does not do what it says
This snapped just after taking two rose bushes that were in my back yard. I do not recommend this product.

    This shovel worked quite well for about 15-20 occasions. After enough time the shovel has started to break and is bending to the point of snapping

      Great for digging up plants, shrubs and such in very "rooty" soil. We used it to remove holly bushes and monkey grass. You still will need a conventional shovel and pitch fork for such tasks but it's a great addition to our arsenal of weapons needed to tame our "Jungle". Note that you may need to stand on the shoulders of the blade to cut through the underlying root structure. One thing that would make this better is to have a slight wider surface to cut through things.

      STAY AWAY- you've been warned!
      This shovel is overpriced (and overhyped), most regrettable purchases I have ever made. I feel duped. The weld is very soft, and it is not sturdy at all! Overpriced!! A regular shovel, half the price, is sturdier, and a better purchase. Finally, if you process the warranty after it bends and breaks, they make you call them to charge $7.84 for shipping. THE PUNCH LINE IS THEY DO NOT PICK UP THE PHONE. They leave you on hold so it cannot be processed. Ponzi scheme, Home Depot should be ashamed.

        We were trying to dig up some well established ligustrum shrub stumps. The shove broke where the handle meets the blade on the 4th root.

        We were so happy to be able to pick one up with ease at our local Home Depot. It is just what I was hoping for. Thank You
