Why are Pistol-Grip handles more popular??

The “steam-bent” handles that many wheel hoes were originally equipped with were not designed for this tool specifically…they are actually handles made for horse-drawn plows, and were just used because they already existed on the market and were readily available from Amish manufacturers. With a horse-drawn plow, YOU are not PUSHING the plow…you are just guiding it. With a wheel hoe, you ARE pushing it, and the steam-bent handles can quickly give you blisters, since the curvature of the handles will easily allow your hands to “slide” up the handles if you relax your grip at all. On the other hand (no pun intended), the “Pistol-Grip” handles put the load of pushing right in your palms, and you hardly have to squeeze tightly at all. The only complaint we have ever gotten about the pistol-grip handles is that for folks with very small hands, the grip may be a bit large. Well, no problem…these are wooden handles, and with a coping saw and 5 minutes of work, you can “customize” the pistol-grips perfectly to your hand size.
