I ride horses.
I have the strength to haul hay.
I have the guts to yell at a half-ton animal after being stepped on.
You will not be a problem.
The 10 tines of this heavy-duty fork make all the difference in stable cleaning. Other pitch forks have too much space between the tines to be effective and the plastic 'stable forks' don't have the strength to deal with muddy messes.
But it's not just useful around the barn--there is nothing better for digging and laying mulch and if you are trying to remove old, packed leaf litter, you know that a normal leaf rake doesn't cut it. This fork gets under the layers and lifts it out with ease. It does a great job adding peat and other such products to garden soil also.
I'm on my second one after 20 years of hard work and expect 20 years out of this one. Highly recommended for many jobs around the yard and farm.
