Has anyone tried using this on crabgrass?

No, but it works fine on dandelions.

Why can’t you buy it in store. I want it now.

It is a third party item from PRC you’ll be sorry. HD just wants you to believe they have everything. You won’t be able to return it to store when it breaks. Mine broke in first attempt, bad welds.

Would this work on/in landscaping rocks? The big rocks.

If you mean in between the rocks, I would say yes, but if you have gravel or small rocks between the big rocks I'd say no. It really works the best in soil, where you can really plunge the tips down in the dirt as deep as you can. They only go down about 3"-4", and then you twist and pull, sometimes it gets the whole long root of the dandelion, sometimes not.

I purchased this weed ziner, stand up weeding tool and was very disappointed in its performance. It will work on small weeds but not big weeds. I would have taken mind back but I waited to late.

Pull the knob on top up to pull the spikes up. place the bottom on the center of the week right on the ground, push down on the knob then pull the whole thing up. It will pull the weed, root and all. Pull the knob up to release the weed. I just use a 5 gallon bucket and dump it into the compost pile when done. Sometimes, I put a little veg oil on the spikes if they are getting sticky.

So disappointed!!!!
I really wanted this to work! I had high hopes, that this tool would be the greatest weeding helper ever. This tool failed the very first time I tried to use it. The moment I stepped my foot on the foot plate and plunged it into the ground at the crown of a large dandelion it snapped from its spot welding and would not reset. The weld on the foot plate is so meager, is is nearly severed completely. I’m so annoyed at the time and effort wasted already, now I’ve got to return it and try something else!

Cheap & Awkward
This tool lasted me about 6 uses. I liked what it accomplished, but its just too cheap fo reasonable use. I learned after the 1st use that you really can't use the foot part for leverage. it was clearly the weak point, so I decided to just use me arms and not step on the tool at all. That became awkward because the handle just uses one side like a cane. If it came to a T shape you could use equal force to get the tool into the ground. So using it felt awkward to push all your force on that one side. And in the end, the tool broke clean off at the foot pedal anyway, even after I stopped using it. Bottom line, you need to use force to get to the root of the weed, and this product just can't handle it.

We love our dandelions and what they do for the bees but in our front yard and side yard they choke out the grass and the bushes. We like to control the dandelions in a non-toxic and safe way so Weed Zinger has been amazing! I love that the kids can do it for me and they actually have fun doing it. No groaning! *I received a sample for review purposes only. Positive review was not required! We loved it.

The first thing I loved about the Weed Zinger was that it requires no assembly, it's ready to go straight out of the packaging. I've been using the Weed Zinger for approximately 2 months now and it has been a time saver and a back and knee saver! No more bending over to pull weeds! If you or someone you know has a bad back or knees, I cannot recommend it more. I also love that it is so easy to use a child can use it. My 14-year-old son, who hates pulling weeds, actually loves using it. That's a win-win for me. And we have a puppy and don't want to use chemicals in our yard and the Weed Zinger easily pulls weeds without the use of chemicals. Note: I received the product and compensation to thank me for my time in testing out the product, but all opinions expressed are 100% my own.

I was provided with this product to try out, any opinions are 100% my own. Yardwork isn't a favorite of my husband's and when he used Weed Zinger for the first time he said "This is awesome!" He couldn't believe it actually worked and so easily. He went around the yard gathering weeds for the next half hour. One of my four year old twins even helped - his favorite part of course was shooting the weeds out of the zinger. Highly recommend if you have a yard to tend to, or as a gift for a gardener or for Father's Day!

This is such a simple but clever tool for pulling weeds. No bending down and it really does do a good job getting the weed out. It's fun to fling the weeds but you can also just drop it in a bucket or garbage can too. My son complained far less about having to pull the weeds with the Weed Zinger. He's a teenager so he complains if he has to move his finger too much, so that was a pretty good testimony. Definitely worth it if you have weeds in your yard you want to get rid of without using chemicals. I received product and compensation to thank me for my time in testing out the product, but all opinions expressed are my own.

This aging gardener loves the Weed Zinger! As an avid gardener and product reviewer, I received this product to test out and I'm so glad I did! The longer I've gardened, the more challenging I find tasks, like weeding, to be, especially taking a toll on my back and knees. Any help is this area is well appreciated and the Weed Zinger is a great asset to have, especially when I'm clearing our garden beds for Spring planting. It's so easy to use and effectively pulls up the entire week, roots and all with very little effort involved. The directions say to use after the rain when soil is more pliable (always a smart move,) but I also found that the tool worked equally well in drier soil conditions. It's a very sturdy piece that's well designed. All in all, very impressed and very happy with our Weed Zinger!

I received product and compensation to thank me for my time in testing out the product, but all opinions expressed are my own. I have been testing out the Weed Zinger and with "STEP-TWIST-ZING!" it not only saves me from bending over, but makes removing those pesky lawn intruders FUN! I like that NO assembly is required for this tool and it is so simple to use. I have been using it to remove grass stickers from my Florida Lawn.

I received the Weed Zinger and compensation to thank me for my time in testing out the product. All opinions expressed are my own. The Weed Zinger was very easy to use. Weeds were removed in a just a few minutes all the way down to the roots. It's definitely easy to use. Our 7 year old niece used it. It kept her busy while we planted flowers. The 3 steps of step, twist and zinger were all easy for young and old to manipulate. The weeds didn't zing quite as far as the packaging said they would. We could only get them to go several inches. Overall, great product. We will be purchasing more for gifts!
