Self-propelled weed wicker being manufactured


Manchester Mfg. Co. is in the process of manufacturing a self-propelled weed wicker for dry land and row crops.

Models are hydrostat drive and steer, hydraulic booms with manual fold. Single and dual Spiedel tubes for heavy concentration. Booms are three section to fit contour of land. Narrow tires with row dividers to keep crop knockdown minimal. Air suspension seat for better ride. Foam marker is standard equipment. The prototype has been used the past two years wicking rye in wheat and weeds in cotton and has proven very effective. Watch for debut this spring.
