Neptune Rake Vs Weed Cutting Boats

Highlight your product's finest features.

Neptune Rake System
  • Cost

    The Neptune Rake system is a fraction of the cost of a weed cutting boat.

  • GROUND IMPACT

    Neptune rake is carried to site by hand
    no need for heavy haulage, slipways or damage to lawns and lake surrounds.

  • ENVIRONMENTAL

    Neptune rake glides across the lake floor, cropping weed at its base, often including the roots plus any rotting detritus, all of this is effectively gathered at the same time and brought to shore. It has a low carbon footprint.
    Weed cutters may get damaged if they hit the pond base and cut weeds only part way down, only encouraging more vigorous future growth, weed cutters may get damaged if they hit the lake floor. The cut weed then needs gathered, anything missed will sink and rot causing water quality issues or float downstream causing further environmental problems.

  • USEABILITY

    No specific training is required to use Neptune Rake, there are no moving parts to cause maintenance headaches, the excellent Portable Winch has many other uses.
    Weed cutting boats require trained personnel to go out on open water, regular maintenance on moving parts. Separate attachments are required to gather weed.
