Are replacement handles available?

For Rockforge 5 lb. pick, wooden handle.
Asked by: Danmla
Yes. The replacement from Home Depot is manufactured by True Temper but it fits into the head of this tool.

How long is the Manufacturer Warranty on this?

It not listed on this site and the actual product said nothing on the handle sticker.
Asked by: JackK
NO warranty! Nada! Wood breaks and you are on your own. Answering my own question after talking to return desk at Home Depot.

Customer Reviews

5 lb. Pick Mattock with Wooden Handle is rated 2.3 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Strong handle, WEAK head. I used this pick mattock (pick ax) for about 10 minutes in soft soil with 1/2 to 1-inch thick roots. The head bent to the point where the tool is unusable in just that 10 minutes. I hit no rocks, no large tree roots, no clay, just a couple of grape vine roots that were at most 1-inch diameter. The price for this tool is outrageous given the very, VERY low quality and strength of the metal. Spend a few more dollars and get a real, hand-made steel head. The handle is strong (as far as I can tell from 5-10 minutes of use) and a good length, but the most important part of the tool is far too weak and cheap for a thirty dollar tool. I'd rather spend double and get something that is strong and durable. I would NOT recommend this for use in normal soil with thumb-width roots. For use in sand, it's probably fine...but so is your foot at that point!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Snapped in half I wouldn't recommend this axe. Handle snapped half during first use. Was attempting to dig under a root. Ax never hit anything of resistance.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from If you really need a pick, buy some other brand. Broke the handle first time out prying on roots less than 1" in diameter, and in soft dirt. I only weigh 150# and didn't think I was really working it that hard. I notice there is no manufacturer's warranty. I suppose they have their reasons.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from absolute junk It broke within 5 minutes of light use. What a waste of money.
Date published: 2016-05-03
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Junk...just junk I bought one of these in the morning, and by lunch I needed to return it. The handle broke when I tried to pry a root up. The store associate said that Home Depot could only do a one-for-one exchange. They did let me pay the extra $5 for the fiberglass handled version. How is it possible that my dad can still use his wood handled pick after 20 years, but mine broke in a matter of hours? It's a case of "they just don;t make them like they used to".

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Worked well for a few hours... I purchased this to help remove the roots of about 30 bushes that sat between my back yard and my neighbor's. I used this along with a shovel to remove most of them and it worked well. It felt nice to swing, cut roots with one side and the pick on the other side allowed me to get into the dirt behind the roots and pull through them. When I tried to pull through some of the roots on the last stump, the attached picture was the result. I purchased this for $25 and it broke before I'd used it for 5 hours. You can buy a replacement handle for $13 but if I could go back in time to when I made the original purchase, I'd spend an extra $5 and get model with the fiberglass handle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from if you know how to use a tool this is a good one used the rockforge pick mattock for over 1 year. handle length is perfect and much better than most in the market. if you use the tool to dig, this tool is as durable as it can get but if used to pry and lever you can end up bending the tool.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Handle broke Handle broke within 4 months of purchase. Broke prying concrete block out of ground; nothing extreme.
