This is the heavy duty version of our broadfork range. Choose between Five or Seven heavy duty tynes. The broad fork is a specialized tool for re-working existing garden beds allowing deep cultivation of the soil without excessive mixing or damage to the soil profile. It features a heavy duty tubular frame which supports five or seven large tines, each 120 mm apart and 350 mm deep. By standing on the cross bar, the operator drives the tines deep into the soil. Then stepping back off the cross bar, you lean back pulling on both handles to draw the tines through the soil profile. Both operations use the body weight to power the movement of the tool. The tynes are laser cut from 6mm Bissalloy (hardened and tempered plate) 350mm deep and tapers from 40mm down to a fine sharpened point. The 5 tyne version has a 470mm working distance ( between outside tynes), while the 7 tyne version is 680mm. The 7 tyne version is ideal for 30inch or 750mm wide beds. Custom widths available on request. The handles are heavy duty steel tube with extra re-enforcement. They are offset by 25 degrees from the blade angle to improve leverage when pulling back. Weighs 8kg or 11kg.
