CTM Weed Surfer: 6.4m and 9m wide cut
Weed Surfer is designed for the effective cutting of extended weed growth in arable crops and weed beet.
The original Weed Surfer weighs just 700kg, suitable for a standard tractor pickup hitch. It has ten 4 blade rotors giving a 6.4 metre cutting path. Drive is from the tractor's 1000 rpm power take off shaft, through machine input slip clutch, to gearboxes interconnected with drive shafts. CTM now offer a wider Weed Surfer with fourteen 4 blade rotors giving a 9 metre cutting path.
Its original operating height of 300mm (12 inches) can be extended to 850mm or a full 1 metre by the addition of extension brackets without placing undue strain on the PTO. This enables the Weed Surfer to tackle weed infestation and weed beet in sugar beet and extended weed growth in a variety of organic crops such as beans and cereals.
Users have successfully used it on wild oats within wheat and barley, thistles in beans and peas, including topping out plants to increase yield and tackle black fly infestation. Weed surfer has also proved effective cutting extended weed growth and bolters in red beet and carrots and docks in pasture land.
The Weed Surfer has adjustable wheels for variable row widths and for road transportation when the machine is end towed. Road lighting is standard.
The unit can be front or rear mounted on a tractor with appropriate linkage and PTO.
