    Sorta Okay

    Heard such good things decided to give it a try. My main concern was videos only showed one type of weed and that is my only downside. I bought a rental home so yard was never taken care of. This tool is not good for crabgrass and find my pick axe better. Wish I only had dandelions to deal with!

    Handy tool!

    We have some big weeds here in the south. This weed puller works but sometimes needs more than one go for the larger ones. It’s super easy and fast to use, the kids can use it and it makes it more fun for them to pull the weeds. It definitely makes things easier on your back.

    She tried this the first time and can’t get it away from her, she loves it. Don’t get the cheaper versions of this. I did a lot of research on this and the materials the cheaper ones were made of just would not cut it.

    Works well, within reason

    Hard soils, thick or dead plants cant be grabbed very well, but if you go after a rain, or a medium amount of watering, it can perform pretty well.Of course if the plant you are trying to pull is too large, it wont grab it and can slip off. But it will loosen it up enough you can shovel or just pull it out by hand, and wont have to fight it as hard.Like any tool, it works well when used correctly.The only thing i’d like to see is a bit longer of a socket for the handle, and a second screw to secure it, just for longevity of the tool.

    Great Tool For Weeds

    I love this weeder! It really pulls up weeds, roots and all. It’s easy to use. You push the claw at the end into the ground, over the weed, then lean the stick down a little before pulling up. The weed comes out as you pull the stick up. It’s so nice not to have to get on my knees to pull weeds!

    I was skeptical

    I’ll be honest, I was a bit skeptical of this. I am in my mid-20s and don’t like gardening, but this is actually pretty fun to use and doesn’t take that long. For some weeds I have to use my hand to manually keep the tines clamped around the plant, but I haven’t had to stick my hands in the dirt yet!

    Grampa’s Weeder – The Original Stand Up Weed Puller Tool with Long HandleI was skeptical when I saw this on the internet but I’m over 70 now and pulling weeds is getting harder as I age. So, I decided to give it a try. I ordered one from Amazon and as a recommendation all I can say is I needed to get a Granpa’s Weeder 20 years ago!This thing is great! The second day I had it, I half filled a trash can with weeds from our backyard. The day after our trash service emptied the can, I was back out in the front yard clearing all the weeds from one section of our front yard. The front yard is two unequal grass areas divided by our sidewalk. The smaller is now weed free and it took just over one hour. Yes we have a lot of weeds.The yard was getting more and more weeds because it was getting so hard for us to dig them out with short hand tools. NOT NOW!!!! BUY ONE. It works exactly as advertised and is a tremendous tool to have and use.

    Works great

    This is very effective at getting weeds out of the ground, including the roots. I still had some low back pain while using it, but that might be because of my body mechanics, not the tool. I would also say to be careful not to use it on a weed where the root is too thick because you could break the handle. This is for your basic weed, not like a mini bush or tree. I really like it and I recommend it to anyone who hates weeding.

    Good Tool for Pulling Weeds

    I can’t say I loved this tool, but I do appreciate the ease with which it pulls weeds. The one knock I have on it is that if your lawn is even slightly muddy, everything sticks to this, and you end up bending over to clean it off anyway. It is a solid four-star tool.

    I’m in love with Grandpa!

    We bought our house in the summer of 2022. The yards probably hadn’t been weeded in 20 years. There were THOUSANDS of dandelions. A neighbor saw me on my knees digging them out and mentioned that there were “weeding sticks.” What? There exists such a wonder?I found Grandpa’s weeder here and bought it.It’s fantastic!All of our yards are now dandelion free. When any pop up again, I just whip out Grandpa and they’re gone in seconds!I bought this in a bundle with a hand tool weeder from the same company. It works great on smaller/more delicate roots. I call that one “Grandma.”

    EXCELLENT

    This thing works very well. If I were designing it I would change 2 things; make the handle 24″ longer & make the handle plastic coated metal. I do expect the bamboo handle to break at some point, then I’ll fashion a metal one. In the meantime – it really does work.

    Super product for certain weeds

    I used this primarily for dandelion type weeds that grow aggressively deep and low to the ground in the lawn. It takes just a little practice to get the maneuvering down but after that it pulls up the weed with 3-4″ of tap root. I found you have to be sure to open the prong type jaws really wide and place them in the center of the weed. Then you step on the jaws so they sink in deeply and SLOWLY pull the handle back until you can feel the root snap. Then just continue to pull back and voila! that tough weed is out of the ground. Going slowly I found was most important because otherwise I just pulled the top part of the weed up. Previously I had to dig these weeds up with a shovel to get them root and all. This tool best for weeds with a long tap root I’ve found.This is a well made tool that has been around for years. I’ve seen them in perfect condition after 20-30 years of use. They are not complicated. I’m so glad they are being made in the same heavy duty fashion.

    Something so simple, yet so effective. I purchased this for mainly my wife to use in her flower garden. It does what they claim it will do. I got it but was unsure how well it would work. It worked great! No batteries, no getting on your knees. Just take a few minutes to read the instructions.

