I’m an older woman that was looking for a pick ax to break up an over 12 year old rose bush stump and its roots. This root slayer was indeed a God-send and handled the issue thoroughly and with ease. Didn’t have to exert extra energy, this tool did ALL THE WORK. I’ve already shared this tool with 2 older adults on my block.

My daughter, who does landscape designs and installations, is using this. The blade is very effective, but she wishes the ergonomic handle were longer. She is tall and the short handle is hard on her back. They do offer a longer handle model, but without the ergonomic handle.

Used it over the w/e to dig some holes for perennials and it worked better than any shovel I have ever had.
Works great

Bought this for my son who manages a large landscape and Hardscapes business. He has had his crews try it. According to their feedback they him, it works great and cuts thru roots quite easily; much better than conventional shovels. It won’t deal with large underground roots over 2-3inches in diameter. They would outfit their many crews with this product, if the product remains durable in commercial use.

My husband said we didn't need another shovel, but I bought this one. Now it is HIS favorite shovel. We have a "hard as rocks" berm in back yard and this shovel makes planting a whole lot easier. Good buy !

Radius Garden

Radius Garden Founder Bruce Baker created the Root Slayer family of root shovels to streamline digging, chopping, and sawing while you’re hard at work in the garden. And because Bruce always has usability and function in mind, his tools are ergonomic, durable, and guaranteed to last a lifetime.

These toughened up garden tools are made from strong but lightweight carbon steel, and all have an inverted-V cutting blade that’s lined with rip-saw teeth—this is where the slaying action comes from. The blade’s design is purposefully more narrow than typical tools to give you better access and leverage around roots. Ergonomic grips boost comfort, and there are even smart add-ons—like a twine cutter and bottle opener—built into the trowel and soil knife. These tools are a smarter way to get the dirty, root-removing job done. more Their Story
