Whilst digging in the garden using a traditional garden fork, I felt the task was laborious and back straining, after trying different methods and even a rotovator and tiller none served their purpose as well as they should have. I simply applied Archimedes law of levers to the garden fork and spade design, which hasn't changed since time itself, I took my idea to a local blacksmith who was just as crazy as myself, fabricated the design. After much initial research and development by me, the result was Kikka Digga. The name came about when I used to ride motor-scooters, the kick start method!
