I have a pond and need to dig out the entry area a couple of times a year due to silt and sand build up. A normal shovel made this task a real chore. The Toolite Round Point Shovel with Perforated Blade has reduced the amount of effort it takes to dig out the area. The release of water through the perforations very quickly lightens the load and reduces the work effort considerably. I should have bought one of these a long time ago.
