These weeding attachments go by the names Oscillating hoe, Stirrup hoe, and Hula hoe.

It has a replaceable spring-steel blade that is sharpened on both the front and rear edges. The blade tilts 20 degrees forward and back for optimal weeding on both forward and backward strokes of the wheel hoe. The thick steel frame attaches to the wheel hoe with two bolts.


It is a more aggressive and deeper-cutting weeder than the Sweeps. See the videos below for tips on using this attachment.

 

Customer Reviews of the Oscillating Hoe

"The oscillating blade for my wheel hoe arrived very quickly and works wonderfully. What a pleasure to weed the garden now! My only regret is that I didn't purchase this blade two years ago when I first heard about it. Thank you for your prompt service and reasonable price."

Brenda S, from FL  

"I am using the 6” oscillating attachment to weed. Very pleased so far. A good purchase."

Bob, from IN  

"I bought the Wheel Hoe double wheel hoe cultivator with several attachments as a birthday present for my husband. We love to work in the garden, but never have enough time for the planting and weeding that needs to be done. The oscillating hoes allow me to weed a 60'x60' garden in about 45 minutes and the seeder attachment allows me to plant a row of seeds in a few minutes..."

April, in MI  

"Purchased basic unit with cultivators and an additional 8” stirrup hoe attachment. The whole unit is very well made and everything fits well. The unit works very well. Its not easy to use, it requires some physical effort, but is not hard to use. Compared to an old high-wheel hoe I was using, the Wheel Hoe unit is much easier to use, and works better. All around, money well spent."

I have a stirrup hoe on a long handle. Does this work the same way?

Not really. A hand-held stirrup hoe (mounted on a long stick) is used with a scrubbing action. That action is a rapid back-n-forth scrubbing/scraping action across the soil surface. But with this tool on a wheel hoe, you will work with the most speed and least effort if you can minimize the "back-n-forth" scrubbing. As the videos above show, by selecting the right size tool and keeping the weeds from getting too large, you can do the weeding by just pushing in a steady forward direction. But when the weeds get thick, you will have the ability to "scrub" them with the wheel hoe and destroy them.
