Our story started with a question: Is your weed killer killing you? It was soon coupled with another one: How about a weed killer that is safe enough to drink?
Weedtechnics was born as an answer, in 1999, right here, in the heart of Sydney and in the mind of one man—Jeremy Winer, the Managing Director and CEO of our company. And guess what our weed killer is? Plain water!
There are no chemicals, no toxins, no spray drift, no danger to your heart and lungs if you, your staff, customers, general public, waterways and wildlife breathe freely while you are weeding and absolutely no danger to the health of your soil.
We manufacture robust, commercial-grade weeding machines that operate on our patented technology, called Satusteam. It is a unique combination of boiling water and saturated steam that cooks weed instantly.
We exist to innovate and develop technology for safe weed control that replaces toxins,minimises harm to our ecosystem, and allows you to breath easy and walk barefoot in a regenerating world.
Our vision is to have our Satusteam technology providing organic weed control in every community, and through our efforts empower new business opportunities and create local, safe, meaningful employment.
The Weedtechnics People
A Few Words From Our Customers
We tried various organic methods including Pelargonic acid, pine oils, and mechanical weeding but the machines from Weedtechnics were far more practical and efficient. Over the last 12 months, we have been receiving lots of interest and positive feedback from the public and are constantly receiving emails and calls regarding chemical-free weed management. When using any new tool for chemical-free weed management, it takes some time to familiarize yourself with the mechanical and operational aspects including various attachments, Weedtechnics have made this possible with their ongoing support. SW Machines have helped us meet our company objective by achieving great results in chemical-free weed control, more than any other chemical-free method in the marketplace today.

Over the past few years Council has been using Weedtechnics in these high-use areas to minimise weeds and maximize environmental protection, with great results. Not only are the weeds being eradicated but there is no chemical run-off into the waterways and no down time to running the program as there are no issues with weather (e.g. wind, rain).

Once you use this machine it seems like there is no other realistic option that makes any time or financial sense. I don’t know that there are that many offerings out there right now, but having used this for some 200 hours, I’m very impressed with the system. It does work, it works for our farm, it keeps us older farmers in business.

Facilities Manager, University of Colorado Builder, USA
I purchased a Green Ninja ‘Stealth’ during the summer. This machine takes steam weed control to the next level.
It combines high performance with quiet electric operation in a package that is much easier to use, and I could not be happier – Good on you, Mate!
Landscape Contractor Magazine, AU
Overall, I think this weed killing technology from Weedtechnics is an excellent product– it is environmentally friendly compared to traditional chemical weed control applications, results are faster and it is much safer for the operator.
Byron Shire Council
The purchase of new steam weeding machine from Weedtechnics was great news for local residents who are concerned about the use of chemicals. We are using the steam weeder in children’s playgrounds, retail areas of our towns and villages and other popular spaces such as picnic areas. The SW machine is highly effective at killing weeds.

Bushtekniq Pty Ltd
The team at Weedtechnics have been excellent from Day One: from initial product enquiry to ongoing solid customer service. Once we purchased this major asset for our chemical-free bush regeneration company, we received training, resources, and support to broaden our skills as owners and operators of the SW900. Having a Satusteam Weeder has opened doors for our business and created endless opportunity to network across industry, community and indeed with anybody interested in responsible and ethical practice in Caring for Country.
City of Fremantle, WA
The City of Fremantle has used non chemical weed control for a number of years now and Weedtechnics has been the successful tenderer for the past 3 years. The City has had experience with a number of machines with limited success until the Weedtechnics range was brought to Western Australia. The great advantage for the city is the positive feedback we receive from the community because we are not applying chemicals to our streetscapes which border the ocean and the river and also our complaint levels have dropped to a point where we have not received a complaint for over a year now.
