Double-Wheel Hoe Straddles Rows
“It is a great manual tool for anyone with a large garden and for small fruit and vegetable producers,” says Simon Touchette, Dubois Agrinovation.
The 2 wheels allow tools to be used in extreme proximity to seedlings, as close as 1 1/2 in. with Terrateck’s preci-discs attachment. Other tools include a simple market gardening hoe, finger weeders, dual blades that undercut weed roots, bio discs for precision weeding and hilling, a roller for seeding, spring harrows, stirrup weeders, and more.
The hoe can be equipped with an offset mounting arm, as well as with various support arms and tool mounts. It’s 47 in. long and 14 in. high with a tool mount height of 10 in. Overall height and angle adjustments adapt to the user, and the pneumatic tires adapt smoothly to uneven ground.
Dubois is the Canadian distributor for Terrateck and markets in the U.S. via its online store. It is priced at $510 (Canadian). The double-wheel hoe is also marketed by Johnny’s Seeds in the U.S. for $425 (U.S.)
