It's a great fork, the forged diamond shaped tines are close enough to pick up smaller pieces. Especially in paddocks where the long grass breaks the plastic forks. However, it's just too heavy for women and children to use for any length of time. Perhaps if it had an aluminum handle. I returned mine. Too bad. I really liked it's robustness. (AMF10L)
This is a well made tool, but too heavy for me except for limited use. The strong young men in the family love it. (AMF10L)
The fork itself is decent quality, but strenuous to use for a length of time at 7lbs. vs. many other brands weighing in at 4-5lbs.
We have in the past used different makes of this fork. We found the Leonard Fork stands up better where the fork and handle meet than other forks.
