The steel-wheeled hoes were very popular during the first half of this century, and they are being produced once again. The Hoss steel-wheel hoe is a replica of the Planet Jr. No. 17 hoe from the early 1900’s. Both typles are significantly less expensive than the pneumatic-wheeled cousins and, if there is any difference between the two, it is hard to pick-out. The model manufactured by Hoss is available with one or two wheels and has various attachments for weed control including the popular stirrup hoe. Other cultivation equipment includes planters, hillers and sweeps.
Note: The Earthway high-wheel hoe is not very sturdy. If cost is more important quality, it may be a better purchase.
