Single weed brush adjustable (OKBZ)
Due to the changes in the law concerning the use of poison to combat weeds, Kemp has developed a weed brush. This weed brush removes weeds in an environmentally friendly manner and is therefore a good replacement for the poison. The weed brushes from Kemp are hydraulically driven, due to this rotating movement the weeds are loosened.
The weed brush is designed with a oscillating construction, so that the brush is ground-following, therefore it is not necessary to correct the height for irregularities of +/- 15 cm. At the same time, the angle of the brush can be adjusted by lifting the frame or lowering it for a more or less aggressive effect.
This weed brush can be connected to (mini) loaders, (mini) excavator, tractor, forklift etcetera, as long as the minimum oil yield is 25 liters. The OKB has one brush.
The weed brush is available as a mechanically (OKBZM) or hydraulically (OKBZ) pivoting version. The pivot point is placed close to the vehicle. This allows a large swivel range, namely 70 degrees to the left and to the right, so that the weed brush can reach far away from the vehicle and thus there is a good view on the brush.
The brush in the mechanical version can be adjusted manually.
The hydraulic swivelling version uses two cylinders, with which the brush can be put in the correct position.
- The brush can be operated with two hydraulic functions.
- The diameter of the brush is 750 mm. Option 1000 mm (only with steel wire). With a 750 mm brush, you can choose (1) 76 bundles of sheet steel or (2) 36 bundles of steel wire.
- Available with a brush made of sheet steel or steel cable.
- Weight ± 200 kg.
The weed brush is available with the attachments that belong to your vehicle (for the attachment parts, see the document: Kemp attachment parts).
For additional specifications, see the document: product specifications.
Tilting 15 degrees: A new option has been designed for a 3-point and forklift truck attachment. The option allows the machine to tilt the brush 15 degrees. Both front and back the brush can be adjusted by 15 degrees. The advantage here is that the brush can be used more aggressively by tilting.
Tilting the weed brush 15 degrees can be operated both mechanically and hydraulically.
Rubber flap: The rubber flap ensures that the weeds do not fly far away. The rubber flap can be adjusted in several positions.
Removable attachment parts: It is possible to order the attachments not welded but mounted with bolts and nuts. This allows you to easily replace the attachments when necessary.
Edging knife: The edge cutter ensures that the edges, for example from a lawn, are cut tightly. The edging knife is equipped with an obstacle protection by means of a heavy spring. Furthermore, the knife can be hydraulically folded up by means of cylinder. Mounting options for both left and right side.
Electric operation: With the electric control, the rotation and pivoting can be operated with 1 hydraulic function.
Joystick with magnetic base and cable: This option is required when operating electrically from the vehicle if it does not have an operating function with three positions.
Ball valves: When there is 1 hydraulic function, use can also be made of ball valves for pivoting. By turning the brush with the ball valves open, the brush will also pivot. At the moment the brush is in the correct position, close the ball valves and you can brush.
Non-pressurized return connection: If you expect to use the weed brush intensively, it is our advice to place this option.
Overpressure / after-turn valve: At an operating pressure above 225 bar, an overpressure must be installed to prevent overload.
The after-turn valve is to relieve the hydromotor when suddenly stopping or changing the direction of rotation of the brush.
