Designed in Germany, this time-tested cultivator has been available for nearly 40 years. Though there are countless imitators, none match the performance of this original.
It has three sets of intersecting tines that penetrate the soil easily as they roll over the surface. With a scissor-like action, the barbed tines break up and separate the soil, aerating it while also uprooting weeds. Each of the three sets of tines is detachable, so you can make a narrow cultivator head for use between plants, or remove the middle set to straddle a row.
Measures 54" long overall. The tines and handle are aluminum; the head is UV-resistant nylon-reinforced plastic. A great tool for reducing the time and effort required to prepare a garden bed; just run it back and forth over the area you want to cultivate, and you're done.
