Rated 5.0 out of 5 by 22 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best shovel This is the best shovel I have ever used. Have had it for several years now & used it for lots of digging. It's heavy & solid, which makes digging holes in hard clay & soil easier. Will be buying a 2nd one to make sure I always have one, although the current one is still in great shape. Worth every penny & then some!! March 4, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best Buy Ever I have had this shovel for a number of years and used it for anything you can think of from boulders to roots and hard pan soil. Believe me I have abused this thing and still as sharp and straight as ever. July 28, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by No Worries I can finially pry stubborn roots from the ground without worry of breaking the handle. I went through 2 ash handles and 4 fiberglass handles this Spring before I gave up on conventional shovels and got this GREAT! one. I worried a little that it would be heavy but the weight is not excessive and not noticeable while digging. July 23, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice Shovel I was very impress with this shovel. It was everything I expected November 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by World's best shovel I own and operate a construction company that remodels backyards. We did pier holes on every job. This is hands down the best shovel in the world. We only break maybe 1 per year per crew, which is astounding considering we did hundreds of holes in very tough dirt and rock. This is for real digging, if you want to spread top soil go with a lighter shovel. This is an industrial well built shovel make for real work. Dollar for dollar, maybe the best tool in my entire stable. September 4, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The best shovel that I have ever used. Some other reviews say that this shovel is impossible to break. I have regrettably found that is not true. I finally broke mine - but I had brutally abused the shovel for several years! I am going to buy another one. I hope the new one is as sturdy as my last one (rest in peace). How to break it: put it under something that will not move, put a rock behind the handle, jump on the handle several times (I weigh over 250 lbs) - the shovel handle finally bent...but did not break.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great for digging out shrubs and through roots. American Made. shovel has good weight to it and the metal blade is thick enough to grind an edge for better chopping and cutting. I The fiberglass handle is getting the job done, but I would have liked the Mfg to make the handle about six inches longer to improve leverage. October 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Last shovel I will ever need to buy! With its Lifetime warranty and being all steel this shovel really works well for me. Living in Western WA where there are lots of rocks in the soil can be a real bear to dig in. This shovel really helps out a lot and I no longer have to worry about breaking anything. The product is however made in China but in this case it seems to be very well made. November 20, 2012
