Weed Wiper – Tractor Mounted CTM600 (Arable Application)

The Logic CTM600 Contact 2000 is one of the flagship models of our tractor mounted weed wiper range and is the most advanced and efficient weed wiper (weed licker) system available. All CTM models have been designed for mounting on a tractor’s three point linkage whilst the chemical supply pump is powered by the tractor’s 12v electrics. It has a 6 metre working width and a 270 litre on board chemical tank offering work rates of between 13 acres (5Ha) and 20 acres (8Ha) per hour, depending on forward speed and terrain.

The Logic CTM600 consists of a hydraulic function selector to move the outer brush units to the working position and to power the brush sections. The two outer wings incorporate adjustable stops to ensure the wings drop to a pre-determined – usually level attitude with the tractor and also a resettable, hydraulic break-back facility to protect the machine against damage from unforeseen obstacles.

The 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 vegetables and other arable row crops, untouched. Huge chemical savings can be achieved using Contact 2000 compared with conventional blanket spraying along with other additional environmental benefits.

The 12v electric pump supplies the chemical at a controlled rate via the (in-cab) control unit ensuring the correct saturation of chemical on the brush, depending on weed density – the override button can be used at any point to supply extra chemical to the brush for treating 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 moved across the area needing treatment. An optional bout marker is available to provide a visual indicator of the area covered.

The Contact 2000 system ensures effective measures can be taken against many common weed species eg. weed beet, blackgrass, fat hen and volunteer plants, etc.

Weed Wiper – Tractor Mounted CTM250

Weed Wiper - Tractor Mounted CTM250

These Contact 2000 models are designed for customers who prefer to use a tractor for weed wiping – the standard 2.5 metre wide unit utilises the tractor’s hydraulics and can be fitted to either the front or rear three point linkage or with the additional fitment of the universal hedge cutter interface bracket, an existing hydraulic power arm can be utilised. All tractor mounted models retain all the other unique and long established features and benefits of the Contact 2000 weed wiper system.

The brush is driven by the hydraulic motor which is easily adjusted using a simple flow valve, allowing the operator to set the optimum rotational speed. Positioning the control box in the cab close to the driver allows any adjustments to chemical flow rate to be carried out whilst on the move.

The three point linkage Interface bracket can be bolted facing front or rear depending on the required fitment to a tractor. The ability to set up the unit rear facing is beneficial when treating difficult slopes. Travelling in reverse is often a lot safer and this arrangement becomes ideal for tractor models with a bi-directional reverse drive facility.

The use of the Contact 2000 fitted to the hydraulic power arm of a hedge cutter opens up endless possibilities for weed wiping. Weeds can be controlled in otherwise out of reach areas such as roadside, waterside and railway embankments although the machine is equally at home carrying out regular weed wiping duties in everyday situations.

For any farming or contracting customers already owning a hedge cutter, this option gives access to a highly specialised machine with minimum outlay.

The Logic CTM600W Contact 2000 is the flagship of our tractor mounted weedwiper range and is the most advanced and efficient weed wiper (weed licker) system available. All CTM models have been designed for mounting on a tractor’s three point linkage whilst the chemical supply pump is powered by the tractor’s 12v electrics.

The Logic CTM600W consists of a hydraulic function selector to move the outer brush units to the working position and to power the brush sections. During operation, the grassland model runs on its four wheels and floats over the ground when the hydraulics are put into “float” mode – this ensures the 6 metre boom follows the contours of the ground which is critical when working on rough or undulatiing ground. The two outer wings incorporate a resettable, hydraulic break-back facility to protect the machine against damage from unforeseen obstacles.

The 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 or arable row crop, untouched. Huge chemical savings can be achieved using Contact 2000 compared with conventional blanket spraying along with other additional environmental benefits.

The Contact 2000 system ensures effective measures can be taken against many common weed species (e.g. rush, bracken, thistle, dock, nettles, weed beet, blackgrass, fat hen and volunteer plants, etc).

Contact 2000 is suitable for use with many Environmental/Stewardship schemes.
