The weed rake is perfect for mechanical control of weeds, algae, muck and debris. This 36" wide aluminum pond rake comes with an 11' two-piece rustproof powder-coated aluminum handle, detachable polyethylene float and a 50' length of polypropylene rope. Use this weed rake for ponds to skim floating aquatic vegetation and algae from the water. The weed rake can be thrown and retrieved using the attached rope. By shortening the handle and removing the float, you have a professional-grade landscaping rake, excellent for dressing beach sand and removing bottom debris.
