I have read all the reviews on weed removal tools and this appeared to be the best rated. My front yard was a mess with weeds, mostly dandelions, since I did not have time to weed & feed earlier. The Fiskars weed tool is a lifesaver. Not only was it easy to use, but it also saved my back from pain by not having to bend down to pull out the weeds. You simply place the tool over the weed, step down on the base and pull down on the handle. There is no effort and even the biggest weeds with 6 inch roots came out easily. I pulled out about 60 weeds within 15 minutes. This is the best gardening tool ever. I highly recommend it, especially for weekend gardeners.
Pros: Durable, Functionality, Great Quality

If you're thinking about getting this tool , do it. Was skeptical purchasing the Fiskars only because I've never had luck pulling weeds. But I have other Fiskars products and they're always quality. Well let me tell you, I wish I had more dandelions to pull. They make weeding fun. What I couldn't believe was that I could not find this tool on any shelves. The only way to get it was online. I actually called Fiskars to tell them their product was not being stocked nor shown in any of the stores that said they carried it. I could increase sales 10 fold if they let me take over the account. This thing sells itself!
My wife wanted this uproot tool to extract broadleaf, crabgrass and other nasty weeds from our yard and lot by the lake. I didn't think it would be much, but for $25 I indulged her. Fact is, this thing works great with little effort. The ground has to be fairly soft, but she uprooted a wheelbarrow full of weeds the first time she used it. She also dropped a little grass seed into each hole after extraction. She says it's actually fun to use, and whenever she is happy, I'm happy.
I don't usually leave reviews much but I just had to share my view on this product. I went into Home Depot to look for this tool (which I came across by accident on Amazon) but they only had it online and one of the employee's said there was a yellow weed remover in the store but it keeps being returned. So I ordered the one off line as it had good reviews and in a few days it came in a big box with only the 3 pictures on it for instructions.
I followed the pictures and it was so easy I could not believe that I was not using this all along.....it is great on the big weeds which I was skeptical about as I thought there was a catch and it would only work on the smaller ones (however I find it works best on the big ones) but that is not the case it works as described.
Just put the tool in the center of the weed (sometimes it hard to tell where that is) and pushed down then pull the handle towards you and out comes the weed. I have always had to dig out the weeds and it would take FOREVER on my knees (which I'm getting too old for) but this is a great time saver in just a fraction of the time 20-30 mins intead of hours/days. It makes the experience more enjoyable so it's definitely a keeper!
Takes a bit getting used to but easy to use, saves back and knees, doesn't yank out the entire root but leaves a nice hole where you can use spot treatment with herbicide and handle the problem. Obviously, cannot be used for weeds growing in between pavers.
Saw this product featured on an infomercial on a HG DIY channel. Unable to find it to purchase in store, so I purchased online. I have been thrilled with this product and use it often. The ease of use helps protect my back and allows me to weed my lawn and garden without aggravating my carpal tunnel syndrome. Also protects my fingernails from breaking. No more bending over or getting on my hands and knees to remove weeds from my lawn or garden!
I have also given as a gift and the recipients love it as much as I do. My son bought one for his elderly neighbors he saw using small tools weeding their lawn and garden on their hands and knees. They were so appreciative and have thanked him over and over for finding this nifty gadget to help them with their lawn and garden.
I have other Fiskars gardening tools, so I was thrilled to add another Fiskars product to my gardening toolbox.
Pros: Durable, Vibrant Color, Easy to Clean, Functionality, Strong, Sharp, Great Quality, Good Shape, Easy to Use

Tilting the lever back to remove the violet.
Weeder inserted over the violet and stepping on the lever.
As a person with hip, knee, and back issues this tool is the best. Very easy to work even with limited mobility in my hip and knee. Did a great job, and has enabled me to get back into my yard and do some gardening which I love to do.
Pros: Functionality, Durable, Strong, Sharp, Great Quality
Uproots the weeds easily with sharp prongs as you step on the base. Best part is the ejector bar...makes the job of weeding seem like a game as you toss the weed into your trash can.
Pros: Sharp, Great Quality

