The Oz weeding robot adapts to every need
The Oz toolbox
There are five tools in total, two of which are dedicated to weeding between rows, as they are non selective and weed-agressive: the plough or hoe share and the five-teeth harrow. The three other tools weed inside the crop row: the spiked harrow, the weeding brush and the torsion spring. These three tools are selective and designed to remove young weeds while protecting the crop and your harvest.
To learn more about the way they work and how they should be used, please click on the tool of your choice below.
Use: covers up weeds in the crop row and deprives them of light and air.
Working principle: the plastic hairs are strong enough to move loose soil from between the rows towards the crop base. This creates a small ridge that covers up sprouting weeds and deprives them of light.
The spiked harrow
Use: removes sprouting weeds from the crop row.
Working principle: the harrow contains 10 metal rods that start with a spring. The rods create a claw that scratches the soil surface. This soft method can be used on young, well established crops to remove sprouting weeds.
The five-teeth harrow
Use: loosens beaten and compacted soil.
Working principle: The tool contains 5 différent teeth, i.e. a trident and two separate teeth. Every tooth can reach a depth of 2 to 5 cm and a working width of 4 cm.
The hoe share
Use: the hoe share is a non-selective mechanical weeding tool designed for remove weeds between the rows through tillage.
Working principle: the slightly curved blade is highly efficient. It reaches a depth of 2 to 3 cm and has a working width of 20 cm.
The torsion spring
Use: removes young weeds from the crop row.
Working principle: this very simple concept consists of a spring mounted on the hoe share or on the five-teeth harrow to scratch the soil in the crop row.
