Tine Weeders

What is a tine weeder?

Tine weeders are a versatile piece of equipment used for mechanical weed control. These pieces of equipment are made using spring loaded tines that flick weeds out of the ground, exposing their roots and killing the plant.

One of the main reasons we prefer the use of a tine weeder on our organic ground is because of it’s versatility in both pre emergence, and post emergence weed control. The Hatzenbichler Tine Weeders that we carry here at Crop Fertility Services offer a wide range of customization (for some of you.. almost TOO much customization) and options designed to work for your specific situation. 

Tine Weeder vs Harrow

A tine weeder is the modern day, highly improved version of a drag harrow. Many farmers still refer to a tined weeder as a Harrow.

If you’re considering buying a Harrow for your farm, the product you’ll receive is a tined weeder, also known as a tine weeder.

Can you move the tine sections?

Yes. The tine sections are adjustable to fit your field layout.

Do you have Hydraulic Tine Angle Adjustment?

Yes. That option is standard on most sizes. 

Do you have Hydraulic Down pressure on the tine section baskets?

Yes. That is an option added by many people – especially if it’s a bigger tine weeder and/or in terrain that is hilly/uneven ground. 

Why Are Tine Weeders So Effective?

Tine weeders are one of the single most effective methods of blind cultivation for better weed control, because of the way they target weeds without harming a plant’s growth. 

With the hundreds of individual tine sections and hydraulic down pressure on each individual basket and tine, the tine weeder moves rapidly back and forth across the top of the dirt to disturb the soil and remove unwanted weeds.

Types of Tine Weeders

As far as commercial agriculture is concerned, the tine weeder is not a new piece of equipment. In North America, however, farmers have not utilized tine weeders until more recent years. The tine weeder is a highly effective weed control implement for organic farmers, and there are several manufacturers of these implements.

How Does A Tine Weeder Work?

Tine weeders eradicate weeds by using slightly bent pieces of thin steel on a coil spring to apply pressure to the ground, which in turn removes small weeds when pulled over the ground. One of the major reasons tine weeders are so effective and cover so much of the ground is because of the back and forth action that results from their contact with the ground surface.
