Lake Weed Removal: A Chore, or Aqua Therapy?

Dear Jenson Technologies,

Your Jenson Lake Mower™ is a fun and amazing little toy; I got this used one about 3-4 years ago, as I was looking for something more affordable than the Weedoo boat to cut my lilies and milfoil.

When I first started clearing the plants in front of my house, I used a hand sickle for the longest time. Got a bunch of other different types of weed removal tools also and it was a long and slow process. After doing some research on lake weed removal, I ran across the Lake Mower™ and was totally impressed.

I started out with the Lake Mower™ mounted onto a jon boat, using a trolling motor and cutting from the stern. The motor kept on getting weeded up with milfoil, so I got a cage for it, and later an Island Hopper trolling motor, which is like a string trimmer with a blade. Nowadays I have it on this pontoon in the photo.

The trolling motors are tucked in the pontoons (one on each side) and are controlled with the foot pedals at the bow of the boat. In 2015, I plan on using a 10-ft. V-bottom boat that my neighbor had, with a 5 hp Mercury motor. I’m a tinkerer; I like to experiment with different things.

The clear area in the other photos, taken with my unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), commonly known as a drone, is where I’ve been whittling away. It took about two days to finish, but we have a lot of stumps from trees that were left in the lake, that I have to be careful to avoid.

I’m on the east side of a 40-acre lake, so the west wind helps my lake weed removal on by blowing the weed cuttings my way. I use a bottom lake rake that I had put insulation foam around to make it float, to get the milfoil- and water lily cuttings from the water and use them for compost.

The main reason I got the Jenson Lake Mower™ is, and I quote, “Work smarter, not harder”, and the Lake Mower™ takes all the hard work out of it. I don’t look at it as if I’m working while I’m on the water, I call it Aqua Therapy, and you’re the reason I can go to therapy anytime! LOL!!

This machine is definitely worth it; it does the trick. I would highly recommend it to anyone who has to get rid of lake weeds, especially if they need to clear large areas. Before, I could only clear a path out from my dock, and now I’ve been able to open up the whole place. It is beautiful.

Above is a picture of what I have to look at when having my morning coffee. It looks so serene, with ducks, geese, and swans swimming, and my dog loves it, as she likes to go out and swim too! She goes all the way to the drop-off (which you can see on the far right in one of the aerial pics), which is about 150 yards away, and then some.

I’m so impressed with the Jenson Lake Mower™ that I was ready to buy another one if I couldn’t find replacement parts. So I was glad when you could send me what I needed to get me back on the water quickly. It is by far the best thing I found for lake weed removal.

I appreciate that you really stand behind your product. So many companies want the buck but not the customer-satisfaction hassles. How many stars can I give Jenson Technologies? Out of 10… can I have 11?! You’ve been so friendly and helpful; never makes me feel like you don’t have time for me. So I just want to say thank you and hope my story is helpful to someone else.
