Wilkinson Sword’s New Ultralight Collection Products: Gardeners looking to breeze through this season’s gardening tasks needn’t look any further than the Wilkinson Sword Ultralight collection. The range delivers strong, expertly crafted and stylish garden tools in a comfortable, featherweight package that weighs up to 50 percent less than its traditional counterparts.
Following the initial success of the Ultralight range, Wilkinson Sword found there was an overwhelming demand for a wider collection of lightweight tools for tasks all around the garden. This prompted a further enhancement of the cutting range as well as an expansion into cultivating tools. As a result, the range now features a total of 15 products for pruning, cultivating, hedge care and lawn care.
Digging in the garden can often be a laborious job, but by using the new Ultralight Digging Spade, this once backbreaking task is made easy. This spade has a serrated edge that allows you to break up the soil and dig with ease and is strong enough to cope with heavy loads, despite weighing up to 40 percent less than a traditional digging spade.
Essential for planting, potting and weeding, the Ultralight Trowel and Ultralight Hand Fork feature rust-resistant stainless-steel heads which easily glide into the soil. The ergonomically-designed handles have been shaped to sit comfortably in hand whilst working.
Ideal for clearing leaves and hedge clippings from the lawn, the new Ultralight Adjustable Lawn Rake will help keep the garden free from debris and weighing just 810g (30 percent lighter than a standard garden rake), this minimises strain on the gardener. In addition, it has a raking width which can be adjusted from 19cm to 56cm, making it perfect for working under and around shrubs and borders. This tool can also be compacted down for easy storage.
Other new additions to the Ultralight cultivating tools include a Garden Rake, Dutch Hoe, Edging Knife and Shovel.
The cutting range has also been further enhanced with two new pruners. The Ultralight Bypass Pruner and Ultralight Anvil Pruner have high carbon steel blades which can cut through stems up to 15mm thick. Thanks to the reduced weight, hand fatigue is significantly reduced, making these easier to use for longer periods of time. Another new addition is the Ultralight Single Handed Grass Shear, which has a 360-degree full swivel blade to cut lawn edges perfectly and is up to 30 percent lighter than standard hand grass shears. These tools join an already popular cutting range including hedge shears and tree cutters.