    Handle way too short for someone 5’4″+ Tall

    This product does work with minimal effort to remove weeds. Yes, you’ll have to shake dirt off weeds, this tool grabs a lot of dirt with weeds. If you’re taller than 5’4″, you’ll need to get a 60″+ replacement handle. Otherwise, you’ll be sore from continually bending down. The handle was easy to replace, it is secured with a screw. Just remove screw and twist handle out. If replacing handle, you’ll need a handle with tapered end. I had to replace the handle as you can see in the picture, I’m just shy of 6′ tall. This tool works better than most other weeders and is priced right. I would suggest the seller to sell tool with longer handle as another option, or just sell tool without handle.

    This is a back saver.

    This passed year the weeds had been horrible. If it wasn’t for this, I would have had horrible back aches and knee problems. Easy to use and really durable. Don’t leave it outside, keep it in storage after cleaned and done. Or else the wood will become fragile and break. If it does just get a broom stick and drill it on.

    Weeds be gone!

    My coworker recommended this based on reviews he heard, I initially was hesitant because of the money but I finally caved and I can say everyone is 1000% right, grabs almost all types of weeds (except for super small ones). That’s really the trick to having nice grass – keep up with the weeds. I saw a review saying theirs broke, I just don’t push as hard when it starts to bend a little.

    Appears to get many, if not most weeds under the right conditions.

    I have one of these weeders but my most significant experience with it was watching my next-door neighbor use it to clean his yard from a significant amount of medium-sized weeds. Its effectiveness is largely dependent on whether the ground is hard or reasonably soft, but if it is soft, the weeder gets down where it needs to be and removes the weed completely. Some weeds have very deep root systems so you would really need well-watered ground in order to leverage the weeder for complete removal. In Southern CA where we have dry (and hard) decomposed granite dirt, the weeder is not as effective. The best time to use the weeder here would be in late winter after a good rainstorm passage. I would recommend purchasing this device and just being aware of its limitations.

    good, easy to use weed puller, but when I go to tackle the bigger weeds in our flower beds, I feel like I’m about to snap the handle in two. Get them taken care of while they are small or it may be the last time you use this tool!

    Simple, relatively durable tool.

    I like the durability plus the wood and metal design. No plastic. It works best when the ground is moist. Weeds may not pull out in one go if the ground is dry. Also, every once in a while I need to break mud free of the prongs in order to use it effectively. The mud gets caked on sometimes. The only thing I don’t like is the wooden shaft doesn’t nest inside the metal tool much..but it has been working well. I got the hang of using it and I have pulled hundreds of weeds. No joke. Haven’t broken it yet.

    Grandpa’s Weeder

    This weeder is rugged and does a good job on most weeds. However, I bought this weeder to get rid of dallas grass. This is a tough weed to pull up unless the ground is moist and soft. The deep root system get clogged/wedged in the head an difficult to clear.

    You still need to bend down

    I really like using this weeder because it takes all the pressure/work off my hands. I don’t have to crawl around on the ground to pull up weeds anymore which is great… BUT the weeds do not come out of the tool easily and you have to knock them out with your hands. I need to either bring the end up or bend down to empty the tool. Not a huge issue for me, but it could be annoying.

    Made weeding kind of fun!

    Saw this on a social media post. There’s several variants by other manufacturers, but I bought the original.Our new house doesn’t have a well established lawn. So we get these small prickly weeds that have woody stem with a very deep tap root. This weeder pops them out nicely! So much easier than trying to pull them by hand. It was actually kind of fun hunting down weeds in the yard and yanking them out with this tool!As a tall human I wish the handle was slightly longer, but that’s a MINOR issue.

    Best for large sized weed

    It works, but it will take a chunk of your grass if you just want to use it on average sized weeds. It is best for large mature weeds that is in the dirt.

    Great old fashion tool

    I like it for short weeds such as dandelions but is not all the effective for taller weeds. For taller weeds you’ll need to cut them down to an inch or so from the ground with some other tool , then you can grab them and pull them out with the roots using this weeding tool.

    Works Well

    Gets the jobs done for pulling out weeds that don’t come out easily by hand. It’ll break 1/2″ roots too if you’re pulling on something more substantial. Can be a little tedious process picking the dirt out of the crimps between pulls, but you will have a longer lasting effect of the weed being gone with how deep it gets.

    Love this tool. I’ve struggled with some weeds that have a long tap root, and often ended up falling on my butt when they finally did come out, if ever. Others I’ve just cut off at ground level because they were too hard on my back trying to pull them out. Pulled out the 5 in the picture with 12″+ tap roots just now – less than 5 minutes, and no struggles.

