Last year I used a wheel hoe to work my vegetable garden and looks like I will be using from now on. It wasn't as hard to use as I thought. Wondering if anyone here uses one and how you like it.

Here's a pic of wheel hoe. It's a lot different than the big wheel one folks used when I was growing up.

That is really interesting. I never saw one like that.

Didn't the big wheel model only have one wheel also?

Where did you find that model?

Yes, all the big wheeled ones I've seen have been single wheels. This one is from a company in Georgia called Hoss Tools. You can also purchase as a single wheel. I can convert my double to a single wheel, but so far haven't had a need to. To me, this one is easier to push, but them big wheeled ones have been around a long time.

Blinking Thanks for the source. I'll have to check it out. Planting time comes faster every year as I get older. Whistling

They look like the old planet jr. wheel hoes from early 1900's. Lots of attachments for them. You can look for a while on there web site.

Eliot Coleman's broadfork. Inspired by him. I'm an almost old hippie.
