Our Sweeps attachment for the Hoss Wheel Hoe slices through the soil like butter to eliminate existing weeds and prevent new weeds from growing. This set includes a left and a right sweep which can be set in many different locations along the wheel hoe toolbar for a wide variety of setups. The Sweeps attachment fits the Hoss Single, Double and High Arch Wheel Hoes.
Our Sweeps are made with a hardened, 3/16″ steel that is zinc-coated to protect from rusting. The blade is 7″ long and razor sharp when you receive it. The sharpened, hardened blade will slice through the hardest soils and uproot heavy weeds with ease. For best results, use at least once a week to keep weeds from getting larger than the small, threadlike stage.
This is our most versatile weeding attachment due to the many different configurations that are possible. The angles on the left and right blades are slightly offset so that they can be configured inward to overlap one another. This allows you to adjust the weeding path from 8″ to 14″ when the sweeps are turned inward similar to a hula hoe or stirrup hoe setup.
The blades can also be turned outwards for a straddle-weeding setup. This works great on our Double Wheel Hoe or High Arch Wheel Hoe. The straddle-weeding configuration allows you to straddle a row of small plants and weed both sides of the plants in one pass. You can easily adjust the distance between the sweeps for rows of plants that are wider than others.
