Product Benefits

  • White Ash is the best wooden handle material known, lightweight but very durable
  • Handle lacquered for weather resistance
  • Handle widens slightly at the end to provide firm hand grip
  • 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
  • Higher blade lift is the perfect height for scraping gravel, soil, sand, or other product from a surface for a taller person. This means they don't have to bend over to get the correct angle to work effectively
  • The turned step is easier on your feet, especially when wearing soft-soled shoes
  • Deeply curved bowl makes it easier to carry soil, gravel, or other product from one location to another
  • High blade lift means you don't have to bend over so far to get soil out of a hole you are digging
  • Weighs less than a solid shank style, more than an open back

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

5 Stars

Great Shovel, Excellent Value

Ben W. from MI wrote (September 30, 2011):

Great shovel for the Landscaping Industry. When digging in compacted or heavy soil, it has enough mass to power through without being cumbersome. Sturdy with a good feel. My crews have not been able to destroy too many of these. Well worth the price for a shovel that can handle the abuse of hard, daily use.

Great Shovel Head, Weak Handle

Very satisfied with the business end of this shovel but unfortunately the crews seem to be breaking the handles too easily.

5 Stars

Good feel

D. Weber from LA wrote (September 23, 2011):

This shovel has a good feel to it - it's well balanced and sturdy. And the scoop holds a good amount of dirt without most of it falling off before landing where it's supposed to go.

Great product, hard working

We go through quite a few shovels along the way and these have really stood the test of time. They are durable and rarely have issues.
