How the Treadlite Broadfork is Made...

The Treadlite Broadfork Head:

  • Lightest Broadfork in it's class

    • Care has been taken to use the highest grade materials from Gr 80 HSLA Steel Tines, ASTM A519 Tubing and Chromoly Tubing (think NASCAR roll cage) we have sourced some of the highest grades available to provide flawless operation for years to come.

Treadlite Broadfork - Building a broadfo
  • "Through Tube" Technology

    • Provides superior strength as the socketed handle mount is inserted through the tube rather than relying on welds alone.

    • Does not allow moisture build-up in the tube or socket ensuring your handles will remain dry and not rot over time. 


  • Geometric design

    • The handle socket that goes through the step tube creates a stronger joint on the Treadlite Broadfork.  The socket weld is almost unnecessary unlike other broadforks on the market that could fail over time due to a reliance on welds.


  • Made in America

    • Cut, welded and painted in Wisconsin




The Handles:

  • Wood Handles are milled from straight grain North American White Ash

    • Harvested by a family logging business in Eastern Maine

    • Same as the bats in the major leagues due to durability, strength, and lightweight


  • Steel handles are made from high strength chromoly steel

    • Same as used in race cars for its strength and lightweight  



  • All are 48" length

    • Great leverage in a compact package



  • Grade 80 steel provides maximum toughness and corrosion resistance

    • Made from the same steel as our military Humvee replacements


  • Powder coat finish

    • Protects your tool year after year


  • Round step tube

    • Provides a continuous surface on which to apply force at any angle


  • Tine lengths are true 12" actual length from the step tube