    Sturdy and Gets The Job Done

    Bought this to dig up pesky thistle that’s popping up everywhere following the drought here in South Central Texas. Bamboo handle feels quite sturdy, has a good length for my 6’6” husband, and we like the cast iron tool head. Does a good job, but the tines themselves could allow for a larger root system…since the thistle roots we’re dealing with are early stage it’s getting the job done, so we’re very happy with it

    Well-made, cleverly-designed, simple and effective weeder!

    My lawn was devastated by drought in 2022, and the weeds moved in for 2023. This fall, I wanted to yank a lot of the crab grass and dandelions, etc. and try to allow the grass to fight back to dominance. I don’t use a lot of lawn chemicals over concern for the immediate and general environment, and I have time to do weeding– I just needed an effective tool, and one that wouldn’t stress my back. This thing is a well-made, cleverly-designed, simple and effective weeder! I had to get the knack for grabbing different weeds– push it down not so deep for crab grass, deeper for dandelions. With the dandelions, I’m sometimes getting a broken root, which I bet means they’ll regrow, but sometimes I get an entire root that looks like a big carrot! A tool that is worth buying.

    I’ll admit that some of my backyard dandelions are near knee-high

    I engage in NO-mow-May and enjoy watching the wild violets, wild strawberries, white clover and other interesting plants stretch their roots and slowly replace the Bermuda grass. Unfortunately, dandelions enjoy the same conditions stimulating those wild plants. I generally avoid having my lawn guy mow at all in the slowly expanding wild section and bribe him to weed-whack the tall tops instead. That improves the appearance but does nothing to those dandelions and I’m really determined to avoid herbicide wherever and whenever I can. Enter Grampa’s Weeder which works as described, BUT my ground is incredibly hard with minimal rain so plunging the Weeder into the ground is tough and eventually would risk the wood shaft of the tool. Here’s my tip: water the dandelion area first, generally a section at a time, then plunge to your heart’s desire. It’s a great tool and actually fun to use.

    This thing is GOLD!!! It’s so easy to use. We first seen it on TikTok shop and I bought it for half off, my mom liked it so much that we ended up paying full price on Amazon for her to have one for her birthday! The only thing I wish this had differently was that I wish there was a release of the weed handle or something (just because I mainly bought it to get the sticker bushes out of our yard) but I’m tellin ya, everyone needs one of these!!

    Does the job well but……

    Great tool. Does the job really well except that the weed gets stuck in the bottom “fork” and becomes difficult to remove. You either have to tap it hard on something or step on the weed itself. Then of course you are bending over to pick up the weed defeating the purpose of the tool!

    Works as advertised.

    PROS:* Works precisely as advertised.* What more could you ask? The tongs could be a little longer for deeper root systems. But they work fine for weeds about a foot tall. Any larger and their roots may not all come out.CONS:* For some, the ball of dirt that comes with the roots might seem unsightly/ excessive. Just look at it as aeration, they fill in on their own quite easily.

    Somehow makes weed pulling fun

    Caveat – our yard is primarily weeds. We have been in a drought for so long that we have not bothered to plant grass. And until we can afford to do some work on our house that would be easier without fancy landscaping, we’re living with it. Luckily, most of the weeds are grassy-ish and maintained by mowing. But there are three weeds I cannot stand, including one that lies low to the ground and gets little stickers all over it (my chihuahua often comes hopping over to me with one stuck to her paw), one that starts looking like a dandelion but grows into a tall, scraggly weird looking plant, and foxtails. This tool works GREAT on the weeds that have a definite tap root like the first two I described. It does not work so well on the foxtails. It also doesn’t work well on weeds that are growing really close to concrete. But oh boy, I had fun pulling out the weeds I could grab! We still have weeds, but now that it’s dry again, they are dying off until next spring. This tool definitely helped reduce the number of them in our yard. It does not feel totally sturdy so if you have hard clay soil like we do, use it before the soil totally dries out.

    It’s a One-Minded Tool

    This tools seems to be a one-minded tool, meaning it’s great for pulling weeds as long as the stem is of a certain diameter. Grampa’s Weeder has troubles with weeds any bigger or smaller. I have 4-feet tall dandelion weeds in my yard, and this tool isn’t the most ideal for removing them. I, too, wish they designed a way to remove weeds that cannot be grasped with the 4 prones. For instance, this tool fails spectacularly with moss-like weeds. In this case, the tool could have a few extra small prongs so that I can like twirl it to trap the strands of moss and twist like spaghetti. This would help me to pull to them them out of the ground. Having some extra prongs would turn this into a makeshift rake so that I can just use it to transfer my weed pile into my compost bin. If you have sapling weeds, forget it. This tools fails at getting those.The tool does feel sturdy and well-built. The wooden handle feels good and solid in your hands, like you can use it to fend off a horde of zombies (okay, not really…it feels more like a broom handle). The metal prones feel solid, too. Do be careful with getting at the bigger weeds with this tool. As mentioned, it’s not really designed for them and I have had to back off on the tool when the wooden handle started flexing at a crazy angle.

