Lightweight Poly Fork

A.M. Leonard introduced the new all-poly scoop fork, a lightweight alternative to steel scoop forks. It weighs 4 pounds, 25 percent lighter than many steel forks, while remaining tough and durable enough to provide many years of service. Ideal for tackling pond debris, water-soaked soil, hay, mulch, compost, manure and leaves, it is tough enough to survive being run over by a truck. It features all-poly construction with eight beveled tines. The fork offers an average 1 3/8-inch tine spacing, similar to the company's forged steel fork. The poly handle has a comfortable feel, and the 1 3/8-inch diameter grip is textured for slip resistance. The poly fork's handle length of 30 inches provides good reach and balanced control. The head measures 14.5 inches by 15 inches. The overall length is 44.5 inches.
