Product Benefits

  • Composite handle consists of a fiberglass core with a smooth poly jacket that is contoured for better handling
  • Composite handles rated at 500 lb. break strength
  • 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
  • The square point is designed to make clean up of your work area easier
  • Weighs less than a solid shank style, more than an open back

Looking for closed back and saw the orange handle and the affordable price. I made a quick decision ignoring some red flags. 1st) Handle feels heavy to me and I’m not sure about it’s tapering profile. I certainly do not like the smooth surface devoid of grip zones. 2) Closed back with small gaps will allow moisty in leading to hidden rust. Saw this on my new Structron Shovel as well. 3) Most disagreeable fact concerning this shovel, IT’S MADE IN China! This fact alone tarnished every other aspect off this shovel for me!
