Once I figured out that the best way to use this is to dig backwards - ie with my back facing the direction I wanted my hole to go, this spade was a God send. Digging out about 1.5 inches of the trench about 14" deep with each scoop - you can do more if you are stronger. Had my trench dug in no time.

I bought this shovel to widen the bottom of holes I was digging to plant a few trees to allow more room for the roots to expand. This shovel worked well for this purpose the handle seems strong and the blade flexs a little to allow undermining. Overall it met and exceeded expectations.

The metal is so thin, it kept bending if I went more than a few inches deep. My job took longer, but with being careful not to break the shovel, I got the holes dug. I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone though.
