The Faithfull Countryman Turfing Iron is a specialist tool and is designed to facilitate the lifting of turf. A flat heart shaped blade is positioned at an angle to the long handle, so that it can be pushed along the ground under each cut turf. By using a back and forth motion, the flat blade will cut through the soil and roots to produce a smooth surface that makes it much easier to reuse the turf elsewhere.
Made from heat-treated (hardened) carbon steel to provide both strength and durability. Powder-coated finish provides improved resistance to rust, scratches, humidity and alkaloids in the soil. Fitted with an ergonomically designed, European Ash, T-grip handle, supplied from FSC® sustainable resources and lacquered for protection against the weather. The handle has been designed to reduce fatigue and back strain and is an indispensable aid when lifting turf to be moved and re-laid.
The Countryman Range has been designed for the gardener who requires a tool they can rely on to provide years of dependable service.
