I give this tool 7 out of 10 acorns. I got it last year, and have used it a lot, and my son loves to tear up the ground with it, too. I like that it telescopes longer or shorter, so I can make it small enough for him to use, and long enough for me to use one-handed. I say one handed, because it's really not long enough to used two handed without back pain. But, I can thwack at the ground with when I just use one hand. Some one taller than my 5'4" might not be able to, though. Still, it worked for me, and was a life-saver when I needed to weed while carrying my baby on my chest last year--I could keep standing/walking and keep her asleep/happy while I worked.

I also like that it has both a cultivator side, and a hoe. I don't have any other cultivators, or hoes, so I'm thankful to have something that does both. I use the hoe for making little trenches for my seeds to go in, and the cultivator for pulling out grass and buttercup. It does a pretty good job of doing that!

Recently, though, the handle has decided that it doesn't want to stay on, and so it pops off if I encounter any sort of resistance. This is frustrating, to say the least.

But, still, I appreciate that both my son and I can use it--and he LOVES to use it!--and that's a really big plus. And I've gotten many hours of use out of it. It's probably not the best cultivator or hoe out there, but it is useful if you don't have either, and need something that can change it's length.

He sure has a great time with this thing! Sometimes it's hard for me to have a chance to use it!
