A pitchfork is an agricultural tool with a long handle and long, thin, widely separated pointed tines (also called prongs) used to lift and pitch (throw) loose material, such as hay, leaves, grapes, dung or other agricultural materials. Pitchforks typically have two or three tines. Other similar types of manure forks may have up to six tines with different lengths and spacing depending on purpose. They are usually made of steel with a long wooden handle, but may also be made from wood, wrought iron, bamboo, alloy etc. In some parts of England a pitchfork is known as a prong and, in parts of Ireland, a sprong refers to a 4 pronged pitchfork. The pitchfork is similar to the shorter and sturdier garden fork. They are aslo know as manure forks. For heavier use in your garden or small farm fields there is also a broadfork. Using a Broadfork the operator steps up on the crossbar, using full bodyweight to drive the tines into the ground, then steps backward while pulling backwards on the handles, causing the tines to lever upwards through the soil. This broadfork action leaves the soil layers intact, rather than inverting or mixing them, preserving the topsoil structure.

In Europe, the pitchfork was first used in the early Middle Ages, at about the same time as the harrow. The pitchfork was originally made entirely of wood; today, the tines are usually made of hard metal.

So many different uses and names, Pitchfork, Manure fork, Garden fork, Stonefork, Broadfork, and Super forks, comes in many size, widths, handle lenghts, and tines. So choose one or more of these made in american garden tools for all your farm and garden needs.
