsoil and increases soil aeration. The equipment is operated in a standing posture thus avoiding the bent posture involved during uprooting of weeds by hand. You can build this locally with our Open-Source Plans. Please download them.
