I need to buy myself a new hoe but which is the best one to go for, but it has to be one with a long handle so i don't have to bend.
This will be the most used tool in the summer for those pesky weeds any suggestions most helpful thanks in advance.Lillileaf.

I bought an Oscillating Hoe last year and thought it was brilliant  :)

I like my Swoe as you can also use it vertically if weeds are up close to - say - leeks, but that oscillating hoe looks pretty impressive too!

I had a cheap B and Q version some years ago, but the blade was far too thin and broke after a couple of years, but both designs are much better than the original Dutch hoe design!

I bought a Darlac DP2581 Narrow Spade Hoe Long Handle UK a few years ago, and this is more accurate than any hoe, and also very sharp, but takes a while to cover a large area as the blade is so narrow!

Whatever feels comfortable to you.  Pop into your local hardware chain and handle a few so you get one that's the right height and weight for you to brandish.  We'll all have our own favorites for lots of reasons but they won't necessarily suit you.

well i bought a new hoe i went for the oscillating hoe, well what a game changer, i did the fruit cage which is 6m x 4m in about 20 minutes its fantastic i love it,hoeing will never be the same again, it either never got done or i got the weed killer out.
 thank you all for your help.

Hello try the Wolf range of hoes, to get the handle height right you have to follow the gardeners statutory code of practice ,hoe in ground hands on top of handle rest chin on hands if after half an hour it's still comfortable it's a good hoe    jezza
