Good shovel, scoop sized properly for large jobs
I upgraded from my old wooden handle shovel. This new one is actually a little heavier than the wood one, despite the fiberglass, because the metal is thicker. When using a shovel to move dirt, if the scoop is too big you will get tired quickly, my old shovel was about 2" wider and was hard to use, since it held too much dirt. This shovel is properly designed, it holds the right amount of dirt to keep the user from over exerting themselves. The handle is comfortable even without gloves.
Good Shovel For The Price
I like this shovel very much, especially for the price. It has a very comfortable handle and seems to be lighter in weight than my much older wood square point shovel. I'm sure it will last many years. The only knock I can think of is that it is not a one piece tool, so eventually the connection between the fiberglass handle and the steel blade will come a part. However, it does come with a lifetime warranty.
An excellent light, but strong shovel for moving heavy material
I bought this shovel to aid in moving many cubic yards of landscape gravel in my backyard to a different area on my property. It's very strong despite it's weight. It handled the job beautifully. Even the balance of the shovel seemed well designed. After many many hours of use, I hardly felt fatigued. So, if you need a transfer shovel for moving heavy material around, I believe this one will manage the job well for you.
