Frequently Asked Questions
No dock is needed! We have a Tripod Mounting Kit that allows for mounting the Crary WeedRoller PRO on shore without a dock or other structure.
The WeedRoller PRO can coperate in a 300 degree arc and is supplied with three 7' rollers with a total length of 21' from the drive head. Additional rollers can be added to extend the reach to 42'. Local regulations may dictate maximum cleared area. Please contact your local Departmetn of Natural Resources to determine your maximum roller length.
The WeedRoller PRO can easily roll over the smaller rocks and objects. The automatic reverse feature senses muck conditions and heavy weeds and reverses the rotation to eliminate getting stuck. After six reversals the unit will shut down.
The rollers must fill with water. It is best to plug the holes after they have filled. Plastic plugs are provided to prevent the rollers from accumulating sand and mud inside. Start out with the last tube one half full of air for the first few revolutions to make sure it doesn't burrow down.
We offer additional WeedRoller PRO Tubes