    Weeds No more

    Came assembled as one unit and I am eager to test it but haven’t gotten the chance yet with the weather not being cooperative and constantly working. I got it for the main purpose of removing the crab weeds from my drive way soft rock when I run out of weed killer.

    Easily one of the most satisying things I’ve ever bought

    This tool is super easy to use and its almost fun to pull up the weeds. I had a lot of tricky spikey ones that were hard to pull. This is infinitely easier to use and gets the entire weed, where I used to break it off. Highly recommend this item.

    Awesome product

    Used this to dig up dandelions that are already starting to bloom. I couldn’t believe how easy this was to use. It mostly took only one try to get those pesky weeds out. So much easier than using a shovel and much easier on my back too! It’s one of the best purchases I’ve made.

    I like it, but it’s not as great as advertised

    It’s been fun weeding with this (no bending down!) and I’ve had some success getting dandelions and other weeds out of my lawn and mulch, but I do have two complaints.1) Most of the time, it pulls up so much dirt with the plant that it’s not able to fully close on the plant and rips the roots. Also I have to manually scrape out the dirt after every weed extraction. It gets old and messy. I will say, though, the larger the weed, the better this performs.2) I’ve only been using this tool sparingly for a month, and I can already tell the wood handle will not last more than a few years. It has flexed and bent when removing even tiny weeds, but I think that’s due to the issue stated above—more often than not, it’s grabbing mostly dirt, and that puts a lot of strain on the lever when pulling the weed out.Despite these small issues, I’ve recommended it to several people. In my experience it works better on bigger weeds—weeds where the root system is big enough to fill the tool’s entire mouth.

    Well-made, cleverly-designed, simple and effective weeder!

    My lawn was devastated by drought in 2022, and the weeds moved in for 2023. This fall, I wanted to yank a lot of the crab grass and dandelions, etc. and try to allow the grass to fight back to dominance. I don’t use a lot of lawn chemicals over concern for the immediate and general environment, and I have time to do weeding– I just needed an effective tool, and one that wouldn’t stress my back. This thing is a well-made, cleverly-designed, simple and effective weeder! I had to get the knack for grabbing different weeds– push it down not so deep for crab grass, deeper for dandelions. With the dandelions, I’m sometimes getting a broken root, which I bet means they’ll regrow, but sometimes I get an entire root that looks like a big carrot! A tool that is worth buying.

    Great Weeder, but I thought this was MADE in the USA, NO —> MADE IN CHINA!!

    This tool does work gerat. It was more expensive than I would have liked, and I bought it thinking I was paying the little extra to support a USA product.I was VERY disappointed to find out it was not, I almost returned it. Nocked a star off for that, as I feel the marketing implies it’s a USA Product. That could be my mistake (Country of origin not listed on Amazon Details). Knocked a star of it for that, as I think it is deceptive, and there are cheaper clones out there.I do with the handle was a bit longer, it does seem a bit short, but there are pros and cons to that. And extendable handle (fiberglass) like the tools Ace Hardware sells would be a better version.

    0 to 100 weeds an hour in no time flat

    My father’s new place was more weeds than lawn. My father’s usual method of spraying was slow to work when it worked at all (neighbor had decorative gardens, limiting what could be used); mowing them down left woody stalks and stems sticking up all over the place. I ordered Grampa’s Weeder because the pictures looked like it was all metal other than the handle, while the pictures for most competitors looked like they had some plastic parts. Had heavy-use items like a French fry cutter and a kitchen slicer in the past with plastic parts, and they usually don’t last long. I needed something that might clear the whole property without breaking.When I did get it, the aesthetic design was underwhelming, though I appreciated that it only had one moving part to minimize points of failure. But when I started using it within the hour … wow. I almost couldn’t stop using it — there’s something deeply satisfying about looking around and seeing the immediate results of your work as you work. It was doing the job well even without soaking the ground. I think I managed 300-400 weeds within 3 hours. I might’ve gotten more, but I learned I had to go slow to keep from breaking the tap roots. Too bad that’s not even half the weeds on the property….This lawn’s soil hardness is probably average, though not much softer; I’ve known other places where you could barely use a sharpened shovel, much less a tool like this. I’m somewhat obese and very out of shape, but I was able to keep going for three hours without needing a break (though my arm had a mild ache for a couple days afterwards from overusing it).Sometimes the tap root would break off, but I’ve had that problem in the past with hand tools and bare hands anyway. This is much easier and faster than doing it by hand. It went well for my first time using it, especially after I learned to slow down. It worked better than I expected on the few weeds without tap roots I went after, as long as you can get the center of the clump of roots.Divots after getting tap roots are noticeably bigger than when using hand tools or bare hands, though part of that may have been from the ground not being presoaked. If there were less than a couple dozen weeds (and I actually cared about divots), I might have gone after the weeds by hand. For weeds without tap roots, bigger divots are probably better anyway, though I’m not an expert and thus don’t know that for sure.A nice bonus is the basic instructions on the handle itself. A minor quibble is that the lines are too thick for the level of detail in the illustrations, making it slightly difficult to tell what the illustrations actually are. Simplifying the illustrations may be more practical than using thinner lines.TL;DR: I’m very happy with it, and the few minor issues I noticed were ones I didn’t have any actual problems with.

