Revolutionary technologies that improve the safety and cost-efficiency of vegetation management
IVM Group is committed to improving safety and increasing the aesthetics and lifetime value of green space environments, while decreasing costs associated with management strategies. This commitment has resulted in a number of EcoSmart® technologies, several of which have become adopted as industry best practice. Our aim is to continue investing in the development of safer, greener and more cost-effective methods of deploying vegetation management solutions.
IVM Group develops revolutionary technologies that improve the safety and cost-efficiency of vegetation management. Our focus on innovation and design has produced a series of products that have changed the way government bodies and private sector clients manage vegetation and green open space assets.
The DriftProof® shielded sprayer applies liquid products, such as selective herbicides, fertilisers and soil conditioners. The patented shield prevents potentially harmful spray droplets from escaping into the atmosphere, making it much safer for operators, the public and the environment, while reducing chemical use by up to 70%.
This purpose-built vehicle is a breakthrough in safely working on roads. The Safety Cell® securely locates an operator in a dual-sided occupant capability outside the cab of the vehicle. While designed initially to provide a safer environment for both workers and other road users the capsule also enables a more efficient and effective way to work on roads.
The EcoWash system is a vehicle and equipment cleaning facility that captures contaminated wastewater for reuse. Designed to remove chemical residue, plus filter weed seeds and other organic particles, the captured wastewater can be reintroduced into the field and deployed as part of vegetation management operations.
The EcoSpray technology is a state-of-the-art mobile spraying unit which raises the bar to a new level in urban vegetation management. It projects a safe, efficient and professional image to the public inspiring confidence in the way we use products in public open spaces. This modern, safe, reliable 4 x 4 vehicle is fitted with a fully enclosed, lockable canopy, designed to gain high public acceptance of urban weed control. The unit also tolerates non-potable water.
The Weed Hunter® is an innovative vehicle mounted direct target weed control unit. Deploying an integrated technology platform based on sensors, an auto mix system and spray nozzles which is driven by a customised software platform.
The SmartWiper™ is a breakthrough in the control of problem tall weeds in mown areas. This highly innovative system accurately applies herbicide to problem tall grass weeds in mown surfaces, with a safe, controlled wiping action. The unit also features a computerised ‘no drip’ control of herbicide feed to wiping pad ensuring non-target areas are unaffected.
Universal Wheel Hitch
The Universal Wheel Hitch enables linking of an implement directly on to the front or rear wheels of a prime mover, creating a single unit that is far more responsive and easier to control, even in reverse. With this wheel system, the implement precisely tracks the path of the prime mover. The Universal Wheel Hitch also significantly shortens the overall length of the unit, reducing the turning circle to near zero and dramatically improving maneuverability.
The Weed Brush is a lightweight, compact applicator that delivers a controlled dose of herbicide directly to the weed through contact. The durable internal mechanism tolerates all industrial strength chemicals, enabling treatment of a broad variety of weed threats with guaranteed effective and rapid results. The Weed Brush platform has the potential to be used in conjunction with a ready to use (RTU) chemical storage container, creating a no touch system.
