A bolo (Tagalog: iták, Cebuano: súndang, Ilocano: bunén

g, Hiligaynon: binangon) is a large cutting tool
of Filipino origin similar to the machete. It is used
particularly in the Philippines, the jungles of Indonesia,
and in the sugar fields of Cuba.
The primary use for the bolo is clearing vegetation,
whether for agriculture[1][2] or during trail blazing. The bolo
is also used inFilipino martial arts or Arnis as part of

A mattock /ˈmætək/ is a versatile hand

tool, used for digging and chopping, similar
to the pickaxe. It has a long handle, and a
stout head, which combines an axe blade
and an adze (cutter mattock) or a pick and
an adze (pick mattock).
Grab Hoe

A farmer using a hoe to keep weeds down in a vegetable garden.

A hoe is an ancient and
versatile agricultural and horticultural hand tool used to shape
soil, remove weeds, clear soil, and harvest root crops. Shaping
the soil includes piling soil around the base of plants (hilling),
digging narrow furrows (drills) and shallow trenches for
planting seeds or bulbs. Weeding with a hoe includes agitating
the surface of the soil or cutting foliage from roots, and clearing
soil of oldroots and crop residues. Hoes for digging and moving
soil are used to harvest root crops such as potatoes.

Small spade for clay soil; the other one for sandy soil and loamy soil
A spade is a tool primarily for digging, comprising a blade –
typically narrower and less curved than that of a shovel – and a
long handle.[1] Early spades were made of riven wood or of
animal bones (often shoulder blades). After the art
of metalworking was developed, spades were made with sharper
tips of metal. Before the introduction of metal spades manual
labor was less efficient at moving earth, with picks being
required to break up the soil in addition to a spade for moving
the dirt. With a metal tip, a spade can both break and move the
earth in most situations, increasing efficiency.

A man carrying shovels

A shovel is a tool for digging, lifting, and moving bulk
materials, such as soil, coal, gravel, snow, sand, or ore.
Most shovels are hand tools consisting of a broad blade
fixed to a medium-length handle. Shovel blades are
usually made of sheet steel or hard plastics and are very
strong. Shovel handles are usually made of wood
(especially specific varieties such as ash or maple)
or glass-reinforced plastic (fibreglass).

Wooden hand-rake A heavy-duty "bow rake" for soil and

rock A light-duty "leaf rake" for leaves and grass.
A rake (Old English raca, cognate
with Dutch raak, German Rechen, from the root
meaning "to scrape together," "heap up") is
a broomfor outside use; a horticultural implement
consisting of a toothed bar fixed transversely to a
handle, and used to collect leaves, hay, grass, etc.,
and, in gardening, for loosening the soil,
light weeding and levelling, removing dead grass
from lawns, and generally for purposes performed in
agriculture by the harrow.
Garden fork or
Spading Fork
A garden fork, spading
fork, digging
fork or graip is a gardening
implement, with a handle
and several (usually four)
short, sturdy tines. It is used
for loosening, lifting and
turning over soil in
gardening and farming. It is
used similarly to a spade,
but in many circumstances it
is more appropriate than a
spade: the tines allow the
implement to be pushed more easily into the ground, it
can rake out stones and weeds and break up clods, it is not
so easily stopped by stones, and it does not cut through
weed roots or root-crops. Garden forks were originally
made of wood, but the majority are now made of carbon
steel or stainless steel.
Light Hoe.

Designed using the principles of

ergonomics and lightweight materials to
help reduce back strain and make easy
work of gardening, this hoe is great for
removing weeds and loosening soil.

An axe (British English) or ax (American English; see

spelling differences) is an implement that has been used
for millennia to shape, split and cut wood;
to harvest timber; as a weapon; and as
a ceremonial or heraldic symbol. The axe has many forms
and specialised uses but generally consists of an axe head
with a handle, or helve.
Hand Trowel

A hand trowel is a miniature version of a hoe,

but with a much smaller handle and a triangular
piece of metal attached. Because delicate plants
will require some gentle attention, a trowel can
be used to extract weeds instead of whacking
away at the area with a hoe. They can also be
used to pack dirt over seeds during planting.
Hand Cultivators

Hand cultivators...don’t let the smaller

size of these fool you, they’re just as
tough as the larger cultivators and can
work in those tighter areas that a longer
tool is just too awkward. Hand
cultivators are great for breaking soil and
weeding between plantings in your
Wheel Barrow

This equipment is used for hauling trash,

manures, fertilizers and other planting

It is rubber. The water watering can is made up

of a tank, perforated metal sheet over its mouth
which is a handle and a spout. This spout is long
with a referred to as the ROSE, but in case of the
rubber made watering can the mouth is covered by a
rubber. It is made up of galvanized iron which
prevents it from rusting. Some are also made of very
synthetic used to apply water to crops like seedlings
in a nursery and vegetables.


A knife (plural knives) is a tool with a cutting edge

or blade, hand-held or otherwise, with most having a
handle. Some types of knives are used as utensils,
including knives used at the dining table (e.g., butter
knives and steak knives) and knives used in the kitchen
(e.g., paring knife, bread knife, cleaver). Many types of
knives are used as tools, such as the utility knife carried
by soldiers, the pocket knifecarried by hikers and
the hunting knife used by hunters.

A sprayer is a device used to spray a liquid.

In agriculture, a sprayer is a piece of equipment that

is used to apply herbicides, pesticides, and fertilizers on
agricultural crops. Sprayers range in size from man-
portable units (typically backpacks with spray guns) to
trailed sprayers that are connected to a tractor, to self-
propelled units similar to tractors, with boom mounts of
60–151 feet in length.
