All of our Uprooter and Weed Wrench products have machined jaws that close completely when the lever is fully engaged. This allows for all tools to be used on the smallest stems (approx. 1/8″ diameter). We recommend selecting products based on the maximum size stem for your project. Please refer to the specification chart below for comparison.
Note: Uprooter and Weed Wrench have the same specifications and are functionally the same with only a difference of color and branding.
Uprooter is the tool with the strength and durability for removal of woody plants. This heavy duty tool uses the physics of a lever to give the user a mechanical advantage, improving their ability to grab and uproot any unwanted woody plants.
Uprooter’s patented design is constructed of A36 mild steel and is intended to be tough enough to handle a lifetime of work. Uprooter features a manageable weight (approx. 15.25 lbs) for its surprising industrial strength and a freestanding height of 52 inches. Our most versatile size, Uprooter can pull stems as small as an 1/8″ in diameter up to 2.25″ in diameter. It has a locking feature that keeps the jaws open when placing around a stem.
Uprooter Mini has the strength and durability of its larger counterpart, but is nearly half the weight and size. Great for wilderness projects and steep terrain, this light weight tool is easy to pack. As a member of your uprooting team, our reduced capacity tool (1.125″ jaw opening) will help conserve your energy on smaller plants and increase your endurance for large pulling projects. Easy to use for men, women, children, and individuals with limited mobility; everyone can participate in your restoration effort. Uprooter Mini does not include a jaw locking mechanism.
Weed Wrench is the tool that multiplies your strength against removing undesirable, woody plants. Its patented design is constructed of A36 mild steel and is intended to be tough enough to handle a lifetime of work. Precision machined jaws with 4 teeth (vs. wire mesh) increase gripping power. Weed Wrench weighs 15.25 lbs, is 52 inches tall, and can handle stems up to 2.25 inches in diameter. Built just like the Uprooter, its durable safety orange powder coat finish and reflective decal make it easy to spot in dense brush or low light conditions.
Weed Wrench Light
For those looking for a light-weight tool that allows the user to remain standing while pulling undesirable woody plants, this is the tool for you. Weed Wrench Light has a jaw capacity to remove plants 1.5″ in diameter and smaller, stands at 43″, and has a jaw-locking mechanism. It weighs in at mere 10.8 pounds, yet has superior leverage with a 8:1 pulling ratio. The reflective Weed Wrench decal is easy to spot in low light conditions. Many people prefer Weed Wrench Light because it is lighter than other tools and its handle sits at a comfortable height for continuous pulling. For large projects with varying stem diameter, Weed Wrench Light is an important addition to your plant removal fleet. It is ideal for personal property management and volunteer groups, offering the perfect combination of pulling power and ease of use.
