The mattock has one face at right angles to the shaft and one face vertical. Used for grubbing out, removing tree roots and a variety of similar applications. The head (available separately), simply slides on or off and is locked by the handle's taper.

Fathfull Mattock HeadI purchased this tool for a specific hard landscaping job I had in mind and found it great! Far easier to use and less tiring than a full size pick it is just the job for light ground preparation, grubbing up rocks, old tree roots and the like. No tool shed should be without this simple but effective tool.
