Hoe. Rake. Scrape. Pick. When you need to do it all and have it done yesterday, reach for the ProHoe 70AR Travis.

Still a tool to rule them all. The handle is a bit fragile though. Broke on the 2nd build day. Don't use it to chop wood, or maybe that was the straw that broke the camels back. Worked great up until then for chopping out ferns, clearing Oregon grape and silal as well as digging and sculpting. The pick is good for rocks too?
It's building season in Washington and working with this is a treat. Awesome clearing out lines in raw trail. It destroys ferns, silal, and other brush swiftly and handles small to medium stumps with ease. The small pick end is good for prying and the large for chopping roots. I was surprised at how effective the rake side was too. I even used it to chop thumb sized limbs off without leaving pungi sticks, after lending my saw out.
Get or make a cover for it (doubles as a seat cover to keep your seat dry) and pack it where ever you want. Oh, get the long handle too.....you can always choke up. It would be cool to see this as a Trailboss head, as those are pretty slick with the way they pack down (crazy expensive though), but I wonder if the head would be too heavy for the modular Trailboss handle....?
Overall really impressed. It was nice to not have to switch out tools while cutting in freshly flagged trail through the brush. I usually end up using a grub hoe or pickaxe along with a rake and whatever else. Super nice to be able to leave all that under the tool cache tarp stashed in the woods and not have to haul a bunch of stuff around to go build or end up breaking something by using it not for it's intended purpose.
Totally worth the money if you dig. Doubles as a garden tool in the summertime too!
The tool is perfect for medium digging for shaping a biking or hiking trail and it’s versatile multi edges are very useful for different task. The handle seems strong but will see how it holds up in time.
