Submitted by mactwyver on Mon, 06/22/2020 - 3:21am Tool Concept Stage: Prototype Primary problem statement: I am a farmer and I want a tool to reduce the total amount of tools needed because I want to develop a lean farm infrastructure. Read more about this problem statement License: This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License. Description: Hi! Recently I made a set of modular wire hoes made solely from parts found at the local hardware store. It took me about half an hour to assemble all parts using just a few simple pliers. Each item of the hoe can be disconnected and replaced if needed. This summer I will be testing the prototype on two farms in the Netherlands (both on sandy soil) to see if the tool is sturdy enough. In addition to testing the current prototype, I am looking to develop this modular set further. The system is based on quick release connectors typically used for pneumatic machines. I think the quick release connector system can also become part of a wheel hoe, rake or small hand weeders. If you are interested in helping to further develop this modular set or test it in your own garden, please let me know! I will upload an instruction manual and a list of parts needed as soon as possibleAdd new comment Documentation Video: Image Gallery: Related Tools This tool is a component of these other tools: HOE with INTERCHANGEABLE, PLASTIC MULCH FRIENDLY, ADJUSTABLE, SHARP & FLEXIBLE blades, "RECYCLE STRAP HOE" I like this tool up0 users have voted.
