This is really cool:
The blade on this wheel hoe doesn’t have the ability to oscillate, which makes it less efficient – but you can’t beat the guy on ingenuity!
Not to mention frugality. Wheel hoes are expensive.
I bought three vintage Planet Jr. wheel hoes off ebay and that wasn’t cheap. The best morden wheel hoe maker is probably Hoss, and they copy the Planet Jr. design. In fact, their implements will fit on a Planet Jr., which reminds me… I’ve been eyeing their disc harrow.
Though the three-prong cultivator tool on my Planet Jr. is pretty impressive.
