How Much Does a Weed Wrench Cost?
Do You Have Wholesale Prices or Discounts on Large Purchases?
No. There is no middleman markup typical of most other products you buy. There are no distributor costs, marketing costs, etc. Everyone gets the same, low price (unchanged now for the last 15 years or so... Thanks, Tom!!) The savings on larger tool purchases come from the reduced shipping cost on fewer, but heavier, packages. (see combined shipping info)
Is it in stock?
Yes, all sizes are currently in stock.
We try to keep all sizes of tools in stock all the time. We manufacture these tools right here in Oregon which means no waiting for the next container to arrive from China. Our backorder periods are rare and usually last a week or less.
Will the larger Weed Wrenches work on smaller size weeds?
Yes, they will. All Weed Wrench jaws close to zero.
Is Weed Wrench tough enough to do the job?
The rule of thumb here is that if the tensile strength of the stalk exceeds the anchoring strength of the roots, a Weed Wrench will pull it. All of our Weed Wrench tools are professional grade tools made of heavy steel that can handle any woody weed. After more than two decades of use, only four easily-avoided ways of damaging a Weed Wrench have been identified. This is a tool you can hand down to your kids and grand-kids.
Do You Have a Video Featuring a Weed Wrench?
We haven't produced a video of our own yet, but here is one channel 11 in Anchorage produced in July, 2011 of the first annual "Weed Smackdown". And here is another produced by customer Russ Henry of Giving Tree Gardens. (Thanks Russ!)
Will Weed Wrench work on blackberries?
I get mixed reviews on blackberries. The pithy stems can crush and break too easily, but if you can grip a bundle of stems and the soil is silty or sandy, not rocky, you can pull the root crown out. The problem then is that every bit of root remaining in the soil will re-sprout, and eventually you will end up digging or spraying them anyway. My personal preference for blackberry is a good quality pick-mattock.
How Soon Can You Ship My Weed Wrench?
We ship on Tuesdays and Fridays so your tool/s will always go out on the next ship day after we receive payment.
How Long Does Shipment Take?
Here is a cool map that shows the days in transit for UPS ground service to the Lower 48, or postal delivery for Alaska and Hawaii orders. "Days in Transit" does not include day of pick-up, day of delivery, weekends, or holidays. Areas shown are approximate borders for estimation only.
How Much Is Shipping?
The shipping rate calculator has lots of tool size combinations for most zip codes. However, if you do not see the the tool combination that you need, send in your request, or call us at 541-471-2012 during normal business hours and we will add it to our list right then. Our normal business hours are Monday-Friday, 8AM to 5 PM (Pacific Time Zone). It is currently 08:29 PM here at the Weed Wrench Company
I Received Only Part of My Weed Wrench!
When will the other part arrive?...All light, medium, and heavy Weed Wrench handles are shipped separately from their heads. It is the ONLY way we can box these larger tools. The boxes are always shipped together. However, they might get separated during shipment and arrive on different days. This happens rarely, but it does happen. Almost always the missing box will arrive the followning day, so be patient. Use your UPS tracker information to get package details at any time using the link you received in your UPS email.
Do you combine shipping for multiple tools?
Yes, we do! Our shipping rates include discounts for multiple tool orders. If you do not see the combination of tools you wish to order, please call our office at 541-471-2012, 8 AM to 5 PM Pacific Time and our friendly staff will give you a quote. It is currently 08:29 PM here at the Weed Wrench Company.
Do you ship outside the US?
We will ship to U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico, just use the order form and select these countries from the drop down list of states where the customer's shipping address is requested. (look at the bottom of the list, after Wyoming). We do not ship to Canada.
Do you offer faster delivery options?
WE NO LONGER OFFER THIS SERVICE.
Why did you stop accepting Credit Cards?
Beyond the goal of not giving the banks a big pile of money for what I knew only cost them pennies to process, it was finally time to bring my business practices into alignment with my economic and political beliefs. Cutting loose from the credit card system was one small way in which to do this. There are plenty of other projects waiting for whatever time I save by not making the Weed Wrenches for the sales I might lose as a result.
Knowledge of how our monetary system actually works has come late in my life. This is a subject deliberately left out of our education because the swindle only works if the majority of the population don't know it's happening. There are now excellent web resources for learning about money and banking, and how they are currently destroying our economy and nation. I recommend the videos "Money as Debt" or "The Secret of Oz" or the lecture series "Chris Martenson Crash Course"
What about Sales Tax?
Weed Wrench never charges sales tax to ANYONE because we are in a state that doesn't charge any. Isn't that great?
Do You Have a local distributor in my town?
No. Because there are no distributors, you are able to buy this tool directly from the manufacturer where your money goes to the people who made it, not middlemen. Having a local distributor would not save you the price of shipping, it would only hide the shipping in the retail price.
Will You Post Our Community Weed Pull Event?
Yes, we will! The new Weed Wrench Bulletin Board is now available! (Sept. 26, 2011) A place where you can announce your volunteer/non-profit weed pull projects or find one to join. Get involved! Have a great time, make a difference. Get involved now!.
Do You Know Where We Might Find A Weed Wrench Crew for Hire?
We have decided to post listings for Weed Wrench owners who are ready to put their tool and muscles to work in their community. We do not endorse those we list, and make no claims about the quality of their work. You're on your own in that department. Until we finish this specialized page, visit the Weed Wrench Exchange
Do You Have Used Weed Wrenches For Sale?
We do not sell used tools. However we now offer Weed Wrench owners a page where they can post theirs if they want to sell, rent, or loan theirs, or even hire out their tool(s) and work crew. This helps make better use of the tools out there, and the idea is to help reduce the number of new tools we need to produce. We will include individuals, groups, and businesses including rental companies. If you can achieve your plant removal goal by making use of this option, please have a look here first... Visit the Weed Wrench Exchange page
I'd Like to Talk to the Weed Wrench Guy. When Is He Available?
8 AM to 5:30 PM Monday through Friday, Pacific Time Zone, 541-471-2012. Calling earlier or later will route your call to voice mail. It is currently 08:29 PM here at the Weed Wrench Company
My Call Gets Dropped. What's Going On?
Does Your Caller ID say "Out of Area"? As of today, (November 1, 2012) we have had to apply "call block" if caller ID says "out of area" or "Private Caller". We hope to 'weed out' the many junk calls that come in almost daily. Unfortunately, a few legitimate callers also come in this way. We hope these few callers understand our situtation and can place their calls to us using another line, or, use our CONTACT FORM as an alternative method to get in touch. Robot sales calls (and survey calls) were intruding upon us daily, often several times per day. Something had to be done!
