What Customers say about our Euro Wheel Hoe

"This has been a great help in the garden, worth every penny. "

Ann, in MS   4.5 star rating

It was very easy to place my order, package arrived very fast and the manual plow is working fine at our rural property, which has very sandy soil. It's a very sturdy, well-built item of great materials and was easy to put together. It pulls up garden weeds in that sandy soil with ease. To be very honest, I'm not sure it would do so as easily here at my city home where the soil is very dense, containing considerable roots and limestone bits dispersed throughout, where I would have to have a power tiller. I'm 73 and just don't have the strength I once did in my arms to push the manual plow through tougher soil. But at the location where I planned to use this tool, it is just perfect! Am very pleased to have this item in my garden shed.

Peggy, from TX   5 star rating

"I have ordered several hoes, a broadfork, and a wheel hoe from EasyDigging.com, and without exception all of them are excellent tools. I fully expect to hand these down to my children and grandchildren. They do a great job with garden prep, and my plants have never been happier. I would order again without hesitation."

Handle Adjustments (Up/Down & L/R)

The handles feature two adjustments. The height of the handles can be angled up and down to fit your height. Also they can pivoted left or right (offset) to allow to operate the wheel hoe from the side.

Adjust handle position to match your height:  To adjust the handles for comfort and efficiency, first attach the Stirrup Hoe to the unit. Loosen the 4 short bolts that attach the Handle to the Frame. Pivot the handles up or down until the black grips are hip height (between your bellybutton and groin). Re-tighten the 4 bolts. Try the unit in the garden, and make any final adjustment that makes you arms and wrists more comfortable.

Offset Handle option:  The handles can be pivoted to either side. This allows you to walk and push from the side of the wheel hoe, rather than from directly behind. This is useful for use in low raised beds, and in hoop houses. To make this adjustment, flip the unit upside down, and loosen the two bolts that pass through the hitch bar. Rotate the tall U-shaped channel that the handles bolt to. Re-tighten the two bolts.

Using your Euro Wheel Hoe

How you use this wheel hoe depends on what attachment you hook to it. Just like a tractor is only useful when you attach an implement to it (plow, disc harrow, planter, etc), the wheel hoe frame's purpose is to support and guide that accessory you attach to it. Your attachments are the Cultivator Tines, Stirrup Hoe, and Furrowing Plow.

1: Using the Cultivator Tines

These are also called cultivator teeth. They are used to stir and aerate the top soil. The stirring action can be used to work in amendments, compost, and fertilizer. Stirring also uproots and kills weeds.

Breaking up soil crust is another common task for this attachment. Doing this before a rain or watering lets moisture enter the soil rather than running off. It also makes it easier to weed.

2: Using the Stirrup Hoe

This is also called an Oscillating Hoe. It is used for weeding garden soil. The blade tilts or rocks back and forth to create the best weeding angle in both the forward and backward directions.

Walking steadily forward is the best method. It uses your strong leg muscles more than your arms. And it is fastest way to weed. Only back stroke (pull back on) the unit to catch a weed that you missed.

3: Using the Furrowing Plow

This is also called an Opening Plow. It is used in loose soil to create a furrow (V-shaped channel) for planting seeds, bulbs, and transplants. The depth of the channel is controlled by how deeply you press down on the handles while walking forward.

After the seeds are planted, you can turn the plow around and push it down the channel to close (pull soil back into) the furrow.
