Sickle Bar

Sickle Bar

This optional add on is specifically designed to cut lake weeds to a depth of 15-16” with remote control, but can be set to a maximum depth of 24″ manually. The aluminum sickle cutter attachment is easy to remove and can quickly be added back on when cutting rooted weeds.

Skimmer Booms

Skimmer Booms

The optional skimmer boom extensions make removing floating algae as simple as driving forward. The floating booms act as a funnel, feeding surface debris onto the harvesting bed

Net Extensions

Net Extensions

The net extensions channel weeds and other debris onto the conveyor allowing for faster more efficient harvesting.

Launch and Removal

Waterbug is designed to be operated by a single person.

The Waterbug trailer can easily be hooked up to a garden tractor or ATV/UTV and backed into the water. A handle bar modification is also included so the machine can be wheeled into the water by hand.

Once removed from the water, Waterbug can collapse, making for easy transportation and storage.
