Non-toxic weed removal
Published:  09 December, 2014

nilfisk.jpgRochdale Council are utilising a NILFISK City Ranger outdoor machine for non-toxic weed ripping with reported excellent results. The liveried 4 wheel drive, 35 HP City Ranger 2250 is used almost exclusively for weed ripping that was previously carried out manually.

The Nilfisk City Ranger 2250 is one of a fleet of articulated outdoor machines that can be easily adapted for a wide range of functions. A full range of attachments provide for year round use including green maintenance, winter maintenance and street cleansing.

Nilfisk says the attachments are quickly and easily changed in minutes, the hydraulic hoses connecting at the turn of a handle. Weed control, rotary and mulch mowing, lawn edging, hedge trimming, snow sweeping and salt and sand spreading can all be carried out by the versatile City Ranger.

Rochdale Council had been carrying out weed control by hand before moving to mechanisation using the City Ranger 2250.
