The Kersten WE 090 with a working width of 900 mm is the ideal tool for renovating weed ridden or compacted gravel pathways. The tools get between the gravel, decompacting it and loosening the weeds so they can be raked or blown off the surface.
The WE Series is sold without tools. Tools must be selected for the application which the machine is being used for. The Angled knife set is for using on water bound surfaces. The knives can be lowered to the correct height so there is minimal interference with the sub base. The knives de‐compact the surface. Not only this, but because of the angle, they can cut under the root of the weed and lift the whole plant to the surface including the soil attached to the root, where it can be easily blown or raked off. This not only leaves the surface free of weeds, but also allows it to drain properly, and the filling to be distributed evenly across the path to avoid pot‐holes.
An aggressive chisel set with carbide tips can be used to loosen extremely compacted surfaces made from crushed stone or water bound materials. Any weeds will be loosened by the chisels and can be picked out from the looses surface. This will restore the drainage properties of the surface and allow it to be distributed evenly across the path to avoid pot‐holes.
The weed brush can also be fitted to the WE Series. This is for use on hard surfaces, such as tarmac or concrete. The brushes loosen the compacted gravel if present and also loosen soil and weeds from the hard surface, so it can be collected. This process will also allow any gravel to be evenly distributed across the surface to avoid pot‐holes.
