The hardened steel head of this tool has multiple uses. You can use the pointed end for planting, digging irrigation trenches and tearing up sod. The 6″ sharpened sides pull dirt up to a plant and remove weeds. The 3-prong rake gathers trash but also works extremely well in hard or rocky soil. It is available on either 54″ or 60″ lengths of our straight-grained 1-1/4″ diameter shaped Ash handle.
