Questions & Answers

What is the width of the blade at the bottom of the spade?

The specs say the blade is over 7 inches wide but I can't tell if that is at the top where you put your foot, or at the bottom where it penetrates the soil.
Asked by: WeekendGardener63
The upper comfort steps get in the way if you need to dig deeper the say 12" or need to clear out a deep trench.

Only thing that I didn't like was the handle felt like it was going to snap if I dug too deep and pulled back on the handle. So I would have to dig a little shallower than I originally wanted, creating a longer job but otherwise it did what I needed it to do.

I had to shovel for a couple of weeks, and unfortunately I've had to use our several times. It has a nice wide platform at the top for pushing with your feet. Overall it seems sturdy enough but I would recommend sharpening it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Speed with foot support The top edge of the blade is bent over by about a half-inch perpendicular to the blade itself. This provides excellent foot support for pushing the blade down through hard packed soil. This is an excellent feature.
