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!
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 !
Have several digging tools in this Craftsman line and they are almost indestructible. I live in a very rocky area and admit to doing a good amount of prying rocks out of the ground with these and they never fail me. The root cutting edge is a good addition.
Best garden shovel, light and durable.
High quality shovel
my son keeps using mine, guess I need to get him one.
This is a great heavy duty shovel. The steel has held up to digging through dirt, rocks, and a ton of roots from shrubs.
This shovel is nade for Paul Bunyan not us regular folk. Way too heavy gor a whole day of shoveling
Not very balanced much heavier than the older one I have. I took it back, digging is hard enough w/out adding a very heavy shovel
