The Weed Razer® is a unique V-shaped lake weed cutter designed to be the most efficient and effective tool to cut or shear almost any type of rooted aquatic vegetation like milfoil, lily pads, pond weed and even cattails.
The Weed Razer® clears a path 48" wide (4') with each throw. Weighing just 8 lbs., it is light enough to toss 30' or more, yet heavy enough to sink to the bottom. The Weed Razer® is able to cut in deep or shallow water, cutting at the base of the weeds with little resistance because it slices the water weeds rather than dragging them.
Using the Weed Razer® is a simple 4-step process:
- 1. Give It a Toss
- 2. Let It Sink
- 3. Pull It In
- 4. Repeat
The Weed Razer® ships in a 3" x 5" x 35" cardboard box and includes the blade sharpener, weed deflector and 25' of rope. Average assembly time is about 15 minutes.
Weed Razer® Includes: Blade Sharpener, Weed Deflector, 25' of Rope
Distance Between Blades: 48"
Weight: 8 lbs.
The Weed Razer® has razor sharp blades. Always keep blade covers on when not in use. Please make sure you know the laws in your area before you remove your aquatic vegetation.

Lose a star for printing your assembly manual backwards.
Used it yesterday for the first time. Not bad. Quite a bit easier than any other methods at my disposal. Cuts as advertised but hauled up a lot of muck as well. Assembly was a bit confusing. I build runway machinery for a living, so I don't think I'm a total idiot. I'm still not sure if the weed deflector tab gets snapped on after bolting, or I bolt through the tab. Completely unclear. Also, could NOT assemble with blade guards in place. Had to slide them up past the frame. Dicey! Anyways, it works. I guess. Used it until the skeeters ate me alive and had to stop. Going to sharpen it my way and juice it up with a little WD40. That should get things flowing a little smoother. Also, your rake is too expensive. Made my own for free.
I am glad to know something like this available
My shoreline is a mess but this seems to work better than I could have imagined. I would certainly recommend this to any one who has a lot of weeds to clean up. It makes for a quick solution.
This product works great and was easy to put together. It works great and takes care of the problem lily pads with ease.
Worked better than I could imagine. Finally have weedless pond
Good for the job
I have a big pond. I've been using the Weed Razer for more than a week. I'm giving it 5 stars, but in my opinion it is only one of 4 steps for effective weed removal. First I put in blue dye, to cut back on the light rays entering the water. The weeds in my pond need light, along with all the nutrients from the pond bottom where leaves from overhanging trees accumulate and rot. (You'll see that I'll try to get as much vegetation out as possible.). Second, I used the Weed Razer as described. I tied the rope onto an old belt around my waist. The short jerking pulls recommended do cut weeds, but it is no easy task. It is tiring and needs to be done in sessions. I found the belt and my body weight helped the pulling. I found the Razer loads up with heavy weeds pretty fast and takes strength to pull. It does cut cattails, but again it takes a lot of effort. The tool sharpener that is included works well, and needs to be used often. My third step was to rake out the cut weeds from the bottom using a wide rake like the one available from you folks. And last, I made a rake to pull off the cut weeds that floated to the top the next day by using a 42" piece of 1"X 6", some # 16 common nails, and a piece of a kiddy flotation foam tube on the handle near the rake head. I throw this rake out into the pond, and it floats, so I am able to pull in all the floating vegetation that got cut off and floated up after a day or two. The pond is looking a lot better. I plan to keep at it. The fifth step is chemical warfare. Not for me. This over time will all work just fine.
Maybe my cattails are too thick, but I found the Razor a bit tough to pull.
Works very well.....satisfied....
I received the "Weed Razer" missing the small red weed deflector. QC got in touch with the manufacturer and I had it in the mail a couple of days later. I used the Weed Razer anyway and it worked well for myself and I loaned it to my nephew to do my sisters place and it worked very well. I would say that I am very happy with the item. I agree with the previous reviews it is well constructed, and the blades are very sharp. Handle with care.
Outstanding, works as advertised
Arrived in a timely manner. Easy to follow assembly instructions in English only, which I appriciated not having to turn the book over or read five other languaages at the same time. Toss it out and it does as advertised. Very important to keep blade sharp for ease of use.
High priced, but good product
Product is easy to assemble and arrived in just a few days with standard shipping. A friend of mine has one and I liked how it handled so I decided to buy one myself. They do work great and shear all weeds that I have including lilly pads. I regret not buying the weed rake also, but the cost was too much...........I just use the garden rake now to pick up the mess.
The razor cleans the beach area enough so the kids can swim and not complain about vegetation! Also, helpful to keep weeds away from motors and jetski's which my impellors and props seem to be magnets for.
so far, so good
2 days of use, and it has been working as advertised. I am using it in a small lake/pond about 1/4 mile across, but just at our waterfront area. this area has been completely overgrown with lilly pads due to neglect over the last several years. We are just getting the lilies in now (mid may). This device cut them down effectively and with minimal effort. It did get stuck once, but was easily retrieved in a canoe.
I am giving it four stars for now. Working great and seems well constructed. I think it is a little pricey at $150 (w/ shipping), but so far it is the only tool made for the job that I have found.
I'll try to re-post at the end of the summer to provide an update after several months of use.
