!0 Year Guarantee - But Only Lasted 10 Seconds!!
on 4 October 2010
I ordered a Spear & Jackson digging spade and requested next day delivery as I wanted to get on with some work on my allotment. The spade arrived on time and away I went intent on a good day's work. Unfortunately, the very first time I put the spade in the ground there was a loud crack and the wooden handle snapped at the point where it meets the metal shaft. So much for a ten year guarantee - my spade did not even make ten seconds!! Is this some sort of record? In case you are wondering, the ground was good and soft, with no clay, stones or any other material that might have put a strain on the spade.
I shall be getting a replacement - but it won't be a Spear & Jackson!!
