Homemade Round-up weed control wiping machine

Greetings friends.....just sharing a picture of the machine I built to control weeds on cranberry bogs. It is an articulated frame with a K46 hydro axle and transmission, 10 hp Tecumseh engine, electric pump to spray Round-up mix on a 9 foot aluminum pipe covered in terrycloth and rotated by a automotive windshield wipe motor to keep it from dripping. The Round-up soaked pipe is raised and lowered with an electric winch. My seat is from a really comfy Craftsman Lawn Tractor. I can wipe an acre of weeds an hour with this girl.

Re: Homemade Round-up weed control wiping machine

Thats a pretty nice weed wiper. I can remember when lots of farmers had those as an attachment for a front end loader. Then with the advent of roundup ready seeds they went the way of the dodo bird. Maybe they will make a comeback now that weeds have developed resistance.

Round-up on weeds with a wipe is OK, but I'm against the Round-up ready seed......spraying weed killer on food to eat just seems kind of unhealthy.
