4.0 out of 5 stars What an amazing little shovel
I wouldn't be surprised if this shovels original intention was to be used by the armed forces, in fact if you search for a army folding shovel on the Internet the results that come back look almost identical to this one, not to mention it comes in that nice army green.

Find for sand and other light work but in my experience anything heavier will buckle the blade and once buckled it is never the same again.

4.0 out of 5 stars What an amazing little shovel, 26 April 2011
This review is from: Gelert Folding Shovel (Sports)
I wouldn't be surprised if this shovels original intention was to be used by the armed forces, in fact if you search for a army folding shovel on the Internet the results that come back look almost identical to this one, not to mention it comes in that nice army green. When I first saw it, I could not believe how solid the construction was. The blade is the most important part of the shovel and I doubt this blade would bend or break any time soon. If someone is looking for a shovel to have in their rucksack then it has the advantage that it can be folded neatly away but at the same time it does weigh 1 kg and it does not come with a cover for the blade which means having to clean it before putting it back in the rucksack, that is why I have given it 4 stars.

It's a little on the heavy side but then again I doubt that I will ever need to replace it.

A good solid tool to have handy in the car for when the snow arrives. Could do with some sort of sheath to keep it in to become a 5*.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid, dig's very well., 14 July 2011
This review is from: Gelert Folding Shovel (Sports)
Used this to dig hard dirt up to build dirt jumps with. It goes into the solid ground very well and the blade can be turned into a pickaxe style tool for very quick digging. The tip cut straight through roots in the ground as well. It is of very solid build quality and is definitely worth the price.

My only criticisms are that the locking collar can come a little loose as you dig meaning the spade blade starts to rattle. Also the edge is serrated as a "saw" but certainly nothing can be sawn with it, The teeth aren't sharp at all, it doesn't cut at all but who needs a spade to cut down a tree! Great product!

Used in recent snowy weather...sturdy,light and serated edge great for breaking up ice. Telescopic handle would really make this 5*. Pleased with this and great value.

A very good quality folding shovel! Can compare with the best I've seen and used over 20 years.. I'm getting another one for the other car too.

Great little gadget, bought it for the beach more than anything.
It's strong and sturdy, and easily folded.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!, 24 Sep 2011
This review is from: Gelert Folding Shovel (Sports)
Great idea - small enough to fit very easily in the car boot, it is certainly strong enough to shovel not only mud and leaves but packed snow and ice (though not yet tested in winter conditions). Essential winter driving kit and I will be equipping my daughters' cars with them too.
