More than a weeding tool...
the Ergonica WEED TWISTER is a
Weed Defense Weapon™
A Smarter, Safer Way to Control Weeds!™
Using the WEED TWISTER is easy as 1-2-3...
1. Point the coil towards the center of the root. For low profile
weeds, such as dandelions, place coil directly atop plant.
Approach larger or more distant weeds at an angle and wrap coils around
main stem just above the soil. The 36"-48" tool length
allows you to reach weeds 3 feet or more away from your path, depending
on your height.
2. Twist the coils into the soil applying pressure as needed. Moisten soil if dry
before applying tool. You can easily penetrate soil as deep as 6"-12"
or more just by twisting. The 2" diameter coil makes a hole hardly
noticeable in most lawns. No twisting needed when used as a
circle hoe for small seedling weeds.
3. Lift the WEED TWISTER™ when
you see the plant doing the "Twist" dance with the tool! Just tap the spring steel coils against any hard
object or the ground to quickly remove the plug of dirt that may accompany the roots.
Little or no pickup of debris is necessary. Light weight makes it
easy to use and carry around.
WEED with it: Twist it into roots of larger weeds
or hoe smaller weed seedlings like using a Circle Hoe. The versatile
WEED TWISTER can defend your garden against the smallest of weeds
in narrow spaces as well as crabgrass, bermudagrass, purslane and much larger weeds with roots from 6" to 12" deep,
Tree of Heaven (ailanthus altissima).
Reach under brush as far as 3 feet or more away from your path without having to use your foot to
push the tool as required by some other tools and twisters. See the Quick Tips
page for detailed instructions. The new INDUSTRIAL WEED TWISTER
is also quickly becoming the Farmer's Best
WORK with it: Dig holes for planting. Pick
up debris, papers, leaves by puncturing or hooking the coils around the
articles. Make narrow furrows for planting or cultivation by
dragging coils across the soil. Use it to support your weight with
one hand while you bend down to reach an object or control another tool
with your other hand. Even with one hand from a wheel
chair, you can dig small holes, remove debris, and take out weeds with
this handy tool. With a little practice, you can become a Master Weed Twister.

Its 36-48 inch length and light weight of less than two pounds make the WEED TWISTER
a comfortable walking stick and companion every time you walk into your
garden, or any hiking path, even it you don't expect to see any weeds.
And if a weed happens to show up, your trusty weed defense tool is right
in your hand and ready to go to work for you! It can also help to
defend you against snakes, rodents, wild dogs or felines and other smaller critters like spiders
or insects that happen to cross your path. For more interesting

