I have used mine to break up compacted soils and lever glacial boulders the size of large watermelons out of the soil. These things are tough.

This looks very similar to the Meadow Creature one (which I bought and love).
Next to my grub hoe (from easydigging.com, natch) it's my favorite garden tool.

That is what I want!!! And then the price scares me
But considering it would take half the time to prepare the beds and half the time to lift roots crops.
I really should work up the nerve to buy one.

 It is the meadow creature one, also known as the Vashon Broadfork.  The logo is part way down the page in the link.   I would love to have someone in Vashon bring one of these up to me.  The shipping is crazy expensive outside of the continental U.S..
