Rated 3 out of 5 by from Comparing Ames to HDX. Ames is made in USA, HDX is Chinese, I want to buy USA whenever possible. ... Comparing Ames to HDX. Ames is made in USA, HDX is Chinese, I want to buy USA whenever possible. Every Ames shovel (USA) I picked off the rack was loosely mounted on the handle and is likely to be a problem down the road. The HDX (China) was solidly mounted to the handle. Ames has a bigger footrest and a 15 year warranty and cost about $5. more. The HDX has a smaller footrest and only a 5 year warranty. I would normally rate the Ames a better buy if it wasn't for the loose shovel mounting but I can't. Might be just a bad lot of Ames shovels, their quality control should wake up. I would say the HDX is probably the better choice this time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shovel is a work of art! The first thing I noticed when I went to pick up this shovel was its design and how much quality was put into a single shovel. The rubberized grip enhances ergonomics, the steel is tempered for greater toughness and a longer life, and the shoulder tabs on the blade have small nibs to prevent your foot from slipping off. the blade is pinned to the shaft to prevent the loss of parts. I could go into greater detail about the nicely-stained and finished shaft, to the imprinted details on the blade, but it's really one of those things you need to see in person to appreciate. -If you're a gardener, landscaper, or outdoor enthusiast and you want a REALLY fancy shovel, then this is the one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A quality sccop This is a well constructed shovel. The handle is very strong and the metal is solid. The solid metal head makes it a bit heavier than I expected, but it will last. I like that the shovel is tightly riveted so there is no annoying "play" when scooping up small, heavy stones. The foot pushes are convenient, but this type of shovel is really made for transferring verses digging (it's not meant to be a spade). The wood handle is the perfect length for me (I'm 6' tall) which saves my back. Having a 15 year warranty is great and tells me that Ames stands behind this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid well made shovel I was looking for a replacement shovel to move material around to different parts of my raised beds and other general gardening work. This shovel is perfect for it!!! This might be my new favorite shovel as its well balanced and long enough for garden tasks. It has a solid hardwood handle that also has a grip part on the top of it. The bottom is forged metal that is solid and wont bend if you load it up with gravel. It's made in the USA and the bottom metal part is vastly superior to the cheap metal ones from other countries. The steps on the side the bottom of the blade make it easy to go into stuff. This is not a digging shovel, its more for moving material but I had no problem doing some digging with it in lighter material

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really like this shovel This is a great shovel. The fact it is made in the USA is a big deal to me, and it looks and feels like a great shovel. The scoop part of the shovel looks like it should weigh a lot, but the shovel is actually pretty light weight. I very much like the over sized part of the shovel where you put your foot to dig into the dirt ( or what ever). It is very stable and it has anti slip perforations (where your foot meets the shovel) to help you avoid having an accident. It has a rubber grip at the top of the shovel to make handling easier.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good basic tool Needed it to dig up some stuff in the yard and this was perfect

Rated 5 out of 5 by from seems well built and solid. Nicer to the feet than my old shovel. good beefy handle I needed a replacement for my many years old (think 20 years or so) square nose shovel with a splintering handle and this fit the bill nicely. It's an upgrade for sure. I should have done this sooner. I've had a number of tools with both fiberglass and wooden handles. Each has it's own advantages but on the whole I've not seen that the fiberglass holds up any better than a good wood handle so I decided to go this way since I like wood handles. (I've broken my share of both types of handles) I like that this is a beefier wooden handle (note the difference in the pictures between it and the old shovel) and the rubber on the end is nice. The flat areas for your feet on the shovel are much better than the old one I had. My tired old feet say thank you to the shove makers. I'm very pleased with that. I don't put the stress on my tools now that I'm in my 50's that I did when I was younger but I still want something solid. I just finished digging a 50 ft trench and moving and arranging 160 bags of top soil as part of some landscaping I've been doing and having a solid tool to help with the job makes it a little bit easier. I also like that it is a little larger than my old shovel and can scoop up a bit more with each swipe. When you get older you need every bit of help you can get with these little jobs. This is a well built tool and I think it will stand up to all I can put it through. Time to retire my other tired old shovel. At my age this one may outlast me if I don't abuse it too badly.