The perfect WEED
Got the stubborn
weed blues? Have recent rains caused a WEED EMERGENCY in your
garden? Need a tool especially designed for your
weed emergency before or after the weeds go to seed?For weeding procrastinators who wait for weeds to grow large and
deep - this is your tool! With this amazing tool, you can tackle your pesky weeds
in your flowerbeds, pathways, hillsides and lawn and
manage to get to bed at the end of the day without
an aching back! The Ergonica WEED TWISTER
is quickly becoming the Farmer's Best
WEED TWISTER was created especially
for the home gardener who is willing to take
extra care in separating weeds from other plants, especially
when they are intimately located in a flower bed or
lawn. The new INDUSTRIAL WEED TWISTER, with a
48-inch length, had been added as our newest solution to dealing with
tough weeds and is especially adapted to agricultural applications
requiring repeated use for several hours a day. With a very precise coil width of
about 2 inches, and a lengths from 36 to 60 inches from handle to tip,
this heavy-duty tool is designed for penetrating lawns,
flowerbeds and rows of farm crops with a minimum of collateral damage and
effort. Protect your strawberry crops, celery, lettuce and
other vegetables with a very precise and efficient hoe and deep root extractor
combined in one powerful tool! No hazardous herbicides needed with
this amazing tool!
The WEED TWISTER is both a versatile
hoeing tool and a twisting tool, capable of twisting deeper
into the soil than any hoe, and any other weed puller, as well.
Traditional hoes are good for removing new weed sprouts
with roots as deep as 2 to 3 inches. Below that depth, you need a weed
puller like the
WEED TWISTER so that you don't sever the roots. Prong-type tools
can also dig deep, but the prong requires much more effort
than the WEED TWISTER. For hoeing small weeds, the WEED
TWISTER works much like a precise circle hoe, but even better for quickly unearthing new weed
seedlings and grasses in tight spaces. Now with sharpened tines, the
hoeing motion can more efficiently scrape out weeds in any direction,
including rapid sweep hoeing described in the Weed Twister
Quick Tips page. Don't confuse the ErgonicaWEED TWISTER with other weed twisters or pullers. Only the Ergonica
WEED TWISTER has the patented double-coiled tines.
Use it Like a Shuffle Hoe or a Twister
The Weed Twister coils have a circular shape that when
scraped along the top of the soil can fairly efficiently slip underneath
small seedlings with shallow roots much like the action of a precise
circle hoe or shuffle hoe. The sharpened tips of the Weed Twister coils
enable it to cut into the shallow soil like the edge of the circle hoe
or straight hoe. Although the Weed Twister doesn't pivot, its coil
design allows the worker to push or pull in any direction, horizontally
or vertically, from just about any angle, including sitting in a
3-D shuffle hoe solution! More power and control when pushing
and pulling is provided by the vinyl T-Handle grip of the Weed Twister compared
with the plain pole of a hoe. The coil's strong 1/4-inch spring-quality
wire will not fail when pushing, pulling, twisting or prying, within the
capacity of human strength.
On the home front and on the farm, crabgrass is
especially vulnerable to the WEED TWISTER
as are other grasses and plants with extensive horizontal root networks
and rhizomes, such as bermudagrass and purslane.
Even if you can't see the crabgrass roots or underground stems, chances are
the WEED TWISTER will find them as you
twist the coil in suspect soil. Purslane, crabgrass, bermudagrass,
and similar species can
effectively be contained in agricultural fields using the method
described in the Quick Tips page
of the WEED TWISTER site. How much do you spend each
season on chemical weed control products? The WEED TWISTER
will work for season after season and is therefore cheaper than risky
chemicals and clearly safer for pets, kids, crops and yourself! Be
kind to the environment: Use the WEED TWISTER
Another favorite target of the WEED
TWISTER is the dandelion. Many tools
will gouge large holes in your lawn when dandelions are
snuggled comfortably within. But the WEED
TWISTER carefully angles beneath the turf to hook
onto the roots with very little disturbance to your lawn. Our
customers report that a wide variety of lawn weeds have succumbed to the
wily WEED TWISTER
weeds, such as the invasive
Tree of Heaven (ailanthus altissima), can also be
controlled by the amazing WEED
TWISTER. If attacked before it grows too tall, the Tree
of Heaven is no match for this devilish weed puller! See the
Weed Twister vs. Tree of Heaven page for pictures of ailanthus
plants successfully removed by this tool.
TWISTER is more precise than most hoes, claws and forks and, if
aimed properly at the root of a weed in your lawn, will make a small
hole, about 2 inches in diameter, or the width of the root being
removed. In many cases, you can fill the small hole simply by
pushing the surrounding turf into the hole with your shoe. For
larger holes, add some compost and reseed the areas that are bare.
Be sure to remove the entire root of dandelions and other perennials in
order to prevent resprouting.
Using the WEED TWISTER is easy as
1-2-3. Just point, twist and lift! An
added benefit of the double helix tines is that the
removed plant usually remains in the coil after twisting
and lifting. This means that you will not have to
stoop down to pick up the debris afterwards. Just
unwind the roots from the coil over your waste basket and
there's no need for further cleanup! A quick tap on a hard object
or the ground will usually remove any plug of dirt that accompanies the
roots. The WEED TWISTER
is also much lighter in weight than most other hand tools that include a
lever or pedal to eject the weed from the device.
You can easily
switch between twisting and hoeing with the WEED TWISTER as the need
arises. The amazing double coil is also
useful for picking up leaves, twigs, paper and other
debris laying on the surface of the earth. Just
puncture or hook the tines around the objects on the
ground. You can also poke the WEED TWISTER under
thorny plants and cacti to reach a weed without exposing your skin to
painful pricks. The new longer models of the weed twister allow
you to extend your reach around, over and under large thorny plants,
cacti and brambles. This is a safe way to deal with poison oak and
ivy, as well. Take it with you on the trail to protect your path
from whatever comes your way! It makes a great walking stick, as
well. See many other suggested uses for your WEED TWISTER
that have been inspired by it's novel design, light weight and extended
TWISTER pays for itself in less than a year when used to replace
reduce the use of costly herbicides. Because it works both as a precise hoe
and a weed puller, it's like getting two tools in one! Some
twister fans buy several tools of different sizes to share with
members of the family or guests who help in the garden. If you
have a weed emergency in your
garden due to recent rains, why not buy several tools and host a
weed twister party of volunteers? In addition to tea and
cookies, you may even give each volunteer a WEED
TWISTER as a token of appreciation for their work.

