  1. Gary D. Smith

    Works well for the price. Be sure to put a sharper edge on it first because it is shipped a tiny bit dull and won’t cut as easily if it is not super sharp. But worked fine for me once it was sharp. Did a rather large area in 2 days. Moved sod from the back yard to the front. Once sod was cut in to manageable parts, I placed them on a tarp to move them easily.

  2. Kevin

    The tool worked as expected. Still manual labor involved, however it was better than using a shovel for removing sod for our new planters.

  3. Jim H.

    NOTE: This is a sod lifting and removal tool. It does not cut the sod. You will need a different tool to cut the sod before using this tool.

    The Bully Tool is well made and it will likely last my lifetime. Using hand tools to DYI cut and move Texas clay soil sod is not an easy job. This tool makes it easier. The trick is to first cut strips of sod the width of the Bully Tool blade, Then, cut the strip of sod into squares. Insert the Bully Tool blade vertically into the cut row and center the blade with the sod square. Angle the front side of the sod up to release and cut the grass roots. Once the front is lifted, angle and push the blade further underneath the sod. If necessary, wiggle the blade to cut additional roots. The sod will separate from the ground. Repeat with the rest of the squares. I found it best to stand and cut from the uncut sod side.

    Importantly, to make this work you need to cut the squares with an edger tool. Once the squares are cut, the Bully Tool lifts and separates the grass into very manageable plugs to plant elsewhere.

  4. James Sanders

    I had a 700 sq. ft. area of thick thatched zoysia I needed to remove to start a patio garden. I delineated squares of the sod approx 16″x16″ and removed them with the sod lifter. I kept the cutter filed sharp and worked when the soil was moist (not wet or dry) and working three or four hours at a time, cleanly removed it all. I’m 68 years old, about 155 lbs. Takes determination but the tool is sturdy and up to the task.

  5. Cindy Brown

    Since this is my first ‘sod lifter’, I can’t compare it to any others. However, it definitely lifts sod as described, seems well made, and has already paid for itself. Definitely easier than using a spade or a mattock. It helps to have the sod moist and I still used my spade to ‘section’ the sod before lifting. Don’t buy this expecting sod lifting to become magically effortless, it’s still work! But my back appreciated the difference.

  6. Johnny Ryall

    Works great! I actually found it most comfortable to face away from the sod and use it backwards between my legs. I know sounds and probably looks funny but allows you share the workout between both shoulders. I worked in 1′ x 3′ strips, precutting the edges with a flat spade. Best manual sod removal tool around. I did sharpen the edge with a file before getting to work.

  7. Chi Politico

    I was on the fence about hiring a landscaping crew to remove a strip of grass from along my driveway and sidewalk. When the estimates came back over $700 this tool became a lot more reasonably priced. I finished the job in less than four hours. You definitely want to use it to first cut your turf into manageable squares or rectangles, then cut them out by slicing and prying under the squares/rectangles. Don’t just try to start slicing into the ground and lifting up the grass, its a fruitless method. For my application I just needed to turn the grass upside down, not remove it. We are covering the strip with wood chips and will be planting natives later once the area settles.

  8. Steve Blumberg

    Easy to use to lift sod. It’s best to cut the sod into small sections – maybe 18 inch squares. I have lifted old sod (weeds, actually) from the ground in order to plant Zoysia sod. This took makes the process pretty easy – even for an old man, like myself.

  9. MikeyrInJeff

    Excellent tool for lifting and removing sod. We wanted to create some new planter beds and that required me to remove the sod where the beds were to be located. I found that if I made cuts with a shovel to create sections, this sod lifter really does the job right. We are happy with our new planter beds and this Bully tool helped make this possible…

  10. toshiue

    One tool that will definitely never break, but comes with a dull edge (as it should). Takes quite a bit of time to put an edge on this thing given the inherent awkwardness and blade thickness. Other than that, made with a serious intent.

  11. J W

    Very useful once you figure out the most optimal way to use it. You should precut your squares with a square headed shovel. Don’t make the squares too large, maybe 2’x2′ maximum. Then start to slide the sod lifter with a forceful motion underneath it. Once you get the hang of it it works very well. It would also help significantly if you sharpen it before hand.
