Pierre ZFP Posted May 9, 2011 Share Posted May 9, 2011 Anybody got one of these?http://eng-uk.fiskars.com/Products/Lawn-care/Weeders/139920-Telescopic-Weed-PullerIf so, are they any good? They are not cheap and are made largely from plastic so I'm wondering if they are up to the job. I have other Fiskars gardening tools and I'm happy with the quality of these but would appreciate first hand views before I splash out on one.I thought I was getting on top of my Giant Hogweed problem after an awful lot of work and nearly eradicating them over the last 2 years - or so I thought.This weekend they were back worse than ever.The final straw is that after covering up and mowing/strimming/digging I'm exhausted and the beggers are still there, worse, despite my precautions I got some sap on my leg which rapidly blistered and is very painful.I'm still reluctant to use chemical methods even though all the advise I can find on the web seem to suggest glycophosphate for control hence one last try before I get some 'Agent Orange' Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