you're not ready to give up your chemical helpers completely just yet,
you may decide to target one section of your garden as a "chemical
free zone" to begin with, and learn to use your hands and tools as a
healthy substitute for herbicides one step at a time. If you have
a large lawn, designate one half as the "toxic zone" and the
other half as the "Weed Twister zone". You may discover
that the work required to twist out weeds is not beyond your reasonable
capabilities, and may also be good as part of a regimen for staying fit.

Using your hands to pull out weeds is also OK until you run into
stubborn weeds that don't want to give up their roots. After all,
that's the way many weeds protect themselves. Other weeds use
thorny leaves and oily surfaces to deter contact from animals including human
hands. With the WEED TWISTER you can remove these
unwanted plants, as well toxic plants such as poison ivy without harming
As you work with the WEED TWISTER,
you'll discover very quickly what a versatile and
handy tool it is! From tiny seedlings to average
size weeds to even larger plants with roots as deep as
six inches or more, you'll find the WEED TWISTER
an effective solution to the problem at hand. Although some soils,
such as clay, may be difficult to work with for any type of tool, by
soaking the soil with water in advance, the WEED TWISTER
is usually effective in any type of soil or turf. There's really
nothing like the Ergonica WEED TWISTER on the market today,
including other twisting-type tools, either online or at your local hardware
Some folks even say the WEED TWISTER is
the fun way to remove weeds! That may be
stretching it a bit, but there is definitely a benefit to
your back and knees, since you will rarely have to stoop
or kneel down. You will also be spared from
pounding the soil and digging large holes as with some
When you're ready to buy your next weed
pulling tool ask yourself:
Can it pull out weeds, tubers and
woody plants with roots as
deep as 6 to 12 inches or greater?
Can it twist out networked grasses,
vines and prostrate stems?
Can it also work like a precise hoe
against new seedlings and grasses?
Is it a good match against all my most troublesome weeds?
Can it help to reduce my
dependence on herbicides?
Is it strong but light
weight and easy to carry around?
Does it have a long handle, as long as 54 inches?

