Rope-A-DopeTM Gravity Flow Applicator
Gravity flow principle - pour chemical into pipe, tilt ropes to desired angle (45 degrees downward recommended), and wipe wet ropes across weeds. Allows safe application of non-selective chemical to control unwanted weeds and grasses above the crop. Durable wick ropes are made with a diamond braid, polyester jacket over an acrylic core and are easily removed for cleaning or replacing. Heavy wall 3" PVC pipe features threaded adapters to guard against leaks and is vented for continous flow. May require 2 passes (in opposite directions) in heavy infestations. 3mph recommended application speed.

Universal mounting brackets fit most tractors (does not fit JD4010/20)
Available in the following widths:
7.5 ft., 10 ft., 12.5 ft., 15 ft.,
17.5 ft., and 20 ft.

Applicators can be connected together for uninterrupted rope coverage by overlapping the end rope from one applicator to another
Create your own custom length by mixing/matching sizes
