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 !

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.

Great Shovel!

Very well built and sturdy, looks like it will last quite a long while! Well designed to gain extra purchase when digging, coating has lasted well so far too!

Great shovel. Try to find a USA version.

|

The new model, the one in the picture, is not made in the USA anymore. I bought one for store pickup, and got one made in the USA. The USA version has a wavy pattern on both sides, the non-USA version has a serrated on a single side. The USA version say "USA" imprinted on the shovel head, the non-USA version has "Craftsman" imprinted on the shovel head. My suggestion is to go over to the store and confirm you get a USA version. Build quality is excellent. Heavy gauge steel, strong fiberglass handle, padding on fiberglass, and nice D-Handle. The size end-to-end, from shovel tip to end of D-handle is exactly 40 inches. So if you are really tall, over 6 foot, keep that in mind, because you will be hunching over to dig a hole.

Solid built shovel

Shovel is solid and well designed. Not too heavy to carry but solid enough to dig a trench

Round Point Shovel

|

Another great Craftsman item. Solid american steel and has the ability to take really using it for leverage. This fiberglass idea and lifetime warranty are unbeatable and this is truly a shovel for my lifetime and guarantied to be by Craftsman.

fourth maybe fifth Craftsman shovel

|

I've owned several Craftsman shovels.
Nothing last forever, but, with the Craftsman warranty, every time the handle broke, brought in the old shovel, showed them the broken handle, and received a new shovel, no questions asked.
The latest version of the shovel has a two very nice features:
the top edge fold over has been fashioned into a step, so it's much easier on your foot
the bottom/leading edge is serrated
Lost one shovel over the winter, probably hiding in the back of our garden, over grown, so, didn't hesitate to buy a new one!