    This was just what I was looking for! Im trying to keep the use of pesticides to a minimum, and this was my choice after reading all the reviews. The only reason this product does not get 5 stars is because of the difficulty that I have in clearing the weed/dirt from the tool. Otherwise- great product.

    A Fun and Useful Tool

    I had to practice a bit to get the hang of this tool, but once I did, I noted it is really good with weeds that have a deeper root. Also ground clover can be removed if you can correctly find the center of the plant. If not, at least you will find where the main root is not. I do think it is a bit too grabby for our northeastern dandelions as they are rather shallow and therefore the tool gouges extra soil. I use a forked hand tool for those. However, it was really worth it, and I enjoy finding the center of the plant and popping it out of the ground. Satisfyingly fun.

    Great! Just one little thing…

    Tried this the second it was delivered. Oh my gosh it worked shockingly well on crabgrass and other random zone 7 weeds. Like butter.My only wish? That the “grabber” part would stay pinched shut when I pull the weed up. The weeds, while easily pulling out, are falling to the ground causing me to have to bend over to pick them up. Kind of negates the point of this tool.

    100% Honest Review

    I give this product 4 stars not 5 because it does work pretty good on the bigger weeds, but on the small weeds not so good, the smaller weeds seem to slip throw the pincers, so when that happens I have to bend over to pluck out the smaller ones and I use the wood pole to make bending over easier or else I’d give it 3.5 stars. Hope this helps because I bought this based on all the 5 star reviews, like it was an amazing tool. Now it is an excellent tool for the big weeds but sucks for the smaller ones.

    Huge help!

    Living in a semi rural area it is easy for weeds and such to pop up in the yard. Dandelions can take over in a heartbeat. This spring I used it a couple days for a total of maybe 3 hours and got every bit of dandelion, crabgrass and any other random weed out of the yard. It is easy, requires relatively little force and does a great job of getting the weed AND the root. As an out of shape Middle Ager, this really saved my knees and back, and left my yard and flower bed looking gorgeous. Makes me really enjoy the work and take pride in my yard.

    Practical tool for getting rid of weeds

    Took me a while to get the hang of it, but with a bit a practice it is starting to come to life. Only reason for the 4 star rating is that it is not useful for some weeds. It works great with crab grass and dandylions, but some of the more grassy weeds it is a bit challenging to use. But all in all, I’m glad I have it in my weed killing arsenal.

    I wasn’t able to use it because I only weigh 115 pounds and the ground in still too hard (drought state) to penetrate.

    Great tool for quick and easy weeding!

    Dandelions were taking over my yard but I did not want to use any herbicides or chemicals in my organic garden. I searched for an alternative and tested out the grampa. It sounded too good to be true but it actually works as advertised!The grampa allowed me to pull up dandelions and some other varieties of weeds quickly and easily without straining my back and knees in the process. The grampa grabs onto weeds that have been pulled so it’s easy to deposit them into a bag or tub without ever having to bend down or get my hands dirty.I enjoy patrolling for weeds with my grampa now. It is actually kind of fun which is usually not the case for me with weeding! It took me a few tries to get the feel for it but after that it was really easy and I had a high success rate, as you can see from the photo of a landscaping bag I filled with dandelions using the grampa. It pulls up almost all weeds and gets the roots effectively too.I loved it so much i sent another grampa to my mother. She is in her seventies and likes using it as much as I do. I would definitely recommend this as a gift for the gardener in your life!

    Great and easy to use

    I enjoyed this product and it made pulling dandelions so much easier. It worked great on large weeds, didn’t work as well on smaller weeds. I used it after a rain so the ground was soft which may have helped. It’s definitely better than bending over to pull them.

    It works well for most weeds.

    I like the lightweight of this tool, and the ability to do the job as advertised, most of the time. By that I mean it works great in most soil but when the soil is dry and compacted the tool cannot pull up plants with long tap roots. And we have many many thistles with taproots 12″ long and longer. The tool seems to be specific for plants with taproots vs long, deep, tender, slender roots, as in field bind weed. A most noxious beast, is the field bindweed. For lawns it would be an ideal dandelion puller. It’s worth the price paid, IMO, even if it isn’t a universal weed puller.

    Soil conditions matter

    My wife and daughter like this a lot, and use it all the time. I on the other hand am not a fan.1. If the soil conditions are not right, it’s difficult to use effectively. Can’t be too dry or too wet. If the soil IS right this works really well.2. It takes out a lot of dirt each time you use it, so you will have lots of 1 inch holes in your yard. I do not like this. My wife doesn’t care because the weeds are gone.3. We find the removing the weed from the grabber part is a pain and requires a screw driver of scrapper. Not a huge deal, just an extra step before pulling the next weed.4. It does save your back. No more bending.5. Easy for kids to use. Our 8 yr old loves using this to pull weeds. So that is a huge Plus.