Need to remove weeds from a wheelchair?
The Ergonica WEED TWISTER can do it! Very few other
weed pullers that we know of can be used effectively from a wheel chair,
including other weed twisters not manufactured by Ergonica or other
tools that require foot pedals for leverage or activation. See a
video clip of a custom-made 60-inch Wheelchair Weed
Twister wielded by a wheelchair gardener.
In the video you will see Bonnie, who is a quadriplegic with minimal arm
and hand strength, manipulating the Weed Twister. We created this
model for Bonnie and for others with similar physical limitations.

length and increased weed size capacity can
now be ordered for immediate delivery. More precise than a
conventional hoe and safer for workers and for crops, the INDUSTRIAL WEED TWISTER
is quickly becoming the Farmer's Best Friend!
This model not only gives you more reach
and less stress on your back with the 48-inch length, but also features a
comfortable vinyl grip which is especially important for repeated use on the
farm or in your garden. The upgraded 36-inch model also features an ergonomic grip and
increased steel gauge and strength. You can

The INDUSTRIAL WEED TWISTER will not only
make it easier on your back and allow you to reach weeds at a greater distance,
but is designed for the demands of agricultural applications, as well! Not
only is this a new favorite for organic growers and gardeners, but also is an
efficient weed control alternative for growers of many crops that require hand
weeding, such as celery, cabbage, lettuce, broccoli, spinach, carrots and
strawberries, for example. Ideally suited for perennial crops such as
vineyards, viticulture or grape vines, as well. For more information about agricultural
applications, please see the White Paper On the Weed Twister and
Other Alternatives to Precise Hand Weeding in Agricultural Applications.
The Ergonica WEED TWISTER can remove
troublesome weeds that most other tools, hoes, pullers, poppers and
twisters, will choke on. Although it is slim and light weight, this is
a heavy-duty industrial grade tool with a smart design that enables it
to outperform most other tools weighing twice as much. This includes
removing plants with large roots with a diameter as wide as 1.5 inches.
The length of the root may extend to the entire length of the tool and
shaft! Trials against specific species have been documented such as
Tree of Heaven trees with a height as much as 5 feet or more, as
well as small seedlings that can be cultivated by the tool when applied
like a precise hoe. The twisting motion enables the effective removal
of grassy weeds, vines and plants with prostrate roots, such as
bermuda grass, or field bindweed, for example. No other
single tool has been demonstrated to be effective with so many different
types, shapes and sizes of weeds.
Other popular tools are limited by their physical
structure, such as tools with nail-like prongs with a length of 3-4
inches, for example. These nail-prong tools may be useful for small
dandelions, but cannot reach into the roots of larger weeds with
roots beyond the length of their nails. In contrast, the WEED
TWISTER can twist out weeds with roots as deep as 12-24 inches

"The kind of weeds I use it
(Weed Twister) on are many different kinds. We have
clay soil in many places, which makes it difficult to get
out roots that are tightly bound in the soil. So if
I tried to pull out the weeds with or without gloves on,
only the top of the weed would remove. With the
tool, the whole root comes out. This helps weed abatement
rather than having the roots continue to grow larger and
stronger and pop out a new top sprout.
crab grass, clumps of
fescue grass, thorny ferns (which is nice not to have
to touch them to get them out) and dandelions.
Other weeds are not identifiable, but weeds just the
same. I have tried the hula hoe, but it seemed to
only get the tops of many weeds. The weed twister
also is convenient because it elevates (sic) having to
bend so far or kneel to pull out the weed." ...Laura...,

"I've used the Weed Twister for the final two
months of the dandelion season here in the Boston area. I
suffer from a condition that leaves me with little energy
for common activities, so it was such a pleasure to
discover the Weed Twister. It only takes one easy twist
to remove an entire dandelion plant, so moving over my
lawn clearing it of dandelions,
and other low-growing weeds is now more than just a
I have recommended and bought Weed Twisters for several
of my friends, who also enjoy using them." ...David...,
"... I got it yesterday, and have already de-dandelioned
my front yard! :-) That is a really cool invention you
have there. At the same time you are weeding,
you are also aireating (sic). I was also able to
havest (sic) several small tree seedlings, that were
coming up in my yard, to replant in pots.
It pulls up a plug of soil with the root, (well it did
for me because our soil is clayish and wet these days) so
that I could just pop it into a pot." ...Nancy...,
"For most of February and early March the
rains came beating down. The garden plants drank
heartily and weeds of all kinds drank greedily. The
weeds grew huge with roots 6" long and big around as
a green thumb.
But alas! The weeds were no match for my Weed
PS A really good product." ...Richard...,
"I put the Weed Twister to work the day I received it. I
removed some 3 ft. tall weeds that were growing up against my porch -
all while standing on my porch! I twisted away and removed about 20
weeds. My only problem now is that I am fresh out of weeds! I guess I'll
just have to wait for the 'new crop' to come in!
Also, I am 5'-6" tall, and I am very glad that I bought the 42"
Weed Twister. The smaller one would have been too small for me to use
comfortably. Yet, 5'-6" would not be considered a "taller person" for a
man. So, you might want to be more specific in your height/tool
Thanks for a great product that works as described. I hope to
avoid using products like Roundup, especially since I completely killed
a mature shrub while using Roundup on some weeds near its trunk."

