There is nothing like it. I can easily pull the weeds and what's better, my kids can do it ! So satisfying to hear and feel the pop of the root coming out. Love it and I make everyone try it when they come over.
The quality is good.
I expected it to get weeds out, I did not expect it to be as easy as it is. Wow. I had just been taking a break for my wrists to heal up from my other weeders when I tried this and was in heaven compared to my other tools. It even pulls out huge crabgrass clumps with little to no effort.
First off, it works very very well. Very fast and effective. Next, overall the quality of the main piece (the metal head) is high quality and should last a number of decades I'm guessing.
This thing works great. Husband finds it fun to go and pop out a bunch of weeds. Eliminates bending down or crawling around.
Just buy one. You'll love it. Unless you like crawling around with a screw driver (or the like). Me personally try to minimize how much I have to squat, bend, and/or crawl. With dogs, chickens, and kids running around, we don't use chemicals. That said, dandelions love our yard... that is until now. The chickens love the pile if dandelions I drop in the run. What I don't give to them, just gets scraped off the tool and caught by the mower on the next go around. I was so impressed by how simply amazing this tool worked, I ordered one for my Dad to try (he dislikes squating, bending, and crawling around more than I do).
This is possibly the best single-use Weeder on the market. At least on dandelions it works perfectly taking the entire root out at once! It is very easy to use. Just stab into the top of the plant and put your foot on the foot rest and move the handle to the right. Out comes the plant roots and all. It's really nice as you get both your exercise, zen like meditation, and you do no harm to the environment. Construction is robust and it should last to hand down too your grandchildren if need be.
Easy to use. Great addition to my gardening arsenal.
This thing is awesome in Florida sandy soil. I ripped out a couple of dozen crabgrass in just minutes. Roots and all! quick shake to knock soil off and flip them in the compost bin. Done. Only thing that was disappointed was when I was done. Kinda sad when you can't find anymore to rip out. Ha!
Let's go pull weeds. This is the best little weed puller that I have found. I bought this one and it works Fantastic. It doesn't leave a large divot.
Its a great tool. Heavy duty. Not flimsy. I find it fun getting those dandelions now that i don't have to bend over.
I have more dandelions than grass. In 45 minutes I filled 3 -5 gallon buckets of weeds. Packed tight too!! I only time I had to bend down, was when my new puppy grabbed the weed from my puller faster than I could. LOL. I found that if I put it in at an angle, it pulled the weeds out better. But then again I have clusters of 4-5 per clump. It wouldn't have taken as long if I wasn't multitasking with a 10 week old puppy. GREAT TOOL bought extras for gifts�� shhh! I suggest that you buy at least two.
Because I'm ambitious I drilled a hole through it and replaced the tiny screw with a nut and bolt, product works better and I like it again. I give myself 5 stars.
Oh my god, I friggin' love this tool. I bought this on a whim given my husband and I bought our first house and know nothing about caring for a yard and boy has it come in handy. Our new house had a ton of weeds in the front yard and this tool helped me get most of them out in no time.

I've used this for hours without back strain or sore arms. The simple but ingenious design makes pulling and bending unnecessary. Loved this so much, I told all the neighbors about it!
This will be a go-to tool for me from now on, and I can't wait to get started on the rest of my yard. This might be my best purchase of the year so far!
I wheel my chair over to a big clump of dandelion, stand up, stick the prongs over the center of the clump, press down on the bar with one foot, pull back, and out pops the dandelion long tap root and all. I DID THAT!!! ....and it was SO easy. I just turned around, handed the weeder to hubby and away he went. He is now a believer and easily admits this is a game changer for old disabled people like us. This is for people of all ages. Thank you!!!
Highly recommend by a 44 year old dad, easy grip, good height, no bending over for hundreds of weeds in the lawn. God bless the inventor of this tool.
You don't have to bend over. Just pluck, tilt and easily pull that weed out

