  • WEED N TILL

    Got weeds? Let your drill do the work.

    Weed Spinner is an innovative drill-driven weed removal tool that spins out weeds at the root.

    It's fast and fun to use. There's no kneeling, bending, or getting your hands dirty!

    What is it, exactly?

    • Use Weed Spinner with your cordless electric drill (drill not included)
    • 33-inch-long forged steel shaft
    • The end that goes into your drill features three flat surfaces to stay firmly in the drill's chuck
    • Innovative design features a forged pointed tip to pierce sod, hardscape, and clay soils
    • Works on most any surface where weeds grow (lawns, gardens, sod, hardscape, loose rock, and more)
    • Easy on your back and knees
    • Eco-friendly and chemical-free
    • Aerates and tills
    • Invented and patented by Vern Ader, a retired teacher and gardener

    How does it work?

    • Insert the Weed Spinner shaft into the chuck of your drill.
    • Point the tip into the ground next to the weed's main center stalk, then pull the drill's trigger for a few seconds and push down slightly. A slight angle works best.
    • For safety and a better result, don’t start the drill until the Weed Spinner is properly placed.
    • Your Weed Spinner will usually pull the roots out along with the weed.
    • If your Weed Spinner hits a large rock or large root, it’s possible for the drill to jerk suddenly. If this is a concern, use a drill that has a second side handle for stability.
    • Weeds may become wrapped around the Weed Spinner. If they don't fall off on their own when the drill is raised up, put the drill in reverse and spin for a few seconds to unwind the weeds. With the drill off, they can be removed by hand.
    • The Weed Spinner isn’t recommended for caliche, calcrete, hardpan, or duricrust sedimentary soils. Heavy clay soils may bog the drill.
