Aquatic Weed Harvesters

Aquatic Plant Harvester, Weed Harvester

Aquatic Plant Harvesters offer an environmentally sound method of controlling excessive aquatic plant growth and nuisance vegetation in waterways of all sizes. These heavy duty work boats are highly efficient in the management of submerged, emergent and free floating aquatic vegetation.

Like an underwater lawn mower, an aquatic weed harvester cuts the vegetation, collecting and storing the weeds on board. Aquatic weed harvesters are fitted with a pick up conveyor at the forward end of the machine, which can be lowered up to six feet deep to cut weeds. One horizontal and two vertical cutter bars sever the vegetation as the machine moves forward through the water, and, when the storage hold becomes full, the weed harvester returns to shore to unload.

Depending on the size of your lake, the type of your weeds, the percentage of weeds you would like to remove, and how quickly you would like to harvest them, we will work with you to design a fully customizable weed harvester to meet your exact needs.  

Although many of our mechanical weed harvesters are customized to match the needs for your lake, a variety of models are available at stock sizes ranging between 100 feet3 (or 1,500 lbs) and 1,050 feet3 (or 16,800 lbs) for capacity of cut vegetation held on board.

Verona New Jersey to go Phosphate-Free? - Phosphates enter waterways from human and animal waste, phosphorus rich bedrock, laundry, cleaning, industrial effluents, and fertilizer runoff. These phosphates become detrimental when they over fertilize aquatic plants and cause stepped up eutrophication. If too much phosphate is present in the water the algae and weeds will grow rapidly, may choke the waterway, and use up large amounts of precious oxygen (in the absence of photosynthesis and as the algae and plants die and are consumed by aerobic bacteria.) The result may be the death of many fish and aquatic organisms.
