A most popular tool! The double action Oscillating Hoe has an outstanding reputation for being fast and effective.  Also called the stirrup hoe.

How to use: Stand in an upright position holding the long handle. Move the hoe backwards and forwards using small movements (10-15cms) so that the hinged bladed moves back and forwards in the soil. The blade is parallel to the ground and cuts the weeds off at the root.

  • Weeds are undercut by pushing/pulling the sharp blade through the top layer of the soil.
  • Effect - weeds cut off and soil surface loosened for better air/water penetration.
  • Bllades are made of high tempered spring steel to stay sharp.
  • Hoe widths available: 85mm - 125mm (other on request).
  • Blades are screwed on for easy replacement.
