  • Composite handles rated at 500 lb. break strength
  • Handle widens slightly at the end to provide firm hand grip

  • 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
  • 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

Round point composite handle shovel

Lee Miller from NY wrote (May 29, 2017):

Shovel is a wonderful hand tool. The only draw back is the handle. The handle began fading as soon as I removed it from the box. It is now almost a pink in color very disappointed......

Bad A** Shovel

Gardening Business Owner from WA wrote (September 26, 2011):

This is the only shovel I've used that does not snap at the neck in 1-3 months. I bought a dozen two years ago. They have sun faded and not yet broken. Definitely worth the money. The round and square point shovels are the same type and quality.

This is a very sturdy, durable shovel at an affordable price. Very good value for landscapers, nurserymen and homeowners!