    Good tool

    I have a large lawn that has been taken over by broad-leaf weeds. I was looking at similar tools but the reviews didn’t look promising. Then I saw this one. It was more expensive, but the reviews were much better so I took a chance. So far, so good. I have removed seven buckets full of weeds and it is working well. Some people have complained about the handle being too short. I’m six feet four inches tall and the handle could be a bit longer but really isn’t a problem. I can fill a bucket in about ten to fifteen minutes and I figure that, starting in late October, if I remove a bucket or two each day, I will be done by spring. Now, what to do about the clover and moss?

    It’s awesome, get it!

    Doesn’t work on larger weeds like burdock but it’s great for smaller, tough ones like plantain, dandelion, and pesky clumps of grass. Saves my back. 10/10 recommend. You have to sink it into the center of the weed in order for it to be able to grab onto it. Pro tips: Don’t leave it out in the rain. Take care of it, don’t push it too hard if something is too big for it to handle, and it will last a long time!

    Best weeder I’ve ever used

    Allow me to caveat my headline by saying I haven’t used every weeder on the market, but of the ones I have used, Grampa’s Weeder is the best. It’s great not having to bend over and attempt to yank a weed by hand, which usually results in the roots staying behind. Even using hand weeders isn’t good enough. Grampa’s Weeder uses a claw that grips the weed tight to pull out pretty much everything; it’s default position is closed, too, making it more effective.Unavoidable Facts:* You’re basically digging a small hole around every weed to remove it so pulling dirt out and leaving holes behind is unavoidable, but preferable to a weed, at least in my opinion* Stuff gets stuck in the claw tines: especially if you’re working in mulch or dry soil, you’ll probably have to push everything off the claw to get it off* Because you’re picking up dirt with the weed, your bucket can get heavy in a hurry so plan accordingly if you have trouble liftingPros:* Stand and weed. No more bending over!* Grab most if not all of the weed so its roots aren’t left behind* Light! It’s not very tiring to use* Works in most soil types, but dry soil can be hard to work in* Foot piece is forked and can be used as a weeder as well.Cons:* Doesn’t work on all weeds, but that’s more the fault of the weed. I had the hardest time with thin weeds like errant baby maple trees* Have to be pretty on-center for it to work best, which can be hard with weeds like crab grass* Tedious: Grampa’s Weeder by necessity only pulls one weed at a time so if you have a lot of weeds in a small area, it’ll get tedious fast, but it’s worth it* Mulch can get jammed in the tinesAll this said, I still stand by my 5-star review. I’d say my success rate in pulling out an entire weed in one go was 90% with Grampa’s Weeder, compared with closer to 50% or less by hand or with a small weeding tool. I think short of having a robot that can do this task for you, you won’t find a better option for removing single weeds than Grampa’s Weeder!

    Good tool, Great Company

    This tool is for pulling weeds and it does a decent job on some roots while not as good on others which is why I rate this tool as good. It works better on plants with a single root that is not very thick and not very deep. It pulls these roots out easily. The softer the ground is the better and pulling weeds after rain is a good time to pull weeds. It does not work as well on plants with several roots as it gets some of them but not all of them, which was a letdown.The reason I rate the company as great is that this tool has a lifetime warranty on it which I cannot recall if that is mentioned in Amazon’s description. While trying to pull a single root weed that was tough, the tool broke on me at the puller to handle connection. The handle is bamboo and that tough root made it snap. I checked if I could get another one from Amazon, but they said no returns after 30 days which I was passed by a few days. Not knowing at that time that the tool has a lifetime warranty I bought another one from Amazon. The next day I checked out the company site. Grampa’s Gardenware Co. in Portland, OR where I found out the tool has a warranty. They say if the tool breaks, take a picture of it & explain what happened in an email. They don’t want the broken one back. Sure enough they accepted it & in a couple of days or so they sent me a new tool. And I got the one I re-ordered from Amazon, so I now have a backup.My advice with using the tool is to not force it when you feel resistance with a tough root otherwise it may break on you like it did to me. If it does break go to Grampa’s website & they will take care of you properly without hassle like a good company should with their products. Happy gardening everybody.

    Addicting and Satisfying!!

