"I have to assume the first reviewer is not personally using the tool. The handle is a hybrid of hardwood wrapped in fiberglass. I use my Bully Tools on our farm and can see they are engineered to solve the points of failure of other tools. I challenge the first reviewer to try to break the handles of the hybrid handles of Bully Tools."

"Wonderful product for prepping the raised beds with minimal effort! Anxious to use this at drip lines of all fruit trees and 40 blueberry bushes when the weather permits. Already shared with gardening friends the advantages I realize with only a few hours work. Thanks!"

"I received my broadfork for christmas and I can honestly say after 40 years of gardening this tool is fantastic. I used to use a mantis tiller and this does a much better job without the hassle of another gas engine to run. I have a 36' green house and now I can maintain the beds without running a gas engine in the enclosure. It is really is a must for anyone who is serious about gardening. I am just beginning to find out all it's uses. It is well built and heavy, so lifting up will help build your upper body strength. Happy tilling, Ed From Oregon"

"It was very hard to get the feeling of trying to turn the broadfork after using a spading fork but after using the broadfork it was very easy after that and would recommend it for old ground."

"Attention needed to the diameter of the handles which did not fit the holes in the fork that were supposed to hold them. So we chiseled the handles down. We haven't gotten the fork into the dirt yet as time ran out working on the handles."

"This is a Walmart-quality tool. In other words, yes, it is half the price of a decent tool, but it won't last one hundredth as long. Fiberglass handles? Are you kidding me?"
