This equipment is used for weeding in paddies or fields, and farmers would push it from behind to remove weeds and till the soil shallowly. Before the weeder was developed, a hoe was used for weeding. Weeders are made of steel and composed of the harrow blades, the body, the stalk and the handle. Despite variations from weeder from weeder, one to four cylinders of harrow blades are attached to the body. When pushed from behind, the blades roll like a wheel and remove weed while tilling the field.
