Waterbug comes with a variety of modular attachments that allow the machine to function well in all environments.
The scraper attachment removes stringy weeds and algae strands from the conveyor. The deposits drop down and are collected in the storage bunk.
The skimmer makes removing floating algae as simple as driving forward. The floating booms act as a funnel, feeding surface detritus onto the harvesting bed.
The net extensions channel weeds and other debris onto the conveyor allowing for faster more efficient harvesting.
This optional add on is specially designed to cut lake weeds to a depth of 1.2 feet. The aluminum sickle is easy to remove and can quickly be added back on when trimming anchored weeds.
The patent pending conveyor brush is used to remove vegetation from the front conveyor and prevent full circulation of vegetation or other material. This allows the sticky, clingy, or water-soaked material to be deposited onto the holding platform instead of returning to the water.
Launch and Removal
Waterbug is designed to be operated by a single person.
The Waterbug trailer can easily be hooked up to a hitched vehicle and backed into the water. A handle bar modification is also included so the machine can be wheeled into the water in environments where vehicle use is not an option.
Once removed from the water, Waterbug can collapse, making for easy transportation and storage.
