Advantages

The auger removes the roots of the giant hogweed ergonomically and effectively, preventing the plant from germinating again. Control of giant hogweed is mandatory in all European Union countries partly due to the harmful effect of the toxic substance in the sap of the plant on the skin and eyes. Also other plants are unable to survive under its large canopy. The soil deteriorates in quality and becomes susceptible to erosion. Along watercourses, this is a major problem for embankments, dikes and flood defences.
