Overview

Stop weeds in their tracks and maintain the health of your crop with the field-proven 3400/3500 Conventional Rotary Hoe.

Great job of lifting and redistributing the residue

"I tested a roller harrow and compared the results to that of the Yetter Rotary Hoe. I like the Rotary Hoe better. It does a great job of lifting and redistributing the residue, but it doesn't break off and level the crowns and standing stalks."
