This one will work on the tough stuff with a deep tap root. Simply place the spiral tip next to the stalk and screw the spiral all the way into the dirt around the stalk. Then pull it out. End of story for the weed. Works best with moist soil. Note: this is not a delicate process, so it may be better to use another type of weeder when working on a manicured lawn, but it really does the job - period. The handle is 22 long.

Effective use of this tool will be accomplished by centering the spiral over the root of the weed to be removed, with the tool perpendicular to the ground. Thread the tool rotating clockwise all the way in until the entire spiral is just below the surface. Pull the tool (with the weed) straight out. Try to keep the tool as perpendicular to the ground as you can. Do NOT bend the tool or try to pry or leverage the weed out. In hard, compacted soil or clay, it may be necessary to screw the spiral in and out a few times before attempting to extract the weed.

  • Well Made and Useful

    Gregory Meier, 6/14/2014 I find this tool to be thorough in removing weeds all the way to the tap root, however,the operation leaves your lawn with a 2 wide by 5" deep hole. The tool is well constructed, with a comfortable ash handle, if kept out of the weather it should last a life time."
  • Dandelion's Bane

    John R Mead, 4/14/2014 For years I used Grandpa's Weeder, but had problems getting the taproots; they're really long with mature dandelions. With this tool I've pulled foot + taproots. There is a bit of a learning curve on placing the tool, you have to properly center it over the dandelion. The best time to use this is after it's rained, so the soil is soft and pulls easily. I find that I have to kneel down to really locate the center of the dandelion, so the short handle is actually a plus, as well as allowing for a full body pull when removing the plug of soil from the ground. I'm very pleased with this tool, and would recommend it for anyone dealing with weeds with long taproots.

  • Handle Not Long Enough

    Glen S, 11/5/2013 I would give this a five if the handle was long enough to use standing up. I like the idea and design of the tool and it is well built, but I am almost 70 years old and my knees and back don't like the short handle. Maybe you could offer a model that could be used standing up.

  • Great Tool

    Tina, 7/11/2013 After going on vacation, I came back to an overgrown garden. Bought this weeder so could remove weeds without doing any damage. Love it!
  • Nice Handle - Brittle Spiral

    J. Condon, 6/20/2011 Undone by a dandelion tap root, this tool bent and then broke. It has a very sturdy handle, but the metal spiral is unable to deliver the promised leverage. A real disappointment.

    Response By: Garrett Wade Tech Department
    Thanks for your feedback Ms. Condon, it was a pleasure speaking with you regarding your experience with this tool. After you explained the specifics of the failure we were able to determine that the small tag with very limited instructions were inadequate and led to the tool failure (after you spiral the tool over the weed, pull up - don't pry the weed out). Thanks to your feedback we are developing more specific instructions to be included with future shipments. Let us know how the replacement we sent works for you.
