MAC Rotary Weeder


mac rotary weederThe Mac Rotary Weeder is a revolutionary patented Australian mechanical weeder, that when combined with a hydraulic power pack makes the removal of weeds from between vines and posts a quick and effortless process.

The Mac Rotary Weeder has many benefits over the conventional Silly Plough AKA (Vine dodger, Knife). These include extremely effective and complete removal of weeds around vines, guard ring to prevent the blade from damaging the vine and its root systems, easy intergration with your existing hydraulic plough arm and a ridged construction for many years of successful cost effective weed control.

Reducing your Changeover Costs:

Changing over from your convential plough to the Mac Rotary Weeder can work out cheaper than you think. As mentioned above the Mac Weeder will intergrate with your existing plough by simply removing your old plough head and replacing it with the Mac Rotary Weeder head. (requires a hydraulic power pack) This can save you over half of the cost of a complete unit.
