Do I have to mount my WeedRoller PRO to a dock?
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.
How large of an area can the WeedRoller PRO clear?
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.
How does the WeedRoller PRO handle rocks or other obstacles in the water?
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.
What are the holes at the end of the tubes used for?
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
How deep can the WeedRoller PRO effectively operate in?
The WeedRoller PRO operates in up to nine and a half feet of water at the power head. Water depth can be increased in 2 and a half foot increments. A maximum of two kits may be installed.
What is the Power Converter, and what does it do?
The Power Converter converts 110 volts AC current to low voltage 28 volt AC. For safety it should be plugged into a ground fault interrupting circuit, and should remain on land and not over the water. The power converter comes standard with the WeedRoller PRO.
How is the WeedRoller PRO powered?
The WeedRoller PRO utilizes 110 volt household current and converts it to a safe 28 volt AC over the dock and water. It takes the equivelant electricity of a lightbulb to run the WeedRoller. Which makes this very low cost to operate!
What comes included with the standard WeedRoller PRO?
• Power converter with 6 foot main power cord
• Universal dock hardware
• 21 feet of lake bottom rollers
• 280 volt power head and power converter which converts 110-volt standard power to 28-volt

What material is the WeedRoller PRO made of?
First of all-ALL parts are made in the USA.

How much slope can the WeedRoller PRO operate effectively in?
The WeedRoller PRO is designed with adjustable joints to accommodate the average controur of the lake bottom.
How fast does the WeedRoller PRO move?
The WeedRoller PRO moves at a slow steady pace, approximately 5 miles per hour.
What happens to the weeds?
During the initial phase of WeedRoller operation (usually three days or less), existing weeds and vegetation will become dislodged and float to the surface. Many weeds can float away and re-root somewhere else. During this initial operating period, it is important to gather these floating weed segments and safely dispose of them so you don’t contribute to someone else’s weed problem.
Many natural resources departments require clean up of weeds, no matter what type of weed removal method is used. With regular WeedRoller use, weeds are prevented from regenerating in the operating area. Therefore, after the initial phase, the WeedRoller is a weed preventative. Gathering and potential spreading of weeds is generally not an issue after this initial phase.
How do I know what the regulations in my state may be?
Each state’s regulations can vary. If you have any quesitons, please contact your local Department of Natural Resources.
