As we grow older we have more time to enjoy the benefits of gardening. Conversely as boomers and seniors we also develop numerous physical problems that restrict these gardening activities. Back and knee problems are two common ailments that restrict weeding with common gardening tools. Short handle tools require kneeling which is hard on the knees. Although long handled tools reduce the knee problems they also require specific physical motions such as stepping, pushing, pulling, chopping etc. that can be strenuous on the back. Weed Spinner - this NEW drill driven weed removal tool resolves the knee and back problems of traditional weeding tools. Just point the Weedspinner’s tip at the middle of the weed, squeeze the trigger on the drill, and the weed, root and all, are completely eliminated in a single spinning action with no root left to grow back. It’s called the Greener-De-Weeder…environmentally friendly.

The Weed Spinner works with any cordless or electric drill. A standard 3/8” variable speed cordless drill works best. The top speed can vary from 600 to 1400 rpm. A slower rpm works best for large weeds while a higher rpm works better for smaller weeds and debris. For best results, point the cutter head directly down (vertical) into the center of the weed or debris to be removed.
