Shaft only of Wooden Snath

From £40.00

Just need the “stick” of the snath?

Accidents do happen and snaths occasionally get broken (we’ve known one that got reversed over by a pickup!).

You can order a snath without grips or a clamp if you just need a replacement for the main shaft – the grips and clamp can be transferred across from your old to your new snath.

PLEASE NOTE the following product changes that might affect what you need to order:

  • circa 2017 Fux brought the manufacturer of snaths in house – the upper grips of the old Swiss snaths are not compatible with the newer Fux made snaths. If you are not sure which one you have, please check with us before ordering.
  • End 2020 Fux are no longer adding the plastic guard to the end of the snath shaft, leading to a redesign of the clamp to fit (see here for details). Older style clamps will not fit the plastic free snaths so you may need to order an new clamp if ordering a replacement.

Which snath length do I need?

Snaths are available in four lengths. The length needed depends on your height.

Your Height———-Snath Number

Less then 5ft ———Size 1
5ft – 5ft 10————-Size 2 (150cm)
5ft 8 – 6ft 4————Size 3 (160cm)
6ft 4 and taller——–Size 4

Once the correct length has been chosen, the scythe can be fine tuned using the adjustable handle positions on the snath such that the set up suits your height and mowing style.

A Child’s snath can be supplied with a short right hand grip to make set up easier for a child’s shorter stature.

People who are at the edge of the height range may not be sure which snath length to choose.

If your legs are long in proportion to your body length you should choose the longer snath. If they are short in proportion to your body length choose the shorter snath. This should give you the most useful range of adjustment of the handle positions.
