Weasel History

The Garden Weasel was discovered at a German hardware show in 1974 when it was presented by its inventor Gerhardt Guetschow. President of Faultless Starch Company, Gordon T. Beaham III, saw the gadget and, seeing as there was nothing like it in the U.S. market, Beaham and Guetschow struck up a conversation, which turned into a friendship, which turned into an agreement and a handshake that still holds firm between the two companies today.

Feature Testimonials


I just purchased a Garden Weasel Weed Popper and I am amazed. I am a retired Grandfather who voluteers to take care of his Grandson's private school football field. I have struggled with weeds and this year there is a bumper crop. I have now gotten up from my hands and knees and am using your miraculous invention. It works as well if not better, than you say. It is saving my back, knees and hands by just popping those weeds, even Johnson grass clumps, out of the earth. This year our football field will look better than ever. There is no product I could recommend higher than the Garden Weasel Weed Popper.

I just bought the Garden Claw and was amazed how it performed. I must admit that I was a little skeptical and thought that I was wasting my money. But, it proved me wrong. Not only did I get my garden done quickly but, I had no back pain what-so-ever. (And I have a bad back.) I love the idea that I don't have to mess with gas or cords and clean-up and storage is a breeze. This is a great little tool and I would recommend it to anyone who wishes to go green and still get the job done.
