The Stirrup Or Oscillating Hoe - The Best Weeding Tool


In a nutshell....

The oscillating hoe is a best selling garden tool, the sharp blade cuts beneath the soil level and sharpens itself as it goes. Available 2 different head sizes. See description tab for more details.

Hoe Head

The Oscillating or Stirrup Hoe (Complete With Handle) is the most sought after new garden tool 

When they see these Oscillating hoes in action every gardener or vegetable grower will want one. The Oscillating Hoe has a razor sharp blade that travels below the soil surface and slices through the weeds where they are most vulnerable - below ground.  This stops or slows them from rejuvenating themselves because they have no foliage exposed to life giving sunlight.

The Oscillating Hoes long handle allows you to reach in amongst vegetable beds without trampling on them. This fantastic garden tool also comes with a removable blade so it can be interchanged if damaged or worn. The blade can easily be re-sharpened with a stone or very fine file (If needs be). The blade also has a double edge so this garden tool can be used in a forward and backwards action.

Choose Your Size:

The Oscillating Hoe comes with heads in 2 different widths.

  • Regular: 13.5cm (5.3in) 
  • Wide: 17.5cm (6.9in)

Please choose your required hoe head size using the 'Hoe Head' Tab above.


Important: This Hoe includes the Ash 1.6m handle.

  • The Oscillating blade cuts weeds on the forward and backward strokes.
  • Cut weeds simply slip over the sharp blade.
  • The Oscillating blade actually sharpens itself as it moves through the soil.
  • Great for established weeds and pleasure to use on regularly hoed ground.
  • Our Oscillating hoes are Swiss made top quality tools and will last you a lifetime.

One of the most important tools you'll ever own, they make a great gift for the gardener also.

Hoe Dimensions:

Handle Length: 1.6m (63in) Long

Head Sizes: Regular - 13.5cm (5.3in), Wide - 17.5cm (6.9in)

I bought my oscillating hoe from Quickcrop a couple of years ago. I love it. It's the most useful piece of equipment in my garden. Clearing weeds is now an enjoyable experience.

I absolutely cannot fault this hoe or the service I've received from this company. Ordered on Weds, delivered by courier on Friday morning. It probably seems a bit pricey compared with normal hoes but it's worth it because it cuts your work by half (at least). It took me minutes to completely weed a very large vegetable patch-a job that would have taken me hours of back-breaking work with a normal hoe (and then it wouldn't have done such a complete job). Highly recommended. I also bought the little hand hoe which is just as good and great for getting into smaller areas between plants that you don't want to damage.

I have had my hoe for about a year now, i have two allotments and as you can imagine at times have loads of weeds and i can honestly say this hoe is the best tool i have ever bought to me it's worth it's weight in gold. It is simple to use, just by pushing and pulling the hoe the weeds are up-rooted even deep rooted weeds. I would definitely recommend this hoe to any gardener there is nothing i don't like about my hoe :-).

Great addition to our professional garden maintenance tool kit. We can 'breeze' through borders & beds with the stirrup hoe, its easy cutting action and long handle make its use comfortable and so effective. Our customers enjoy a weed free garden that looks perfect and we can complete our work in quick time thanks to the stirrup hoe - so impressed we bought another!

A fantastic product. So easy to use it makes weeding actually enjoyable, especially when used in conjunction with the Golden Gark. No more bending and stretching. Does exactly what it says in the video. In addition, it also acts as a shallow rotovator for my raised vegetable bed.

Very pleased on receiving this product to see the length of handle just what I wanted at 6 feet tall and subject to back problems this saves bending. Have had this type of hoe before and a great tool it is

Haven't used it much yet but the blade is super sharp and the delivery was so fast!

I brought an Oscillating Hoe from Quickcrop about three years ago and found it one of the most useful gardening tools I've purchased. Easy to use and spaers are easy to obtain. My neighbour saw it and asked me to get her one as she had heard about them before, so I did. She is delighted with it.One negative is the price. But in the long run it's worth it.

Great tool for getting an area weed free and helping to keep it weed free. What I particularly like about it is that after frequent use your soil will not only be weed free but free of big stones up a dept on two to three inches. This hoe is great for ploughing through the earth and finding stones that you can then remove. Its blade is nicely sharp to cut through the weeds and the handle although longer than most takes all strain off the back. A must have for anybody that has any piece of land larger than a raised bed.

En het scheel geld, want ik doe het nu zelf, ik hoef het niet meer uit te besteden voor geld. ik heb een behoorlijke grote tuin.In Nederland is dit niet zo bekend. Vreemd, want het is super handig.

Hi could you let me know how the blades can be replaced as it appears there are rivets and not screws used? Thanks in advance. Mujeeb
Answered by Niall
on September 23rd, 2020
Hi Mujeeb Yes. You just need to use a chisel to knock off the existing rivets and the blade will pop out. The new blades come with a set of rivets which you need a small rivet pincher to put them on. These are very cheap and can be got in most hardware stores Niall Quickcrop

Asked By Freda Johnston
on July 02nd, 2019
How do you decide what hoe head size is best. Thank you
Answered by Niall
on July 02nd, 2019
Hi Freda To be honest the smaller size is actually much better in my opinion. The larger size is just for open ground hoeing but as a lot of hoeing is done on beds that have plants in them the smaller sized Oscillating hoe tends to be better and for every 10 we sell 9 would be the smaller size Niall Quickcrop

Asked By Emma reeves

The head and handle came separately - do I need to nail or screw through the small eye on the top of the head? Or just pushing the together should be enough? Thanks Emma
Answered by Niall
on March 05th, 2018
Hi Emma. It should have come with a small screw in the pack to screw through the hole in the head and hold the handle in place. If not let me know and i will put one in the post to you. Its a 2 minute job once you have it.

Hi Michael. I use the Oscillating Hoe myself on a very rocky and clay soil and it works a dream. After about 2 years of Hoeing i had to replace the blade due to the amount of rocks in my soil but this was easily done and i am still hoeing away.

Hi Kevin. The oscillating hoe will work very well on any soil type but note that it is for surface clearing of weeds and won't work deep in to the soil. If you want to clear a large heavy clay area the Chillington tools may well be what you are looking for.
