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.

16 in. D-Handle Drain Spade is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 41.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from A little weak This shovel is ok. Really want a shovel that doesn't bend when digging up dirt. Works ok with lose or wet dirt. Bends easily In hard soil.

The wider flange for the foot is a big plus in my mind. Will use it to shape post holes to proper depth and width for 6" by 6" wooden fence braces and 9"+ diameter fence posts for a cattle gate. Blade appears quite durable but I wish the leading edge was sharper. I'll fix that myself.
