Spring Orders 2018

ATTENTION:  The window for ordering Farm-Market equipment for delivery this Spring has Closed.  Apologies to any that did not do so in time.

Our fabricators are busy and require sufficient lead time to fulfill our orders so we can ensure shipping by the end of March.

By their estimate, a 2nd rush-order parts production run to serve late orders is only feasible for them if received by Jan 10th. 

On that basis, we will accept 'provisional' orders with a down-payment provided it is received by January 9th.  These will be refunded immediately if there are too few orders for the fabricators to undertake a prioritized production run.

On a positive note, since we received late orders in each of the last few years, we prepared two more of our most popular model than have been ordered to date - the 4-Basket unit. These will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis.

Again, our apologies for any inconvenience to those who would like to receive equipment this Spring.

And, MANY THANKS to those who ordered equipment this year!

We really appreciate your support. We will continue our best efforts to provide the best thermal weed control tools available anywhere. We are here to serve you and help make your work easier, more effective, more efficient, and less costly.

Best Wishes to all for a productive and profitable 2018!

NEW! Announcing 3 new Innovations, including our new 'Field Cart'!

1.)  Our new Easy-In/Easy-Out Burner Mounting System makes the installation, removal, and maintenance of your burners very easy.  Standard on all new Farm-Market models and available to All previous buyers.

2.) T-Track Basket Mounting System!  Standard now on all of our Farm-Market units:  an innovative Mounting/Dismounting System for our thermal baskets; this revolutionary but oh-so-simple system allows users to install, remove, change basket spacing, and change/mix basket types very quickly and easily using t-tracks.  These too are also available to All previous buyers.

3.) We will soon be unveiling our new "Field-Cart", an innovative and highly effective tool for small farms and other 'off-road' applications where hand tools are too small for the job yet tractor mounted equipment may often be more than is needed or necessary.  It is light weight, handles very well, travels easily over uneven terrain due to its large bicycle-style wheels, and gets the job done quickly and effectively with minimum fuel use.  Our new 'Backpack' will also be available soon for those who want the greatest mobility possible with this device as well as with our SpHot Weeders.  The pictures below shows results of an early field trial on a driveway with new weed seedlings that have received treatments of different intensity to examine how users can manage their travel speed to suit their control standards and requirements. First photo is 1 day after treatment; 2nd picture is 3 days later, with weeds that were not incinerated during 1st application turning color as they die. This illustrates that while incineration of weeds can be useful or even important in some instances, all that is required for effective control of seedling weeds is to cause destruction of their cell structure due to exposure to high temperatures for 2- 3 seconds.

AND, Stay Tuned for MORE Innovations!!!   Coming Soon - A.) special Liners for our thermal baskets that will make our Farm-Market and Field-Cart equipment more efficient and effective than ever;  B.)  Our more powerful YETI 1 Burner System will DOUBLE the BTU output of our original Farm-Market Thermal Baskets to 720,000 BTU's. And, we are working on our own liquid burner that will have even more power while retaining our equipment's great efficiency;  C.) a new Full Wind Screen System that will surround our Farm-Market thermal baskets, making them more resistant to wind while improving effectiveness and even travel speed.

As with each of our innovations, these valuable new improvement will be available to All previous buyers - we work very hard to ensure anyone who purchases our equipment is not 'obsoleted' from the valuable new innovations we develop to improve our equipment. 

Join the Movement to Modern Thermal Weed Control using our unique and high performance equipment.

New! Innovative design makes for great tool flexibility.

Exciting new development in equipment design:  Adjustable/Removable Baskets!  Latest tool development shown here is the ability to adjust the position of or combine the types of Baskets on the Windscreen!  Baskets can be mounted or dismounted quickly and easily.

Pictured are two units w/2 Round Baskets each, for treating the 14" wide aisles of a Pennsylvania farmer's bed cropping system ... eliminating weeds growing where the tractor's tires travel and on the side slopes of the beds.

Treatment intensity and frequency can be used to manage the amount of vegetation in the aisles and on the side slopes of a bed cropping system (i.e., controlling weed density, height, seed dispersal, etc. can provide vegetative cover while minimizing unwanted weed development impacts) - "thermal mowing" is a little known and used weed control practice even though it can help manage erosion issues and stabilize the side slopes of permanent beds.  Not all weeds need to be completely eliminated all the time ... using weeds can be advantageous.

The Baskets can be adjusted to pinpoint the application of the thermal treatments, and, an additional Round Basket can be added to each unit to increase its output and impact as needed.  

More innovations coming: New thermal insulation liners to increase thermal efficiency and effectiveness of the Baskets.  Stay tuned!

Farm-Market Upgrade! More BTU's!

Each of our Farm-Market toolbar units now include 3 Burners per Basket ... adding 50% more thermal output! This will increase your weed control treatment impact while still maintaining unparalleled fuel efficiency due to our unique Basket-Liner design.  Current equipment owners can easily upgrade their units - contact Sunburst for details.

And stay tuned!  Coming soon -  a layer of insulation is being added to each Farm-Market Basket!  This lightweight but highly effective insulation will increase treatment impact and fuel efficiency by further containing the energy produced inside our high-performance Baskets. The new liner will also help provide added wind protection. Why use old-school open-flame burners which allow wasteful loss of the thermal energy that is needed for weed control!

This new feature will be standard on all future equipment.  And again, in keeping with our commitment to Sunburst's customers, the new liners as with all of our equipment developments can be added to your existing system ...  we will not "obsolete" our customers, forcing them to buy new equipment to be able to enjoy the benefits of our on-going technical improvements. We appreciate our clients and respect their need for a return on investment in purchasing our equipment;  our mission is to help them work effectively and efficiently and provide them with quality tools that will serve them well now and into the future.
