I didn’t use it on Paspalum at all so I couldn’t tell you sorry.

I don't understand how this works. I have tried using it as the video shows, place the prongs over the centre of the weed, push right in using the foot bar and then lever the handle towards you, but I can't seem to get the root. When you look at it (not weeding), the prongs only come together to grasp when the footbar is pulled towards you, is that what levering the handle towards you activates? is there a knack to this?

Yes to both. 1.place the prongs over the centre of the weed (works best on tap root weeds). 2. place your foot on the footplate and push straight down (i.e not at an angle, you want the handle to be completely forward at this stage) until prongs are totally immersed.in the soil. 3. Take your foot off footplate and pull handle back towards you. The footplate then acts like a lever against the ground as the prongs come together to grip and hold on to the weeds.works best on medium to large weeds. If you have wet sticky soil it can remove a lot of the soil,as well. In that situation I leave the pulled weeds to sit in the sun a couple of days for the soil to dry out then shake the soil of before I bin the weeds. Once you get the knack of it you will start to blitz along. Good luck.

I think Louse has the answer there for you Mr. Gamer. Put the tool in as deep as you can and make sure its completely perpendicular to the ground. Push in firmly. You can leave your foot on the end of the plate to secure it as you pull towards you. It may even tighten the grip of the prongs on the centre of the taproot weed. Maybe it takes a little practice to get better at it. The placement right over the centre of the root is important so as to surround it with the open prongs. Its a breeze when you compare to all other tools or methods... Cheers...!!

Love my friskar., but lately when lifting out a tough weed, the handle pops out. Why is this?

Can't help you Toots, sorry. I have never experienced that problem so some part of the mechanism must be worn or faulty.

When you insert the prongs with downward pressure from your foot, the next thing to do is just lever the long handle towards yourself, like a rocking motion, and never try to pull it up vertically. If your problem continues call the manufacturer or talk to the place of purchase, mine has been rock solid and works perfectly, you could have something wrong although the mechanics is very simple. I hope you are not putting excessive pressure on it ? ...... Keep trying and good luck !

Take it back to bunnings Patrick, perhaps there is something jamming the mechanism. I have totally flogged mine and have had no problem with it jamming. Good luck with it.
