At least not in Woodinville. The sales dude said the buyer wasn't going to be buying them again. :madman: Capitalism in action, I guess.

I found a grape hoe that'll work for gardening purposes but it's way too light to be a real trail tool.

Bummer.

And they will not special order them?

I have alway bought mine from Terra Tech in Eugene, when I lived there. Still using my 20 year old Macleod.

Considering how much McClendon's was charging for McLeods, might not be A bad thing. Much cheaper to find some online even with shipping.

Check out Ben Meadows (online) for tools. They seem to have good prices and great customer service. They mailed me a new Pulaski after one of our guys busted it. No questions asked. (It was less than a year old.)

I also recommend Ben meadows. Bought a rogue, forestry shovel and mcLeod. If anyone is committed to McClendons though the one in Kent has a USFS mcleod for close to $100. It has been sitting there for years so you could probably talk them down. Hmm that's not a bad idea, I might try that. Forget what I said! Definitely no mcleods there!

Highly recommend rogue hoes as well. I personally use the curved hickory handle on a pick hoe head (60A).

I have the 70HR54 and it's quite good.
Yah, that's the one I've got picked out, only in fiberglass along with a couple of buckets from Ben.

It looks like the best of a McCleod and a grub hoe.

I just don't think McCleod's are quite heavy enough to chop with, and my pulaski's getting kind of worn. :p

We have a Mcleod for you then! My buddy made a few using thick steel plate, sharpened one edge and put tines on the other end. It like swinging a 15lb tamper with a cutting edge! We use it for the heavy chopping and cutting in new ground and makes a great tamper too.
