The Eco Blade is a specialist piece of machinery which uses revolutionary “Wet Blade” technology to simultaneously slash and apply herbicide to weeds in a single pass.
Herbicide is applied directly to the blades, and is immediately drawn into the root system of the plant as its being slashed, meaning the plant has no chance to heal the stem before the herbicide is absorbed.
This precision technology results in a significant reduction in the amount of chemical needed as well as reducing the chances of spray drift, overspray, and chemicals leeching into the ground. The all-in-one system also reduces labour and machinery costs when compared to traditional control programs.
The Eco Blade is the machine of choice for sensitive areas such as embankments, roadsides, drainage lines, and areas of Cultural or environmental significance.
TMC enviro’s Eco Blade is attached to our 7 tonne 4WD telehandler. The telescopic boom allows greater access for hard to reach areas such as densely treed areas, slopes and where target species are close to existing infrastructure.
The Eco Blade can be used for the precision treatments of a wide range of weeds, from grasses and shrubs, to a selection of woody weeds such as Boxthorn, Gorse, and Cape Broom.
