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 !
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
Good solid Craftsman shovel that feels very solid when using it. I needed a good shovel to help with some fill dirt for a large hole in my backyard. This shovel worked very well and had a good price.
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.
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!
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.
