Introduction of potato forks
Potatoes, radishes, sweet potatoes and other plants all need to be collected and sorted one by one with digging tools. What most gardeners must admit is that the potato fork is really a very convenient digging tool. It can be inserted directly from the soil to the plant you want to dig, and then gently lift it. Autumn is a harvest season to celebrate, but when you encounter plants planted in the ground, harvesting is indeed time-consuming and laborious. This article mainly introduces the composition of potato fork in order to promote the understanding of such a digging tool.

This traditional potato fork

This traditional potato fork is not only convenient for gardeners to harvest potatoes, but also plays a great role in harvesting many other vegetables and provides gardeners with great convenience. Traditional potato forks are not sharp, and generally will not cause damage to opponents and children, so they can be used with confidence.

Sharp teeth

Traditional potato forks generally have 9 pointed and unsharp teeth. When you lift the potato from the ground, this will allow the tines to pass through instead of the potato. In addition, too many tines means that there will be fewer small potatoes pulled out of the soil, which is also a thing that gardeners dislike.

Solid sleeve

A solid sleeve means that the blade and tines are manufactured together as a whole. The strong tines are forged from a single piece of steel. The craftsmen will fix the two steel belts on the wooden shaft with rivets, so that they will be strong and durable.


You want to make sure that the joints on the steel forks are of high quality. The material of the steel fork should be a good metal joint, and no water is allowed in the weld. The entry of water will directly cause the steel fork to rust and cause various problems. These problems must be avoided in the use of excavating tools. So it is recommended not to break any seams. While welding steel forks, the weld must look complete and as smooth as possible to make sure the usable time of the tool.
The handle of the potato fork should be equipped with a soft handle and a wide-angle support pad. The shape can be determined by the gardeners, and it can be D-shaped or T-shaped. Many gardeners are looking for soft and comfortable grips, in order to improve the comfort of their hands when digging, so as not to be so tired.
