And it's made in the USA.
This device lets you place it on top of the root of the weed, then step down to penetrate and grasp. With some turning (much turning in some of the bigger crab grass) and pulling, I was surprised to pull out 6" of roots from a problem crab grass cluster on my neighbor's lawn bordering my own. (it probably takes more effort to bend over to try to pull manually than it is to use this weeder to twist and pull.)
I cannot imagine how to achieve similar results without having a shovel and remove much more dirt than needed.
One thing that you need to watch out for is if you have to pull out a large cluster of crab grass, you may want to get some soil available to patch up the area. This device removes a small amount of dirt while clasping the roots. (not really an issue for most weeds, but if you have a large crab grass cluster of 3-5, I have found having a handfull of soil to level out the small holes is helpfull.)
Well, I happened to run across a web page about pulling dandelions that said the taproot is very fragile and that one would have better luck pulling one out complete if the ground was moistened. I thought maybe this would work with the Weed Hound. So after a gentle rain, I got in the yard and tried it. Sure enough, reading that was the key! It was pulling dandelions, taproot and all, with very little effort! I was shocked at just how effective it was. Some of these taproots were up to a foot long! And once I got this figured out, pulling those nasty buggers actually became fun and addictive! Once I started, I pulled and pulled and the next thing I knew it was nearly 5 hours later! I'm loving it now! There's something strangely satisfying when you see that taproot just hanging down off the end of the Weed Hound's spikes...
So if you are having troubles with this tool doing the same thing, try doing it after a rain or watering of your lawn. Night and day difference, LITERALLY! I nearly thought about throwing this thing out until I read that. After this, I'll never get rid of this guy!Read more ›
The thing is, it only works well when the ground is soft. Hard ground (like much of my yard) will stop it, and you end up just grinding up the plant instead of pulling it out. And believe the other reports that it doesn't always grab the root all the way. And it will also grab a decent chunk of dirt too.
Today I gave up fighting in hard dirt and got down on my knees with the fishtail weeder, like I'd done before I got this tool. Works like a charm. It's a 5 dollar old-skool tool whose design has stood the test of time. If you have a hard time bending over, then try out the Weed Hound (borrow one if you can first). But if you can work on your knees, or don't mind bending over, stick with a hand weeder. It's actually faster and more effective.
