In organic agriculture where chemical herbicides are not used, getting rid weeds in the fields is an important issue. This is a brush cutter that facilitates the removal of weeds while sustaining eco-environmental cultivation. Its design is inspired by the expandability of tyres, which would help overcome the problems associated with operating brush cutters in muddy paddy fields. It eases the weeding burden of farmers significantly by being conducive to operate in the mud. For even more convenience, it has a foldable body design that improves storage solutions of agricultural machinery. The blade can be folded up so that farmers can easily store and transport the equipment to and from the field.
