The show "Gardening by the Yard " showed a sring bottomed weeder that spun up the weed and allowed you to push the weed off the bottom with a push bar. I have a bad back and a very large garden. HMMM they seem to go together.
Any and all help welcome.

Have you tried going to the HGTV website and looking for info on that episode? They're usually pretty good about listing the items that are featured on their shows, I bet you'll find it listed there. At the very least you'll get a name for it, but most likely they'll list a website for the source too.

If the episode was on a long time ago you might have to look harder to find it, but if it's one that was just on in the last week or so, they usually keep a list of the recently aired episodes on the main page for the show to make them easy to find.

yes I have looked and they have a generic name which I can not find - even on the internet.

Here are a few things that work similarly (I found these by googling weed removal spin and weed remover spin, then followed links and got names of products...this is what I came up with in a few minutes, if you do that same search but spend a little more time on it there are probably more)

That first one looks close enough.

Looking at the HGTV page, it looks like the tools that Paul had were probably older things that he'd had for a while. Chances are they don't make the exact one he has anymore and that's why they didn't list a name or source or anything for it.

Mosbyone, I have a Weed Hound and use it all the time. I carry around a 5 gallon bucket and pop all the weeds in it as I go. I think I've seen them at Walmart or maybe Lowes.

I use a tool that is a copy of "Grandpas Weeder" very similar to the "Hound Dog". With it, I have decimated the population of Dandelions in my yard without weed killer. My deepest tap root has been a 2' long tap root one summer afternoon. The tool rules for pulling weeds.
