I wish I would have done a before and after video… Installed the thruster myself which was really easy – Turned on the 1 hp. unit and within 10-15 minutes the shoreline was clear… I was shocked how well, how quick and how far it reaches. It really works! Also, super simple to program the 360 turning unit – took 2 minutes to read and follow the instructions. Lastly – I have about 175 ft. of shoreline and my wife’s comment was wow you can really see the bottom, I’ve never seen that… We’ve lived there for 20 years.

Mounting OptionsWe have designed a variety of Dock Mounted & Freestanding mounting options to fit every application.
The 360 Oscillator attachment by Weeders Digest is fully programmable to turn 0 or 360 degrees. Oscillates at a rate that is the most effective for moving muck and surface water long distances. (Adjusts 20 degrees every 20 minutes)
The motor runs on low voltage power so the operational costs are minimal. Adding it to your current set up takes just a couple of minutes. It also comes with a full 2 year warranty.
The Dock Plate Mount bolts to the top and side of a dock or pier and allows you to raise and lower the motor(adjustable up to 5’ water depth) up and down & side to side as needed. You can also control the angle of the circulation. The motor head should be tilted slightly upwards when operating your unit to control muck, lake weeds, algae & floating debris. This will prevent the powerful motor from creating a divot under your dock or pier washing away the actual bottom of the lake.
The Dock Mount is one option that is included with your purchase of any model. It is a solid choice if you have no need to relocate your unit around your dock often. If your looking for something more portable you might want to check out our OTHER MOUNTS.
The Truss Dock Mount attaches to the side of your dock like a sandwich style vice. It tightens on in under 2 minutes without damaging your dock. This mount is designed to fit on the side “truss” of your dock frame. Its also quick and easy to move around your dock or pier. No need to drill holes in your dock. Extremely portable and easy to install.
If portability and ease of use is what you are looking for, the portable dock post mount might be what you need. It uses the stability of your existing dock posts as a foundation of security. You’ll mount the AquaThruster to this and you are set. It’s super easy and super convenient to use. It allows maximum coverage area of your peach with a quick attachment option.
To relocate you’ll just loosen a few bolts and slide it off. Allowing you to rotate locations around your dock if desired.
Fits Round & Square Dock Posts up to 4 inches In Diameter!
The FreeStanding Frame is a good choice for those who don’t have a dock or pier or if you want the ability to move your thruster around your lakeshore to cover more area. The height is adjustable and it the angle can easily be changed by turning the frame in the direction you want to maintain from Sludge, Muck, Auquatic Weeds & Algae.
It also works great as a deicer. You’re are able to keep a very large area open in the winter without having to be connected to a dock.
The float option for the Aqua Thruster works by allowing you to tie the system to something on the bank, anchor it using cement blocks, or tie it between docks. You will want to make sure that your tie off is secure enough to hold the force of the motor as they are very powerful.
Some applications would be such as if you don’t have a dock or pier and want to circulate water or blow algae and floating debris way from an area. When in the water, Aqua Thruster motor sits two feet below the float and is not adjustable to go deeper.
We have many other mounting options available . You can get one or purchase multiple mounts if needed.
