Hoe Pulls Weeds By The Roots
Jerry Hoover couldn't get rid of stubborn noxious weeds using a regular hoe on his ranch near Fallon, Nevada. So, he went to his shop and after making 20 prototypes, created what he calls the Sticker Stalker.
  It's a two-pronged hoe that you slide on the ground until the tapered notch in the center catches a taproot. With a tug, it yanks out the entire root system unlike a conventional hoe that simply cuts it off. By pulling out the root system from the bottom, the seeds are left on the weed; not on the ground for new sprouts. The hoe also has sharpened edges that remove new weed growth.
  "I've never seen anything like it. It's amazing the way it pulls out goatheads, sandburs, cockleburs, and other tough weeds. They don't come back if you get the roots," says Hoover.
  Sells for $20 plus S&H.