"I just bought a Bed and Breakfast in the mountains of Virginia,
and never really had any experience in gardening. My new Inn is
covered in flower beds and 9 acres of grass. We have weeds taking
over and I was trying everything and every kind of tool. When I got
my first Twister last week it was amazing just how many dandelions
were in our yard. We filled a 5 gallon bucket up 3 times and still
have more. The twister makes a easy job of it and is really fun to
see how much of the weed we get each time. I showed it to my Father
down in North Carolina and that is why I ordered two more, one for
him and one for another friend.
Editor's Note: Dan's second purchase was also an upgrade
from the 36-inch model to two of the 42-inch models.
"I got the weed twister today and I put it to work immediately. It
worked as I hoped it would. I hope this will last for years. It is the
only thing I have found to get rid of the tough weeds in my lawn without
killing the grass or digging a hole. I will spread the word about your
great product. I now have a large garbage can full of crabgrass (I think
that's what it is). "

"By the way, our new 54-inch Weed Twister is working great for
our weed removal business! Water soaking on some large tumble
weeds, even for a few minutes since time is money, has worked for us
for more efficient weed removal in desert landscapes and for
preventing tool damage."
"I recently purchased a Weed
Twister and have not had a chance to use it on the really tough
weeds in the yard of my AZ house but today I extracted a small palm
tree with it in Reseda, CA! I am a utility pole inspector and there was a baby
palm growing at the base of a pole. I used the Twister around the
base at several locations to loosen the soil, aimed for a stout
branch and twisted the tree right out.

Editor's note: Don should be
recognized as an inventive tool-user who figured out a way to pull
out a larger plant than the usual Weed Twister target! Well
I got it (Weed Twister) 2 days ago...I used it
yesterday...works great!! Nice concept...wish I would've thought of
it!! The design is simple and effective but you should lengthen the
claws about an inch or so to get down farther in the soil. I bought
the Garden Weasel first...because this isn't available in
stores...that was a mistake...the claws started bending out of shape
immediately, so I had to bend them back...plus it makes big 5" holes
in the lawn and you have to repack the soil after use...not like
your product! I bet you've made a bundle on this huh?
Editor's note: Ty will soon learn that
this tool can twist and dig deeper than 12 inches, more than
any other tool of this class. See the Deep Hole Test on the
Quick Tips page.
The Weed Twister is a fantastic product. I also ordered the
handle extension which makes it even easier to use. Friends and
family looked at me skeptically when I told them about it, but they
have since tried it and now agree with me that it is a great tool.
De Pere, Wisconsin
After (finally) receiving the small weed twister, I am happy to
say thank you for a unique product which I have used frequently. I
live geographically in a very gravelly part of Wisconsin due to its
glacial origins. The weed twister has proved itself as an
indispensable tool for those invasive species that HAVE to be
removed before they go to seed. I must admit that it is not a fast
process, but I am getting more efficient and find it is worth the
extra effort to remove the entire weed, to prevent re growth. I will
keep it close by on my hikes and forays, and continue my never
ending job of invasive species control with new confidence.
Wonderful product...I use it to pull up
poison ivy without having to touch it.
Editor's Note: Sue purchased the
42-inch Weed Twister. The longer handle keeps her at a safer
distance from poison ivy.
Long, winding prostrate roots and stems are no problem, nor
are roots with different shapes, rhizomes or tubers, as long as the
central root stem can fit within the coil of the tool. Long
single-prong tools are also capable of digging deeply into the soil, but
these tools do not feature the advantage of a coiled fork that can
penetrate the soil more efficiently and can grab the roots of weeds that
a single prong will often miss. The

