It get the job done! You get the craftsman quality and what you come to expect from craftsman. I would not give 5 stars since they can improve the quality of it. It felt nice and soft on the hand due to it's big rubber piece on the handle. Which I thought was a nice touch compared to the other products had a harder plastic piece. The best thing about buying this garden hoe from Craftsman is the lifetime warranty. It's one of the best in the market! They stand behind their products, you can't beat that!
It is now 6/13 and the hoe is unuseable. The blade is bent out of shape, not strong enough. I have been a craftsman club member for years and am seeing a poorer quality of tools available presently.
What I dont like is how they changed the policy for Hassle Free Lifetime Warranty on Craftsman Tools. I bought tools over 13-15 years ago and some longer and now they are telling me I need my receipt to exchange my rake because one of the teeth is bent after 15 years. I told them back then you didnt a receipt because of the hassle free lifetime warranty. I didnt have an email then or a cell phone or a members reward card because these things didnt exist then. I bought all my tools because of this warranty and now it doesnt exist. Its disappointing, and I wont buy from Sears anymore. I didnt want my money back....just an exchange for a new rake.
I am pleased with my garden hoe. It does everything it is suppose to do in my garden.
