I bent two prongs on my new Darby 4 prong pike while piking silage. Surly that's not right?
Bin it or bring it back?
Oh god here we go again. That's a 4 prong silage fork.
A bit of heat a few bangs of a hammer will straighten that.
That’d never happen to a grape
I bought one recently and exactly the same. Very little work and no wrecking done with it either. I straightened it with a vice grips.
I bent it back easy. But it is rubbish mild steel.
Twoud have been much stronger if it was a sprong you had purchased .
Bring it back - looks like that tine could snap off..
Get a 3 prong one. Will never get a 4 prong one again
Nor to a graip :D
Did you catch it on concrete floor or snag it on anything? If it was just from graiping silage then you're either a beast of a man or its piss poor quality. Whether I'd go back with it would depend on how much I paid and how close they are to me TBH. Otherwise, I'd just straighten it and carry on.
It should be tempered steel. No way it should bend that easy.

Happened to mine too few months old and no hardship. All hand tools past 5 years are rubbish and expensive. Modern spades are dogs of things
You'd be better off finding your old one and putting a new handle in it. Take that back to where you bought it and tell them it's not fit for purpose and ask for your money back. In the race to the bottom the quality simply isn't there anymore.
