    This is the best dandelion puller I have ever seen, and, because you don't have to do alot of bending, it really saves your back. It will also work on any weed that grows from a central point.
    You just position the prongs over the very center of the dandelion or weed, shove it down into the ground with a little pedal provided for that purpose, give it a sideways tilt, and your dandelion, with part or even all the root, is pulled right out of the ground with this tool. It doesn't matter if it's in thick grass or not; this tool pulls it right out. I would recommend this tool to anyone!

    I used grandpa's weeder only a few times; had it less than two weeks and pushed down on the lever into our soft sandy soil and I heard a pop. It broke. The lever seems to be made of soft, breakable aluminum. If it was made of steel, I would buy it. [...]

              My grandmother turn me on to this tool. I have since turn it on to lots of others. Including my grand kids. Great tool. But my daughter hated it. It was pull weeds instead corner time.. :) Wonder if she will use it when her kids get to that age...

              I used mine when I lived in Illinois. I loved how it pulled up dandelions, root & all.
              I moved to Arizona and the ground was to hard.
              I gave it to my brother in Arkansas who has had back surgery and knee replacement and he loves it.

                I have had this for 5 years and I love it. My husband said I should buy a second one for the back yard. My husband has a bad back from opening railcars through the years and he thinks this is the most cleverest yard tool he has used. HE DOESN"T MIND USING THIS AT ALL! I recently hurt my neck and I can tell you it is a wonder for me as I can't do too much, but can help with weeding or anything else that resembles a weed.

                  I used my son's weeder on his 3 acres in McKenleyville for 4 days. The unit was simple to use and I never had a problem with it. If you have a bag or pail with you just drop the weeds in it and you don't have to pick them up later. I'm 72 and it saved my back.

                      HATE dandelions- used spray weeder with mixed results-then a small hand spade[had to dig a crater to get root out]. Bought an old dandelion weeder,but the constant stooping killed my back. Then, bought a cheap long handle one-prongs bent on second weed- REALLY ? Saw online reviews for this-decided to give it a shot. Now you must get it centered directly over the weed and push down a bit,then push on lever. If you don't, it won't work. But once I got the hang of it, I went to town!Our 8yr.old granddaughter,Arden,takes over when she comes to visit- says it's HER job. She loves doing it.

                        I bought this to help weed our seashell driveway. It doesn't work as well for that b/c the seashells interfere with sinking the claws into the earth. This works decently well on lawn weeds. However, if you are not centered over the weed, or it has tenacious roots, you may end up pulling off leaves only.

                              I've used this to pull over 100 dandelions so far. I moved into our house last November, and the previous owners did NOT take care of the lawn. I don't want to use chemicals, and I don't have enough cash to replace the lawn entirely, so I bought Grandpa's Weeder, and hoped that it would work. It does. I use it for about ten minutes at a time and am able to pull out tons of weeds. It's so easy and I'm just thrilled that it works as good as it does. You are NOT wasting your money if you buy this product.

                                On the first day of use on Scotch Broom (a hardy invasive weed/bush), the handle broke just above the metal pulling mechanism. The wood just wasn't hard enough to withstand the pressure put on it by leaning against it as instructed. It had worked well until about the 15th plant. I'm not that large a person (female, 130#). It needs a metal sleeve or totally metal handle.

                                  This little tool gets the job done! It is exceptionally easy to use and thorough in getting the roots and all. It is much sturdier that other weeders in that the digging part is made out of heavy cast iron instead of the rather frail nails/spikes you find on other brands. It is so easy to use that once you start on the weed patch it is hard to stop because it is so easy and the results are so good. What a great addition to my garden/lawn tools.

                                      We own a very old version of this tool that was our grandpa's. My siblings and I all fight over it. Our parent's keep it under lock and key. You have to check it out and return it asap. This tool makes pulling weeds enjoyable, easy, and quick. We love it!

                                        This item is fantastic, especially if you have arthritis or problems that prohibit you from bending over easily. I just loaned my to my neighbor who has arthritis. She is going to get one for herself.

                                          This is the best dandelion puller I have ever seen, and, because you don't have to do alot of bending, it really saves your back. It will also work on any weed that grows from a central point.
                                          You just position the prongs over the very center of the dandelion or weed, shove it down into the ground with a little pedal provided for that purpose, give it a sideways tilt, and your dandelion, with part or even all the root, is pulled right out of the ground with this tool. It doesn't matter if it's in thick grass or not; this tool pulls it right out. I would recommend this tool to anyone!

                                          I used grandpa's weeder only a few times; had it less than two weeks and pushed down on the lever into our soft sandy soil and I heard a pop. It broke. The lever seems to be made of soft, breakable aluminum. If it was made of steel, I would buy it. [...]
