Great for tine weeding, cultivating, raking and more. We highly recommend this tool. Quickly and efficiently remove emerging weeds when they are easiest to kill. Most effective at removing thread stage weeds over established crops when used like a tine weeder, but doubles as a cultivator when the weeds get a little bigger. The key to its multiple uses lies in varying the amount of downward pressure put on the handle during use. Easily replaceable tines. . 6" and 9" models are best for working between more mature crops that are between 5" and 8" apart. Also very useful for cultivating crusty soil in over-wintering crops, or for working in tight areas such as greenhouses or raised beds.
