Weedtechnics Satusteam™ weed control machines are not just another option for commercial weed killers,
but a conscious choice to help you reduce the widespread use of toxic chemical weedkillers like glyphosate, simazine, 2.4 D amine and trifluralin. We value the words of Wendell Berry –“What I stand for is what I stand on.” Being driven by our mission and conscious about improvingsoil sustainability, we set about to invent a solution that uses just water to kill weeds and be farmore effective than steam or hot water. We did it in 2004 and since then have constantly been improving the delivery systems.
Our machines are designed to operate with our patented Satusteam™ technology. Satusteam™ is a unique combination of boiling water and saturated steam at low pressure. When weeds are hit with Satusteam , they are cooked instantly, leaving behind a chemical-free mulch for soil organisms to feed on. As a result, your soil health improves over time.
Satusteam™ weeding machines are a result of deep research, meticulous planning and excellent manufacturing. We are always listening to the needs of our customers, our market, our industry and consistently work to broaden our range.
Weedtechnics Satusteam™ machines are already making a difference in Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the USA. Designing a tailored weed control solution for your specific needs begins here.

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.

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.
Your choice matters.
It’s time to ditch those chemicals! Control weeds with water that is safe enough to drink.
