Wagon and mower tongues are not pictured here, because there’s not much to put in a picture. Both sizes are made out of ash for strength and flexibility. Many times I am asked why tongues are not made out of oak, and much of it is availability in these larger sizes. When you look at testing done by the U.S. Forest Products Laboratory on different species of woods available in the U.S. today, there is very little difference between oak and ash. Ash shows a higher rating in bending and compressive strength, while oak shows a higher specific gravity and stiffness rating. As a general rule, it is thought that ash will have a greater resistance to a sudden impact than oak. Have you ever seen a baseball bat made out of oak? All I have ever seen are made out of ash. Maybe the baseball industry has something figured out?
