About Oscillation Stirrup Hoes
Oscillation stirrup hoes are one of the best tools available for mechanical weed control. One of the major advantages of oscillating stirrup hoes is that they can be used for long periods of hoeing with minimal fatigue. This is because their razor sharp blades cut through weeds with minimal effort, they are light weight and the can be used in an upright “thumbs up” stance (as recommended by Eliot Coleman). The hoe can be used in a forward and backward motion which rids the blade of any weeds which have built up, thereby maintaining the hoes efficiency. The oscillating action ensures the blade is at the optimum angle to the soil in both the forward and backward motion.
Note - The oscillating stirrup hoes are sold as the head only. They will fit most standard rake handles with a tapered end. We have found that the Australian made Krugers brand handles work well.
