Something different this time, I'm afraid it may not be the proper season to make and test one, but it could be usefull to someone for the next spring !
It's something I have invented for pulling out the weeds on my lawn, especially the dandelion (I don't know it you all have dandelion overseas ...)
I start from a tool I purchased, it's like a long gouge, made for pulling out weeds, but with the hand. It had a short handle. So I removed the handle, and I welded a big foot rest, perpendicular to the gouge.
Here it is :
Upside down :
And Then, I bored the end of a shovel handle, added a steel ring to avoid any splitting :
And here is the complete tool :
So you have more strength pushing with the foot than with the hand :
You just need to swing the tool to help the dandelion to be extracted easily with most of its roots !
And I have 2000 m2 of garden ....
