Here is a testimonial from Larry a happy customer.

Hi John.

I just had to drop you a note and let you know how VERY pleased I am with the muck scoop. It works like a charm. I just did get the opportunity to get in the water with it today. We had a significant flash flood here last weekend that did quite a bit of damage around the pond so I had to fix all of that before I could start the muck removal.

I had to make a modification to my thought of using the tractor because the banks are still mud here after a flash flood…but with a little thought of how to pull the scoop from the pond, I got everything working and even though climbing in and out of the pond is not my favorite thing to do wading through (and getting stuck at times) the muck, the scoop just plows right through it, scoops it up and off we go 50′ up the bank. I have already scooped out more muck in one hour today than I did with any other method over an entire day. With a little practice I got the scoop to do really full loads.

Thanks for a great invention, a great product and one that fits my needs perfectly. I am delighted!!!!!!! Tired…but delighted [grin].


Here are two more.

Here is a testimony from two of my customers who bought both the muck master scoop and winch.

Hi John. Your machine works as advertised. Really liked it!

I worked for about an hour today. Wading through the muck is hard work. Probably 5% done. My area that I am trying to clean is 15′ wide by 40′ long. Huge undertaking. I was able to get some of the old cattail roots up along the way, which is sweet.

I can give you his name if you request it. In one hour of time he removed about 1,400 pounds of muck and weeds using the scoop and the winch he invested in.

Won’t it be nice to have a cleaner lake or pond?

Here is a testimonial about the winch vs a quad.

John, I would like to thank you for your ingenuity and helpfulness in dealing with my messy ponds. I don’t like the idea of dumping expensive chemicals into the pond year after year to control the weeds, therefore I have been using the cutting/raking method to try to control them for the last few years and have been quite frustrated with it. It’s been a lot of work and has done nothing for the muck problem. Although it will still be a lot of work, the Muck Master will clearly be much more effective in cleaning up my ponds. I don’t mind putting the work in if I feel the results will be there. I also like the idea that I can use it to make the ponds deeper. I’m thinking of it as a poor man’s drag line. I love the fact that I can use it far beyond what a backhoe can reach, and am only limited by my own energy and the amount of rope connected.

As I had hoped, the winch is working much better than the quad I was using for retrieval. It’s a lot easier to coordinate the movement with my helper because it’s a much more controlled retrieval process. Although the quad was certainly capable of doing the job, it was difficult to control the speed and I simply felt I was fighting with the scoop much of the time. That is not the case when using the winch. I am having a much easier time controlling the position of the scoop and as a result am having better success getting it loaded with muck and weeds. I certainly feel the winch system is well worth the investment. Both in terms of the amount of effort, as well as the savings in gas and wear and tear on the quad with the constant back and forth. The quad was also presenting problems with the space needed for some of the pulling, which is no longer an issue with the winch.

Thanks again for all your valuable assistance.
