Winged Sweeps


The Winged Sweeps are one of our strongest and versatile weeding and cultivating attachments. Great for removing large weeds and cultivating compacted soils. Works with the Hoss Single, Double and High Arch Wheel Hoes.

Sold in Sets of 2 or 3


Modeled after the duck-foot cultivating sweeps on the Planet Jr. Wheel Hoe, our Winged Sweeps provide exceptional strength and functionality. Available in 4" and 6" wide blade models. The design is similar to our Cultivator Teeth, but with a longer, flattened blade for penetrating the hardest soils and uprooting large weeds. The blades are positioned at the perfect angle so that they easily dig into the soil for cultivating and weeding. The wings on each side help to ensure that weeds don't slip off the side of the blades during cultivation.y soil type.

They work well to clean areas that have been impacted by heavy weed pressure. They do an excellent job of penetrating hard, clay soils or soils that have been compacted by foot traffic. MADE IN THE USA with high-carbon steel and a powder-coated surface. Professionally sharpened and hold an edge very well. Because it's high-carbon steel, it's also easy to sharpen in the future after prolonged use.

Possible Configurations with the Winged Sweeps

The Winged Sweeps can be used with the Hoss Single Wheel Hoe, Hoss Double Wheel Hoe or the Hoss High Arch Wheel Hoe. They will also fit the antique Planet Jr. Wheel Hoes. For the Single Wheel Hoe and Double Wheel Hoe, you can use one, two or three at a time -- depending on your desired cultivating width. On the Double Wheel Hoe and High Arch Wheel Hoe, you can use one on each side for a straddle-weeding setup. This will allow you to cultivate both sides of the row in one pass.

Breaks Up Compact Soil Well, but Not a Replacement for a Rototiller

It bites into the dirt and rips it up, even if it's packed down from a lot of foot traffic. It does NOT work well for roots or sod. It's a good tool for putting in a garden in a place where the ground is bare, but will not deal with larger roots or sod, even if you only use one sweep. It will cut under sod with ease, then lift the whole chunk up and wedge it under the tool bar. I have a lot of aspen trees around my yard, which means there are runners and roots running under the grass everywhere and the sweeps did not handle them at all.

Maybe the team at Hoss could come up with a sod or root knife attachment? Something to slice through roots and sod like the ripper on a bulldozer to cut roots and sod into manageable chunks for the cultivators, winged sweeps or plow to handle.

If there are concerns about a ripper tooth being too hard to move, perhaps a sleeve with a ring on it to fit on the axle between the wheel arms and a belt to attach it to for two-person use. My wife feeds me a good breakfast and by pulling I could put more of those eggs, potatoes and sausage into cutting through roots while she steers.

Just a thought.

Works well for me on crabgrass

5 out of 5

My wife and I decided to start a homestead in our retirement. We have made extensive use of Hoss Tools in this project, purchasing a double wheel hoe early on then adding a high arch when it was introduced, the original seeder then the new seeder when it was introduced, and many of the attachments, with the most recent being the winged sweeps. The winged sweeps now live on the double wheel hoe. I prefer them to the stirrup hoe attachment for light weeding, especially close to plants as the wing's edge protrudes sufficiently to allow very precise location of the plow since the tools position is clearly visible when doing shallow cultivation. For dealing with heavier weeding (out of control crabgrass, for example) it is truly amazing, out performing my original sweeps and any other Hoss accessory I own. FWIW, I will soon be 76 years old and my wife and I work an 1/2 acre garden with Hoss wheel hoes and BCS walk behind tractors with rotary plow, power harrow, and cultivator. We have 3 acres of grass land that we mow using a sickle bar mower and rake with the tractors to use to make compost. All of this equipment costs less than a "toy" tractor with no implements and is much better exercise than golf!