    I went to town on my yard today!! I usually spray for dandelions multiple times throughout the summer. I’m hoping this helps to reduce chemical usage in my yard. Once I got started I couldn’t stop. The roots on some of these weeds was like WOAH. The only issue I had with it was the release of the weed. In dry spots, weeds would just fall to the ground resulting in a lot of bending. With the moist soil, the weeds would stick. I think I got my routine down now, and it’s fine. It just took me a bit to get in a rhythm. 🙂

    Grampa’s Weeder – The Original Stand Up Weed Puller Tool with Long HandleI was skeptical when I saw this on the internet but I’m over 70 now and pulling weeds is getting harder as I age. So, I decided to give it a try. I ordered one from Amazon and as a recommendation all I can say is I needed to get a Granpa’s Weeder 20 years ago!This thing is great! The second day I had it, I half filled a trash can with weeds from our backyard. The day after our trash service emptied the can, I was back out in the front yard clearing all the weeds from one section of our front yard. The front yard is two unequal grass areas divided by our sidewalk. The smaller is now weed free and it took just over one hour. Yes we have a lot of weeds.The yard was getting more and more weeds because it was getting so hard for us to dig them out with short hand tools. NOT NOW!!!! BUY ONE. It works exactly as advertised and is a tremendous tool to have and use.

    Good tool with some downsides.

    Over all look is sturdy but the handle, as written by others, is weak. The bamboo is flexible at the base where it attaches to the metal. Adding a metal shaft 6 or more inches through the center of the handle would make this product a lifetime tool. The bamboo is weaker than the weeds you may be trying to pull, so use caution and presoak your areas to be weeded. Secondly, there is concern about holes left by the weed removal and ejection of the weed itself. It is so simple, pull the weed up as directed and then return the weed to the hole. step of the side of the weed and it easily pulls from the tool. Tap the top of the weed a few times and the dirt comes off. Next use the forked end of the tool to pull the weed away from the hole and you have a filled hole and a cleanly removed weed. Takes 5 minutes of practice but you will have a pile of weeds in no time… Can be addicting!

    Crabgrass, meet your nemesis

    This is a great tool for anyone who would rather not weed on hands-and-knees–especially for grass/crabgrass that invades your flowerbeds.Pulling out crabgrass was something I had been leaving to my husband, because I just couldn’t remove it by hand or with small tools. (I’m over 65, with the usual aches and pains, and wrist surgery earlier this year.)But then I got Grampa’s Weeder. (Insert evil laughter here!) This thing is PERFECT for uprooting crabgrass (and turf grass that rudely intrudes where it’s not wanted.) Evicting the crabgrass was actually fun!One drawback: I haven’t had the best of luck using the tool to pull up spurge or ivy, because you have to get the tool centered just so to get at these tiny roots. It’s been quicker to pull those weeds by hand. But if my “removal efficiency” changes with practice, I’ll be back to edit this review, and to add a fifth star!

    Super product for certain weeds

    I used this primarily for dandelion type weeds that grow aggressively deep and low to the ground in the lawn. It takes just a little practice to get the maneuvering down but after that it pulls up the weed with 3-4″ of tap root. I found you have to be sure to open the prong type jaws really wide and place them in the center of the weed. Then you step on the jaws so they sink in deeply and SLOWLY pull the handle back until you can feel the root snap. Then just continue to pull back and voila! that tough weed is out of the ground. Going slowly I found was most important because otherwise I just pulled the top part of the weed up. Previously I had to dig these weeds up with a shovel to get them root and all. This tool best for weeds with a long tap root I’ve found.This is a well made tool that has been around for years. I’ve seen them in perfect condition after 20-30 years of use. They are not complicated. I’m so glad they are being made in the same heavy duty fashion.

    Not as easy as it looks 👀

    In a moment of desperation, I looked for a stand-up weeder. I compared all the options, setting on this one…a simple design that is sturdily built. I watched the accompanying videos with anticipation of having a weed-free lawn, in minutes! It came right away, and I opened the box and extricated my new life changing device. 🤗. I set about finding the nearest offending dandelion, thinking I was about to get some vengeance. I took aim, stepped on the little bar, rocked it to the side, and….,pulled out a chunk of dirt!—totally missing the intended target 🤭. Not to be fooled so fast, I tried again, and yet again! Nothing! I guess I’ll have to practice, who knew??! 🤔

    Nice

    It saves you from having to pull weeds with your hands. Downside is they leave a pretty big whole where the weed was. If the roots are deep you will end up snapping the roots in half and the weed will eventually regrow.That being said it is a solid tool that will get most of your weeds pull with little effort.

    Helpful but difficult in hard clay

    Really nice idea and handy, however we have clay soil and if it isn’t somewhat dry it’s near impossible to use effectively.

    Great if you are short

    This is a sturdy tool, and it works. However, if you are over five feet tall, it’s too short. You have to bend over every time you use it, which makes it hard on your back. They should give you a handle at least a foot longer, and there would be no back strain. It would be well worth paying a few dollars more.

    Works good.

    You have to pick out the weeds from the fork. Your aim has to be good to get the dandelion root. Leaves a 1”x1” extraction hole.

    Good for certain types of weeds

    I wanted to love this since I hate pulling weeds. It works great for some types of weeds like dandelions with a big tap root. For other types, it is not as good. Also, if the soil is moist the root/dirt clod gets stuck and has to be manually extracted.

