With two models and a few variations available, there is a Water Weedsickle to suit your specific needs and budget! Chose the one right for your boat and budget.
It can be a challenge to access some areas to remove aquatic plants growing on the lake bottom or near a shoreline. The Water Weedsickle attaches to your boat and is designed to easily cut submerged aquatic plants, especially in hard to access areas. The Weedsickle can be installed on the bow, stern or on either side of the boat. The power source is either a 12 or 24 Volt battery that runs a 1/5HP motor (Deep Cycle Marine Battery not included). The cutting bar is connected to a stainless-steel tube and a connecting plate, in order to ensure a safe and secure attachment. The cutting time on a fully charged battery is between 6 – 8 hours depending on the thickness of the weeds. It is possible to place two units side by side in order to cut a width of 8 feet. This tool works best on finer weeds like water milfoil (Myriophyllum sp) rather than tougher stemmed plants like cattails or bulrushes (Typha latifolia).

These weed cutters are designed and built with commercial and private applications in mind.
We recommend cutting your plants 3 times per season; at the end of spring, in the middle of summer and a final cut in the fall. This method will help you reduce plant growth from one year to the next. Collect cut plants using a weed rake and make sure the proper application of Muck Beneficial Bacteria is used to help break down and consume the stems that remain, to help prevent bad odours come spring.
