Corona® SoilRIPPER™ with ComfortGEL® Grip Garners Design Patent

Make quick and easy work of garden maintenance and soil prep

(Corona, CA) Once considered a seasonal gardening necessity, research has shown that tilling soil can disrupt the soil structure essential for thriving, healthy plants. Large gas-powered tillers are also difficult to manage and require significant upper-body strength to maneuver. Corona's solution is its recently patented SoilRIPPER™ with ComfortGEL® Grip (LG 3624) to get the job done quickly and more efficiently.

The SoilRIPPER is a hand-held tiller substitute that loosens and aerates topsoil for easier planting. It's ideal for raised beds and reaching tight spots next to valuable plants. SoilRIPPER is also tough and lightweight, making it easy to control and use. It's designed to make preparing soil in raised beds quick and easy. SoilRIPPER saves your back and arms from excessive wear and tear while maintaining the soil structure.

SoilRIPPER Features

  • Four heat-treated steel tines with sharpened points pierce through the soil with a non-stick coating to make clean-up easy and prevent rust.
  • A heavy-duty metal footplate withstands high load-bearing pressure, letting you leverage your full body weight to penetrate the soil.
  • A quick-release plunger helps push out packed-in dirt and debris from the tines.
  • The 48-inch durable carbon steel handle with lightweight construction makes the tool easy to transport and use.
  • And the ComfortGEL™ grips provide exceptional comfort and control during use.
  • Corona's SoilRIPPER™ unique design recently garnered a U.S. Patent #D838,150.
