Meet the inventor

Laurie Buckingham

Laurie is wrought iron metal worker with more than 40 years experience in creating functional and decorative items ranging from trailers and tractor-hitches to gates, weathervanes and fireguards. 

While absent-mindedly playing with a length of stainless steel rod in his workshop one day, Laurie felt that he was making something to help with the gardening.

Although he wasn’t sure exactly what, he began to bend the rod this way and later reflected that he felt like the design was being ‘downloaded’ into his brain… and that he simply fashioned the design from the steel.

Laurie began using the new device in his own garden and was surprised by how many different jobs it could do. It felt so easy – like an extension of his own arm. The design has since benefitted from a few tweaks and refinements including the ‘hook’ in the blade, to help snag those tricky deep roots.

The family nicknamed it ‘dad’s handy hoe’ until a friend said, “Well Bucko, it looks like you’ve designed a Buckhoe!” – and the name stuck.