Review 10 for Uproot Weed Remover
Purchased twice, both broke immediately
PostedApril 28, 2014
No, I do not recommend this product.
Purchased this product once, it arrived without any tags and was just thrown in a box. It broke within 10 minutes. After returning it, another one was shipped, and that one broke within 15 minutes. Will try another brand.
This tool worked quickly and easily for some weeds, but not those with long roots. It successfully pulled up the dreaded dandelions, but like with hand-pulling, often missed the lowest tip of the root. Also works quickly for pulling clumps of grasses from flower beds. I particularly like how easily it works and certainly eliminates stress on the back and knees. (I am only 5-ft. tall, so a taller person may have to stoop a little to use this tool.) I purchased the lower-end model that only has 2 blades and possibly the higher end model with more blades would have worked better. Overall, I really like the tool, but it doesn't work for all weeds.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Clean, Functionality, Strong, Sharp, Great Quality, Good Shape
I love my weeder - so far - if it "holds up" then I'll really love it. My previous stand-up weeders, of other brands, have broken after one season. I'm counting on the Fiskars brand to hold up its great reputation.
I cannot believe how great this thing works. It pulls out the root up to 8 inches below the surface. It doesn't always get the roots on young weeds because the root is too small for the teeth to grab but the mature weeds are no match for the mechnics of this weed remover. At times it does feel a bit flimsy and I think it could be reinforced a bit more but I would actually buy another if it broke because I am so happy with it. A word of caution though, this will leave holes in your lawn so be prepared to place some topsoil in the holes if you do not like holes in the yard. I look at it as aerating the lawn and just drop some seed in the holes as I go.
I first heard of this product in that well-know magazine with product reviews (am I allowed to mention its name?). Delighted to find it on Home Depot, also with high reviews. The product has lived up to it's hype. This tool is easy to use and effective, my yard is nearly dandelion-free now. Remains to be seen how well-built this thing is, but I have the feeling I'll get several years of service from it. Oh .... as a bonus, I figure all those little holes that are left behind are aerating my lawn too!
You get what you pay for. It is advertised for pulling dandelions out of lawns, not dock weed and Japanese knotweed. So to be fair, I was using it more heavily than it was meant for. But even after the plastic lever started breaking, it still worked for a while. Easy to figure out how to use after seeing the provided video once. I really needed it for a specific job, and it helped with that job. I only wish I could have used it more - I'm not a fan of "disposable" tools. Also, it comes in a HUGE box when shipped, so we had to take it out of the packaging to get it into the car at the store.
Gets the weeds up. One problem, make sure ground is soft such as after a rain or watering. If the ground is dry, you will find yourself having to stomp down on the foot lever to get the blades all the way down which can wear yourself out pretty fast and then it has problems removing all the root when ground is dry which is very common in West Texas with their watering restrictions.
While this unit worked, it did a very good job. The problem was that it broke very quickly. We have a large garden, of which we use only a small portion. In the unused portion tends to do well in weed production, and we have already removed them four times just this year. Our plan was to remove the weeds one more time, used our Mantis to soften the dirt and then cover the soft/weed free dirt with a commercial quality weed barrier. At first the 'Uproot Weed Remover' did an outstanding job, but then one of the critical partd broke makinf the unit unusual. The part was made of plastic, rather than metal, and just broke.
If the company were to redesign the plastic parts using metal, it would be a much better product. While doing so would increase the cost of the item, it would make it more reliable and woth more.
I have a big pasture at the edge of my yard. I battle with weeds every day all summer long. I went to the internet to find an easier solution and found a video for this thing. I ordered it from Home Depot, it shipped to the store for pick up without problems. Now I use this pretty much every day in the summer. It doesn't work on every single weed, but I can get weeds like dandelions out of the grass without issue, but where it really shines with when I battle the puncture weeds, devils weed, puncture vine, whatever you call it (I call them Goat Head Thorns) that grow in the pasture and in my Garden. These weeds drive me nuts and they grow right along the ground and my kids step on them and bring the thorns back into the house, I HATE THEM. Picking them used to be the worst because they poke you and it hurts, even through gloves and then the root breaks lots of times, its just hateful work. The Fiskars Weed Remover works to pop them out effortlessly, and without injury. If it ever breaks, I will buy another!
