Make any digging job easier!

Leonard Closed-Back Round-Point Shovels feature durable tempered steel blades. A.M. Leonard welds an additional steel ribbon to the back for additional reinforcement. The 14-gauge steel head measures 9-1/4 inches wide and 12 inches long and has a black surface coating.

This shovel has a 48-inch long Tuff-Flex™ Composite handle. This handle provides superior durability at the cost of some added weight. An extended 11-inch socket and double rivet design provide a secure head-to-handle connection.

Use a Leonard Closed-Back Round-Point Shovel to make any digging job easier. The closed-back design prevents soil buildup during use. Their black coating and flat surface make them extremely easy to clean.

A.M. Leonard engineers these shovels for the toughest of jobs. The durable steel blades resist rust and corrosion. A notched handle end bends to conform to the curve of the handle. This bend supports the core through the neck of the shovel. Thru rivets maximize the strength of the head and handle connection. A.M. Leonard backs these tools with a lifetime warranty!

Bad A** Shovel

2011-09-26

This is the only shovel I've used that does not snap at the neck in 1-3 months. I bought a dozen two years ago. They have sun faded and not yet broken. Definitely worth the money. The round and square point shovels are the same type and quality.
