The Natural way to hold Hand-tools.
The PETA range of ergonomic garden and hand tools consists of a fork, trowel, weeder, hoe and cultivator. All metal parts are stainless steel which does not rust and reduces soil adhesion.
PETA Fist-Grip handles are at approximately 90" from the tool head allowing the wrist and hand to be held in a neutral stress free position enabling a much firmer grip on the tool. The average weight of the tools is 225gms (8ozs).
Gardeners with weak hands or wrists will benefit considerably by using a PETA arm support cuff, which plugs into the rear of any tool and can be changed from one tool to another. The strength of the forearm is then employed in assisting the hand and wrist.
PETA Long-Reach garden tools are designed for gardeners who prefer to sit on a stool or chair whilst working. The tools are approximately 76cm (31") long and all metal parts are stainless steel. The Long-Reach range includes fork, trowel, cultivator and hoe. A PETA interchangeable arm support should be used with PETAL Long-Reach tools which will give greater control over the tool and reduce any strain on the wrist.
The average weight of Long-Reach tools is 450gms (16ozs).
