It floats in as little as 4” of water and can cut and skim 34” wide, is adjustable to 15-16” water depth by remote control (can be set to a 24" depth manually), and features long-lasting batteries that can operate 5 hours on a single charge. The Waterbug has a remote sight range of 500 feet making it an ideal solution for individual pond owners and golf courses in need of an effective pond weed and algae solution!
