Neptune Rake

The Neptune Rake is an innovative yet affordable harvester/dredger that can be used for both harvesting submersed lake and pond vegetation or dredging muck and partially decomposed vegetation from your lake or pond bottom.  It consists of a 2-section aluminum rake that is just over 7’ wide x 40” deep, a heavy-duty foam cell float that is 6.5‘wide x 36” deep which tethers to the rake and serves as the deployment mechanism for the rake, 720 feet of 12 mm sea steel winch and gather rope, and an optional heavy-duty capstan winch powered by the bullet-proof GX35 Honda gas engine.

The Neptune Rake System can be assembled in about 10 minutes and two people can easily deploy and operate from your lake or pond shoreline.  Once deployed, the Neptune Rake can harvest up to 2,000 lbs of wet aquatic vegetation and muck in a single pass!  The Neptune Rake is fabricated with marine grade stainless steel and is designed to harvest and dredge dense lake weeds and thick muck!

It’s More Than Just a BIG Rake.

  • A two-section marine grade stainless steel rake that is just over 7’ wide x 40” deep.

The Neptune Rake is the only product on the market that can harvest lake and pond weeds and dredge lake muck and sediment simultaneously! 

When you compare the Neptune Rake to expensive dredging alternatives or harmful herbicide treatments this feature provides lake and pond owners with a relatively affordable and eco-friendly option for preventing lake weeds from overtaking your lake and pond and sediment from filling in your body of water.

Simple Operation but Big Results. 

It takes just 10 minutes to assemble the rake system to be ready to operate. The off-set tines of the rake force aquatic weeds to zig zag up through the rake and jam, weeds are up rooted and cropped at their base, the rake also gathers sediment and sludge. The winch hauls the loaded rake right up onto dry land, two men then simply tip it forwards to dump the aquatic weeds then set it back on the float for the next haul. Mobile pond life have to opportunity to return to the pond unharmed.

Neptune Setup

Lay out gather rope to far shore and attach the winch to a suitable tree or ground anchor then set the rake on the float.

Neptune Position

The float is then pulled to the area of the pond you want to begin harvesting.

Neptune Deploy

The Neptune Rake is easily deployed by pulling on both gather rope and winch rope, the rake slides off the float and lands on the lake floor. 

Neptune Rake Step

The winch is then used to haul the rake across the lake floor gathering aquatic weeds, debris and muck and sediment. 

Neptune Empty

The winch hauls the loaded rake right up onto dry land, two men then simply tip it forwards to dump the weed then set it back on the float for the next haul. Mobile pond life have to opportunity to return to the pond unharmed.
