Leon Rodweeder

Anyone have an old Leon rodweeder sitting in the trees that you would be willing to part with? we are specifically looking for a 8264 or an 7964 machine.

it is harder to find replacement parts to keep these things going.

We are in the Assiniboia area but would be willing to travel to pick up a machine in good condition.

We have some rod weeders out back but I think they were Morris? Been hanging on to those jewels for when Glyphosate gets banned!

Have a 60ft in the tree row. Don't know what kind. I don't think it's been used since I've been alive. Ha

Have a 48 ft Leon. Good paint still. Pretty sure you would work pretty hard for any parts off it though. Stored in Southern Alberta desert.

Any way to grab a picture of the machine? I might be able to tell what it is

Are you saying the machine is Acetylene proof?

Gotta ask, why do you still use a rod weeder?

We farm organically, so after seeding we do a pre-emergant pass with the rod weeder that cleans out all of the small wild oats and stink weed. 2 days later the wheat emerges and nothing can catch it. Well that is the theory anyway. Timing is crucial so getting the biggest machine in field ready condition BEFORE seeding makes it easier to hit that window.

Thank you, organic production was my inner thought guess.

You need a set of those Morris Seedrites and then you seed and rodweed in one pass. Don't use them as much as before but still use my 8018s now and then including this spring for about a third of acres. I'm not organic but am not surgically attached or addicted to my sprayer either and they are a good fit in min till conditions and my go to choice on cereal crops designated for feed purposes. Have both Morris and Anderson rod weeders as well which see use now and then too.