A neighbor showed me her Weeder and I ordered my own the same day. The next day on my daily walk, I saw another neighbor using one. I like doing my own weeding, but I'm not getting any younger; this tool will let me continue to do something I actually enjoy. My knees and back are grateful.
My husband absolutely loves this tool for the yard. It removes the weeds with ease!
This is the best tool ever! After my neighbor let me use his,I had to get my own. I love the simplicity and ease in using it.
The process of yanking out the weed was strangely satisfying! I don't think anyone can say that weeding is fun but this tool made it as close to fun as you can get, especially when you see a long root along with the weed you pulled.
I have both dandelions and false dandelions - the later are a bit tricky because the roots are woodier and more brittle than dandelion roots, so they break off easily at ground level if you try to weed by hand. This tool got the whole thing out, and made very short work of the dandelions, taking out the whole tap root even from my heavy, compacted lawn.
It arrived yesterday to the fascination, awe, and delight of all my co-workers. Upon returning home, me and my 4-year old daughter took to the lawn to give it a shot. Instantly she nailed down the rules. Heavy dad steps on the tool to sink the teeth into the ground at the heart of the 'bad plant', and she using her 4-year old super strength would leverage the tool and pry the weed from the earth. Very easy to use, and simple enough that my 4-year old successfully utilize this by herself and have fun doing it.
Works very well in ground that is not hard and dry. I would buy it again.
I'm almost 84 and this makes weeding fun and fruitful
As I perused reviews of this tool prior to buying, I noticed that some reviewers commented on the quality of the tool itself being poor. I was concerned about this, especially when the box arrived super mangled at my house. Surprisingly, the item inside was just fine. In fact, it's pretty well made.
This tool keeps me standing erect! Much easier than crawling around the lawn on my hands and knees!

I received my Grampa's weeder today, and I was immediately impressed with the strong yet simple design. The metal foot and claw are heavy and solid, and there are no plastic parts to break. I thought I would try it out and pull just a few weeds before dinner- my front lawn needs a lot of help but I don't use chemicals. So an hour goes by in a flash, and I had uprooted several hundred weeds and I only stopped because it was getting dark! It was actually fun and so easy to just pop them out using the lever action.
As an aging landscaper and maintenance gardener, this is going to save my butt this season. We have a lot of thistle, cress, horse nettle and other clumpy kind of weeds where I work. This just plucks them out of the ground. Root and all. Well constructed from quality materials.
I am 72 yrs old and back when I was a boy pulling weeds was done by hand, a backbreaking job. I wish my dad would have known about this weeder. I bought one last week to get rid of dandelions in my yard. My grandson thought it was amazing and loved using it. Needless to say next spring I am going to get a head start on my lawn.
I really missed this tool after the one I had for 15 years finally broke. Hard to find a new one but this came through!
This tool works great! I'm so thrilled that I can spend less time on this and also avoid using corrosive chemicals in most areas.
I ordered this because I wanted to remove crabgrass clumps from my lawn. Based on the good reviews, I thought I would give it a try. I liked the idea of not having to be on my knees or bend my back to pull out the weeds. Crabgrass is also difficult to pull out with hands alone. I have to say, I am very impressed with this tool! I centered the tool over the middle of the crabgrass clump and it pulled out easily! I just moved from clump to clump and was able to even do it one-handed, using my free hand to pull along my pop-up bin and pull the weed from the tool. It was satisfying to see how quickly I could remove the weeds from the yard. I kept moving along and before I knew it, I had been at it for 2 hours! I have a large yard and I filled several bags with the crabgrass clumps that I removed. I also used it on other random weeds I pulled along the way. It does leave a small hole in the soil where the weed has been removed, but nothing concerning. I plan to reseed the patches anyway. Will definitely use crabgrass prevention in the spring, but this tool helped with removing the summer/fall crabgrass clumps!
So simple, yet so effective. Finally got to say hello to dandelion roots before they met heat wave death in the yard waste bin. Better than any chemicals or pointless trimmer hacking.
I live in Orange County near the foothills and have rock hard clay soil that somehow still welcomes in these mallow weeds with massive taproots. I am not even remotely exaggerating when I say that I can put on gloves, wrap my hands around the root, and lean my entire 130 lbs of body weight back and either a) make no impact whatsoever, or b) snap the above ground parts off, leaving the taproot to return to haunt me another day. My strong-as-an-ox husband has no better luck. I was very skeptical that this thing was going to do the trick. I mean, how could a 100 year old technology not be utterly ubiquitous if it works, right? WRONG. This is gardening's best kept secret. In a matter of maybe 5 minutes (I was just trying to test it out), this tool had cleanly popped out the entire taproots of dozens upon dozens of weeds, saving me hours of work and LOADS of back pain. I'd previously given up on an area of my yard, but I think maybe, just maybe, I might be able to take it back with my new secret weapon.
