Our steel spade is 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.

WARNING All Steel shovels and spades should not be used in areas where underground electric lines, wires or cables may be present.

Serious shovel

Tyler from NC wrote (December 01, 2017):

I got this shovel mostly for transplanting trees shrubs and perennials. Now this is the shovel I reach for when the diggin gets tough. This powers through roots like a boss and cuts through heavy mountain clay like buttah. I still prefer a lighter wooden handle shovel for everyday digging, but when you need it, this spade is a life saver. I just got done digging a French drain and it was great for smoothing the sides and bottom of the trench and the narrower blade made it easier to work in a deep narrow trench. This spade will last forever! I look forward to transplanting some shrubs without mutilating any roots or breaking any wooden handles.

Too Heavy

Customer from NJ wrote (October 27, 2017):

While the design may be versitile and good for edging, the weight of this shovel is far too heavy ... I simply cannot use it even though I workout at the gym and have considerable strength for a women. I would opt to send it back if it were not for the cost of return shipping.
