AS 30 WeedHex 160

Mechanical weed removal for professional use

Like its little brother the AS 30 WeedHex 140, the AS 30 WeedHex 160 uses mechanical methods to remove weeds in an environmentally responsible manner, without the use of chemicals. Its steel brush’s high torque, thanks to a speed of just 600 rpm, removes even the most stubborn weeds.

The AS 30 WeedHex 160 weighs 38 kg and delivers work rates up to 1,000 m²/h. A reduced brush speed also minimizes the danger of stone impact and dust creation, enabling safe work. A protective cloth is mounted on the device so there is no need to shield work areas with panels or cloths. The AS 30 WeedHex 160 is factory-equipped with a snorkel filter that protects the engine from dust and other contaminants.

Designed for use on uneven surfaces such as cobblestones, along gutters and in corners, the AS 30 WeedHex 140’s wheels can be asymmetrically adjusted in height which places the brush at an incline. This means the AS 30 WeedHex 140 can get into places that cannot be reached with larger devices.

Product advantages

Reduced brush speed

The reduced brush speed of 600 rpm and protective cloth enable safe work with minimal risk of stone ejection or dust.

Perfect edge-clearing

Lateral offset between brush and chassis enables perfect edge-clearing.

Asymmetric chassis adjustment

Individually height-adjustable wheels (four levels) allow edges and depressions to be even more effectively cleared out and cleaned.

High brush torque

Engine/brush gear reduction more than doubles the torque for stubborn weeds.

Handle bar
