BROADFORK

Choose a model

     Broadforks are excellent for breaking open compacted soils deeper than a rototiller or a spade. The 12” tines are 2” longer than the main competitor’s broadforks. You don’t have to sink them down to the tread bar, but you can. It is best to broadcast compost and soil amendments prior to broadforking, as the amendments will trickle down into the cracks. This is especially useful for rock phosphate, since phosphorus is leached very slowly.
     Stout wooden handles, stiffer tines, and a wider treadbar make for a tool that is durable, reliable, and easier on your body.

            The ˝” tines are reinforced with 3/16" welded steel gussets. These strengthened tines are much more resistant to bending than most broadfork tines. On our least expensive model the four 5/8" tines are quite stiff, but if bent can be straightened by slipping a pipe over the tine.  

          The tines are turned to a point instead of cut at an angle. This reduces resistance. All 3 models are 24” wide overall. The 4 tines models have tines 5.5” apart, so the tine width is 16.5”. The five tine model has 4.5" between tines, so the tine width is 18”.

            Four tines are recommended for heavier soils. The 4 tine with ˝ “ tines (#1) is the easier to insert into the soil.

            The handles are ash post hole digger handles, 1˝" in diameter. Replacement handles are widely available for about $10 each.

HEAVY HOE

heavyhoe1.jpg

cimg1631.jpg
     The heavy hoe is great for grubbing large weeds in tight spaces. We fabricated a special socket end for a 60 inch eye hoe handle, to which you can attach a 5” blade assembly or 3 or 4 tine cultivator. This is a heavy hoe that digs in easily. It is not as easy to lift as a conventional stirrup hoe, but the hoeing itself is a lot easier. Cuts on push stroke and pull stroke. Works best with sharpened blade. This heavy hoe out-performs grubbing hoes, but for larger areas the wheel hoe requires much less effort.
