Ryobi 18V Garden Hoe – Features
They are saying it’s the industry’s first 18V garden hoe. There are many types of hoes and this model is using an action hoe design. This means that it’s good for both weeding and cultivating soil.
Historically, this tool has been a manual powered tool but Ryobi has turned it into a power tool. (Maybe next they’ll make a Ryobi USB Lithium spoon and fork to make the arduous task of eating easier! That’s a joke.) They’ve accomplished an 18V hoe thanks to an oscillating blade design that appears to oscillate on the same “pivot” point of a traditional action hoe. The blade oscillates at about 350 oscillations per minute.
This oscillating action will aid in weeding and cultivating. The user will still have to work the tool forward and back where need so some manual power will still be required.
Above you can see the action hoe style blade. The blade has serrated like teeth on it which will no doubt help when weeding.
The overall shape mimics that of a string trimmer with shape and the way it’s meant to be held. Even down to the second handle.
