I bought it instead of the "Weasel" brand due to the handle extending from 33in to 52in. Also the blades can be removed for custom configuration of row width. The first time using the cultivator, the outer set of blades broke off at the place where it can be loosened for removal. The blade shaft is not steel but looks like a composition inner then dipped in a metal looking material. The blades did not automatically clean themselves. I had to unwind pieces of weed stems from each blade. It isn't worth the effort of ordering or unpacking from the shipping container.
