The broadfork is a gardening tool that is widely used in Europe and is growing in popularity in the USA. Broadforks are excellent for breaking open compacted soils deeper than with a rototiller or a spade. This tool will deeply aerate your soil, increase water percolation, and preserve soil structure.
In comparison, a rototiller pulverizes soil into a fine dust that compacts and hardens after the first rains. The 12” tines are 2” longer than the main competitor’s broadforks.
Our broadfork weighs less than 20 lbs. making it easy to carry and maneuver in the garden than heavier broadforks. 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.
- ¼” Thick tempered steel tines. We've put these tines to the ultimate test. Even in roots, rocks, and clay they're nearly impossible to bend.
- Weighted & Balanced For All Day Use - our broadfork is designed with the average gardener in mind, we could have made it bigger, but ultimately we wanted you to be able to easily use it all day.
- 13" Long Tines - The perfect length for aerating your garden soil. Tines longer than 12" make the tool hard to use for average sized gardeners.
- 1½" Wide Square Treadbar - Making a square treadbar (round steel is very slippery, especially in the mud) creates a more stable place for you to stand. 1½" is plenty wide for your feet to be comfortable, secure, & stable.
- 48 inch long handles are steel. Detachable, comes with pins to hold in place.
- Balanced design, stout metal handles, reinforced tines, and a wider treadbar - a tool that is easy to handle, extremely durable, totally reliable, and far easier on your body to use.
- Human powered, no smelly fumes, no jolting noise, no pollution, & it saves earthworms.
- Proudly Made in the U.S.A. - Hand made in Grass Valley, CA.
- Heavy Duty
