5.0 out of 5 stars The best thing you could get for your garden 29 Mar 2009
This digging hoe was a dream come true. I always wanted to bring one from my country after a desperate search in shops, and finally found that Amazon.uk had it. My friends at my local allotment have seen my tool and everybody wants it, now I have to order three more pieces for friends

I wish Amazon could introduce the fork style of this tool because I am sure that those of us who prefer this style would also prefer the same style of fork. I have seen it is available from a company but in sets of 12. Can amazon introduce a this style fork for us please? It will definitely sell!

5.0 out of 5 stars No more back ache with this tool 19 April 2009
Bought this tool for use on my allotment. Looked in all DIY and garden stores for it but only found it on Amazon. Wow is all i can say. It makes digging and moving soil so easy in comparison to a shovel. Excellent also for making trenches for your potatoes. If you are in two minds about buying one, take my advice and get it, you wont be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hidden Gem 10 Mar 2010
By Sforza

Why is this gardening tool so rare to find? I have always found spades and forks hard going but this thing is really easy to use. I quickly chopped off surface weeds, then went over again digging deeper to break up the hard clay soil. I got through the job very quickly, and not tired at all, brilliant result! If you find digging a chore (who doesn't?) seriously consider this tool, its like some kind of super-hoe on steroids!

3.0 out of 5 stars Ideal tool ..BUT 29 May 2010
The Digging hoe is all I had hoped for,prompt delivery and good quality .The only fault with it was the handle was loose in the blade.I tried hammering the handle deeper into the blade but it worked loose.The problem was cured with the fitting of a 50 pence wedge made for the purpose.This should have been fitted by the makers as it is in common use on many other hand tools.
Now the handle is tight digging and "earthing up" of potatoes is a pleasure and much easier than using a spade.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the Money ? 5 April 2010
Is it worth the money? Too right it is. Wanted a tool for breaking into compacted solid heavy clay soil that had been under a cover of polythene and shingle for years. A garden fork could not penetrate it, but a pick-axe could. Saw this tool was recommended for heavy soil on a website somewhere for just this situation. Bought it on impluse from Amazon. Brilliant !!! Give it a swing like pick axe (shoulder height (not over the back of the shoulder !) and it penetrates the solid clay very easily. The long handle gives you plenty of leverage to lift the clod, which can then be broken it into bite sized chunks using the tool with smaller swings. Works a treat. One of the best garden tools I have purchased. Highly recommended.

You carefully choose the shrubs, look after them and they're great for years. But sometimes they do too well, and outgrow their space. For the really good ones I've dug a circular trench around them to save upto a 2 foot radius of roots and root ball.. Once past the top soil the sub soil is heavy going, and with a normal spade it takes more and more effort to get the soil out.
I moved a large Camelia in early Feb. While resting a sore back I thought there must be a better tool for this. I'd never seen or heard the like of this make, but had an idea of what a suitable tool would be like. Eventually found it on the web.
This is the perfect tool for the job.. its an ideal design to cut into the sub-soil / clay and to lift it out. The base is much wider than a normal hoe, getting towards a narrow spade width. It's also known as a trench tool.
Not many suppliers of this. Not available at DIYs, Garden stores, Wickes etc. Got it from Avenue35 (Amazon). Very prompt despatch / delivery, and good prompt reply to an email query.

I have seen these all over the world on telly when farmers are around...and it is often the only tool they have.
Mine came fast, slotted the head on the handle, gave it a tap and it rattled a bit so I did it properly and it was fine with a good hard bang.
It eats ground, I dug out a pond in less than an hour which just starting on with a spade took 3 hours. Bricks and roots were sliced in half and not a nasty jarring I got with a spade.

I think of it as a ground axe..you'd never push an axe into wood, you swing it. Same applies here, but yu also lever the head easily to break what you dig into, with minimum effort.

If I were to race a man with a spade at digging a hole one handed he would be lost...yet I can quite easily do it. I think that says a lot for the power of this tool and how easy it is to use.

I agree about the fork version, I'd like one. I'm so happy I paid the pittance for this awesome tool Very happy to come and say so too. :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Damn good digging tool! 31 Mar 2011
First the negatives:
Handle looks like something picked off the forest floor and given a good polish. Very rustic.
The hoe is just wedged on the end of the handle, which results in it often coming loose. It arrived in that state too. There's probably a good reason why it doesn't have a metal wedge in the end similar to hammers, but I can't think what it could be.
Plus side:
The actual hoe is far bigger than it appears in the illustration and has a nice sharpe blade. My boss swears by his mattock for digging up tough, woody plants/weeds, but this is far lighter and just as effective. A pleasure to use.
