Absolute rubbish. Springs are far too strong making it almost impossible to penetrate the lawn, despite several weeks of heavy rain, and the entry spikes are not sharp enough. You probably need to weigh about 20stone to push the tines into the lawn! don't buy this!!!

This is by far the worst garden tool i've bought. It looks sturdy enough but when you screw it together it didn't quite match up. I've tried to use it in the garden but couldn't get anywhere. I thought it might be down to the dry weather so i waited. We've ha d about 2 weeks of rain and its still making no holes in the lawn. i also noticed that the package had been opened and resealed. I should have been told about this and given a discount.

Does what it says on the box. good value for money and easy to use. the handle connections could be stronger but overall, very good product.

It's o k but the tines clog up very easily. The one i bought 20 years ago did the same. I hoped they would have rectified the problem by now.

The tines don't take cores from the lawn if it is too wet but it still makes holes and is far easier to use than a fork produceng larger holes much easier.

Reasonable product. The soil cores do not get ejected properly even on soft lawns. I reckon only around 5% of the cores are ejected. As another reviewer said, it just becomes like a garden fork. on the plus side it is easier to retract than a garden fork due to springs.

The rubber handle is thin & wears really quickly.

Excellent product, better than other makes the springs make it easy to retract from the ground. I am over 70 and used many types over the years. This is the best!

I purchased this tool because it looked well built and robust unlike previous purchases from local garden centres. the item i received was slightly different from the one pictured. No thumbs screws to the outside of the handle - instead wing-nuts on the inside which is easy to scratch you leg on. i found that no matter how hard or easy i tried this product would not eject the cores out of the holes....It would seem that the hole diameters are to small. The result was the earth was just pushed into the ground similar to just using a garden fork. as a result - i wouldn't recommend it!!
