View Full Version : Garden Tools - Made in the USA

Hey, tips on gardening tools. I got tired of breaking them cheap wooden tools from Home Depot and Lowes. Best gardening tool I ever used was The Raptor. I been using it for potting plants, weed removal, and edging. Great tool I been using for now a year and I can say its the best tool I ever used for gardening small and medium plants. Planted ten rows of tomato plants using this tool last summer. It has a nice grip too. To find these guys there over at http://www.predatortools.com/ the Raptor is the orange one.

Well, thats my recommendation, I don't think i'll ever use them wooden tools again :cool:

Anyone have any other suggestions for great American made gardening tools?

I found excellent old tools at yard sales and flea markets. They are not the cheap wooden handles which give splinters before they detach. Keep a look out for them and ask if they have any to sell later.

Yep, flee markets are good. Oddly enough sometimes auction houses a few old gardening tools that (might hold up) lol. I was using a late 1800s hand pick for doing some small gardening. Did not have a wooden handle but it still worked :D

No problem, like a online USA made gardening store, but my favorites are the Predatortools :)
