Finger Weeder, 9" (220mm)
9" Finger Weeder
The Steketee Finger Weeder is an entirely new innovation in the challenging practice of inner-row mechanical weeding.
The Finger Weeder is specially designed to control small and just emerging weeds. It consists of a turning disc with flexible rubber fingers or brush fingers on it. How it works: The rubber fingers turn in between the crop row, driven by the steel fingers, dislodging small weeds.
Ball-bearing construction ensures trouble free operation.
Depth and width adjustments are infinite.
Ideal for use in well established brassicas like broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage.
The Finger Weeder is suitable for weeding at typical cultivation speeds.
Narrow Finger Weeder: 9-inch (220 mm) - for row spacings as close as 10-inches
Weighs about 6 lbs
Finger Weeder "fingers" are quite durable but will wear-out with extended use. Inexpensive replacement finger-disks are available for all style Finger Weeders.
Finger Weeders paired with A-Blades
Steketee finger weeders are available in a variety of sizes and can be adapted to practically any weeding implement.
Finger weeder effectiveness is enhanced when used in conjunction with other weeding instruments like A-blades, spring tines, duck-feet, crumblers, etc.
