I've got a fork and spade as well, they are supposed to make digging easier. Originally made in France they were marketed over here. You push the tool in, press the lever and it's supposed to flip the soil up.... Never used them a Merry Tiller was less than half the effort!

One of my Terrex tools has a broken small spring - I wonder if he would supply a replacement.... I'll have to ask!

I see one of the spades went for a few quid on our favourite auction website recently, still cheaper than buying new one !!

MR Mackellow

Pleased to say I have used Wolf Spades  for years , they are easier on the back than ordinary spades . I have one that belonged to my father who was the only person I knew with one , and a new one I bougt around 15 years ago . This one is lying broken on the shed floor . The front  spring , the   flat  bar that links the spade, and the handle  broke around the  bolt hole. This seems to be common as  my fathers had failed in the same way at sometime. The metal is hardened so re drilling  is a specialist job  Back Savers still keep spares for them , and they do work . WithPetrol at 6 a gallon, will the Merry Tiller be as easy now ?

even the worst 2cv is 1000 times better than british crap called rover, the alternator belt just broke and wrapped itself round the cambelt, result? 1 scrap diesel engine and car! i wouldnt mijnd but had onlyjust paid 400 2ooo miles previous to have the cambelt changed. sorry to take over a thread, i just wanted a good moan!who says british is best? Just when you think life cant get worse somebody comes and gives you a good kick-in!

Perhaps you need a Terrex spade to beat it with, Basil Fawlty style !!

Hello All,  I purchased one of these Terrex spades complete with a fork attachment brand new for my father in c1970. He is now 82 and still digs his vegetable garden over with it each winter. I would recommend these to anyone who suffers difficulties with either back or leg problems which is why this one was purchased. They are definately easier to use after the instructions have been read and the useage of the spade practised.-- Steve.
