We love to find gadgets which are both cool and practical which is why we so thrilled to get our hands on the Fiskars weed puller, aka W52. You’ve probably seen the adverts (which are a little cheesy) of two men in the garden with one showing off his new weed puller and the other begging to have a go – despite the cheesiness it makes it look really cool. But is it any good? We’ve reviewed it in text, photos and video below and welcome your opinions in our comments section too. Enjoy!
Fiskars Weed Puller Design
The first thing that strikes you is the size as it measures just under a meter in length and looks like a mini jaws of life, apart from this tool is used to extract weeds with gusto. It’s made of ultra durable plastic which makes it strong but at the same time extremely light which is important when it comes to stepping on the ample sized foot plate, pulling back on the handle and then ejecting the weed like a shotgun shell.
Packaging and storage
How it works
The photos above don’t really do this garden gadget justice. Here’s a 21 second video we took quickly using an iPhone to show just how easy the Fiskers weed puller is to use. This was taken around ten minutes after getting home and i’m no gardener which just goes to show how easy it is to use.
Is it worth the money?
There aren’t too many garden gadgets which are as useful as this one. It’s very easy to use, robust, eco-friendly compared to weed killer and doesn’t leave a huge hole in your lawn like a spade would. The RRP is £39.99, although you can get your hands on one for a great deal less if you shop around (Amazon have it for a shade under £29) and we’d say that’s a great price for the convenience it brings.
