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!
BEST RAKE I EVER USED. Cleared out lake frontage in half the time of regular rake.
Easy to assemble. Doesn't grab so much you can't pull it in. Worked great for me!
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.
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.
The weed ripper works very well . I purchased the weeder with the extension poles. Turns out the rope was all I really needed. The extensions are somewhat difficult for me to use.
This works great. I can get a lot done in a small amount of time. It’s a great tool and highly recommend it.
This is the best tool I have run across for removing milfoil from my river (The Pend Oreille). I have used other contraptions in the past, but this marvelous and simple rake does the job better than any other. The tines are spaced apart properly, the height of the tines higher than the competitors, and the thickness of the metal is the best out there. I had my reservations when viewing the pictures, but when opening the package and finally getting it into the water, I was convinced that this was the best. Do not be fooled by wider, 4' models as you have to be able to pull all the weed mass out of the water and anything wider than the WEED RIPPER will leave you straining, worn out, and constantly realigning the tines (as the competitors tines are not as thick as the WEED RIPPER). This tool merits a 5 STAR rating in my opinion.
Works real good with just the stub handle and rope
I gave this product as a gift to my dad that lives 3 hours from me. I can’t give a review for myself but I can say my dad loves it.
Product works great. Purchased the longest handled version and am able to mix and match sections (including capacity to throw out a 4’ section on a rope) to progressively cut through deep thick pond weeds. The flat angle of slicer works great when navigating pond’s floor...doesn’t get caught on rocks. Retrieves large swathes of pond grasses. Am still working through the best strategy for dumping pond grass off tool vs pulling off with hand, but have some ideas. Neighbors who have other tools have come over to see this in action and we’re really impressed with how well it works on our shared pond. Thank you for thinking outside box when designing!
