The Valley Oak Wheel Hoe annihilates weeds with ease.

A wheel hoe is ideal for cultivating close to delicate plant rows and working around shrubs, fruit trees, and pathways. It can also make furrows, hill crops, and loosen compacted soil. Otherwise known as a push plow or garden cultivator, the wheel hoe is the Swiss Army Knife of gardening tools. No serious grower should be without one.Wheel Hoe - steel wheel and rubber tire

An economical, ecological, effective and efficient all-round garden/farm cultivator, this wheel hoe is also completely reliable. And it's quiet; there is no gas to buy, no expensive maintenance; it's earthworm friendly, easy to use, easy on the soil, easy on your body, and it's guaranteed. Gas-powered garden tillers can't offer any of that!

We've been perfecting our design for over 23 years.

The Valley Oak Wheel Hoe™ offers many unique features overlooked by our competitors:

  • Includes your choice of blade assembly — We recommend the 8" for all-round versatility.
  • "Quick Change Assembly" — On other hoes you need wrenches to change attachments, with the Valley Oak Wheel Hoe simply pull out one pin, remove your attachment and replace with another. Changing attachments takes less than a minute.
  • Ergonomically designed — Reduces fatigue and back strain.
  • Steel Handles — Will never warp, splinter, crack or break like wood.
  • Tempered spring steel blades — Sharpens quickly, and stays sharp much longer than lesser-quality steel.Our Wheel Hoe at work, GRUB CSA Farm
