The Uprooter is the best Weed Wrench alternative on the market. Having worked for the Weed Wrench Company for several years, the owner of the Uprooter learned which features of the Weed Wrench tool needed modification. What do you get when you improve the Weed Wrench? The #1 uprooting tool in the USA, Uprooter.
What makes Uprooter better?
Perhaps the #1 suggestion made by customers was to reduce the weight of the Weed Wrench. The medium size, which most closely compares to the standard Uprooter, weighs in at 17.5 lbs. We made changes to the tubing sizes to reduce the weight as well as retain aesthetic appeal. These changes lightened the tool to 15.75 lbs making the trek to brush removal sites that much easier.
It Has Got the Grip!
The Weed Wrench uses expanded metal mesh to cover the jaws of the tool. During a day of privet removal or removal, soils can cake in the mesh, compromising the grip and making the jaws difficult to clean. The Uprooter’s 3-bar grip system secures a hold on the unwanted invasive for easy removal. No caking, easy cleaning! Now that’s a buckthorn puller!
Its Lock will Last!
Another modified feature of this fabulous brush puller is the placement of the locking mechanism. Occasionally, wear and tear on a Weed Wrench caused the mechanism to lose the ball which locks the jaws open. The Uprooter lock is set behind the guard on the sliding bar so there is no risk of losing the ball.
Its Internal Workings Work for You!
The pivot block and added brace enhance the strength and durability of the base of the Uprooter. By strengthening these two areas you can be assured this is a tree puller that will last.
It’s Easy to Pack!
The connecting bar on the Uprooter pivots so you can fold the bar forward making it easy to pack or ship.
If you think you want a Weed Wrench, buy an Uprooter instead. You’ll be glad you did.
