Product Features

  • Turned step
  • Round point style
  • Closed back blade
  • Blade double riveted to handle
  • New fiberglass Handles - Fiberglass without any plastic molding. Like the composite the head connection area is a solid fiberglass, the balance of the fiberglass is shaped like a honeycomb, not a hollow tube and not solid. There are some resins used in a thin surface veil which provides prevents splintering and provides UV protection. But this handle is mostly fiberglass, where the composite is a mix of both materials.

Product Benefits

  • High handle lift means you don't have to bend over so far to get soil out of a hole you are digging
  • Closed back is the next to strongest of all blade types. There is a plate welded to the back of the blade and over the opening in the socket to increase strength and to keep soil from building up in the socket
  • This closed back shovel is designed for the medium-to-heavy user that needs a quality tool
  • The turned step is easier on your feet, especially when wearing soft-soled shoes

Customer Reviews for Leonard Closed Back Round Point Shovel With 48in Fiberglass Handle

2 Stars

Poor Quality

from IN wrote (September 25, 2012):

I bought this I wanted to upgrade my old wood handled shovels. The fiberglass handle is great, however the shovel head on this is very poor quality. Thin shovel head and poor constuction. Closed back welds broke and then split shovel head while digging out shrubs. Upgrade to the solid closed back shovel as this one is not worth the money. A.M. Leo made great on their Lifetime Guarantee, but this shovel is junk.

Great Shovel!

Paul K. from AZ wrote (September 26, 2011):

We use round point shovels to dig holes to plant trees in hard, rocky soil. We have broken several, including one with an "unbreakable" handle! This shovel is holding up very well. And, since it is an A.M. Leonard, it is guaranteed if it should ever fail.

One tough shovel

Landscape Designer from CA wrote (September 24, 2011):

Live in N Ca. Ground is mostly clay and like concrete this time of year. You do more 'prying' than digging. Had this shovel for 3 mo and have relentlessly beat the crap out of it. Seems I dont know how many other shovels fold in half this time of year. Not this one. Good tool at good price.

Excellent shovel, especially for the price.

from WA wrote (September 24, 2011):

Our company bought several of these shovels. We haven't used them a lot yet, but so far they work as well as we hoped. We have very heavy clay soil and breaking a shovel handle is not uncommon, but these shovels are doing fine.
