The Cordless Ryobi Power Tool That’ll Leave Your Garden Looking Better Than Ever

0 8

Ryobi says that its battery-powered garden hoe is the first of its kind, and our research verified this claim. This tool is available at Home Depot for about $199 with a battery and charger included. Its design is similar to other cordless outdoor power tools in the Ryobi family, like string trimmers, as it has a battery connector at the top and a control handle near the front and toward the top, giving you firm control with a nice weight balance.

The open-design stirrup blade has a rectangular shape with a few teeth on the base. The blade is 6.5 inches wide and 3.5 inches tall. To operate the hoe, flip the power switch to the on position to start the oscillation of the stirrup blade. Do not aim the blade deep into the soil, as it works best for cuts just under the top of the soil. Move slowly backward along the area where you want to chop down weeds. You don’t need to force the blade downward, as the oscillating motion and your slow movement backward will allow the blade to do the work, chopping down the unwanted plants. One online video review from Homestead Stories shows that the tool works as advertised. It not only works to remove weeds from flower beds or vegetable gardens, but you also can use the blade to harvest crops that have a stem that needs to be cut low to the ground.
