Weed cutters and nets

Aquatic Weed Cutters and Rakes

Aquatic weeds and algae grow in shallow waters along the edge of ponds and lakes, in shallow swimming areas and around boat docks. In lakes they often grow between your boat docks and open waters causing problems for boaters and their families. There are 2 main tools that you can use to clean up around ponds and boat docks every day. The serrated weed cutter and the weed razor, below in the page. On ponds that are contained you can get a permit form the ministry of environment to use a product called Reward, a aquatic weed herbicide. Each one has its own job, so match it to the weeds you have and your weeds will become simple to control.

1) Aquatic Weed Cutter

The most effective bottom-cutting weed removal tool available on the market today, excellent for Chara removal. No need for dangerous and expensive chemicals; just cut the weeds along the bottom of the pond. Slide the weed cutter out on the surface of the pond with the 17’ handle. Let it settle to the bottom and pull back, bringing the weeds or chara back to the shore. On shore the weeds or chara (algae) will dry in a few minutes making it very light to take away.

Features

  • 28” double-edged, braced and serrated steel cutting blade encased in an aluminum frame
  • After cutting the AWE can function as a gathering tool.

  • There is little resistance because it slices the water weeds rather than dragging them
  • Pull behind a boat to clear path out into the lakes
  • The WeedRazer was improved for 2008 with the Weed Deflector. The Weed Deflector is an accessory for the Weed Razer designed to enhance the performance of the Weed Razer. All Weed Razers come with the Weed Deflector.
  • If you have lake or pond weeds, then the Weed Razer is the perfect tool for you.
  • Once you cut or shear the lake or pond weed, we recommend that you remove the cut vegetation from the water. Decaying vegetation will provide nutrients that can stimulate new vegetation.

As the weeds are full of oxygen they float to the top very quickly for easy removal. The weeds often only grow once or twice a year or you can trim as necessary. Using our own heavy duty aquatic weed net, (seen below) touchups are quick and easy.
