Do these things actually work? I've always been curious.

Looks like it works well if your soil is already loose/pre-tilled or not clay-like. So it seems like a metal rake would do about the same for my needs.

I bet if the soil is rock hard (like my lawn), it will just skimp on top of the soil rather than get below the surface to do any tilling. Please correct me if anyone has success using this on hard soil.

I saw my neighbor use this tool on his lush green lawn though.

I remember these

Looks as if you need to balance a very heavy boulder or weight to get anything done else may be just barely visible needle marks on the soil? I could be wrong, not seen or used this ... but would like to get based on +ve inputs

I have had one of these for years, very handy for small jobs. You do have to apply downward pressure and can take some effort. Great for touchup work where putting seed down in the lawn or in the garden. The (3)tines are removable so you can change the width on the area you are working. $10.00 is a great price too.

I prefer the "Farming Ferret" but this is likely the next best thing.

I've had good luck with the lawn lemming.

Great for mixing up your mulch... the top of your mulch fades but if you use this it brings the more colorful mulch on the bottom up to the top.

I had one and thought it was going to help me lighten the clay soil in my yard. Wrong! It's like you describe - skips and rolls along the top of the soil - no tilling. I sold it for a good price at a yard sale. Instead of this tool I ended up using a shovel and a metal rake. I added planting soil on top of it. It's hard work, but effective.

I use the garden claw which is worth its weight in gold.

For best results your soil should be moist but not muddy before working with this.

Amen to that! I swear I use mine for many many things even excavating fairly large rocks it just needs 1 tiny corner to grab hold of whatever is down in there buried and boom, done.

LOVE my claw!

If the price can be favorable , it would be perfect .

Wow it's still going. I just ordered one for pick-up later today. Thanks OP!
