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.

I purchased this because Ames generally has good products and I liked the wider foot place. The first time I used it, I dug around the base of a small tree. As I applied pressure to the spade to loosen the roots, the blade bent and twisted. This happened several times and the blade did return to it's original shape. This spade is not good for anything other than light duty work in soft soil. I will be returning it to Home Depot for a refund.

IT IS UP TO 400 TREES AND STILL GOING, HOPEFULLY IT ATTRACTS MORE SPADES TO HELP FOR MY DAUGHTER AND I (AND MY 3 YR OLD GRANDSON) ARE WEARING OUT EVEN THOUGH THE SHOVEL ISN'T. THE SHOVEL EVEN DUG UP A LARGE MILK CONTAINER A FOOT UNDER (THE FARM IS 300 YRS OLD SO WE FIND STUFF ALL THE TIME) SABRINA AND TAYLOR

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.
