 The WaterBug is 5.4’ wide by 11’ 9” long but weighs only 370 lbs. and boasts a storage bunk capacity of 600 lbs. which is double the capacity over the 2.0 model! This makes it easy for one person to use as it fits on a compact trailer that can be pulled behind a 4-wheeler or garden tractor.

It floats in as little as 4” of water and can cut and skim 34” wide, is adjustable to 15-16” water depth by remote control (can be set manually to a depth of 24″), and features long-lasting batteries that can operate 5 hours on a single charge.

The WaterBug has a remote sight range of 1,000 feet making it an ideal solution for individual pond owners and golf courses in need of an effective pond weed and algae solution!
