The weeder developed by the innovator is a self-propelled cultivator having passive tillage tool (reversible shovel type with tynes) where the operator needs to walk behind the machine. With an average coverage of 0.4-0.5 acre/h at average fuel consumption 0.5 lit/h, this weeder fills the gap between small tractor and draft animal operated tillage machinery.
