Product Benefits

  • White Ash is the best wooden handle material known, lightweight but very durable
  • Handle lacquered for weather resistance
  • Handle widens slightly at the end to provide firm hand grip
  • Closed back is the next to strongest of all blade types. There is a plate welded to the back of the blade and over the opening in the socket to increase strength and to keep soil from building up in the socket
  • This closed back shovel is designed for the medium-to-heavy user that needs a quality tool
  • Higher blade lift is the perfect height for scraping gravel, soil, sand, or other product from a surface for a taller person. This means they don't have to bend over to get the correct angle to work effectively
  • The turned step is easier on your feet, especially when wearing soft-soled shoes
  • Deeply curved bowl makes it easier to carry soil, gravel, or other product from one location to another
  • High blade lift means you don't have to bend over so far to get soil out of a hole you are digging
  • Weighs less than a solid shank style, more than an open back

Great product, hard working


We go through quite a few shovels along the way and these have really stood the test of time. They are durable and rarely have issues.
