U-Bar Broadfork SUB-9045
Special Mailing Requirments: The U-bar is too big to mail through the normal channels - call us before ordering for trucking quote. We are delighted to offer these legendary broadforks (or manual plows) as described in The Backyard Homestead. We use them in our gardens for quickly (and surprisingly easily) losening up established beds. This design is very ergonomic - using both hands and your body weight to rock back loosens the soil quite easily. The welder we use has had a modest business repairing broadforks-that-broke-down, and finally decided he should make one that would last. He spent months working with other master welders trying to make a broadfork that could be disassembled and shipped UPS, and there just doesn't seem to be any way to make a fork that is truly durable for the tasks it is called to do. We do not like the extra expense and hassle of shipping these by truck, but what you get is a monster of a fork. It is made from special steel that has strength and toughness to last forever. This sort of tool is meant to be a community resource and has the durability to fulfill this function. Allow 4-6 weeks for delivery. 6 feet, 8 inches long by 29" wide, with seven 18-inch tines. APPROX WEIGHT: 45 lbs.
