Oscillating or Stirrup Hoe - Fantastic Weeding Tool

Our most popular tool! The double action Oscillating Hoe has an outstanding reputation for being fast and effective. Also called the stirrup hoe. 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. The weeds are cut of and the soil surface loosened for better air/water penetration.

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

  • Blades are made of high tempered spring steel to stay sharp.
  • Three hoe widths available: 85mm - 125mm - 175mm.
  • Blades are screwed on for easy replacement. Spare blades always available.
  • Made in Switzerland.
  • Comes without a handle. We recommend a 1.7m ash handle. This enables the user to stand in an upright position, thus making it easier on the back.

Excellent hoe
I ordered this as a gift for my son who is very pleased with it. We have one ourselves and it is by far the best hoe we ever purchased. Delivery time was excellent and we were kept abreast of delivery details all the way. Well done. Review by Bernadette / (Posted on 19/06/2020)

Have no weeds left in my garden. Brilliant
The best purchase I have made for the garden. I can't stop using it. I was using the old triangular hoe for years and the difference is just amazing. Read an article about it in a magazine. Would advise any gardener to have one and the ash handle is amazing. So good to order from fruithill farm and delivery was great Review by Nelly / (Posted on 07/06/2020)
