    Spading forks and pitchforks look similar, but they’re not the same. A pitchfork is designed to handle loose materials such as hay, whereas a spading fork is designed for digging. In fact, a spading fork is much better at penetrating the ground than a regular spade. When purchasing a spading fork, you need one that is tough and extremely durable, built to withstand collisions with roots and buried rocks. The tines should be made of carbon steel or stainless steel and be flat, but the tips should be sharp. A long steel shaft that is firmly attached to the tines, a comfortable handle, and an ergonomic design that serves to reduce fatigue and strain are the best features for those harder tasks.
