I am a day ahead of schedule (feels good to not be behind the 8 ball this week). I will have everything cut by Thursday night and I am heading north to the cabin for a 4 day weekend. I am taken the quads and lots of BEER

Does anybody in the GR area know where I can rent a machine that will suck the debris out of a pond and then put the clean water back into the pond? Or does anyone know of a company that provides this service? Thanks guys.

Approx 20' to 40' across one way and 100' across the other way. It's a pond shared by a business and a golf course.

I have cleaned around the edges with a rake before but I need a much longer rake.
