Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long handled pointed shovel Having been brought up on farm 70 years ago in the West Country I was used to using a shovel like this but had forgotten how much better one of these is compared to a normal shovel. The ease with which the pointed head will enter soil, gravel, sand, ballast immediately gives you energy saving advantage and the leverage of the long handle means you can lift and throw shovelfuls so easily. The moulded composite handle also provides fantastic grip even when wet. Even after unloading 3 tons of ballast, I didn't even feel any back strain, I'm so glad I found this product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong useful shovel I bought this after reading the reviews. I had no idea how useful, strong and easy to use it would be. Now in my 70’s I have moved several tons of delivered top soil, dug up bramble roots, the leverage is amazing and all without stooping. Wish I had bought one years ago.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than I'd hoped Finding that using a normal spade was quickly giving me backache (old age creeping on) I saw this on line and, after a bit of research, decided it was at a price point where it ought to be robust enough to last (stories of cheaper ones breaking) but cheap enough that if I didn't get on with it I wouldn't lose sleep. First used it to dig compacted ground under some trees and to move a mature shrub. A couple of hours work all told - no backache. Second time was to dig round the borders in the front garden mixing in rotted manure, again compacted ground through neglect. Again no backache. It didn't take long to get used to the different way of digging and I find it provides a useful bridge between the cutting role of a traditional spade and the moving capacity of a shovel (which I'm always tempted to overload). Final thoughts? Why did no-one tell me about these before! And the option of a stainless steel head although obviously more expensive would be nice.

Rotated handle?

I've ordered and returned 2 of these shovels because the handle was rotated about 5 degrees in the head. Are they all like this, or did I just get 2 dodgy ones?
