Groundhog Mattock Pick


Great tool. Right length and weight for control. Used it to clean aroung trees in the yard. Removed unwanted grass without excessive soil disturbance. My husband bought and I love it.

from SC

great for kudzu, easy on the hands


I have arthritis and I found this to be a well-balanced and very useful tool. The ax works well on kudzu roots, although it has to be sharpened frequently. I am ordering a cultivator as well. Well made, good grip on handle. Rapidly becoming my favorite hand tool.
