Aquarius Systems Weed Harvester Equipment

The PLP&RD sends out a big Thank You to Tim Schoessow for attending the May 2023 Aquarius Systems seminar on harvester equipment maintenance and operational safety.  Included on this page are the documents shared with the attendees at the seminar.


We had a successful day of harvester equipment maintenance on Saturday.  We had a crew of 9 people show up, which was amazing!  We were able to change the engine oil and filters, fuel filters and hydraulic oil filters on the harvester and transport.  We also greased all moving parts and checked over the equipment.  The equipment is ready to be launched sometime in June.

Weed Harvester (Previous Years) Thank you so much to all the wonderful volunteers!
