Getting rid of weeds now saves so much grief later on
Hoeing now, disturbs slug eggs, reducing their population, reducing loss of baby shoots.
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.
- The blade of the oscillating hoe works parallel to the ground.
- 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.
- Blades are made of high tempered spring steel to stay sharp.
- Hoe widths available: 125mm & 85mm (other on request).
- Blades are screwed on for easy replacement.
