5.0 out of 5 stars Wow
Why did I struggle for years with a spade with a crack in the handle that regularly nipped my hand? I finally bit the bullet and bought this spade - "Stainless steel I thought, how posh what a waste!" Well I should have done it years ago, it's like driving a new car after having an old banger. I feel like one of those tele gardeners with this and yes stainless steel does...

2.0 out of 5 stars Broke after 5 months
The spade had reasonable reviews and appeared sturdy when it arrived but in less than 6 months the rivet attaching the handle to the spade end has broken so it falls apart! It is now useless. The tesco spade we had before lasted 6 years! Very disappointing!

Why did I struggle for years with a spade with a crack in the handle that regularly nipped my hand? I finally bit the bullet and bought this spade - "Stainless steel I thought, how posh what a waste!" Well I should have done it years ago, it's like driving a new car after having an old banger. I feel like one of those tele gardeners with this and yes stainless steel does make digging much easier than my old trusty rusty which by the way I have kept for hacking jobs (with duct tap round the split) waste not want not. But seriously, this is excellent value for money.

Arrived quickly and was exactly what I ordered.
It is well made but lacks a shoe guard on the top of the blade.
If I had realised this before I ordered I would have chosen another make.
Thanks for the swift delivery.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stainless digging spade...., 19 May 2014

This review is from: Draper Expert 19656 Stainless Steel Digging Spade (DIY & Tools)
Spade well made and sturdy. light enough for a light female to handle but strong enough to withstand some fairly arduous use. The only main fault with the spade is the lack foot rest lugs, when digging into heavy soil, even with heavy soled boots on, the blade is quite sore on the sole of the foot. They should reconsider this and perhaps weld a thin strip on to the top edge, something i'm considering doing.

Very pleased with this spade. Slices into the soil with ease and wipes clean after use. The handle grip is good.

Sometimes you see something that had not been looking for. I had been struggling along with my old garden spade without thinking of replacing it but I am so glad I did, this is amazing.
