If you need to get rid of water weeds, these two tools can be effective whether used alone or in combination.
To clear weeds from overgrown ponds without tearing up the bottom, the Weed Razer Pro slices aquatic plants off at the stem like an underwater scythe. Just pitch the head into the water and drag it back using the 30’ buoyant rope. You can adjust the span of the stainless-steel blades from 30” to 60” wide to target precise areas, or cut a broad swath to clear large areas quickly. Largely made of galvanized steel and aluminum, it weighs 9 lb and comes with a sharpener as well as blade covers for safe storage.
Used to gather loose weeds and debris from ponds, beaches and wet areas, the Weed Raker works two ways. To rake on or near the bottom, you can use the slow-sinking head as is, or fill it with sand or other weight to sink it faster. To collect material from the surface, you can make the rake head float by attaching a length of foam pool noodle or other buoyant material. The 37” wide head lets you cover large areas quickly and the strong, flexible plastic tines deflect off rocks and obstructions. Made of aluminum and weighing less than 7 lb, it can be held by the 11’ handle or pitched and retrieved using the 43’ rope.
Each tool is also available separately.
Before using these products on public waterways, consult local environmental regulations, as some jurisdictions prohibit removal of native plants from waterways and shorelines. We also recommend identifying any vegetation you’re dealing with, since disturbing some invasive aquatic plants can help them spread.
