I never thought I'd pay $30 for a weed puller but, having tried a few cheaper types of weeding tools, I figured I had to do something. Frankly, I was so skeptical that I didn't throw the box out or even remove the attached instruction card -- so convinced was I that I would be returning it.

Well, I have been using it for the last couple of days and I am so pleased with it I've just ordered another one (so my spouse can get out there and pull those *$@#*(&@#_ weeds too!).

Okay, I can't say that I had FUN exactly, but I have to admit I was almost happy to find another dandelion or thistle just for the sheer joy of pulling it up without the slightest effort. It successfully yanked up large-rooted weeds in my lawn area, in a bare soil area and in a section covered in wood chips (although the wood chips proved harder to remove from the tines).

You have to position the tool carefully over the center of the weed (although if don't, it's no big deal, you just give it another shot). And yes, it doesn't pull up the entire tap root (you'd need three sticks of dynomite to do that) but it gets up enough of the root mass that it's doubtful the darned thing will grow again.

I highly recommend this tool and I feel that, despite its high initial cost, it can definitely save money on less effective tools or -- heaven forbid -- chemical herbicides!

This is a fantastic labor-saver; if you have weeds that need to go, this is your answer.

I hesitated to buy it, reading through the reviews here, because my primary weed-of-choice is a HORRENDOUS infestation of crab grass (or crabgrass, depending on your spelling preference) and the reviews were mixed--2/3 said it worked on crab grass, 1/3 said it didn't.

IT WORKS. And easily.

Last summer, I spent several afternoons in 112 degree Texas heat, on my hands and knees, cutting crab grass out of our St. Augustine yard. Blistered hands. Tired back. Sunburn. Bug bites. About 35 plants removed after about 5 hours of really, really hot, hard work.

We'd tried killing it with weedkiller that said "safe for St Augustine"--it wasn't. Huge swaths of the St Augustine died after spraying the crab grass, which just seemed to get bigger. So, after talking to a horticulturist, we tried heavy acid vinegar. No go: "what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger."

Finally, my husband, in a fit of frustration, said he was going to kill it all with Round-Up and we'd re-seed the yard if we had to. So in September, he sprayed. The crab grass looked like it died. The St Augustine DID die. And this Spring--behold the miracle--green crab grass. A yard FULL of healthy, green crab grass and yellowed, dead St. Augustine. And two new puppies, which meant that re-seeding the lawn was OUT for this year. The only answer was to hand-extract the crab grass and pray that some random strands of St Augustine had survived the nuclear option.

So, I found this upright weeder on Amazon, bought it, and was AMAZED that it truly worked and was EASY. No more back-breaking labor; no more blistered palms. And I'm quickly making a dent in the crab grass infestation.

We have a waaaay-too-big backyard that was graded but not grassed by our builder prior to move-in. We spent time getting the inside exactly how we wanted it then decided to conquer the backyard. It is both fortunate and unfortunate that our lot falls right in the midst of the blackland prarie trail. It's fortunate because we have amazing plants that bloom there naturally like Buffalo gourds, soft-leaf yucca, gorgeous flowers like bluebonnets, etc...but with such plant life abounding, the weeds came with them. In droves.

So prepping the backyard for the good stuff meant back breaking work. I tried out (via borrowing) several weeders during the height of my weeding (which is still continuing and, as weeding goes, always will.)

The other ones I tried, which seemed to be super popular, got little weeds well, but not-so-much if they weren't tiny. Or they required me to use a loud drill with the weeder as an attachment (got soooo annoying after 5 min.) and hold the weeder exactly in the right place and "thread" a curly-q bit through the weed or it wouldn't pull.

I began to think solarization or a drum of vinegar would be easier.

Then we got the Fiskars. **harps and angels sing out**

This didn't just clip the weeds to allow the roots to grow, or sling 'em around so the seeds sprouted elsewhere as you pulled, or just pull out the baby weeds. This helped even with the Big Daddy weeds. Plop down on the weed, step on the foot petal and the claws go down in the dirt for you to rip em out WITH the roots when you release it back up. Because the claws continue to hold the weed, you can then deposit them into a wheel barrel or whatever.

I actually read about this weed eater in a garden book as the preferred one and tracked it down.

I got one of these over a year ago. For the first 8 months, it was a joy to use. It is one of the easiest to handle weed pullers I've ever owned (I have at least 6 at any one time).

Well, it got a lot of use for the first 5 months. The last of those five months, I noticed that the 'weed eject' function wasn't quite so smooth as before, and it took a light kick on the lever arm to release weeds. Still, it worked.

Winter came and went, and I've been plucking weeds like mad for the last month. Today, my Uproot weeder cracked at the base of the nylon surround for one of the 4 metal blades. It does not appear to be a repairable fault.

I don't know if this is typical or not, but it's increasingly hard to find these -- and Fiskars has a new model out, with only one blade that seems to work fairly well (I have one of these also). It could be that they quietly dropped the model because of a breakage problem.
