This great tool is the perfect thing to use to break snow off of bushes and saplings. It knocks the snow off without damaging the branches. And it is light so there is less chance of breaking limbs.
Purchased as an alternative to the steel tine fork I had used for years. The Poly Scoop Fork is really light weight, but scoops much more mulch than my steel tine scoop. It saves me time and is much easier to use. I've been very pleased and would highly recommend to anyone that moves a lot of mulch!
perfect for moving mulch-light weight,tapered tines,sturdy handle
Appealing design, weight, functionality and guarantee. has sufficiently meet all of my needs so far in first year of use - mulch, leaf piles. Not made for fine material management.
I bought this to use with a 3-bin compost setup in our garden and found it works best with dry, very light material. Wet saw dust, leaves, grass clippings,etc. cause the tines to bend rather than dig in making it awkward to use. Also, it fades fairly quickly if left outside which I hope is only cosmetic and doesn't effect the plastic.
Excellent fork for working with compost, mulch and soil. Built solid and strong and no need to store inside because it will NEVER RUST!
This Fork was great for mulch! We have already used ours many times and we just got it a few weeks ago. It also works like a rake in a pinch. Great product
I bought it because my wife has occasional back issues and I thought the light weight fork would be easier to handle without giving up any capacity. So far so good.
I bought this fork mainly for use in fall leaf cleanup, but it can be used in many ways. It's very well built and sturdy, with a good tine spacing to clean up coarse material. Tines are thick, strong, don't puncture and collect many leaves, and they are actually aligned horizontally, so none are higher or lower than the others and won't dig into the ground or make 'skippers'. The handle is nice-sized to fit your hands. It's cupped shape and width allow picking up more volume/load. It is heavier than I expected, tho' not excessively, but the weight actually allows you to drag the tines vertically over the ground, so as to 'rake', and the fork doesn't bounce. The main disadvantage of this fork is cost; it's alot of money to 'fork over' (pun intended) for what it is, but if you do buy one, you'll be glad you did. It beats a standard pitchfork or ensilage fork.
We have used our Poly Scoop Fork and love it. We use it for mulching plant material. It is easy to use because it is so light weight. We like that it is weather proof as well.
We just put your new Poly Scoop Fork to the test in our compost pile and it came out with flying colors (orange). We were concerned that the fork would be too light, but the sharp tongs allow easy access to compost materials, and its light weight allows for less exertion. The fork is strong so we have had no problems in using it in heavy lifting situations.
