      A:  Check out a similar length at the store if you can. It's 45 inches long and weighs about 5 lbs. Looks like a good quality shovel. If you order it for delivery and it doesn't work well, you can return it at any Home Depot store.

        A:  This shovel is 45.25 in. in height. Always choose a shovel that is right for your comfort.

            A:  Hi. Please see response to other question poster by Matt in Matt August 21, 2018. I would go and contact Ames directly after 3 years.

            by|Sep 7, 2020

              A:  Hi Cj, It is manufacturers warranty and you will have to reach out directly to Ames (after 180 days that Home Depot covers you with). IMHO. "Lifetime warranty" claims - similar to claiming "perpetuum mobile". What it normally means that product under normal use will last... longer than you. Thanks to community (a few hundred of positive reviews!) you can trust that product is of HIGH quality and very convenient to use. Hope all above helps!

              by|Dec 14, 2020

              A:  No, and also is not honored by the company. Their verbiage on the website makes it pretty clear that they think if anything is wrong, itis YOUR fault. And if you reach out to them, they want your receipt, despite being lifetime warranty. scam.

                Handle separated from blade after 2 uses
                I've had this shovel for about a year now. I purchased it because it felt lighter than the wood version and I thought it would be stronger. I've used it twice. Once to move rocks and once to move wood chips. When trying to pull some rocks away from a hole the handle separated from the blade as seen in the picture. I contacted customer support but they said "the product is not eligible for replacement under our warranty program" because I was missing the receipt.
                  Shovel sucks
                  Within the first hour or two the shovel blade bent. Not heavy duty at all.

                    Low Durability Digging Shovel
                    Had this shovel for two years. At first it seemed solid, but after two years of residential light use the metal at the neck of the shovel has snapped. This was used for top soil and dirt around the yard. No major digging or use for heavy rock or debris. Ames claims to have a lifetime warranty. I will update this review if they follow through and replace it.

                      This shovel is a super digging implement, especially for a midrange tall individual that is slight like me. I am 5'7" and 123 pounds and digging has been one of my hardest farm jobs and often wore me out.. This is the perfect size, It is made with these cool cast in steel foot treads so you can stand securely and balance when you dig. It is very pretty too! And it hauls a LOT of dirt. I made short work of tree planting the very day I got it. IT appears to be very durable too, but only time will tell on that score! I am DELIGHTED with this purchase. It is not a mini-shovel BTW it is .good-sized, just not huge and overly thick and heavy, PERFECTO!!

                      The Razor-Back spade shovel I purchase worked wonderful. The built in step for foot leverage worked very well. I wish it was a tad sharper, I will file a small edge to help cut roots better, but this is just my personal like, otherwise it was a great shovel with Lifetime warranty..

                      Poor quality
                      This shovel looks and feels like a very strong shovel. The shovel blade bent the very first time I used it. I have contacted the manufacturer to use the lifetime warranty. We will see if this happens. Home Depot does not warranty this product if it is more than 90 days old.

                      Excellent, strong shovel for hefty jobs
                      I moved literally a couple tons of earth digging a 4x4x5 grave for my poor Siberian Husky, for whom I built a semi-large coffin from materials also purchased at Home Depot. I've had bad experienced with shovels before, with the handles breaking and the bases digging into the soles of my shoes, even workboots, over time. However, this shovel is super sturdy and has an extra wide place to put your foot so it stays comfortable even for big jobs. Highly recommended. Adding a pic of the finished product in the corner of our yard. You can see it was a big job.

                        Solid Build, Nice Push Feature
                        This is a well-built shovel with steel jackets over the spade-end and handle-end that cover & protect all but 9” of the full wood handle. A small, but useful design feature is that the spade is engineered with a flat support at the top that allows the user a small area to step on to push the spade down – with small holes drilled into the step to allow water to drain and minimize mud build-up. The height and weight of the shovel were perfect for me (I am 5’8” tall). The product name “razor back” might give the impression that the edge of the shovel will pierce most anything, and although it did an admirable job of cutting through some thick grass turf (with the aid of some modest foot pressure), it was not particularly effective at chopping through small tree roots (1/2”) that you are likely to encounter when landscaping your back yard. I will likely sharpen the spade to improve its usefulness for my terrain. My overall assessment is that this tool is built to last for the long-haul, and so it will be my “go-to” tool for virtually all my gardening and construction projects.
