Yea i've got one & works really well in calm water to make lots of ripples. After you set it out a couple times it gets easier & you can get it done faster. The first couple of times I got hands & sleeves wet from dropping shite

We have one in the rice field and it doesn't work very well. I think the water isn't deep enough to make the deeks look like they are feeding. The prop just spins in the middle and makes large bubbles which still creates ripples but its not what I expected.
I use one in a rice field and it works great. We leave it out and have a wire running to the blind. I did try to convert it to the remote controlled setup ad didn't like it. I just use a toggle switch wired to run it and leave the rest hooked up. On a calm day it's as good as it gets
I don't have the MOJO mallard maching, but I made a few motion decoys last season that worked pretty well. I used a duck but and attatched a bilge pump to the bottom with pvc on the discharge to make the bubbles/ripples. Made a water proof box to hold the battery. All hard wired, plug it in and go.

They work great for us in the timber. We leave ours wired up to our blind all season. Just take the 12v deep cycle battery out to recharge at night. They save your arse when there is little to no wind blowing.

So here's a question. I got the machine last night, if I hunt in the marsh and there's a current, is it going to float off? Is it supposed to sit on/touch the bottom or does it just float under the dekes? The instructions aren't very clear

You may have to anchor it. If it drifts into the other decoys it can be a major PITA. If it's windy you don't need it. Only hit it when they aren't looking. I've seen people get excited with them and they flared the ducks. If there is alot of vegetation in the water it can hang the prop up, especially in rice fields.
