Best Selling Lake Weed Cutter! 

The WeedShear is our best selling lake weed cutter because of its durability to cut through the thickest of aquatic lake weeds. The unique V shape design of the Weed Shear allows it to sink to the bottom of the lake and cut unwanted aquatic weeds at the roots.

The WeedShear comes with a 100% Money Back Guarantee!

The WeedShear is extremely durable and easily cuts through pond weeds like Milfoil, Hydrilla, Lily Pads and even Cattails. The Weed Shear is effective at any water depth.

PRO TIP: If you don't already have a lake rake to use to collect all of the cut weeds, we highly recommend purchasing Rake Zilla because it will allow you to rake, skim and scoop up your piles of weeds!





  • 49” wide V-shaped razer blade and cutting width
  • Snap-button handle connection
  • Stainless steel blades
  • Convert handle length for both shallow and deep water use
  • 25’ polypropylene cord for maximum coverage
  • Includes hand held sharpener & protective gloves.
  • Folds up for easy storage

Easy assembly and fun to use!

Insert spacer bolts and snap the handle together and you are ready to start cutting in just a few minutes!  Tie the cord around your wrist, toss the Weed shear into the target area, let it sink to the bottom, and pull the cord back towards you in a “jerking” motion. It’s as simple as that!  The “jerking” action is what generates the speed required to cut the aquatic plants and their base. 


Why the WeedShear is the best choice to cutting seaweed by hand

  • The stainless steel razor blades will never rust and rarely require sharpening. 
  • The Weedshear easily cuts all kinds of underwater weeds such as Milfoil, Hydrilla & Lily Pads. Just to name a few.
  • The V-shaped cutter clears a 49” or over 4 foot path of aquatic weeds with each throw! 
  • You can quickly and efficiently cut all the weeds in your swimming area, around your dock, or on your shoreline because you can throw it from your dock, shoreline, or from a boat!
  • Effective at Any Water Depth. The Weedshear connects the V-shaped blade to the handle using “snap-button” connection!  This enables you to use a shorter handle for shallow water depths or you can add the extensions for use in deeper water!
  • Other cutting tools such as the Serrated Lake Weed CutterT-Weeder or the Weed Razer work okay but many say that nothing compares to the Weedshear.

 Disclaimer: Weed Shear is razor sharp so please use caution when operating.

Frequently Used With: RakeZilla, Power Grip Rake



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 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).

    Worked well though will take some upper body strength

    Posted by Unknown on 7th Jun 2017

    Overall very satisfied with the cutter both when thrown into the lake and when just manually pulled in shallower water after the majority of the weeds were cut. Would have given this 5 stars but after a few days hard use, one of the blades came loose at the top rivet. Apparently an aluminum rivet and it basically sheared off. I repaired with simple galvanized wire rather than trying to drill out for a larger nut/bolt combo. I cleared a 75 yard frontage about 15 feet deep in a matter of a few days and a few blisters

    Very Pleased!

    Posted by Larry M on 1st May 2017

    In Florida, ell grass has become immune to herbicides. I dreaded having to go into the lake and dive to the roots of the ell grass. I heard about the weed shear and ordered one. I love it. It works. You need to watch the video and pull the shear the way they say and you too will be amazed at the volume of weeds it will cut.

    It really does work

    Posted by Jessica on 8th Sep 2016

    I was super excited to try out my weed sheer this past weekend and it was awesome. Of course the first time I did it I forgot to hold on to the rope but my hubby was a pro. We thought it was heavy at first but he could throw it really far and it cut through the weeds and lily pads. Wish the razor covers were a little longer. There is about an inch that doesn't get covered. Other than that, I will definitely recommend it to anyone who needs it.

    Works very well!

    Posted by Dave on 14th Aug 2016

    Purchased the weed shear and over all it works very well. Only when you have very dense weeds does it get a bit hard to pull it through. Very satisfied and it has made a huge improvement in our waterfront.

    Weed cutter works great!

    Posted by Unknown on 14th Jul 2016

    Searched on line for anything to help me clear my man-made pond which has become choked with razor grass and cattails. It works great; my tip for users is to make sure all pets are kept inside while this is being used; due to its sharpness could do damage in an instant! Just ordered the rake for cleanup of the floating debris and looking forward to a cleaner pond!

    Easy to assemble. Sharp tool.

    Posted by Unknown on 5th Jul 2016

    I am cutting a LOT of Chara. This tool cut it and dragged it in also. I made sure to put a very good knot on the rope so I would not lose it in the much. I am 57 yrs old and could throw it out 20 feet or so. Takes a bit of strength to pull it back...but not that difficult. Thumbs up.

    Works like a champ!

    Posted by Hal Stokes on 8th May 2016

    If you watch the video, you can pretty much master this tool. It is a manual saw (so tho speak) so it requires a little muscle, but I'm 63 and was able to clear my beach area of lily pads, saw grass and lake weeds in a about a day. The raking in and getting rid of the vegetation is the hardest part! Much, much less expensive than the $3,800 price I got from the lake cleaners!

    Best on the market!!!!

    Posted by Damon Fiord on 3rd May 2016

    Every year we deal with curly pond weed in our modest 1/4 fishing pond. This year with the mild winter the weed completely took the pond over. Every bit of open water was covered. We tried other methods that were either very slow or EXTREMELY labor intensive. We decided to order the Weed Shear and it was the best decision we ever made. In just under an hour I, by myself, had cleared an area 11' X 25'! I assure this isn't a joke. It is does require effort when retrieving the Shear but the effectiveness far out weighs that effort and to see everything in its path float to the surface is very satisfying! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND the Weed Shear to anyone looking to treat their shoreline or a small pond.

    I just used it once and it worked great for me. It cleaned out the weeds in front of my dock in no time. I would recommend this product to my friends.
