I work with the DTV volunteers in the forest of dean. We want to get some McLoed tools for trail building and maintenance. I can't find any suppliers in the UK so have been looking to the US. The only way to get some over here is to ship some which would be expensive for a small number.

Does anybody know where we can get some here?

    60 pahnds though!

    Ours are all custom made, think they're a cheap longhandled shovel with the end cut off and welded back on. Obviously not everyone can do that but might be worth asking around your builders to see if you've got any welders.
