Your Mounting Option Choices
NOTE: An Overview Video of these mounting options is located near the bottom of the page!
Standard Dock Mount:
This option allows you to easily install a dock plate to any part of your dock using a few bolts. This is a “semi-permanent” option for those who have no need to move their unit around their dock or shoreline. The Aqua Thruster unit can easily be removed from the mount for easy storing.
Portable Dock Post Mount:
If your dock has posts, this mount makes it extremely easy to mount on any post along your dock to allow maximum coverage of your beach. It is quick and easy to attach and remove so portability won’t be an issue. Easy to move from post to post as needed!
To mount, simply slide the Portable Dock Post Mount over the desired dock post, tighten a couple bolts and you are ready go! To move or relocate, just loosen the bolts, slide it off and repeat!
Fits square and round dock posts up to 4" wide.
Free Standing Frame Mount:
This is a great option if you don't have a dock or want to locate your AquaThruster in areas away from your dock. This option allows you to manage more area as it can be moved and relocated along the shoreline as needed.
Truss Dock Mount:
This "sandwich style" mount attaches to the side of any truss style dock. It can be moved anywhere around your dock very easily so you can cover more area effectively. Mounts on any part of your dock in less than 2 minutes!
The 360 degree Oscillator mount:
Completely Automate your short journey to a solid bottom beach. Program to cover only the areas you want! It will do the rotating for you! The Oscillator comes standard with the Dock Plate Mount but is also compatible with every other mounting option with the exception of the Float Mount.
The float option is ideal if you don’t have a dock/pier and want to blast algae and floating debris as the Aqua Thruster sits two feet below the float. The float option for the Aqua Thruster works by allowing you to tie the system to something on the bank.
BOTTOM FRAME for 360 degree Oscillator
The Portable Bottom Frame mount enables you to use your 360 degree oscillator without mounting to a dock!
Disclaimer: Some states including Minnesota have regulations regarding methods that moves or removes the lake bottom. Feel free to call us for more information regarding regulations or contact your local representative for information on possible regulations in your area.

If I didn't see it with my own eyes I wouldn't have believed it. We purchased our lake cottage four years ago & assumed we would have to live with the weeds & muck. I measured the muck at 2' to 4' in-depth around the pier. After two rotations we could see the bottom of the lake. As we made our way down the pier we have approx 100' of clear water & we couldn't happier than now the grandkids & kids can dive off of the pier. I also bought the stand as I have 500" of frontage & looking forward to results in the beach area & the rest of the shoreline.
It’s nothing short of a miracle. I purchased the 3/4 hp with oscillator a SDSU stand. Took a while to get the right settings in terms of the angle that I set it at. As some other reviewers have indicated If it is set pointing too deep it will move the bottom and create a whole. If set too shallow it doesn’t do as good of a job. It takes a little experimenting, but it is absolutely amazing. Don’t hesitate to buy this. Worth every penny +++++
As soon as we fired up our new Aqua Thruster the algae and duckweed deposits on our lakeshore disappeared. Sediment seems to be dissipating as well expanding our useable shoreline. Great product!
Very powerful! stay off the bottom. This will clear everything in minutes.
SEEMS TO WORK VERY WELL.
I would highly recommend this product!!!
Works pretty good still experimenting with it to see what works best
I couldn’t be happier with the product and service, it had our beach clear of algae in 3 hours and 99% of the muck removed with 3 days of use. Carl was a great sales person, he had great advice and didn’t try to up-sale.
Just want to thank Weeders Digest and Mike for a great product!! Ordered my AT on Wednesday it came on Thursday!! Set up Thursday night and by Friday late morning my harbor went from weedy and slimy to barely any weeds left and great sand!! It’s slowly pushing its way out past the dock as we speak!! I was very hesitant to spend that kind of money but now I’m planning on ordering a second one to run one on each dock!! This saved me hours upon hours every week of raking and cutting weeds and scooping muck out!! Now when the kids are here they can swim on a nice mud free beach!! Thank you thank you thank you!!!!! Only thing I could find to change would be the directions were a little tough to navigate for the auto timer but a second read and away we go!!!! 10 stars if that was an option!!!! Now we will just see how well it holds up!!!!
Like a lot of the other reviewers, I have a lake shore that is mucky/weedy and I have spent untold hours manually trying to clean it up and maintain it. However, it was a fruitless effort because the silt would keep creeping back in along with the weeds. I finally decided to take a leap of faith and spend $2400 on a 3/4 Hp Aqua Thruster and I can tell you this: IT WAS THE BEST MONEY I HAVE EVER SPENT!!!! This is one of the few things I have ever bought that more than lived up to its advertised performance! It is very easy to setup and best of all, it works EXTREMELY fast. In fact, I had to back off on how often I ran it because it cleared my shoreline in a matter of hours. Please, if you are standing on the fence about whether to buy this, do not hesitate and just get one. You will NOT be disappointed.
I wish I had taken a before picture. The after picture is nothing short of amazing. After one week of use, our shoreline has gone from weeds and muck to Crystal clear. I wish I had bought this product years ago. Well worth the money!
This product is amazing. It does exactly what is professes to do. The 1 HP was recommended for our application. The results of the thruster are quick and totally amazing. It is worth every penny.
