    Perfect video for my making my purchase choice! I was having trouble deciding which one to choose and as a tall person myself you can guess which one I chose.

    Splendid comparison mate. One question though, how should I sharpen my hoe?

    Hello! US gardener here. I have never seen anything like a dutch hoe in my hardware store, so it was interesting to see that unfamiliar tool. What you call a stirrup hoe is called a scuffle hoe here. I use one frequently. Mine is of similar construction to your version, but on mine the bottom piece of steel is completely straight. Enjoyed your video, particularly that you were unfazed by the wind.

    Nice comparison. I’m 6’2" and have been deliberating over getting a stirrup hoe, think you’ve convinced me. I ended up bending the head of my dutch hoe in a vice to change the angle a bit so could use it a bit more upright, but stirrup definitely looks more ergonomic. Worth sharpening the dutch one often with a file though, it does help if it’s got a good edge on it.

    Ellen is rough, it lifted my Tunnel Greenhouse even though it was well staked down

    A good tip. Being tall myself I’m always glad to find ways to reduce bending over to garden

    Good on you. A young industrious young man. I am searching for hoes and found this information exactly what I needed.

    Should’ve named the video title "Hoedown"

    I didn’t know the know differences between the hoes. Thank you for the insight on selecting the proper garden tool.

    Would you recommend this hoe for a short person? I rarely use my Dutch hoe because it is hard work and cumbersome so I end up sitting and hand weeding which is very slow. That hoe looks much easier if suitable for my 5’2" .

    Nice video, I just bought a stirrup hoe, never used one in my life, iv always pulled by hand but I figured my new allotment plot would be somewhat more difficult to manage than my garden beds so I invested in a few tools to help speed up my rounds when things get going 😁

    Excellent video!!

  18. NJ Morrissey on August 26, 2021 at 11:04 pm

    Thanks for sharing about the hoes. Never saw one except you using one in your videos.
