As another Sam above, I am a college student and trail builder. My club builds trails in Central NY in mixed hardwood and softwood forests. As mentioned above, a McLeod is great for pulling back soft loam but is hindered greatly by roots. The McLeod works best (at least in the Northeast) when working soil that has already been broken up by a mattock or pulaski. It more of a shaping tool than a cutting tool. When I go out by myself I take a McLeod and either a cutter mattock or pick mattock. PERFECT for building berms, whoops, rollers, jumps, and landings to features.

This is the workhorse of my mountain bike club's trail building efforts. It doesn't do well in soil full of big roots, but for pulling back loam or working in evergreen forests this tool is awesome. If I go out by myself and can only carry one tool on my bike, I take a McCleod.

With only 4 uses the handle broke while tamping straight down an obvious flaw. The head of the tool is fine although a bit small. With such a flimsy handle this tool can not be recommended.
