Pruner designed for smaller hands.
Designed for those with smaller hands who may prefer a smaller, lighter pruner. It's comfortable to use yet every bit as sturdy and powerful as any other of the Felco pruners.
This great tool is ideal for small pruning work such as grape vines, shrubs and young trees, it is also the first choice of many florists. The anvil blade is screw-mounted for easy replacement. The shorter blades facilitate closer cutting to the stem of the plant.More information
OSCILLATING OR STIRRUP HOE - FANTASTIC WEEDING TOOL
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.
- Bllades are made of high tempered spring steel to stay sharp.
- Hoe widths available: 85mm (others on request).
- Blades are screwed on for easy replacement.
