Copied from the popular horse-drawn Swiss Bucher tool, the Néo-Bucher is the fruit of a collaboration between the organisation Hippotese and Atelier Paysan. Conserving the qualities of the original design and incorporating new improvements, such as the adjustable handlebar or the suspension spring, we have created a tool which is accessible, replicable and even more functional than its original.
The guiding principle of our design was to keep the technical qualities of the original tool-bars, which through many years of use have shown to be perfectly adapted to precision weeding and ridging work in organic vegetable production, whilst adding new adaptations which improve the working conditions both for the horse and the human. As well as ergonomic considerations, we designed the Néo-Bucher so that new tools (such as finger weeders) could be fitted onto the existing tool bar.
