Seller: myrowtohoe (1,284) 100% , Location: Great Bend, Kansas, Ships to: US, Item: 182360238986 If you are looking for a super neat and very hard to find antique garden tool --you just found it! This long handled mechanical dandelion digger works by placing the blade by the pesky weed...push down on the green (well, still a little green) handle...the spring in the handle opens the curved part with teeth...when you have dug the weed release the handle and the teeth will grab hold of the weed. And there you have it--you don't even have to bend over. Well, I have never actually used it to dig a dandelion but that is the way I figure it works. The overall length is 41" x 6" x 1 1/2" across the blade--the blade itself is 3 1/2" long. I couldn't push down while taking the picture so I used an old hinge to keep the teeth open. This would be an awesome Christmas gift for that garden tool collector on your list. It is still in good working condition with original red paint and patina plus. It has only what I would call minor and expected wear from a little actual use. Please Zoom and enlarge the pictures for your best description--they show better than my words tell. Yes, you could go out next spring and do some "dandy digging". But why would you want to do that when this will look amazing just hanging around wherever you show off your collection of garden tools and such! I am quite sure you won't be seeing another like it any time soon. Sorry, the "pretty brown eyes" won't be coming along because they are already wilted. Please let me know if you have any questions. This will be carefully packed for safe shipping. Insurance will be included because you never know. Payment is due within three days and I ship the next business day. I am happy to combine shipping when practical--please wait for my combined invoice to pay. Thanks for looking.
