A relatively light-to-lift spade with a good blade contour. 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.

    ......like a spoon for the cake!
    A very efficient tool. I was skeptical about a trenching with a spade in my dry clay soil; but I was wrong. This tool was like digging a cake with spoon. i do really appreciate it. it is very easy to use; just give a push with your foot, and there it goes down... Nice engineering design behind the manufacturing; and it is made in the USA too!

          This spade worked well for shrub removal . Sturdy and compact. A flat surface at the top of blade made it comfortable under foot when digging.

          Angle is slightly off an this drain spade is less ergonomic than the one it replaced that never made it back from a brother-in-law borrowing it?
