Oscillating Hoe

Anyone got one of these or used one, also known as a stirrup hoe. I've seen good reviews online and I don't get on too well with the dutch hoe I have so was thinking about investing. Seems like cost is around £30 for a good one which is more than I'd normally spend on allotment tools but worth if it makes the weeding a bit easier.

It's a bit like it but it's a multi tool so head only.

Yup I have a handle. I also have another head that I think might incorporate a similar hoe, will have a look later.

Yes! I bought an oscillating hoe and it's brilliant - really easy to use and slices through weeds very easily. I bought a fancy bronze one, as it's very sharp and kinder to the soil, but it's only for my garden so I don't have to worry about it being nicked!

"Oscillating hoe" sounds like a term that would get your Facebook page blocked lickety-split!

I use one of these https://wolfgarten-tools.co.uk/products/...eeder-10cm
It needs a handle too.
Its almost the only tool I use in the garden - one side as a hoe, flip it over and use the tines to drag out roots, rake, , flip it on its side and use the orner of the hoe bit to make a furrow for seed sowing.
I bought it when I had an allotment about 18 years ago, on the recommendation of a plot holder there who also advised me to buy the long reach handle so that I didn't have to walk on the soil.
Mine came with a free handtool version of the cultiweeder and, by coincidence, I've been using that his morning clearing some space to plant the broad beans.

I have similar to the one Broadway showed and one like Veggie's, but I prefer using a long shafted aluminium one with a stainless steel head, nice and light very sharp and good for digging a hole to bury the weeds, also very good for digging into the soil to give support when needing to restBig Grin