capabilities in more detail, including its use as a precise hoe, weeding
in containers, against landscape objects and to gouge out weeds in
narrow cracks and crevices. The versatility of this tool is

Still Undecided About the Ergonica Weed Twister?
Several independent authors and gardening experts, as
listed below, have mentioned the Weed Twister as a Weapon of the Weed
War or Important Outdoor Supply item. You can always ask a
gardening expert that you know and respect for his or her opinion.
You can also request advice from various online groups or blogs, but
make sure the person making comments has actually used one of the newer
models of this tool.
Because the Weed Twister is not distributed in retail stores, you
may be the first person on your block to get really serious about doing your
homework and buy a unique tool, such as this tool or some of the others listed in the Garden
Tools page, that will become a new curiosity in your circle of friends
n comparison with other long-handled tools and hoes, you
will discover that the Weed Twister is lighter and more ergonomically
friendly than most other tools of the same length. Because of its
unique design, it also disturbs less soil than hoes and other pullers,
tillers and claws, even when going deep, which reduces the
promotion of latent weed seeds in the soil! Since no other hand tool can remove deep roots as
effectively and efficiently as the Weed Twister, we believe the Weed
Twister is an essential tool for every garden and farm! Please see what
other publishers and experts say:
PRODUCT: Weed Twister
by Ergonica PRICE: $19.95 at
www.ergonica.com HOW IT WORKS: Twist a
three-foot yellow pole with a coiled,
cyclone-shaped head into the earth
around dandelion. Pull straight up, and
the weed pops out, root and all. WEED COUNT: 6 to 7 per
minute. PERFORMANCE: Leaves
large holes in ground and you must bend
over to remove weed. Still, it worked
fast, was portable, and ultimately was
the tool I grabbed to finish up my yard
when testing was done.
How to Prevent Sore Joints When Pulling Weeds:
Weeding, pruning, digging and raking can cause aching muscles, sore
shoulders and tension in the neck... Purchase a gardening tool that
uses a twisting motion to remove the weed instead of a pulling
motion. Using a weed twister will allow you to remove weeds by using
your shoulder muscles instead of your lower back muscles.
Indoor Garden Supply: In late winter, early
spring, gardeners prepare indoor garden supply products for both
their indoor and outdoor gardens. By having a good inventory of
indoor garden supply products, gardeners can be ready to plant
seeds, transfer plants from various pots and trim dead leaves and
vines. For important outdoor supplies, consider keeping on hand
shovels, rakes, hoes, hand tools, mulch, garden bags, tiller, rain
gauge, shears, hand saws, trimmers, pruners, gloves, water hose,
loppers, weed twister, sod cutter, and etc.
Alternative Weed and Pest Control: For years,
now we have heard about the negative impact of Pesticides on the
environment. The professional users of pesticides are responsible
applicators using them in a safe and appropriate manner. It has been
the non-professional users who have gotten us in trouble...There are
a lot of alternatives available, for example you can use a Dandelion
Popper, Weed Twister, Ergo Weeder, Garden Hoe, Scuffle Hoe, Circle
Hoe or Deck Flosser.
Weapons of the Weed War: More gardeners are
turning to Earth-friendly remedies and gadgets to wipe out weeds:
These gadgets may be Earth friendly, but their names are anything
but nice. They are called the Weed Dragon, the Dandelion Digger, the
Weed Twister and the Infra-Weeder-Dandy-Destroyer.
