Hooke Crook hoe
« on: April 27, 2018, 12:07:09 PM »
Really wanted to try one but $36.00 shipping will not work for me.
Actually when I got to checkout the bill came to $115.00 not even sure why.

I have a a Hoss push pull that works really well and it only cast me $64.00 to my door

Walker,

It is the length of the box that makes the shipping so expensive. It weighs very little but the box dimensions makes the shipping cost high. If you can get three or four folks in your area to order one at the same time and they all come together in one box it will make the hoe much more affordable.

The Hook Crook hoe was one of my best garden purchases.  I used drip tape and it works goods to weed under the tape.

I buy the bullet almost 4 years ago and bought 1. And I have not regretted it. Sure it does cost more than expected but it also works better than expected.
I also have made a couple hoes and have had good usage from them, but no where near as well as the h&c.

Another great tool is the stand and plant planter. Another 100 dollar plus tax tool. But man you have no idea the time and back aches it saves

I'm going to contact them about just buying the head.
Never know until you ask

Try and see if there's people around you that might want one. The cost of shipping is reduced if you get more than one if I remember correctly.

Talked to Randy this am. Very pleasant conversation about his hoes and the cost of shipping.
Was able to buy just the hoe head minus the cost of the $10.00 handle. With shipping it should
come just under the cost of the complete hoe.
He also said they would look into different shipping methods to possibly be able
to ship cheaper.

I ordered the Honey Bee and looking forward to getting it.

Fillaly an update
Received the Honey Bee hoe head. Great quality to say the least.
Put a handle on her and as everyone has said it works great. First hoe I ever enjoyed using.
I've got $70.00 bucks in it and consider it's the best $70.00 I have spent in a while.

Will order another one. Seems like every time I find something I really like it is no long made
if it needs replaced or somthing happens to it.

Walker,
I have the hook-n-crook but also recently purchased the stirrup hoe through Amazon Prime by true temper for $25.00 with a wooden handle. It also is a very good hoe and I find use for both. I have learned the key to weeding is to get them when the weeds are at the thread stage.

Daniel my neighbor uses one and after using it I ordered one three days ago.
They are a little quicker and work the sides better than the H&C but not as easy to work between some plants.
As they say. Use the right tool for the job.
