THE ECOBLADE IS UNIQUE IN IT’S TREATMENT OF MAJOR WOODY WEEDS and should be your first option of treatment, particularly for Gorse (furze).
It CUTS, MULCHES & CHEMICALLY PAINTS the cut stumps. This is the same method as hand cutting and painting but has the added advantage of mulching the woody weed tops and is done on a much bigger scale.
Because the technology is considered new you will not read about it in any of the weed journals, although a few articles are now being published, mostly related to the work done by Regional Vic Farm Services.
WE ARE THE WORLD LEADERS OF THE PRACTICAL APPLICATION OF THIS TECHNOLOGY.
Look what it does to gorse:
THE CHANGE IS PERMANENT!
The advantages of using the EcoBlade are:
Regional Vic Farm Service has an EcoBlade that can cut a 6 foot swathe. Because it is mounted out the front of a 100 hp rubber tracked Terex compact loader, we can work on slopes, soft ground and in tight areas.
Mulching chews up all the woody weed above ground without applying chemical. IT DOES NOT KILL THE ROOT SYSTEM.
This means that there is a healthy root system that will always regrow, so all that has happened is that you get a glimpse of what your land would look like without the woody weed. The mulch created in this way actually enhances the germination of new seedlings.
The EcoBlade mulches as well as placing chemical on the cut stumps that is IMMEDIATELY sealed in the root system, thus killing the whole plant. Interestingly it also seems to inhibit the growth of seedlings.
So, mulching creates a cycle of increasing weed renewal and the EcoBlade removes the weed from your land.
These photos were taken at Drummond North 6 months and 3 years after the gorse was cut with the EcoBlade.
There has been very little regrowth from the 1.5 metre tall gorse, so thick I could not walk through it, nor see over it!!!
In the photo below you can see the grass starting to grow through the old mulch, but no new gorse.
