This new trenching/digging tool is lightweight at just over three pounds, so it won’t wear you out as quickly as a conventional, heavier hoe.
This curious-looking gizmo is designed to rake rocks— perfectly! It gathers rocks between three-quarters of an inch to four-inches in diameter in the top three inches of soil. Then you use the basket-shaped head to scoop them up and deposit them elsewhere.
And last but not least there’s the power rake. When raking leaves it’s a back saver, as it glides over leaves on the push stroke; on the pull stroke the upper shield prevents leaves from tumbling over the tines, all without having to lift the rake at all.
This tool also does a good job of raking and leveling soil, even dethatching the lawn. And it features a rotating grip that reduces wrist strain.
