Works well in most areas

7/17/2018 by Maureen

While it works well on anything green,like small tree & bush roots. The older the root ,the dryer the roots, the harder it was to work it out.
However I only weigh 120lbs,a man with double the bodyweight had NO issues getting it to work. So I am a lightweight.


Mixed results

My daughter, who does landscape designs and installations, is using this. The blade is very effective, but she wishes the ergonomic handle were longer. She is tall and the short handle is hard on her back. They do offer a longer handle model, but without the ergonomic handle.


The Nomad is my favorite

This was heavier than the Nomad and didn’t work as well. The handle on the Nomad is also easier to manage and alternatively I can use it as a shovel or a weeder


Very small handle

He handle on the version I ordered is very small and not ergonomically correct. It causes pain with use. Considering an exchange for the larger handle but not sure about the circular shape.

The Radius Garden Story

Tree roots meet their maker.

Root Removers

Radius Garden Founder Bruce Baker created the Root Slayer family of root shovels to streamline digging, chopping, and sawing while you’re hard at work in the garden. And because Bruce always has usability and function in mind, his tools are ergonomic, durable, and guaranteed to last a lifetime.

These toughened up garden tools are made from strong but lightweight carbon steel, and all have an inverted-V cutting blade that’s lined with rip-saw teeth—this is where the slaying action comes from. The blade’s design is purposefully more narrow than typical tools to give you better access and
leverage around roots. Ergonomic grips boost comfort, and there are even smart add-ons—like a twine cutter and bottle opener—built into the trowel and soil knife. These tools are a smarter way to get the dirty, root-removing job done. Read More Read Less
