The Logic Contact 2000 range is the most advanced and efficient weed wiper (weed licker) system available. It has been designed to be towed behind an ATV or other suitable farm vehicle and the chemical supply pump is powered by the towing vehicle’s 12V electrics.
The 60 litre supply tank will carry sufficient chemical (20:1 water:chemical ratio) to treat a very large area, simply because only the targeted weeds come into contact with the chemicals. The work rate for a single 2.5m unit is between 4 and 7 acres per hour depending on terrain. A unique, contra-rotating brush ensures that each weed plant is liberally coated with chemical, ensuring rapid and effective weed control while at the same time eliminating chemical wastage and leaving untargeted plants such as valuable grass and clover untouched. Huge chemical savings can be achieved using Contact 2000 compared with conventional blanket spraying along with the added environmental benefits.
The Contact 2000 system ensures effective measures can be taken against many common weed species (e.g. rush, bracken, thistle, dock, nettles, etc)
Contact 2000 is suitable for use with many Environmental / Stewardship schemes and in addition meets the requirements for the Northern Ireland Farm Modernisation Programme (FMP) Quad/ATV weed wiper/lick F20 category
All Contact 2000 models consist of the trailed brush unit with an offset draw bar facility and the chemical control system. The units can be supplied with a dedicated drawbar mounted chemical supply tank or if the customer also requires an on board boom sprayer, one of the Logic On Board Sprayer Range can be used. The pump feeds the chemical at a controlled rate via the supplied control unit to ensure the correct saturation of chemical on the brush depending on the weed density. An override button can be used at any point to supply extra chemical to the brush to treat a more dense area of weeds. With the height set correctly to target just the weed plants which require treatment, the unit is simply switched on to start the brush rotating and the unit is towed across the area needing treatment. A bout marker is available to provide a visual indicator of the area covered, which is ground driven from the wheel of the Contact 2000.
Two or three gang units (5.0m and 7.5m widths) are available for covering up to 20 acres (8Ha) per hour, where higher work rates are required.