    It’s probably me

    I’m a 78 yo, 4’11” woman who’s a bit clumsy – I finally figured out how it works, but it wasn’t as easy for me as portrayed. I still needed to bend over to pick up the extracted weeds, so I might as well bend over to pull them. I will say that it definitely pulls the full dandelion roots out. I just need more practice. But now — it’s too dang hot! 🙂

    What it does, it does really well. What it doesn’t do is yours to judge.

    I was shocked at how well this thing pulls up weeds like dandelions, and really gets the whole root stem out of the ground. My only issue, and the reason I didn’t rate it 5 stars is that you have to manually remove the weeds from the claw end, because the claw will not let them go to drop in a garden pail or green waste type bin. If you have bad wrists, it’s a bit on the heavy side for all that manual removal.

    Good tool for dandelions

    Weeds with fragile roots can be removed with this design. I like it.

    Works great, but tines should be longer

    It’s just too bad that the tines aren’t a little longer. It pulls the dandelion root out just like it describes, but not the entire thing. It breaks right where the tines end. Hopefully enough to kill the weed anyway? We’ll see I guess.

    Very sturdy. Good quality

    Impressed with quality of this unit. Strong, heavy metal prong. smooth wood pole. No fear of splinters or breaking. Takes some practice extracting weeds in dirt and rocky areas.

    Pulls nearby plants too.

    It’s well made, and works well at pulling one off things that are floating around on their own…but if the weeds are near plants you want to keep (aren’t they always) this is liable to pull or hurt those plants too.I thought practice would solve this but it did not.Inherently I use it less than expected

    Works!

    It took a try or two to get the hang of it. But it works as describedPros I can stand up and pull weeds. It does work as described.Cons even though it pulls the weeds sometimes it drops the weed before I get it to the garbage can next to me so I still need to bend down to pick it up.Amazon needs to get a grip on shipping boxes. I received this in a box that was 4x the size of the item. Such a waste

    easy and fun!

    who knew picking weeds could be fun and enjoyable? not me. Love this thing, my neighbor was jealous and got one for himself too. Best on crab grass but not so much other weeds that are bigger or too small

    Works on damp soil and larger weeds

    Saves bending over. Welded small metal plate between the two grasping forks. This allows for better grip and prevents weed from slipping through the fork.

    It works.

    Start early in the season on crabgrass or you’ll be overwhelmed. This thing does what it says it does. Keep a bag of topsoil around to fill the holes.

    Great garden tool

    I ordered his tool last fall and used it to pull up thistle in our “natural” yard in Nebraska. It worked great on the thistle and dandelions! So I ordered 2 more for Christmas gifts for my children in Wisconsin! Great product!

    Love This!

    Wow! What a great product! I’ve been having issues with different kinds of spraying or seed fertilizer/ chemicals to try and remove the weeds from my yard. But then I heard about this product and I was like why not I’ll give it a try and not does it work! Super easy to use may take some time if you have a lot of weeds in your yard but it can be done pulls the weed right down to its root and rips it out of the ground. No big mess and don’t have to worry about harmful chemicals hurting pets or small children in your yard.

    Great for crab grass if that’s what you’ve got…

    If you have a crabgrass problem like we do, this thing does work. And it’s easy to pull out the masses compared to just using your hands. I have tried it on some other weeds, and it doesn’t work as well. It works so well with crabgrass because it has a center mass to grab onto. So, if that’s what you’ve got, I recommend this product!!

    A Valiant Life

    Grandpa Weeder lived a valiant life fighting the war for several a seasons against the brutal onslaught of South American dallisgrass. Unfortunately Grandpa finally went down in the Great Texas drought of 2023. Even a regularly watered yard didn’t help Grandpa keep his head. RIP Grandpa Weeder.

    Works as Described

    Good for getting weeds by the roots out of level ground. Had an area covered in weeds that was a bit harder to clear with the weeder due to having to angle it different ways to get the lever on the ground. As other reviewers mention the weeder is a bit short so I still ended up having to bend my back/knees a bit which didn’t help. However, it does work as described so I gave it four stars. But I’m going to see if I can get a new stick for it more suited to my height.

    Works So Good

    This made pulling weeds a lot easier. Small weeds were difficult to grab onto and big ones with long roots really put it to the test. So some I ended up having to dig out.

    Great when soil is dry

    This works perfectly — except when soil is wet. Then it clumps up and you need to stop after every weed to clean out the fork.

    Pulling weeds without bending over

    For bigger weeds, the clamp doesn’t grab the entire weed. But it does pick up, root and all, a smaller weed. And it still saved me from bending over.

    Thanks Grandpa!

    Was looking for a weed puller and came across this one. After reading and watching reviews decided to give it a try. I will say that this was fairly easy to use. You must place directly over the center of the weed and get as deep as you can for it to be effective. I live in Az and have rocky terrain, so sometimes this was useless due to rocks below. But, all in all it did save my back for most of the area I used it on. I think it was money well spent and only time will tell if the wooden handle holds up over time. Thanks Gramps!
