Tired of unsightly weeds mucking up the water around the beach area of your lake home? No doubt you have tried using chemicals and back breaking water rakes, even hiring a costly harvesting service, only to have the weeds return next season. Now imagine eliminating those troublesome weeds once and for all with the revolutionary Crary WeedRoller! The WeedRollers breakthrough pivot design slowly rolls along the bottom, detaching weeds from the soil and agitating the lake bed. The weeds can then be quickly gathered and disposed.

Ready for install kit includes:

  • Drivehead
  • 21-ft. roller with 1 coupler
  • Power converter with 6-ft.
    main power cord
  • Universal dock hardware, for support legs of 2″ diameter or less
  • 70-ft. power cord (from converter to power head)
  • Smart Switch

Rollers are equipped with a flexible coupler at the head and between the seven and fourteen foot lengths. An optional coupler can be installed within the fourteen foot assembly to provide additional flexibility. The couplers allow contouring to variations in the lake bottom. Standard hardware package mounts to docks with support legs of 2″ diameter or less (square or round).

One Dock Mounting Kit (right) is standard with the Weedroller. Use additional dock mounting hardware to easily move the WeedRoller from one location to another.

Optional is the Tripod Mounting Kit for mounting the WeedRoller on shore without a dock or other structure.

Mud Paddle

For extreme mud and muck conditions. It acts as a large paddle on the end roller to lift, providing traction in the mud. Remove buoy after the WeedRoller has worked down to firmer lake bottom.

Deep Water Extension Kit

Two foot extension kit to increase the maximum water depth of standard unit from 4-1/2 feet to 6-1/2 feet. Up to two extensions can be added per Weedroller.

Side Post Mounting

This mount kit is for docks with no posts on the ends for mounting the standard dock mounts. Kit mounts flat on the side plates of the dock.

Flex Coupler

Flex coupler assembly for replacement, or to add between the two 7 foot lengths of the 14 foot roller assembly. Provides flexibility between rollers to contour to lake bottom.
