Good shovel, wider than other narrow spades and the bucket starts to approach a flat head shovel. I used this to clear grass for a new garden area and it performed as expected, flawlessly, without feeling cheaply made or pieces coming loose. A good solid American made product I recommend.

We used the spade to dig up a straight line on our walkway. Then, we planted some ground cover to make for a beautiful front yard!
