Weed control machines

Weeds disappear ... with DiBO and Heatweed

Increasing numbers of authorities are prohibiting pesticides in the fight against weeds. So public services, schools, hospitals, crèches, care establishments, etc. must go in search of an alternative. In 2014 DiBO developed the ultimate solution: the WeedKiLLER, for the environmentally-friendly killing of weeds and moss using hot water. As a weed control machine and high pressure cleaner in one, the WeedKILLER soon stood out as the ultimate multifunctional cleaning solution.

Weed killing with hot-water technology

Our revolutionary series of weed control machines was also noticed by the innovative Norwegian company Heatweed, a global player in ecological weed control. Heatweed Technologies has already been producing the most efficient and economically attractive machines that use hot-water technology based on leading investigations for more than 35 years.

The engineers from Heatweed have been working with plant researchers on finding a result that uses no chemicals, with every respect for the natural world. Just like we are doing at DiBO. Because both our companies believe in the power of sustainable cooperation, DiBO has been incorporating the Heatweed technology in all its machines. This has resulted in a new generation of weed control machines.

Heatweed, the second generation weed control machine

This generation of weed control machines is produced by DiBO and marketed by Heatweed. DiBO will also be the importer for the Netherlands. The machines are characterised by their powerful operation and many advantages.

Operation:

The Heatweed method is based on thermal weed control, being the transfer of the energy (heat) to the plant. Heatweed introduced the hot-water method in Europe and it has proved to be the safest and best solution. The weed control machines tackle weeds in the most efficient way without pesticides by spraying with hot water. Studies indeed show that water hotter than 83 °C immediately kills weeds. Water’s thermal conductivity means it can penetrate deep into the ground and kill roots and seeds. Because the weeds are not able to flower or spread, there is also a preventive effect and weeds are kept away longer.

Advantages:

  • A minimal environmental impact: research has demonstrated that hot water is the most effective alternative to pesticides
  • Highly effective: Three treatments per year suffice (depending on the weeds and the weather conditions during application)
  • Kills just about all kinds of weeds
  • For use on any surface
  • Multifunctional: weed and moss killer, high pressure sewer and paving cleaner
  • For use by two persons at the same time
  • Safe: temperature, pressure and water flow protection
