Our Oscillating Hoe is made with a powder-coated steel frame and a spring steel blade that’s sharpened on both sides. The sharpened blade is heavy-duty and durable so it cuts through the thickest weeds. Similar in design to a hula hoe, scuffle hoe or stirrup hoe, the Oscillating Hoe has a hinged 20 degree action that allows you to cut weeds in both a forward and backward direction.
The sharpened, thin blade slices through soils like butter, eliminating all weeds in its path. This wheel hoe attachment works great in all soil types and is strong enough to penetrate the surface on the hardest, clay soils. For the most effective use, push the wheel hoe with a shuffling motion so that the oscillating action of the hoe can flip weeds as you travel along the row.
Available in 6”, 8” and 12” lengths, the Oscillating Hoe is the perfect tool for weeding between garden rows. Use the 6” version of this hula hoe on winter crops such as mustard greens or lettuce that typically have narrower row spacing. Use the 12” version on traditional summer crops that tend to have wider row spacing. The spring steel blade provides a shallow cultivation that allows you to weed close to plants without damaging the feeder roots.
In addition to removing existing weeds, the oscillating hoe is great for weed prevention. The best way to manage weeds in the vegetable garden is through frequent, shallow cultivation. When this is done at least once a week, it will remove weeds when they are in the threadlike stage, barely visible to the naked eye. This will prevent weeds from every going to seed and becoming a persistent problem in the vegetable garden.
