The broadfork is the perfect tool to start the season strong. Soil has microorganisms and bacteria that are necessary for crop growth and the broadfork loosens and aerates the soil without turning it over. It does not destroy the living micro-organisms and bacteria. Compared to the traditional spade or fork, which do not allow for this precision and clean work, the broadfork is the solution to start working the soil and prepare the land for the season. It is used at its full power when it is pushed vertically into the ground, then bring the handles towards you, while moving back a step to finally move the handles from left to right to break up the clods of earth. It works on the principle of a lever, which makes it very easy to use.
Dubois Agrinovation manufactures its broadforks in two models: the standard unreinforced broadfork and the reinforced broadfork.
Both models are hardened with galvanized steel, which provides superior life and corrosion resistance to extend the life of your tool. Compared to popular models, Dubois Agrinovation's broadfork does not require painting for protection and offers exceptional reliability. Galvanized steel requires little maintenance and long-term costs compared to stainless steel which does not offer all these considerable advantages.
Note that for clay soils, we offer the Heavy Duty 4-tooth broadfork.Read More
