BALTIMORE, MD, January 05, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ -- EarthLifter Tool, a New York based company, announced the launch of it's revolutionary new product at the MANTS 2022 Trade Show (Booth 1141). The EarthLifter Tool is constructed utilizing principles of physics that employs both a mechanical advantage and unique geometry. The Patent Pending design reduces the strain of outdoor work for professionals and home gardeners alike.
The EarthLifter Tool was nine years in development and prototyping. In 2012 the company founder, out of necessity from a significant hand injury and having studied Human Factors engineering, solved many digging issues with an ancient prime tool. The shovel and garden fork are the only large manual digging tools from that time still offered today. Both require two hands, involve precarious spinal postures, and work against gravity. Knowing that potatoes needed to be lifted from soil the inventor and company founder, Neil Bevilacqua, envisioned what the optimum geometry was to eliminate these difficulties. Over time and effort he created a tool that can be used with one hand, eliminates improper bending and twisting and uses the forces of gravity to lift with minimal effort. The EarthLifter Tool, a New Class of Tool, was born.
Features & Benefits
The innovative design of The Earth Lifter Tool achieves a minimum of a three-to-one weight ratio that allows nearly effortless lifting of plants and weeds. This unique fork with a special fulcrum controls the lifting of delicate vegetables, tubers and shrub root balls which can all be removed in a gentle manner. Because gardens are also filled with weeds and rocks The EarthLifter Tool was designed for real world conditions in the rugged Catskill Mountains' N.Y. soil. Currently made in upstate N.Y. from a stainless-steel frame, it is built to last a lifetime, and will retain its polished look. "We grow many varieties of potatoes, nineteen cultivars of garlic, and ornamental flowers . After experiencing hand and spine issues, I created this tool to enable myself and others to enjoy work again." Bevilacqua said.
The unique design aids in every digging chore. Professionals like landscapers, nursery growers, greenhouses operators, bulb growers and building and grounds workers will benefit from both productivity gains and enhanced safety for employees. Tilling soil and harvesting will now be easier than ever for anyone working in the field, regardless of body strength. These same features allow home gardeners and those that wish to be a safe and productive way to ensure food quality and security.
There are two versions of The EarthLifter Tool – The Garden Edition and the Pro Edition - with pricing and availability to be announced.
