Crucial Rope Mop Wringer Skimmer


The Crucial Rope Mop C-13e skimmer is designed for stationary skimming from vessels, docks, or the shoreline. Clamps are provided on the base of the skimmer to allow the unit to be attached to the top of a 55 gallon drum or other suitable container.

As the skimmer is operated, the mop is wrung once on each pass through the unit by two 3" diameter squeeze rollers, which are capable of pulling up to 100 feet of 4" mop. The unit comes with a 100' of 4" mop material and a floating pully.
