2 Newsletter Issue 9 August 2014 The weed harvester with a trailer for transport was previously owned by Palmerston Council and used to keep lagoons in the area clear. It was replaced by a smaller, more transportable Truxor machine. The weed harvester with trailer was sold by auction on the internet to a Victorian business but they were only interested in the trailer and wanted to sell the 6 ton harvester locally. Friends of Fogg Dam. PO Box 1505, Humpty Doo. NT 0836 www.foggdamfriends.org info@foggdamfriends.org See the weed harvester in action at: www.youtube.com/watch?v=geyQyzFwmi8 MAJOR SPONSORS With approval from the Adelaide River Parks Joint Management Committee the weed harvester was purchased by Parks & Wildlife with Friends of Fogg Dam (FOFD) and a grant from Coolalinga Bendigo Bank. As the machine was second hand and hadnt been in use for a year it needed to be checked out and modifications made to make it suitable to remain in the water long term. Without a trailer, alternative transportation had to be organised. Shorelands Group generously donated transportation and launched the machine into the dam. The 2010 Charles Darwin University (CDU) study of aquatic vegetation in Fogg Dam is a valuable reference for developing a management plan for the dam. Norsign kindly donated production of sponsor logos to be attached to the harvester.
