What Does it Take?

How do you invent a tool to rip out English ivy?

The answer is: You Care. You spend a lot of time on it. Invest your life savings in it.

You do it because you care about how we humans have planted it and by letting it get away, have altered Phil uses the IVy Ripper to eliminate ivy permanentlyour landscapes, and you want to be a part of restoring them.

You do it because you’ve been out there on cold Saturday mornings with your neighbors cutting and pulling the ivy by hand and feeling the futility of trying to save trees.

You do it once and fail.

Do it again – and fail. And again… and keep that up until you learn how it has to work and what you have to grind, drill, mold, and cast to make the parts, one by one.

Then you assemble them, and you test and test.

You squeeze the costs wherever you can – and the time it takes to cast and finish the parts.

Some tests work better than others. Some parts break or clot up with dirt and twigs.

Some people who volunteer to test are more impressed than others. You write down their criticisms and try again.

                     And sometimes it just rains.

But eventually you get one that works – even works well. And you want to let the world know about it.

So now You can sign up on our  Contacts Page and get updates about the new Ivy-Ripper v. 14.2. And if you are in the Pacific Northwest (US), ask for a free demonstration.

Look Familiar?


This is How It Has Always Been Done: Turn out on Saturday, grab the loppers, bend over and pull, work till your back and knees hurt too much, then go home. You can make progress this way. But what if there was a better way?

We have one, and we’d be glad to show you. If you live in Oregon, Washington, or British Columbia, ask us for a free demonstration.
