Sturdy Wheel Hoe


From $239 at

If your farm or garden is too small for a tractor but too big for hand tools alone, the Valley Oak Wheel Hoe has you covered. This versatile tool accepts multiple quick-change attachments, such as a furrower, a cultivator, a hiller, and multiple weeding blade assemblies. The ability to switch out attachments without tools is something that editor Russell Mullin appreciates; simply pull out the pin, remove your attachment, and replace with another. “I really like that Valley Oak uses quick-release pins instead of nuts and bolts for attaching the various implements. I don’t have to worry about forgetting my wrench back in the toolshed if I decide to switch attachments out in the field.”
