Customer Reviews of the Hoss Wheel Hoes
"Very pleased with the Hoss single wheel model. Ordered the package with the cultivator tines, oscillating hoe, and plows. I can keep the garden weeded, while my son is busy doing hay. Garden size this summer is about 12 rows, 125 feet long. "
"I received my garden push plow in a timely manner. I purchased the double wheel package, cultivators, 8" oscillating hoe, furrow/hilling plow set. I have only used the hiller for covering potatoes so far. Gardening is so hard on the back, I know this tool will make great difference. Great tool."
"I purchased the 2 wheel combo with the plow and 8" hoe. Used the plow and planter for first time planting corn and potatoes. Finished everything in about an hour, if I had done all this by hand would have taken 4 to 5 hours. Everything worked great and thinking about buying another Hoss Tools wheeled hoe."
"I love this Hoss double wheel hoe! We bought the 2 wheel loaded package with the disc harrow. We can do DAYS worth of weeding in hours with this thing. We grow 2 acres of vegetables for farmer's markets and this little baby is an incredible time saver. I believe I may even have the chance to go fishing this summer."See more Reviews ▶

Wheel hoes have been used for so many generations for one reason: they work great!
When your garden is too big for hand hoeing and too small for a tractor, the Hoss wheel cultivator is the tool to use. It is the easiest way of manually cultivating and weeding long rows of garden plants.
The Planet Jr. Wheel Hoe is back! Good ideas never go away for long....
In the 1910's, 20's, 30's, and 40's the wheel cultivator ruled the gardening world. Every big garden had a wheeled hoe, and the Planet Junior models were king!
But in the 1950's market gardening started to quickly lose ground to industrial farming, while herbicides began replacing manual weeding tools. By the 70's we had almost lost a wealth of small-scale agricultural skills and tools. Fortunately enough young homesteaders and old-timers kept the knowledge alive.
Hoss Tools has duplicated the original Planet Jr push plow so well that the new attachments fit perfectly with the many of the old antique Planet Junior models and also the Glaser wheel hoe - an expensive European version of the Planet Jr.

The Tao of Vegetable Gardening
These days I handle all my weeding of my half-acre home garden with a Hoss Tools wheel hoe and hand tools.....I can grow about about as much food on half an acre weeded with a push plow and hand tools as on an acre spaced so that weeding between rows can be done with a rototiller.....When the weeds are tiny and tender, you can weed with a wheel cultivator with a stirrup hoe attachment by just walking straight down the row about as fast as you would walk normally, pushing the Hoss hoe in front of you. Ideally, you keep your garden weed-free by making such quick, almost effortless passes over it frequently.....
How is your Hoss Wheel Hoe different from other brands?
And they are made in the USA! The old-style garden push plows that just had some cultivator teeth or a plow blade have been replaced with these modern marvels with a wide variety of weeding, plowing, and cultivating attachments.
Exclusive Wheel Hoe Info
Exclusive book excerpt from Professor John R Stilgoe of Harvard
"By the close of the first decade of the new century, a handful of pleasure gardeners largely outside the circle of government-backed researchers had determined that vegetable gardens ought to be redesigned to make the most of the wheeled hoe's efficiency and that it ought to be the center of a larger system. Systematizing vegetable gardening in order to increase efficiency struck no one as new, but the notion of the wheeled hoe - and to a lesser extent, the scuffle hoe - as the generators of a system did. While Allen and Company had long claimed that large-scale truck farmers frequently employed ten or more men on large fields, each pushing a wheeled cultivator, not until 1911 did one innovator study the efficiency of the wheel hoe weeder in the small, family-sized garden..."

"So it is indeed best to manage your garden so that you only have to deal with small weeds. The secret to this has been known to farmers for many years, but rarely used by gardeners. Now that gardeners are kicking the herbicide habit it is time for this weeding secret to be shared."

I occasionally hear from customers who say that it feels awkward to push their Hoss hoe because the handles are too high or too low. The fix is to adjust the handle height. There is quite a range of adjustability by simply loosening the bolts that attach the handles to the frame and angling the handles differently, as shown on page 4 step 7 on these Assembly Instructions.
If that doesn't move the handles enough for your liking, there is one more trick. The angle of the frame itself can also be changed by adjusting the arms that connect the wheel to the frame. Take a look at the starred note (*) in the middle of page 3 of the Assembly Instructions. First note where the slots on the wheel arms are currently (high or low), then loosen the 4 bolts and pivot the wheel cultivator's arms the other direction. If you do not have an assistant to hold the handles while you do this, just temporarily remove the handles.
Keep it sharp...sort of
Weeding attachments like the sweeps or the oscillating hoes sometimes act as cutting tools. But most of the time they are scraping tools that lift the top layer of soil and then dump it off the back edge of the blade. So they need to be sharpened in a special way.
What they sometimes need to cut is the matted roots of grassy weeds, or the stems of bigger weeds they can not uproot. So you want the edges to be just barely sharp enough to tackle these. If they are too sharp, that edge will just quickly wear away in the soil. And if you keep re-sharpening them over and over trying to keep it too sharp, you will soon wear away the whole metal blade.
So the edge should not be sharp enough that you are likely to cut yourself while handling the tools. And please use a file or coarse sharpening stone to maintain the edge. A grinder is likely to overheat the metal, which softens it and lets it dull very quickly.
