we sold Morris equipment as a sideline a sold a nuber of rod weeders we kept a new 36' on and used it for years I liked the way it killed weeds, if they went over the rod they were dead but you do need to have well loosened ground to use them we moboard plowed every spring then and it worked well, they even make a very nice seed bed for planting but we found here when planting winter wheat they lifted the cheat grass seeds up to perfect depth for growing along with the planted wheat causing issues so we quit using it, but then about 20 years ago we removed the rods and installed some cutting edges and made a leveler out of it I like it a lot maybe even better than before cnt

We just scrapped our Morris last week. It was a 49 footer. Longest we went between breakdowns was 25 hrs in the field. Too light for our heavy clay and sometimes rocky soils but did a good job. Just before we went no-till we bought a JD/Love rod weeder. Much better unit because it uses chisel plow shanks, 4"x4" frame, heavier rod, chains, boots and so on. Still have it just in case we decide to plow again.

What does a 49 footer weigh? Mine is about a 30 footer but it has a 4 inch frame.
thanks Shaun

I have no idea. Not much though considering their light construction.
