Grub hoes are available with several different head types and handle lengths. They are a light-weight tool that can be very helpful when bench-cutting a trail. This is when you are digging out the side of a sloped hill to create a level walking surface. The Grub Hoe allows you to efficiently grab and throw lots of loose dirt and debris. You might recognize that this tool shape appears on both the Mattock and Pulaski.
Although they can also be used for the
same purposes, the Grub Hoe is much lighter weight as it's not intended to be used for prying or as a blunt force tool. It can be much easier on your back and it's less weight to carry when you're hiking in several miles to do work.
