AS 30 E-WeedHex: Control weeds with electrical power
The AS 30 E-WeedHex is a variant of the weed remover without combustion engine. The E-version performs the same work as the WeedHex with conventional motorisation, however it does so without exhaust, more quietly and with less vibration. Thus first and foremost it is suited for cleaning walkways or driveways in noise-sensitive areas.
Compared with chemical herbicides, mechanical weed removers offer the great advantages that they are gentle on the environment and they are permitted to be used everywhere. The AS 30 E-WeedHex works virtually without emissions: The lithium-ion rechargeable battery with a maximum voltage of 82 volts achieves a high brushing force that is comparable to that of the combustion engine model. Depending on the brush type that is mounted and the application, one battery charge enables low-noise work for 30 to 45 minutes. This is fully sufficient for a smaller parking lot or a courtyard surface, for example in a noise-sensitive environment in the surrounding area of hospitals, care facilities, residential areas, schools or daycare centers. The LED display shows the charge status of the battery. For charging, the battery can be changed without tools; charging itself takes 75 minutes for 100 percent capacity, 40 minutes for 80 percent capacity. Charger and battery are included in the scope of delivery.
Easy cleaning of cobblestone pavement or kerbstones
Like the conventionally motorised model, the AS 30 E-WeedHex removes weeds forcefully. This is due to the high torque at simultaneously lower brush speeds of just 600 rpm (due to the lower gear ratio). Thus uneven surfaces, such as cobblestone pavement or along kerbstones and drain gutters can be efficiently cleaned. Through the individually height-adjustable wheels the brush of the AS 30 E-WeedHex can tilt diagonally, so that even edge areas or areas which are difficult to access can be cleared of weeds. Different brushes are available depending on the implementation area and ground covering: For sensitive surfaces, such as natural stone or wooden planks the special Nylon brush is recommended, the device is factory equipped with a brush plate made of steel.
More convenient work with braided wire brushes
AS-Motor GmbH offers a new brush carrier that is equipped with the proven braided brushes of the AS 50 WeedHex for even more cleanliness on bumpy terrain. The brushes can be easily changed without tools, thanks to a fast change system. This is especially practical for users who employ the AS 30 E WeedHex for precleaning in edge areas, in order to subsequently clean the remaining large area with the AS 50 WeedHex. The braided wire brush really shows its advantages on an uneven surface: Its lines give way to unevenness, and thus there are virtually no kickbacks. In addition it is particularly good in cleaning out uneven areas, and with a working width of 42 centimetres it is also fast. The new AS 30 E-WeedHex is by no means inferior to its colleague model with combustion engine. Where emissions, noise and vibration are concerned, it even does better.
