Spear Head Spade - Reinforced Fiberglass Gardening Shovel with Cushioned D Grip - Award Winning Shovel - Model SHFD2

Asin: B01N5NOJ4Q

All Spear Head Spade blades are designed from the ground up to handle your most difficult digging situations while reducing effort by up to 80%. The unique "Patent Pending" blade profile gives it the impressive ability to auto-seek the path of least resistance and then gradually ease, wedge, and cut through the most challenging of conditions. Spear Head Spade blades are made of high carbon manganese steel that is 33% thicker and 25% harder than normal shovels. They are sharpened from tip to tail at a 35 degree angle to give them an effective and durable edge. They are powder coated with an epoxy resin for durability and ease of cleaning. Generous forward bent foot rests make digging more comfortable, prevent entanglement with roots, and enable the blade to hold more soil. All shovels are made with reinforced fiberglass handles. You will find that they are among the lightest and strongest shovels on the market. They are also highly weather resistant, low maintenance, and non-conductive. Please note - although the fiberglass handle is non-conductive, always contact Call Before You Dig before digging and be extra careful when working around electricity. The SHFD2 has a light weight cushioned polymeric grip, designed to make it easier and more comfortable when doing tough digging. The grip also has UV inhibitors that allow it to withstand the harshest outdoor conditions.

Features

  • First multi patented hybrid garden shovel and spade.
  • Guaranteed to significantly reduce digging efforts.
  • Light weight design makes it easy to lift and use.
  • Specially reinforced pultruded fiberglass handle is 60% stronger than EN-3388 shovel/spade standards.
  • Great for rocky, compacted soils and clay. Excellent for separating and dividing highly rooted perennials.
