Our all steel spades are now available in a long straight handled version for extra leverage! By popular request, we've added a long handle to our high quality steel spades. Powder coated alloy steel, in AML orange for visibility, provides high strength without excess weight. The blades are heat treated for great tensile strength and are outfitted with turned steps for comfort. The blade back is flat, reducing soil buildup, and the spade edge has a steep taper to slice through roots and stubborn soil. Welded 1.5" tubular handle is smooth and measures 50" long from the turned step. Lifetime warranty.
