3.0 out of 5 stars The good and the bad, April 10, 2012
This review is from: Corona GT 3060 Extendable Handle Hoe (Lawn & Patio)
There are a number of pluses to this tool like the handy double head which serves several needs, but there are also some downsides to consider. I've had my tool for a couple of years and have managed to bend the hoe part slightly and bend one of the tines on the claw, but not badly and the tool is still useful. The bigger problem though is that the handle no longer extends. It has locked up tight in the shorter position which is not long enough for an adult to use comfortably on the ground. I still get use from the tool turning my compost and in my raised garden, but am disappointed that I can't also use it for roughing up the ground where I want to reseed grass or hack a particular weed.

I'd say it is a good tool for light work, especially when you prefer one length to the handle--i.e. set it and forget it because after a while, you may not be able to change it. I'm sure my tool must have gotten wet as I can think of no other reason for it to lock into position than interior rust. It is stored mostly out of the elements, but not all the time. Bottom line, for the modest price it still serves a purpose and I continue to use it, but be aware of its shortcomings.
