FAQs

WeedShear Q & A

Q: Can I use the WeedShear in salt water?
A: Yes! Simply rinse it with fresh water after each use.

Q: Can I use the WeedShear to cut cattails?
A: Yes, by hand. It’s not suggested, however, to throw it into the cattails with the rope.

Q: Can I add a longer rope?
A: Yes! Make sure the rope is the same quality as the rope provided. It is suggested to not exceed 50 ft.

Q: What makes your Weedshear different then all the others on the market?
A: The Weedshear is our flagship product and has a proven track record of 13 years in the industry and backed by a money-back guarantee.

Q: Do you sell replacement blades?
A: Yes, $99.00 for a set of two replacement blades.

Q: What is included in my WeedShear Purchase?
A: The WeedShear comes with an 11’ handle, Blade Sharpener, a 25’ Rope, and Protective Gloves.

Q: I think my WeedShear is damaged, is there supposed to be an indent above the “V” shaped cutting section?
A: Your WeedShear is not damaged! The dimple above the WeedShear blades is part of the product design, and better allows the blades to cut near the root system of aquatic weeds.

Q: How much will it cost to ship my Weedshear? How long will it take to ship to my area?
A: Your WeedShear ships for free in the continental US! The Weed Shear is ready to ship, and will make it to your location within 4 business days for continental US customers.

Q: Do you ship the WeedShear internationally?
A: Yes! We have sent the WeedShear to countries worldwide. If you provide us with a Postal Code of your desired shipping address, we can give you a shipping cost estimate and delivery timeline for your area.

Q: Is there a limit to the size of weeds that the Weed Shear can cut?
A: Yes. You need to be able to pull the WeedShear by hand using the rope or handle. DO NOT use an ATV, UTV, etc as the cutter will not stand up to that amount of force.

Q: How can I clean up the area after cutting the weeds with my WeedShear?
A: Consider purchasing with one of our rakes which offer a float attachment that will allow you to skim the surface of the water to retrieve and remove any weeds floating on the surface.

Q: Is the WeedShear my only option to cut and remove weeds?
A: No, go to weedersdigest.com we offer an extensive selection of tools and equipment that will help you reduce weeds, manage your water quality and improve your experience with all water activities!

Q: How often do you have to sharpen the blades?
A: Before each use.


Q:What does the Weed Shear weigh?
A: The Weed Shear weighs around 8-9 lbs.

Q: Can I purchase replacement blade covers?
A: No - we do not sell replacement blade covers, but we have found a great solution to this issue. A standard foam pool noodle will do the job. The noodle slit lengthwise and then cut to the length of the blade makes a great replacement blade cover.

Q: Is the WeedShear safe to use?
A: The WeedShear is safe when common sense guidelines are applied. The tool you are using contains two razor sharp blades. The WeedShear should only be used by an adult. Avoid all contact with electric wires! Be sure the area is clear of all people before use. Wear safety gloves when using the Weed Shear. Take caution when tossing the WeedShear, avoiding contact with any part of your body. Do not mix alcohol/drugs with the WeedShear.

Q: How Big of a area does the WeedShear cut?
A: The V-shaped cutter clears a 49” or over 4 foot path of aquatic weeds with each throw!

Q: What is the depth and distance this product can be used at?
A: Comes with a 25’ cord. So if you are able to chuck it 25’ you would be able to cut that distance. Just need to allow it to sink to the bottom.

Q: Is there any assembly?
A: Yes, Very easy though. Snap on handles and poles for length. Easy eye-bolt attachment to tie rope on. Also all components fit and store in stylish black bag as a “optional”

Q: What is the Weed Shear?
A: The WeedShear is an aquatic weed-cutting tool, uniquely designed to be the most efficient and effective lake and pond weed control tool to cut submerged and emergent weeds such as lily pads, cattails, milfoil and hydrilla.

Q: How does the WeedShear work?
A: Using the WeedShear is a simple three-step process:
1. Give it a toss
2. Let it sink
3. Pull it in with a jerking motion

Q: How large of an area can I cut with the WeedShear?
A: The WeedShear clears a path up to 49 inches wide and 30 feet in length with a single toss.

Q: What kind of aquatic weeds can the WeedShear cut?
A: If the weeds have stems and are rooted to the bottom, it is very likely that the WeedShear will cut them. It will cut most non-woody aquatic weeds and plants, including the following:
1. Submerged– Hydrilla, curly-leafed pondweed, water milfoil, etc.
2. Emergent plants – Water lily, cattails, bulrush, lily pads, etc.

Q: Does the WeedShear come with a sharpener?
A: Yes

Q: Why can’t I pull the weed-cutting tools behind my boat?
A: The weed tools are designed to be used manually using a quick jerking motion when pulling back on the tool. Therefore, the tools are not effective when pulled behind a boat. Learn more about how to cut water weeds.

Q: How heavy is the WeedShear? Will I be able to handle the tool on my own?
A: Our Weed Shear ranges from 6 to 9 pounds depending upon which handle you use and its easy to handle when throwing out and pulling back to cut the vegetation. They’re designed to be used by a single individual.

Q: Do I have to remove aquatic weeds after cutting them? Why?
A: Yes. Some states require you to remove cut vegetation from the body of water, so please check with your local
DNR. It is also wise to remove as much vegetation as possible using our RakeZilla after cutting for these reasons:
1. It prevents weeds from spreading through plant fragmentation and seed distribution.
2. Decaying vegetation is a food source for next year’s weed growth.
3. You dont want to be THAT neighbor who lets them float away for someone else to clean up.

Q: What is the WeedShear made of?
A: Blades are made from high-quality stainless steel. The handle is made from galvanized steel.

Q: Are replacement parts available for WeedShear?
A: Yes

Q: Is there a warranty/guarantee on the tools?
A: All our WeedShear products are backed by a one-year limited warranty.

Q: If I want to become a dealer, what would I need to do?
A: To become a dealer, please call us at 877-224-4899.

Q: What state laws and regulations apply to my efforts to control aquatic weeds?
A: Each state has their own laws, so we recommend contacting your state’s Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) or the Department of Natural Resources (DNR).

    Best Rake so far

    Posted by Michael Tr on 24th May 2021

    I have owned and used another brand for years however this rake takes the cake The 15 foot handle is great but the two most important aspects are the quality rigid prongs that really grab and the downturned handle at the end that makes it easy to grab and pull in. It also has a flotation tube for grabbing the weeds on the surface. Lovin it.
