In this post I am going to write about my 10 favourite Wolf Garten Multi Change Tools.
As they are multi change tools it means you buy the tool heads separate to the handles and they all interchange with each other, meaning any of the tool heads will fit onto any of the handles.
Whether you are just keeping them in your garden shed or loading them into you van or car, the Wolf Garten range of multi change tools are excellent for space-saving.
There are a lot of multi change tool heads available from Wolf Garten. A lot of them you can see listed in one of my other posts: Wolf Garten Tools (Wolf Garden Tools) – Types And Uses.

I myself have a lot of different multi change tool heads from Wolf Garten and in this post I am just going to let you know about my 10 favourite ones and what they’re used for. I will also include the links for you so you have the option of buying any you like the sound of for yourself.
As all the listed tool heads need the handle to be able to use them effectively I will include a section at the bottom listing a few of the different types of handle available.
Because there are various different handles and sizes of handles available to buy it means you can always choose a handle that is a good length for you, so when you are using the tools you can work upright without having to bend over and put unnecessary strain on your back.
It is also worth noting that all the Wolf Garten Multi Change Tool Range come with a 10-YEAR GUARANTEE.
1. Leaf Rake
This is definitely my favourite rake in the Wolf Garten range. I use this rake a lot.
It is perfect for not only raking up leaves but also for raking up grass cuttings and other general garden waste.
The rake head is 42cm wide and consists of 21 strong plastic tines. Because the tines on this rake head are very strong and robust it also makes it a great rake for using on patios and paved areas.
I find this rake great for raking everywhere on all surfaces.
When raking amongst plants or vegetables then obviously you have to careful you don’t damage them.
I absolutely love this rake and if I were to have just one rake head from Wolf Garten then this would be the one I’d choose.

2. Push/Pull Weeder
The push/pull weeder comes in two sizes: You can get a 10cm or 15cm wide blade.
It is a type of hoe that is also known as a stirrup hoe.
You can find out more information on different types of hoes by CLICKING HERE and reading my post Garden Hoe Types – Their Best Uses.
A great feature on this is that it has a sharp blade on both sides so will cut through weeds while pushing or pulling it. Another great thing about this tool is that it self-sharpens as you’re using it which means that even after years of usage it will still be just as reliable to use as when you first bought it.
The push/pull weeder is made from quality steel and is coated with long-lasting anti-rust chrome .
I love using my push/pull weeder. I have both sizes but tend to use the 15cm one more often.
It is especially good if you have a large area that needs hoeing. This really does make light work of it and you’ll be surprised at just how quick and easily it gets the job done.
I tend to use a variety of different hoes in my work as a gardener, but I rate this one as the best for larger open areas.

3. Flexi Brush
There are a good variety of brushes available in the multi change range from Wolf Garten.
This flexi brush is by far my favourite of the wolf garten brushes I own for the reasons I list below.
To start with I will say that the bristles on this flexi brush are angled and it’s not flat ended. I mention this because I have seen peoples reviews on this brush saying they sent it back because it’s angled and not flat. It is meant to be this way and that is part of the reason it makes this brush so good.
The angled bristles help to get the brush into awkward places and corners.
As I mentioned above, the angled bristles make this excellent to get into tight spaces, underneath tables, furniture etc.
It can be used on a variety of surfaces to great effect. You can use it to sweep hard surfaces such as patios and decking and it’s also great to use on grass and soil. It can also be used in gutters and other narrow areas.
I find this brush particularly good when using on areas with small stones. Because of the style of the frayed ends it does a great job of brushing away any debris on the stones without taking too many of the stones with it too, which is something that other brushes can’t manage.
This really is a superb brush. Maybe to some it may look to be a weird design but it really does work, and it works very well.
This brush is 25cm wide.
If I could only have one brush in my tool kit then this would definitely be the one I’d choose.

4. Soil Cultivator
This tool head is for breaking up the soil. It is best used on soft to medium soil.
It is great to use between plants or vegetables and is designed to cut through the soil at just the right angle, breaking it up and helping distribute the nutrients around.
Because of the angle you use this tool at it stops you stooping and bending, therefore not putting too much strain on your back.
This tool head is 11cm wide and consists of 3 lance shaped prongs that are nice and sharp, they are made from excellent quality steel with a zinc lacquered finish to prevent rusting. It also self-sharpens while using it so will carry on being just as good years down the line as the day you bought it.
When using this cultivator in the right soil it goes down pretty deep and breaks up the soil well.
It is great to use in smaller and larger areas. Some people (myself included) like to use this on their allotment plots and it’s great for getting ground ready for planting.
I also like to use this to break up and mix compost and manure into the soil before I plant certain vegetables or bulbs.

The Wolf Garten scraper head is a superb tool to own. I’m sure that in all gardens you will find a use for it.
Whether it be a patio, paved area or along the edges of your house or outside walls, moss and weeds will start to grow.
With this scraper it makes light work of getting rid of them.
The scraper has a sharp edge on one side and a hook on the other so you can cut weeds off and also dig them out using the hook side. This makes it great for getting all the roots out and preventing them growing back quickly.
As you can choose the handle size to use with the scraper you will find that you can use this nice and easily without the need to bend down at all so you won’t be affecting your back and causing yourself unnecessary pain.
I use this scraper with one of the longer handles and find it very easy to adjust the angle to suit your needs, this makes scraping out weeds and moss a pretty simple task.
Paths, patios, paving and along the edges of outside walls always look so much cleaner and tidier when all the weeds have been scraped out.
Another thing the scraper can be used for is scraping off the green algae build up you get along the edges of windows (especially greenhouse windows). You will obviously have to be careful when using it for this purpose as you don’t want to damage the rubber lining around some windows.

