Finger Weeder, 16" (400mm)
16" 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.
Wide Finger Weeder: 16-inch (400 mm) - for row spacing as close as 15-inches
Weighs about 9 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.
