Roadside Vegetation Management Solution.
This technology allows you to cut brush up to 4” in diameter and apply herbicide at the SAME TIME. There is no airborne drift or soil contamination.
This system can greatly reduce the amount of chemical applied per acre and controls where the chemicals are being applied. EcoBlade is only applied to what is being cut, absolutely nothing else.
The EcoBlade system can greatly reduce the costs to manage vegetation because we allow 2 jobs to be done at the same time AND reduce the amount of chemicals used.
Bottom of Blade
Hole for chemical
No chemical on deck shell indicates no drift. The chemical is only applied to the brush being cut.
This picture is from a demo that was done. The blue on the blade is a dye that was put into one of the tanks to show how the chemical works with the EcoBlade system.

Blade wing creates the air flow
Dye shown being brushed onto the stem after the cut.
Notice there is no dye except on the cut part of the stem.

Roller pump - each EcoBlade has one roller pump per spindle.
Electronic motor that turns the roller pump.
The motor spins the roller causing the pump to apply pressure to the hose, thus creating suction and pushing chemical to the blades.
This plot was done in Virginia using the Wet Blade system to mow and apply Plant Growth Regulators. You can see the staked in area where no chemical was used and the area around it where the EcoBlade mowed and treated with the Plant Growth Regulator Plateau. This picture was taken a few weeks after treatment.
This shows a highway median where no chemical was applied during mowing (left) and where the EcoBlade mowed and applied Plateau on the right. This picture was taken 50 days after treatment!
