Absolutely back saving
I bought this weed puller at Bunnings after reading reviews here.
So glad I did, makes pulling out flat leaf weeds so easy.
It does leave a bit of a hole in the ground, so before shooting off the weed, I have been shaking off excess dirt back to the hole.
So much easier than back breaking bending. I wish I had bought one years ago.
As I have only had it for two weeks I can’t say if it will last but sure hope it does. Not cheap at $74 but worth it.
Help your weed-pulling back
We, in our 70s, dislike weeds, even in our footpath grass. Hubby found Fiskars Weed Puller online so we purchased from Rock around the Block and found it did the job on larger/medium weeds. Small weeds...just wait til they can be clasped by the prongs o/wise they tend to 'slide through'. Removal takes a fair chunk out so may need to refill with soil/ sand/fresh grass root. Liked it so much, got it for birthday pressie for middleaged daughter and telling all our older friends as it gives your back a break and really extracts those hardy weeds.
Purchased in April 2019.
Must have tool for all gardeners
So easy to use I bought this one from Bunning for 74 dollars because of the 25yr warranty ,ahead of the cheaper version that cost of 35 dollars.i found the unit very easy and fast to use, I can't believe I hadn't seen it before.5 stars
Fiskars.... You are LEGENDS...!!! Yay...This is one Awesome 5 Star product.
I have had my Fiskars weed puller for about 2 years now. It is, by far, the best thing to use to pull those ugly Flatweeds, Dandelion type flatweeds or similar, from your lawn or grass. It will remove most weeds that have a taproot core. I have pulled many hundreds of weeds from my garden with ease. Some were quite large. This thing works a treat without breaking your back or digging large holes to remove each weed. This is a must have Garden Implement unless you live in an apartment, Flat or similar tiny Box dwelling... Awesome...!!!
Best $74 I have spent
What would take me a day to clear a patch of weeds and cost me a stiff and sore body, now takes a couple of hours of easy work. It does pick up a lot of soil if you have sticky or wet soil but on dry lose soil you can shake it off. I carry grass seeds in a pouch and throw them in the divot it leaves behind. I have been able to bring patches of my lawn back from 90% goats head bindi to lawn you can walk on with bare feet. I have accepted the fact the place will never be totally free without ripping the yard up and laying turf which my finances won't allow, so this tool provides me with a good compromise that won't break my back or bank. Also the more you use it the more you get the knack of using it efficiently. I have had neighbours come up and ask me where I purchased it from when they see me blitzing through the weeds in the lawn. Absolutely brilliant for tap root type of weeds. I find it best on bigger weeds.
At first cynical, later fully impressed...
At first I was cynical when I watched the videos on You Tube. Nevertheless, I still went ahead to purchase it. When I came back home, I immediately tried it on various types of weeds in the garden and it worked beyond my expectations. Now, I'm fully impressed with the product. Well done with the invention. No more sore backs and aches!
Back breaking weeding made Soooooo Ezzzzeee !
I already had a Fiskars plastic weeder similar in looks but it was utterly useless, so I was reluctant to purchase another one, until I inspected this one and saw how they had redesigned it and made it very superior, by using metal prongs. metal mechanism, and a great ejection system.
I purchased it from Bunnings and have been using it for approx 3 months. The first time I used it I thought about returning it, but I persevered and in time I realized it was me at fault.
The trick was to have the prongs opened, and placed over the centre of the weed, and then push down with your foot on the base leg, then pull lever towards you, and out comes the weed every time, lift weed over bin and use hand slider to eject into bin.
Now if like me you are using your arms and shoulders which become very sore, you are using it all WRONG ! .....When used correctly their is NO effort nor pain, and you just want to keep going, I filled a wheelie bin in no time (1 acre back yard).
I hesitated at the price $74.00 at first, but once I used it properly I would now gladly pay more (shooosh). The days of slow tedious back breaking weed pulling have gone, but remember use it simply without real effort and you will love it !
I was impressed
I got this from Bunnings for $74 which is a little expensive for what it really is. However, it does the job well. It was really easy to pull up weeds from my lawn. It does take a bit of soil with it when ripping out the roots but this was when I was pulling weeds on a dry lawn. This would work great after it rains. It sure beats getting on your hands and knees.
Weeds keep coming back
We all hate weeds and using herbicides so I thought this product may be the solution. Unfortunately it isn't. It will remove most of the weed but also a lot of soil in the process. Carry a bucket of clean sand with you to fill in the hole. When removing the troublesome weed, unfortunately roots can still remain which grow back to the original problem in a short period of time.
