- Model FX Series - Aquatic Weed Harvesters



The FX SERIES is designed for rapid deployment and frequent and effortless site to site “leap-frogging”. The paddle wheels are tilted up with hydraulic power. The diesel engine, fuel, and hydraulic systems are mounted to the lower deck, and are protected against water splash. The elevated operator’s bridge with its controls can easily be tilted down for passages under extra low clearance bridges over land or water. This harvester is ideal for contract operations.
