The Oscillating or Stirrup Hoe (Complete With Handle) is the most sought after new garden tool 

When they see these Oscillating hoes in action every gardener or vegetable grower will want one. The Oscillating Hoe has a razor sharp blade that travels below the soil surface and slices through the weeds where they are most vulnerable - below ground.  This stops or slows them from rejuvenating themselves because they have no foliage exposed to life giving sunlight.

The Oscillating Hoes long handle allows you to reach in amongst vegetable beds without trampling on them. This fantastic garden tool also comes with a removable blade so it can be interchanged if damaged or worn. The blade can easily be re-sharpened with a stone or very fine file (If needs be). The blade also has a double edge so this garden tool can be used in a forward and backwards action.

Choose Your Size:

The Oscillating Hoe comes with heads in 2 different widths.

  • Regular: 13.5cm (5.3in) 
  • Wide: 17.5cm (6.9in)

Please choose your required hoe head size using the 'Hoe Head' Tab above.


Important: This Hoe includes the Ash 1.6m handle.

  • The Oscillating blade cuts weeds on the forward and backward strokes.
  • Cut weeds simply slip over the sharp blade.
  • The Oscillating blade actually sharpens itself as it moves through the soil.
  • Great for established weeds and pleasure to use on regularly hoed ground.
  • Our Oscillating hoes are Swiss made top quality tools and will last you a lifetime.

One of the most important tools you'll ever own, they make a great gift for the gardener also.

Hoe Dimensions:

Handle Length: 1.6m (63in) Long

I have had my hoe for about a year now, i have two allotments and as you can imagine at times have loads of weeds and i can honestly say this hoe is the best tool i have ever bought to me it's worth it's weight in gold. It is simple to use, just by pushing and pulling the hoe the weeds are up-rooted even deep rooted weeds. I would definitely recommend this hoe to any gardener there is nothing i don't like about my hoe :-).

Love this hoe! I use it to level the very edges of my horse arena where the tractor cannot reach. It's a huge area but I do 20 or so meters a time (5 mins). Easy!

Very easy to use and a very high quality. It has a very long handle so no bending down. It is expensive but it's worth it!
November 12th, 2016
Very pleased on receiving this product to see the length of handle just what I wanted at 6 feet tall and subject to back problems this saves bending. Have had this type of hoe before and a great tool it is

I brought an Oscillating Hoe from Quickcrop about three years ago and found it one of the most useful gardening tools I've purchased. Easy to use and spaers are easy to obtain. My neighbour saw it and asked me to get her one as she had heard about them before, so I did. She is delighted with it.One negative is the price. But in the long run it's worth it.

Hallo. Ik woon in Nederland. En ik heb dit besteld en gebruikt. i haat schoffelen,maar nu niet meer. Het is zo makkelijk en handig. En het scheel geld, want ik doe het nu zelf, ik hoef het niet meer uit te besteden voor geld. ik heb een behoorlijke grote tuin.In Nederland is dit niet zo bekend. Vreemd, want het is super handig.

Great addition to our professional garden maintenance tool kit. We can 'breeze' through borders & beds with the stirrup hoe, its easy cutting action and long handle make its use comfortable and so effective. Our customers enjoy a weed free garden that looks perfect and we can complete our work in quick time thanks to the stirrup hoe - so impressed we bought another!

This hoe is the best hoe I've used. Easy to use and cuts weeds in both directions, push and pull. Like all the best ideas, simple.

Great tool for getting an area weed free and helping to keep it weed free. What I particularly like about it is that after frequent use your soil will not only be weed free but free of big stones up a dept on two to three inches. This hoe is great for ploughing through the earth and finding stones that you can then remove. Its blade is nicely sharp to cut through the weeds and the handle although longer than most takes all strain off the back. A must have for anybody that has any piece of land larger than a raised bed.

excellent tool particulary the long handle

I absolutely cannot fault this hoe or the service I've received from this company. Ordered on Weds, delivered by courier on Friday morning. It probably seems a bit pricey compared with normal hoes but it's worth it because it cuts your work by half (at least). It took me minutes to completely weed a very large vegetable patch-a job that would have taken me hours of back-breaking work with a normal hoe (and then it wouldn't have done such a complete job). Highly recommended. I also bought the little hand hoe which is just as good and great for getting into smaller areas between plants that you don't want to damage.

What kind of metal is it?
Answered by Andrew
on June 05th, 2018
Hi Jenya The oscillating head is made from steel which has been galvanized. The replaceable blade is made from steel also. We can also supply a bronze version but this is considerable more expensive. https://www.quickcrop.ie/product/the-hydra-copper-oscillating-hoe-cd2

Answered by Andrew

Hello, yes we do, if you just search the site for stirrup or oscillating you will find the replacement blades.

Does this work on heavy clay soil? Tx
Answered by Andrew
on June 08th, 2016
Hi Kevin. The oscillating hoe will work very well on any soil type but note that it is for surface clearing of weeds and won't work deep in to the soil. If you want to clear a large heavy clay area the Chillington tools may well be what you are looking for.
