Big news for serious gardeners: we finally found a worthy successor to the popular Planet Jr. and Red Pig wheel hoes, which have both ceased production. Two professional gardeners, tired of the cheaply-made, non-American tools they found in lawn and garden stores, took matters into their own hands and built a new, improved low-wheel hoe. It combines ease of use with ultra-tough construction, promising decades of service in the garden. A low center of gravity makes the wheel hoe easy to push and maneuver, a great deal faster than a hand hoe and gentler on your back. Metal wheel means you'll never have to worry about a flat tire. Even better, Hoss handles and implements fit old Planet Jr. or Red Pig cultivators, so get Granddad's old one out of the shed and restore its full potential. All parts made in the USA.
Deluxe Model-Comes with a pair of adjustable-width sweeps (6"L each) and 3 cultivator teeth (5-3/4"L each). Mount sweeps facing out for cultivating close to plants without damaging roots, or in for working between rows. Cultivator teeth feature narrow throats and wide feet for full cultivation under the surface of soil.
Small improvements over older models add up to a big difference-Oil-impregnated bronze bushings ensure wheel stays tight and won't wobble. Dust caps on each side of wheel keep dust and dirt out, preventing rust and wear. Sweeps have nickel-plated steel rivets for extra strength. Adjust tilt of the toolbar and handles to your preference.
Premium Construction-Lightweight, yet heavy-duty, with absolutely no plastic.
Note: Some assembly required. Takes about 20 minutes with basic tools, including Allen wrenches.