6. Half Moon Edger
Everyone loves a nice edge around their lawns, don’t they?
Whether the edge is next to a flower bed (border) or patio/path. It always looks so much better with a nice smart, tidy looking edge.
I love getting my Wolf Garten lawn edger out and making peoples lawns look awesome.
It cuts off overhanging grass or the edges of turf with ease and leaves the lawn looking lovely.
The scraper has a steel blade that is coated for rust prevention and like some other tools I have listed it has a self-sharpening blade so will be just as easy and good to use in years to come.
If just tidying up an existing edge then you can get straight to it with this lawn edger, but if putting a new edge onto the lawn then it’s advisable to put out a line to follow so that you keep the edge nice and straight.
I would recommend using the D-handle with the lawn edger tool head. You need to be able to grip the handle properly and be able to push down on it while also using your foot to push with. Using a straight handle would be making the job a lot harder than it should be.
The half moon lawn edger has a working width of 22.5cm.

7. Springtine Rake
The second rake in my list and that’s because of the versatility of the springtine rake.
Whereas the leaf rake is my favourite of the multi change Wolf Garten tool heads, the springtine rake head is also a very great and good quality rake head.
You can find out about other rakes by CLICKING HERE and reading my post The Best Rakes – What They’re Used For.
This rake head is brilliant for raking out thatch and moss from your lawn. Doing this every few weeks will help to keep your lawn in great shape.
The tines on this are strong and durable but will not dig into the lawn and damage it. It will just rake out the stuff you don’t want and leave your lawn looking healthier.
You can also use the springtine rake head for raking leaves (although it’s not as effective as the leaf rake) and for raking moss from your borders or harder surfaces like patios, paving and paths. Make sure not to exert too much downward pressure if using this way, as although the tines are robust you still don’t want to bend them out of shape and damage the rake head.
Fertilizer, compost and topsoil can be spread over beds and borders using this rake head.
The width of this springtine rake head is 50cm.

8. Weeding Tool
This weeding tool is a super tool for digging out those stubborn and deep-rooted weeds from your lawn or flower beds.
It’s a very easy tool to use and is very effective at getting weeds out with the whole root so they won’t just grow back.
I find this best to use on lawns. If you have dandelions growing on the lawn then this weeding tool will dig all of it out without damaging the lawn. You slide it into the lawn against the side of the dandelion and twist to the side for easy removal. The disturbed patch of lawn can then just be trodden down and you’ll never know where you’d taken it from.
The weeding tool has an integrated foot rest to help push it down fully for the really long and stubborn weeds like the dandelions.
It is made from great quality steel that is coated for rust prevention. It is very strong and durable and really makes removing stubborn weeds effortless.
The Wolf Garten weeding tool can be pushed into the soil to a depth of 41.5cm which is more than enough even for the really deep-rooted of weeds.
If your lawn is absolutely taken over by weeds (dandelions, daisies) then I would recommend using a weed killer that kills weeds and doesn’t damage the grass, but if you just get a few weeds coming through the lawn then I’d definitely recommend using this weeding tool.
I would recommend using the D-handle with this tool head, especially as you will find it a lot easier twisting with the D-handle then you would with a straight handle.

9. Dutch Hoe
The dutch hoe is a great tool head to have in the multi change range. It is designed to work just below the surface of the soil and cuts off the heads of weeds therefore stopping the sunlight getting to the rest left under the ground so it dies off. Note that this only works with some weeds. Weeds such as dandelions will still grow back if you only chop the top off. The way to get rid of these types of weeds is digging them out or using the weeding tool listed above.
The dutch hoe is made from one piece of stainless steel so it makes it very strong, robust and durable. It is also coated for rust prevention.
You can use this hoe by pushing and pulling it and the blade is sharp both sides.
This type of hoe is my favourite for general weeding and the one I use most often.
You can read my post on What Is The Best Hoe? My Top 5 Choices by CLICKING HERE.
Using one of the longer handles with this dutch hoe head is ideal for reaching to the back of beds and borders without having to walk on them. It is even great using a telescopic handle as this gives you even more reach and the chances are you can reach nearly everywhere.
If I had to recommend just one type of hoe for all round general weeding then this is the type I’d recommend.

10. Weeding Brush
This weeding brush is a great tool by itself or as a compliment to the scraper I listed at number 5 above.
This is used for clearing out weeds and moss from between paving, patios and any cracks in concrete.
I like this weeding brush a lot because it is easy to use and you can clear a lot in a short time.
I find this better to use on moss growing between block paving as it will clear the moss a lot quicker then the scraper will. It will clear the weeds also but it won’t get all the roots out like the scraper will.
The steel bristles on this weeding brush are very tough and can handle a lot of use. Just be careful when handling the brush head as it can quite easily stab into your hands and that is very painful. Believe me, I’ve done it more than once. DOH……
I recommend using one of the longer handles with this brush head as you won’t have to bend over and hurt your back. Also, with a longer handle it’s much easier to adjust the angle you want to work to make the weeding brush as efficient as possible.
If you have a block paved driveway or patio that gets a lot of moss growing between the cracks then I’d definitely recommend buying this weeding brush head (remember you’ll need to buy the handle separately), you won’t be disappointed.
In fact I’m pretty sure once you give it a try you’ll start to enjoy using it and before you know it you’d have cleared all the moss and be looking elsewhere for somewhere else to use it.
