New Tools – New Prices !

Glaser Tools in Switzerland have increased their range again, so we now have some new tools on our website.

Here is a summary:

2 New Sizes of Stirrup Hoe – 100 mm and 150 mm – to add to the existing range of 125 mm, 175 mm, 200 mm, 225 mm, 250 mm, 275 mm, 300 mm, 325 mm and 350 mm.

2 New Sizes of Oscillating Hoe – 100 mm and 150 mm, along with the 200 mm model which arrived last year.  The 85 mm, 125 mm and 175 mm models have been top favourites for years!

The Weed Sweeper – a new tool, rather like a hybrid between the Collinear Hoe and the Wireweeder.  With a sharp replaceable blade for precision weeding.

The Roll Cultivator – to roll over dry, lumpy soil to crumble it into a finer tilth.

The Multi-Head Weeder – a new mini-system, based on a single holder to which different sizes of wire weeder and collinear hoe can be attached, as well as a torsion weeder.  Simple, robust and effective.

The downside is that we have needed to raise our prices for all the Glaser range.  Glasers themselves have not increased their prices, but the double whammy of Brexit uncertainty and the Covid-19 crisis has knocked the £ exchange rate down, so we have to pay more for the same value in Swiss Francs.  We have been 'carrying' some of this increase for a little while, so the increases are significant.  

As always, we will be glad to reduce our prices again if and when the exchange rate gets better
