Roots always seem to get in the way of digging, whether you expect them or not. Once you switch to the Root Slayer you might not even notice them most of the time. The Root Slayer is really a multi-purpose shovel that can eliminate the need for other tools, such as hatchets, pry-bars, and saws, when simply digging around the home. If you’ve ever hit roots while trying to plant a perennial, or been stymied by roots when trying to dig up a shrub, or tried to divide hostas with a spade only to have them slide away from your shovel, you’ll know what we’re talking about. You can use the Root Slayer as your go-to shovel. You can also use it to replace your nursery spade. Think of it as a shovel, root hatchet, and root saw all in one tool.
Some jobs are so challenging you feel like you need a whole crew with specialized tools to attack them. These large Norway Maple roots were dug from an actual driveway edge garden. The ripsaw teeth cut through the largest roots with a kick-sawing motion. Anything smaller than 1.5" can be severed in a single plunge with the inverted V cutting blade tip.
