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.

Tilting the lever back to remove the violet.
Weeder inserted over the violet and stepping on the lever.
A good design, theoretically, as it worked until it broke and then it just didn't work anymore. By "broke" I am referring to the bottom part of the tool where the plastic is somehow welded onto a metal part. This plastic-metal joint is where the full force of the leverage is placed when you lean back to rip out the root from the ground. This tool would probably be fantastic if they had welded metal to metal on that bottom part but as it stands a plastic to metal joint just ain't gonna cut it if you want to pull anything thicker than a small dandelion root out of your turf lawn.
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.
At first I thought it was a little flimsy, but after trying it i was quite surprised how well it got the whole root. And I like how it hangs onto the weed instead of dropping it so you have to bend down and pick it up. The slide release throws the weed right into the garbage can.
I was looking for an efficient way to eliminate weeds in my yard. I was familiar with the manufacturer of this product and it looked like it could offer the solution to my problem. Initially it may take a small amount of time to become efficient in its use, but it seems to be quick, easy and effective. It generally seems to remove the roots also, so hopefully the weeds will not return. I did view a video on You Tube that helped me get the knack of using the device.
I love this tool. I brought it mainly for tackling Dandelions. It works great. It really gets down to the root. What's also cool is the weed ejector. The only minus is that it will leave a little hole where the weed was uprooted. Other than that it can't be beat. My neighbor is really happy that I got too. I may have to by him his own. It works exactly as advertised.
Like other reviewers, I LOVE this weed remover. I am actually looking for weeds to pull up. Great for stress relief too!
Word of caution...it should go without saying, but just in case...DON'T force the weeds up or you WILL break your weed remover. For the really tough weeds such as the dock family, you still need to use some muscle and a shovel. But for smaller weeds, no sweat, up they come and right into the bucket, no bending!
Some reviewers commented that it leaves holes, well, unfortunately, it will because you just dragged a weed out of the ground, you can easily shake the dirt from the roots, but yeah, there are some holes. I don't find this to be a major problem.
Finally, making my blue ribbon dandilion jelly and wine will be easier than ever with my new weed remover - it just saved me hours and hours of dandilion hunting!
Would I recommend it? You bettchya!

Review 8 for Uproot Weed Remover
High-quality product. Pulls out deepest dandelion roots.
After looking at competing $5 (Harbor Freight) and $15 products (everywhere), I decided I want to buy the more expensive, higher-quality product with the lifetime warranty. I'm sick of cheap, throw-away products that aren't intended to last more than a couple years. My friend bent his Harbor Freight weeder the first time he used it. My first time using the Fiskars Uproot (I have model 7880, currently sold at HD) was easy and unusually fun. There's some gleeful internal satisfaction in pulling up an entire carrot-length dandelion root. My yard has--no exaggeration--well over 500 dandelions and I wanted a non-chemical way to control them. The weeder makes quick work of them, and I could easily pull a couple hundred in less than an hour. The process is easy and entertaining enough that my 13-year old nephew spent 30 minutes or more using it in the back yard just because it was fun. It can, however, grab golf-ball to racquetball-sized divots as one reviewer mentioned, but I find these to fill in quickly with fresh grass once the broadleaf weed is removed. And with 500+ dandelions, I'm not looking for a golf-course quality lawn. If your yard is in better shape, you shouldn't have to worry about the few scattered divots. Finally, this thing is well-built and sturdy. Parts can be unbolted and taken apart, presumably for replacement parts if ever needed within the lifetime warranty. It even has a little hand slider that pushes the weed out of the claws, which makes for quick stab, tilt, lift, push motion. The tilting action forces the three claws together around the taproot, and if you continue tilting, it will lift the weed right out. Simple. Love it.
This is the easiest weed remover I have ever used. It only took me 30 minutes to do my front yard. Last year it took me 4 hours, on my knees. It's a little pricey but well worth it. I would recommend this product to any and all, especially to seniors, like myself, that can't get up and down like we used to. With this product there isn't even any bending.
Got weeds? Got weeds with DEEP tap-roots? Get the Fiskar Uproot Weeder, and with a little bit of practice you can answer both of those questions "NO" and smile about it. Bending and kneeling were murder on my back and knees, now I just sink the teeth of the Uproot and lever those monsters out from a standing position. I'll admit that it got a little fiddly where landscape fabric got into the mix so be careful and you'll get it sorted without issue.
Pros: Functionality, Good Shape, Durable, Easy to Clean, Strong, Sharp, Great Quality
Last summer borrowed a weeding tool from my brother; it worked ok but didn't get all the root especially the bigger ones. This year we went to buy our own and the helpful staff reco'd the Fiscar, so we bought it. Much better than my brothers tool! I was able to fill 5, 5 gal buckets in about an hour! My neighbors loved it too (we lend each other our tools). 5 stars!
I was sceptical as to whether this tool would really work and was pleasantly surprised at how fantastic it is! The upright weeder far surpasses my expectations and I couldn't be happier with its ease of use. The weeder eliminates low back stress because you stand erect instead of bending over to pull weeds. The claws bring the entire weed up, roots and all! I love this tool! Every gardener should have one.
The product does pull out huge clumps of crab grass and weeds that have long roots. It can pull out a good clump of dirt if the roots are very developed, but its better to get out the full problem and replace some dirt.
This has really saved my back and cut the time spent digging weeds considerably. It is actually sort of fun to use. I love it and would recommend to anyone that has issues with bending over and squatting a lot.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Clean, Functionality, Strong, Sharp, Great Quality
I have personally bought several of these weed remover tools and give them to family and friends. Everyone loves them. They are so great for the elderly people to use because they don't even have to bend over that much. One lady told me she was actually having fun pulling weeds.

This is the best weeder that I have purchased. It actually pulled the entire weed root and all!
I love this thing. Its easy to use and makes quick work of pulling weeds. My girlfriend and I take turns using it. Its easy and fun to use. I think we used it all day the first saturday I got it. I think we pulled every weed in my yard and the neighbors.
Love this product!! It works great at getting out all kinds of weeds. I have Rhuematoid Arthritis and have difficulty kneeling so I thought this would help and it does!! It works great! Highly recommend it!
I loved this product when I purchased it a year ago and have used it on dandelions and quack grass and it worked well, except it did leave a large hole in the lawn (divot) that had to be filled and reseeded. But this summer I started working with it and it all of a sudden just broke and fell apart while attempting to poke it into the ground around some quack grass. It is not repairable as a main mechanism that holds the four root prongs broke in two. Bummer.
