The Quad-X Xterminator™ is a weed wiper equipped with innovative dual rollers. These are highly absorbant to ensure excellent chemical retention on the surface and for excellent application to weeds. The first of these counter rotating twin rollers lifts the weed up to apply the chemical to the sensitive underside of the leaf which allows for a much faster herbicide absorption and so faster weed kill rates. The second roller rotates in the opposite direction and acts to separate out any clumps of weeds to get a more even chemical application for better weed kill results. The second roller also acts as a reservoir to absorb any excess chemical that may be on the primary roller, to minimise the risk of dripping which can cause grass to burn. Through considerable development time and investment Quad-X™ has discovered a process of unique atomisation technology where chemical is applied in the form of micro-bubbles which attach themselves to the rollers without bursting. Chemical activation is enhanced since the chemical is transferred to the weeds in a bubble form. Upon contact with the weeds the micro bubbles burst and provide a better stem coverage than the standard chemical film approach.
The rider regulates the weed coverage by controlling when chemical is applied to the roller. If you require a weed wiper to automatically apply the chemical for you, please look at the Weed Wipeout in the herbicide applicators category.
The Xterminator™ is fitted with an easily adjusted towbar so it can be pulled directly behind or offset for harder to reach areas. It is suitable for towing behind an ATV, tractor or jeep/4x4 since it is equipped with a tow hitch to fit a 50mm tow ball. The Xterminator™ has a 7 position adjustable height from 60mm - 520mm (approx depending on towing vehicle used) to suit different grass and weed heights. This ATV weed wiper is ideal for the UK climate and ground conditions and comes with low pressure knobby tyres as standard to allow you to access wet areas.
Weed wiping is a more environmentally friendly approach to weed control in comparison to boom spraying, since only the weeds are targeted. This ensures that grass and clover growth is not stunted. With none of the off spray associated with boom spraying, wildlife habitats are less affected and it's healthier for you too.
