I wanted an unbreakable shovel with a handle that would last. Found it in this one. I knew it was tough when I picked it up and dug my first hole. Over the years I find I get enjoyment in quality long lasting items even if they cost more originally.
The squared blade and steel handle are a perfect combo for any digging.
This shovel is indestructible. Weight makes it the perfect choice for heavy clay sites.
Sturdy and good for industrial use.
good strength, my crews use the spades for everything including moving boulders, prying up concrete, cutting large roots, etc. They hold up well and are not too heavy when edging beds all day.
we like this spade because it's all steel; it's light and just well made
This spade was bought to do heavy digging of weed sod in garden beds at Canterbury Shaker Village. It does a marvelous job.
Great Sturdy spade that you can do some damage with.
I purchased this as an alternative to the 15 wide model because it is slightly longer and I thought the more narrow blade would make it handier in tight spots. After using both alternatively, I have to say I prefer the 15. That being said, one of these spades is with me at all times. They are the most versatile tool in my arsenal because they are just so ... tough. I never leave home without it. These spades are expensive.... and worth every penny.
These shovels are awesome. I consider them as my secret weapon for digging quick, clean holes. And they last forever.
I always used for decades the higher priced name brand steel spade. AM leonards spade stands up to everything I had the other one do with less edge were. Outstanding!
This line of spades is the best in my experience. Very strong, easy to handle. virtually indestructable and at a great price.
since the full strap classic spade that am leonard just reissued has that thin crappy handle that will bend brake when you are prying on it, this is probably the better spade they offer
