Questions & Answers


How to order this item

Asked by Zack April 22, 2021

I was fortunate that it was available for instore purchase/pickup at a Home Depot that was not to far away. It was worth the 30 minute drive as it works great.

does this work in a rock bed area?

Asked by ladybug March 3, 2021

It will not work in a rock bed nor in soil that may be mixed with pebbles or rocks because it will not penetrate and will jam the tool. Eventually you will end up breaking the fork like part that digs out the entire weed root.

Does this work on crabgrass?

Asked by LU July 31, 2020

Yes it does .Anything that is weeds .this thing will do the job

Why does the ejection slide no longer work? I used it for an hour with no problem clearing the w...

Asked by Matt June 9, 2020

I know mine has gotten stuck and I had to clean it because it was clogged with clumps of grass or mud or a rock stuck in it and it worked much better after I cleaned it. You may need to inspect the tool a little bit more to make sure everything was cleaned and no loose screws or nuts.

Is it best to on dry dirt, or just after a rain? I tried yesterday and all I got was dirt packed in the claw.

Asked by Amelia June 8, 2020

You do not want to use it when it’s rock hard dry soil or wet and muddy some thing in between. You really have to center it right over the weed to capture all the weed and the root that goes with it.

Will you have to fill the hole aeration holes created since you would discard the weed vs leaving the plug on the soil?

Asked by PEJAEG April 26, 2020

This may pull multiple tweeds, but it wasn’t designed with the intent to achieve pulling multiple weeds. It’s great to help from bending over to pull weeds.

Can I use this to remove weeds in gravel?

Asked by Benou January 2, 2020

Yes, Works Great! Very impressed!

will this work on dallisgrass?

Asked by got2goweeds April 29, 2019


Will this pull large thistles, if they are cut down first?

Asked by Pez April 11, 2019

Not sure. I was able to pull out 3-4in dandelions with this weeder.

Would this work on weeds that grow in between pavers on the patio?

Asked by Sadie October 3, 2018

No. For that you would need something like liquid RoundUp.

broke after 40 pulls, yet capable.
The achilles’ heel of otherwise sturdy and capable tool is the little pin that holds the metal rod connected to the retracting handle mechanism. I was able to continue working by replacing the pin with a nail that I U bended and then hacksawed its protruding rest.

I really didnt have the problem w the weeds getting stuck. Its just dirt. Sometimes you donneed aome arm strength to push it out though. It took out all the huge weeds like nothing. Didnt do well on crab grass though

The blades to pull the weed work very well but the release mechanism is hard to work so it was difficult to remove the weed from the tool.

Planter not puller
This maybe sold for pulling weeds, but it is even better for planting 288 pachysandra plants. Pulls out a small plug of dirt - even in hard clay - just the correct size for small plants.

Bought 2 wks ago and Home Depot. Easy to use and very effective. Lightweight, excellent price. Highly recommend for anyone! It works better than expected. My boyfriend has a slight addiction and a war against the dandilions and buttercups. He is determined to win Haha!

Satisfying Weed Puller
Ar first, it was a bit difficult to understand on how it works and it was a bit stiff. After a few weeds, it definitely got easier and satisfying to see how it pulls the weeds at ease. I would recommend to use after it rained or the grass is a little damp. Check out the image attached.

Works great but takes work
Had about a hundred dandelions in my yard - tried spraying and hand digging but couldn’t keep up with it. Found out about this device but was turned off by some if the bad reviews but figured I’d try it and return it if it was junk. First - it has a 15 yr warranty so if any if the teeth break off it shouldn’t be a problem but I can’t see how you’d break any teeth unless you’re standing in the thing trying to break through rocks or roots. Second is the issue with releasing the dirt - yes it gets stuck like people say - yes even the hand slide release won’t get it out - and yes you have to figure out another way sometimes (by hand, stepping on the bolt, using every ounce of strength). After about 50 weeds I found out that if you step it in half way, pull up a bit to loosen the ground, and then go the rest of the way that it doesnt get stuck. You can even eject the dirt out like you are pumping a shotgun. And yes, it does take out a clump of dirt with the weed but I don’t see how else you expect to get the root out. For me this was the best option but it still involves work.
