Works well for me especially with tussock.

Peter - QLD

The owners and staff of Redback were great to deal with. The communication and advice was excellent, and the product we selected, the Weedwiper, has been a brilliant addition to our needs on the farm, having manually sprayed for years it cuts down time and effort dramatically. The unit’s effectiveness has had everyone on the farm sincerely impressed. I would recommend the unit to anyone with a weed problem across large tracts of land, and Redback to deal with when you have a farming problem.

David - NSW

Simon - NSW

I have been consistently achieving a 95% kill rate. I absolutely love it!

Bill - VIC

The Redback follows the contours with the wheels which is fabulous… No more chemical spill due to breakages. The double wipe allows a much better kill rate and the bruise bar helps the penetration. So the Redback has a far higher kill rate. On our paddocks it has been as high a 95% and the least has been 80%. I would recommend the Redback Weedwiper

Lynn - QLD

We are very pleased with the weedwiper.  It took me about 3-4 tankloads to work out how often and for how long I need to pump the herbicide onto the wicks then I was cool and groovy!!  Have had an 85-90% kill rate with the wiping of our tussocks
