GREAT shovel!

I wish I'd discovered this shovel years ago in the peak of my landscaping days! I have it now though and I'm grateful for it. The D-Handle shovel cuts through the tough stuff with ease. I'm a 100lb 62 year old female who still has a passion for planting shrubs and landscaping in difficult places and this shovel makes it possible. Worth every penny and more!

POOR QUALITY

I have bought one of this shovel & I've had to replace it under the Craftsman guarantee 4 times, Once for every hole I've dug. They look like a 1 1/4 " fiberglass handle, But I know they are a cheap piece of 3/4 " tin inside. They bend, twist & breakoff under any digging in any kind of clay soil. I've seen the insides of many of this shovel. If they would only go back to a real wood handle, I wouldn't need to be taking these back. IT IS A WASTE !

Excellent product

|

Purchased on sale, great value. Has lifetime warranty, that is worth a lot to me. Very sturdy, like it better than my long handled shovel. Easy to use.

Craftsman Garden Shovel

|

We needed a sturdy garden shovel and this one was on sale for the unreal price of $6.00! My husband uses it gardening and general yard work and he said it holds up well. Its lighter than I thought it would be but it has not broken! So fat so good...but I wouldn't use it for very tough jobs or heavy duty projects. But for gardening it works well!

Craftsman Garden Shovel

|

Just was used in the garden. The handle is wood and I feel the wood could be heavier but according to husband it held during heavy digging.

Great Shovel Love it

|

I bought this on the suggestion of another gardener and I'm very glad I did. My wife and I have used it a lot. For the small price we paid for it ($17), definitely a good investment. This shovel is a great size, since I am often finding my trowel inadequate for a task but the shovels we have are way too heavy and unwieldy for me. I also really like the fiberglass handle which makes it lighter while the handle also should not rust.

Excellent digging shovel w/ trusted warranty

|

These fiberglass shovels have been improved over the previous generation yellow-handled ones now that they have the wider foot step area. This makes them less fatiguing on your foot.

These fiberglass shovels also have the full Craftsman hand tool warranty which offers piece of mind when you do eventually crack the handle. Simply take it back to your nearest Sears and swap it out for another brand new shovel. Excellent piece of mind from my perspective.

craftsman d handle shovel

|

This shovel is shorter than most which is handy if you are on on hill or in a hole enlarging it and the wide step is easier on your feet than the thin step most shovels have.

Solid quality shovel

|

This is a solid quality shovel with a thick gauge plate and sturdy handle. I hope the neoprene padding lasts on the handle which is handy but perhaps a bit extraneous

Nice shovel

|

I bought this shovel to replace a wooden handled shovel whose handle broke in half while trying to dig out a bush. I was attracted to this shovel because of the fiberglass/steel handle, but concerned about the overall shortness of the handle. For my purposes this has been a great performer so far. The oversized step on the blade makes it easy to dig into the ground, and the handle is rigid enough to really torque out the bushes. I have no need for a longer handle. This is great shovel.

Great shovel, very nice quality!

|

I am converting all my lawn tools to the Craftsman fiberglass handles, due to great durability and awesome finish on the head of the tools! I highly recommend these!

Works Great

|

The description and measurements are very poor but I knew this shovel was not a long handle. I have used it in the yard and the garden and it works excellent.

Got the last USA model the store had! WAY better than 'new' china one

|

I was lucky enough to order this shovel online and pick up at my local Sears store. I was able to pick out the older USA made stock of this shovel. I hear all day from Sears and associates that even though things are now made in China, they meet the same quality as the old USA products. If you have the luck to see the NOS USA shovel next to the "new" china standard you will see and feel the major differences. The USA is thicker grade, has larger place to put foot on to dig with holes in place to gain better grip with your boot. (Kind of like running boards on an ATV, drain holes to let mud and dirt pass) Also the serrated edge is on BOTH edges of the spade and go up an inch or so. Comparing side by side, the USA metal part of the shovel itself is about an inch longer up the handle before it turns to fiberglass. Easy to spot difference is USA is stamped right into the spade part of the shovel. The new china ones have Craftsman stamped in. Compare my descriptions of the USA shovel to the updated pictures online of the new shovels and run to your Sears store and snag a USA one if they still have them.

perfect

I bought this item when it was on sale in-store. It was well worth it. It's the perfect size/height to store and use. The shovel is light and easy to grip.

Craftsman D-Handle Digging Shovel

Great shovel. Sort of a serrated edge, glides into the ground. Nice surface for stepping on.
