The pull or draw hoe is used to scuffle or chop weeds and the shaft is about 6” shorter than the push hoes - this makes it easier to use for chopping. The blade is slanted back at exactly the right angle to chop the heads off weeds; it has a razor-sharp bottom edge which can also be used in a scuffling motion to shave small weeds off the soil surface. It copes really well with hard, dry ground and can be used for earthing up vegetables and making shallow sowing trenches.
All Sneeboer long-handled tools are finished with a round ball at the end of the handle. This serves as a grip and, when scuffling, provides a physical reminder that your hand is at the end of the handle. So smart! The longer-than-usual handles mean that you can work in a more upright position, minimizing backache. An especially great feature for tall folks.
