Leonard All Steel Nursery Spades


The strength and durability to tackle any job; lightweight to reduce fatigue.

Our all-steel spades are produced from strong alloy steel, which provides high strength without adding excess weight. The blades are heat treated for great tensile strength and are outfitted with turned steps for comfort. The blade back is flat, reducing soil buildup, and the spade edge has a steep taper to slice through roots and stubborn soil.

Welded 1.5-inch tubular handle construction is smooth and the Leonard orange powder coat finish keeps it visible. Choose the AM12 for all-around use, or the AM15 for extra reach when digging deep to plant trees and shrubs. Lifetime warranty.

Landscape shovel

2016-06-13

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.


from KS

best digging tool for the long haul.

2014-04-18

The squared blade and steel handle are a perfect combo for any digging.


from MD

Durable

This shovel is indestructible. Weight makes it the perfect choice for heavy clay sites.

Solid spade

2011-12-28

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.

A workhorse

2011-12-28

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.

A.M.L. Nursery Spade

2011-12-28

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.


from NC

Great Product

2011-12-28

These shovels are awesome. I consider them as my secret weapon for digging quick, clean holes. And they last forever.


from IL

Fit for a king

2011-12-28

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!


from VA

THE BEST

2011-12-28

This line of spades is the best in my experience. Very strong, easy to handle. virtually indestructable and at a great price.


from RI

probably the best style

2011-12-28

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
