The Weed-Ripper is a unique tool is designed to pull aquatic weeds by the roots so they cannot grow back as quickly. Works best for underwater weeds including lily pads (water lilies) pencil reeds and most other lake and pond vegetation with stems under 1 inch in diameter.  If the weeds are too deeply rooted the Weed Ripper will still remove them by cutting or ripping their stems below the water surface.  We do not recommend using the WeedRipper to cut Cattails.  If you are looking for tools for cutting cattails visit our cattail cutters category for a full selection.

The Weed Ripper works best on weeds that have stems 1" wide or less including Lily Pads, Pencil, Bull rushes, Elodea, Water celery, VallisneriaEel grass and similar kinds of submersed and emersed aquatic vegetation.
Throw it out from a dock or shoreline and retrieved using the 25' rope and a shorter handle. Or you can connect all of the handles to pull seaweed around your dock or shoreline. The unique tapered design of the pulling teeth make it easy to remove pulled weeds from the WeedRipper head.
Handle Options:
  • 4 ft (stub handle) Works best for primarily throwing and retrieving.
  • 7 ft Handle - Includes Stub Handle + Pistol Grip Handle
  • 11 ft Handle - Includes above + 4 ft extension
  • 15 ft Handle - Includes above + two x 4 ft extensions

(all options include 25 ft Rope)

  • The Weed Ripper features a 3 foot wide heavy duty aluminum head.
  • handle choices:  4 ft - 7 ft - 11 ft - 15 ft
  • The unique curved handle grip makes it easier to pull dense loads with less effort.
  • Comes with a 25 ft rope allowing you to cut and pull weeds by tossing out and retrieving.

    This works great in removing weeds and holding on to them so they can be taken out of the water and not spread around in the water. I use this and the RakeZilla and it makes a great system for cleaning our swimming area.

    This rake is the ultimate. We used it at our river front home and it ripped the weeds perfectly.

    I was skeptical about ordering, but I was also sick of lake weeds. After reading the reviews on the weed ripper, I decided to order it. It not only was delivered in just a couple days, it exceeded my expectations!! It’s easy to use and so productive!!! I consider it my new toy!

    Even better than expected

    From the description and the reviews, I expected this to meet my needs pretty well. I was surprised that it's beefier than I expected, and it works great! I love that it works without any sharp edges (nothing to worry about sharpening later), and the 25' rope (included) is more than I need. I decided to order without any extra poles, because another reviewer said the rope was easier than the long pole, and I'd have to agree--pulling the rope is very easy and effective. Highly recommended!

    Easy to assemble. Doesn't grab so much you can't pull it in. Worked great for me!

    You won’t be disappointed!

    We just had our first work party with this tool and are very impressed. We have a 1 acre swimming pond that has been choked with long, fine weeds this year over about 2/3 of its area. We attached this cutter to an 80’ long rope and had one person paddle it out to the middle (where the depth is up to 12’ ) using a kayak, with another person on the shore to pull the rope. We are getting massive loads of weeds and roots with each pull—I would guess up to 100 lb at a time. It’s very satisfying! It will take many such pulls to clear the pond, but we’re happy to have found the right tool for the job.

    Put to the test.......passed

    Bought this to tackle Guntersville Lake Alabama floating eel grass. Lake is having historic levels of floating grass mounding up on our seawall. This tool is legit for handling this problem. Could not be more satisfied. Much easier to use than a short handled pitchfork, and the reach is extremely effective.
