So here I am, a highly independent, older woman with some muscle weakness problems, as well as a brand new raised bed garden, filled with soil, which had never been worked.Oh dear. But, I am an avid gardener, and we never back down. I knew that 1) I wanted to aerate the soil, 2) add amendments and fertilizer, and 3) top off with mulch. I quickly learned that the standard long-handled hoe, or cultivator are of little use in a raised bed garden. What to do? An internet search, of course! I soon discovered that whereas many short handled tools are now being sold to accommodate this gardening innovation, the price of some, is prohibitive. I had two goals to meet. 1) Find the right tool. and 2) Find the right tool tool at the right price. Following a couple of failed attempts, I came upon something called the Rapid Digger, sold by Sears. Every review glowed with praise, including several that extolled, the generations long, good reputation of the Craftsman logo. And at $14.95, the price couldn't be better! At approximately 2lbs, and an 18 inch handle, it's been pretty much perfect for my small, 4ft X 8ft beds. From either a sitting or bent position, this quality tool is really all I used to get the soil ready to sow my first seeds. Indeed, it may still be in action when I sow the last ones.Solid tool, no regrets.

A neccessary tool


Great tool, very sturdy and gets the job done the first time. Very helpful for gardening, weeding, and digging up roots.

Awesome Tool!


My go to tool for any digging in close quarters. Craftsman quality where it counts. Would recommend getting this tool for your car, garden, workshop. One for each location.

solid digger


I just picked up today in December, planning for next spring, but my old digger is really old and rusted. this one has some heft to it and shouldn't rust so I am giving 5 stars in anticipation based upon initial impression. ( haven't used it yet) ... I used my old one for removing weeds in garden beds and removing sections of grass for planting beds. this tool along with a hand rake are great for clearing sections of turf for planting. kind of a must over small garden trowels for removing stubborn deep rooted weeds or grasses...I am anticipating this one working better than my old one since it is a little heavier duty.
