Nursery Spade

I needed a tool that was much sturdier the what's available at local big box stores. The ones I used to buy failed within a day or two. These A.M. Leonard spades should last a great deal longer.

The best spade I own,

wrote ():

I have wwoofers working on my farm and though wonderful they are tough on equipment. Every year someone would break the handle on a spade. A good deep strong spade is critical in a garden environment. I searched for a spade that was made with one piece of steel and here it is - to my mind the perfect tool. Keep it clean. Keep it sharp. I have two now and will buy another next summer, As a shallow aside i love the red handle - easy to see over the weeds!!

Landscape shovel

wrote ():

I wanted an unbreakable shovel with a handle that would last. Found it in this one. I knew it was tough when I picked it up and dug my first hole. Over the years I find I get enjoyment in quality long lasting items even if they cost more originally.

best digging tool for the long haul.

The squared blade and steel handle are a perfect combo for any digging.

Solid spade

wrote ():

good strength, my crews use the spades for everything including moving boulders, prying up concrete, cutting large roots, etc. They hold up well and are not too heavy when edging beds all day.

This spade was bought to do heavy digging of weed sod in garden beds at Canterbury Shaker Village. It does a marvelous job.

A.M.L. Nursery Spade

wrote ():

I purchased this as an alternative to the 15" wide model because it is slightly longer and I thought the more narrow blade would make it handier in tight spots. After using both alternatively, I have to say I prefer the 15". That being said, one of these spades is with me at all times. They are the most versatile tool in my arsenal because they are just so ... tough. I never leave home without it. These spades are expensive.... and worth every penny.

Great Product

These shovels are awesome. I consider them as my secret weapon for digging quick, clean holes. And they last forever.

Fit for a king

wrote ():

I always used for decades the higher priced name brand steel spade. AM leonards spade stands up to everything I had the other one do with less edge were. Outstanding!

5 Stars

wrote ():

I remember when these first came out and the price was much less. We still have all but one of the original one purchased. They hold a sharp edge. If one person can destroy this spade then you do not want to mess with that person.

THE BEST

wrote ():

This line of spades is the best in my experience. Very strong, easy to handle. virtually indestructable and at a great price.

4 Stars

probably the best style

wrote ():

since the full strap classic spade that am leonard just reissued has that thin crappy handle that will bend brake when you are prying on it, this is probably the better spade they offer
