I bought it this spring - I was actually envisioning building something similar myself, but finally managed to do just the right Google search which led me to this. I purchased a home on a small fishing lake about 6 years ago, and while the lake is spring-fed and the water clean and clear, the area just in front of the home suffered from neglect and weeds had taken root, effectively choking out the otherwise ideal swimming area. Long story short, I've tried herbicides and other methods over the years, none of which worked very effectively. I bought this with a couple of extensions so that I could reach everywhere I needed.I now have a weed-free swimming area, and I believe that if I work this weekly over the summer, I can make a big dent in the accumulated muck (organic material) and restore the swimming area to the sandy bottom underneath.I recommend that you give this a try before spending more money on other solutions - you'll want to have this tool because it will help in most any situation, and probably will resolve most, if not all, of your unwanted lake vegetation problems in shallower areas.
This seems to be working really well in our swimming area. It’s exactly what I needed for touch-ups!
Easer to use then any other tool we have for weeds! It does help getting rid of muck, as well as weeds. Just roll, no need to pick up or clean. We did have a prob... a nut came off one side. We went back to the Crosslake location, and prob was immediately solved.
This tool is simply amazing. I've tried rakes, chemicals and cussing and this tops all of those. In just about an hour, I had completely cleared a 20' square of weeds and could feel the bottom getting firmer as I rolled.I can't wait to do more tonight!
The Beachroller is amazing! I bought this after a recommendation from a neighbor. Our lake shore was mucky and weedy, and after one weekend (using the Beachroller twice) the weeds are gone and the bottom is a nice hard sand! I can go in without water shoes and without sinking down a few inches. Definitely one of the best purchases for our new lake cabin
I just received this yesterday and started using it today. This is incredible!!! What a difference in the area I rolled after using ONCE!! I don't usually write reviews, but this tool deserves five stars plus!! Guests will be able to swim from our shore again!!
Umm yeah, get your own!,!!!!! It will quickly become the most borrowed thing you own. Should sum it up!!
I just purchased the beach roller this week after months of reviewing lake weed tools. We purchased a lake shore that not been used previously so we had some work to do. We have fully grown August weeds and about 4-8" of muck. I have been using a yard rake on and off throughout the summer to keep the weeds that are close to the dock tamed but I could only reach 4' out from the dock. The first time using the beach roller I rolled for about 1 hour and it eliminated all the weeds in our swim area. I couldn't believe how fast it pulled these weeds up especially for how thick they were. The didn't just cut weeds, it actually ripped the weeds up by the root. I have before/after pictures and a picture of the uprooted weeds. Rolling was a breeze for the most part until you hit really thick grown weeds (as you would expect). Our weeds are 6' high and I was able to still roll without any problems. My 5 and 7 year olds roll the beach every time we go to the lake with ease. As for the muck we now have hard sandy bottom where it's shallow and now we are working on our drop off area which is already down to about 2-3" of muck after 1 day of use. We used to have a leech problem and now no one has had a single leech on them! Best win ever. Assembly was simple and quick and I love the new model and it's portability. The handle breaks down for storage and for transporting (because everyone wants to use it now). Our weeds were so thick that we did have hand remove weeds from the unit but we removed an insane amount of weeds. Removing them from the roller was quick and easy (wear gloves). Overall this product is amazing! Especially if you get started in the spring. My beach just got a whole lot bigger now that it's easy to maintain. Seriously look no further than the beach roller, you'll just be wasting money.
Found this site an item by chance, thought I'd try it. So glad I did!!! It does just as reported and some. I have what is normally a lake bottom that is about 2" to 3" of dark muck. I've been using almost the entire season about only once every week or less often, we now have a really nice SANDY bottom!! Kids and wife love it. If any weeds try to grow back, its great to see them rise to the surface after rolling and watch float away!!!! Neighbors on both sides have nothing but weeds and muck. There's a straight line defining where it's being done and not.My advice, get one, you will be happy and the kids will too!! Also, each time you use it, it gets easier.
