Weeds grow everywhere, and sometimes in areas difficult to access, such as embankments or alongside/beneath guard rails. Until now, there was no available solution in the market to remove weeds in hard-to-access areas.
The XPA is part of AGXTEND’s XPower™ family of electric weeding solutions. It is only available commercially in Europe for the moment, exclusively through CNH Industrial. Please click below for more information.
XPower XPA combines the established capabilities of the XPower XPU unit with the versatility of a hydraulic arm, allowing the benefits of this weed control solution to be extended to hard-to-access areas. With a 1.2m working width, a working speed of 1.0-5.0 km/h and an 8,000-volt capacity to instantly incapacitate weeds, including invasive plants and chemical-resistant weeds, the system provides fast and effective control in an environmentally responsible manner.
The hydraulic arm that can be supplied with the XPA system is compatible with tractors of 200hp and above that have the dimensions and weight to be able to handle a large operating radius with a range of up to 7.2m from the centre of the tractor to the centre of the XPA unit. Full integration of the hydraulic arm into the tractor frame ensures maximum stability, with comfortable and precise operation via electrical proportional control. The 360-degree control head with automatic levelling function and special XPower safety features helps ensure safe and efficient operation.
