Product: Aquatic Weed Harvester
Company, Location: Aquarius Systems - North Prairie
Description: Wisconsin is the original birthplace of aquatic weed harvesters. The industry began in response to what most Americans consider a problem; too many plants interfering with the recreational use of our lakes and waterways. It is interesting to note that this machine was not originally built to meet recreational purposes, it was made in response to fussy Chicago housewives! Around the turn of the century, ice was harvested from Wisconsin lakes destined for Chicago iceboxes. The housewives there didn’t like cleaning out the weeds when the ice melted. Aquarius Systems' harvesters have been modified to suit all kinds of needs. A progression from picking up plants to picking up floating trash evolved in the 1970s. The aquatic plant harvester has come a long way from its crude and cumbersome origins. The future holds infinite possibilities.
