Fiskers weeder-anyone got one?

I am thinking about a Fiskers weeder device. Of the weeders that I have seen, this one seems the most appropriate.

Although they appear to work ok on the larger individual weeds like dandelions, I`m a bit sceptical on how efficient they would be on a group of small leafed weeds like daisies.

If you have one of these tools, what are your thoughts on this?

    I have one and it is brilliant for uprooting dandelions and it is as easy as it looks. I like daisies so I wouldn't uproot them.

  • Ok, thanks. It does appear to work well on dandelions in the video. (I find dandelions very easy to dig out with a large knife). I think I'll stick with weed killer for the daisies.

    Its a great tool and fun to use. Makes weeding the lawn something to look forward to, and that's not something I thought I would ever write.

    How will you make daisy chains if you kill them all?

    Would be good on shallow rooted weeds, it snapped the root on the dandelion though, but it will take a while to grow back again, so thumbs up.
