Best Shovel - Ever!!!
Was hesitant about spending this much on a shovel and whether it would perform as well as everyone says - and it does perform, very well to be honest! I’ve used this to dig out an old bush in my backyard with much less effort than if I were to have used something else! The comfort step is great, too. I’ve stood on it (150 lbs.) while trying to dig out my bush and it’s definitely solid. I especially love this shovel for digging out dried-out brown zoysia sod from my yard. The spade tip is strong and it can be run through underneath the sod to very easily take it out and replace with new ones.

      This is a great digging shovel. The handle is comfortable and the blade is sharp. I dug out 9 stumps and a massive flower bed that we're renovating. My old wood handle shovel broke so I decided to try out fiberglass and it's solid. I know you're supposed to use a pry bar to lift out stumps, but this thing has handled the task very well. I'm not sure why you'd spend more money on another shovel. You won't regret getting this one!

      For the price of this shovel, i definitely feel like i got my money's worth. The fiberglass handle is a lil lighter than the old wood. And if you grew up using wood handles and dealt with them breaking, the change is a relief. I would recommend to anyone for light to medium work.

      replacing an old would handle shovel with this one. It is well made but very heavy. My 89 year old Mother-in-Law said it was to heavy for her. If I had know it was that easy to get her to stop using a shovel I would have bought it years ago.

        The shovel seems to have plenty of strength, but lacks any torsional stability. Unless you jump on it with both feet, it has a tendency to twist rather than enter the soil straight. Even though it looks rugged with wide area for your foot to push on the shovel, the way that the handle is attached to the spade does not prevent any slippage and allows the entire tool to twist within the connection. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS TOOL FOR ANYTHING BUT THE LIGHTEST OF LIGHT DUTY WORK!!!

        I needed to dig up and replace a few irritation lines around my house My previous shovel of 15 years finally gave out. This one is very light and very comfortable to use. Feels very sturdy. I used it to pry up some roots and rocks and and it handled the stress with ease.

        This shovel looks like it’s going to be great to have around the house. I’m not sure how it would hold up to every-day jobsite type use but for an occasional use such as in the backyard of a suburban home, this should do well. It is light and easy to use plus it is easy to grip onto with the rubber/foam end of the handle. The comfort step also works well to keep feet from sliding off when pushing the shovel into the ground.

        Broke after a year
        I bought this a year ago but didn't use it very much until this year. I started taking out some bushes along my driveway and always thought the handle was going to break. It never did, but the shovel head bent sideways about 30 degrees. Ames is working with me to send a replacement. I think its good for some jobs, but not heavy duty.
