    After being introduced to this tool I purchased one for myself. That didn't last very long! My wife took it away from me! Both of us HIGHLY RECOMMEND this tool especially for difficult jobs such as digging up monkey grass as we did. It's perfect. It will also cut roots just as good as an axe. Don't hesitate get you on today! It's the FIRE...................

    Birds of Paradise remover!
    My partner and i just recently bought a house and the previous owner grew these beautiful Birds of Paradise plants but it was planted to close to the house. Just inches from the perimeter wall of the house and we decided to get rid of it to lessen the risk of foundation damage. We tried with a regular shovel and nothing. It wasn't until I googled "root remover" that I came upon this tool. The serrated part of the shovel was really the game changer. We had 3 huge, overgrown, Birds of Paradise, and we were able to uproot the plants in three days. It's still a lot of labor but it was worth the blood, sweat, and tears! I highly approve of this tool IF you need to get rid of troublesome roots that is close to a foundation/structure.

      RadiusGarden Root Slayer does it's job, however blade broke about 5 inches from bottom after ~80 hours work
      I'll probably buy this shovel or one like it. The Radius Root Slayer was useful at removing bamboo rhizomes however after ~80 hours of hard use the blade broke. When it was in one piece it was awesome at doing the intended job.

        Very specialized and extremely useful shovel! I am a 68 year old woman with occasional back problems and was able to dig out an old rose that had reverted to rootstock and an oak sapling with tough deep roots in hard clay soil in about 15 or 20 minutes! (See photo). It took me a little while to figure out the best way to use the unusual shape of this shovel compared to my regular one, but once I got going I could feel and hear it cutting through the bigger roots with a gratifying crunch! Woohoo!!! It came with a good guarantee, but I was concerned my new shovel might get bent in my hard dry clay soil, so I soaked around the roots for a couple days before digging. (In hindsight, I think the shovel itself would have survived with no problems, but it probably would have required more digging effort.) The shovel seems well thought out and well made; the metal is thick and sturdy without being too heavy and I was able to cut and pry with it in hard compacted clay soil. There is a generous surface area for your foot so you can comfortably step on the shovel to push it down with your weight. The round handle looked weird at first, but it is a good size and very comfortable, especially when moving the shovel back and forth to chew through tough roots. I wish I had discovered this wonderful tool years ago. We have a huge yard with lots of oak, olive, walnut, and other unwanted volunteer tree saplings constantly sprouting where I don't want them and I expect to get many years of use from this unique tool. It is also perfect for transplanting, and digging holes.

          Best shovel you could ever purchase. cuts through dirt and roots like a knife through butter. You seriously can't go wrong with this shovel.

          This shovel is a game changer for digging holes in tough dirt/clay. I am crating new flower gardens this year and this baby cuts thought impacted dirt, tree roots and clumpy roots from previous plantings. I am so glad I bought it! A word of caution though…it has very sharp serrated edges so you can’t just fling it around because it could do some damage if it hits your leg/ ankle/foot. Buy it! You won’t regret it!

          This is just what I needed to remove some small trees and shrubs. Works better than a plain shovel and the leverage is much better. I love it!
