Go Up Go Down


Recall the old saying that I would not touch that with a ten foot pole.  Well I did.  My first water machine was a Freedom 2 with a weighted coil, 12 foot coil wire and a ten foot pole.
My scoop was made from a juice can with both ended removed, a pipe clamp for a handle with mess chicken wire affixed to one end of the can.  It lasted for about a dozen scoops and I had to make a new scoop.
Had to go under water and scoop while at the same time hold the pole upright so that the detector wouldn't take a splash.  A feat.
By the way I think it was quite a few years later that I brought my first real water machine  which was a heavy Seahunter XL500 if I remember correctly.  With it also purchased a stainless steel scoop that I still use to this day....once the ice leaves !  Be safe all!
