    This is a good, sturdy and reasonably cheap spade. There's not much you can say about it - it will dig holes, and fill 'em without a problem :)

    Mind you, when the zombie apocalypse hits I'm sure it will also double up as a weapon in a hitch, and allows you to also get rid of the newly deceased deceased, to ensure that the neighbourhood remains pestilence free!

    In the meantime, it will sit being useful as a basic allotment tool.

    Purchased two of these and both bent after not much work. One has snapped at the weld near the top of the blade and the other will go shortly. I used these for pit planting trees on land that has a fair amount of stones (terminal moraine) and they are not up to this. Would suggest that unless you have well-dug borders, save your cash and buy a better made product

    I'm the kind of guy that calls a spade a spade. And this is a spade. A decent one at that.

    Spade lasted about 35 minutes before snapping in half. I wouldn't say it was particularly heavy work, just removing a rhubarb. Amazon were excellent about the returns though so top marks for them but all in all a totally useless spade unless you're clearing snow or something

    After 8 years service the wooden shaft of my spade broke, so I ordered this one thinking the plastic would fare better.

    No issues with the plastic but after only an hour in the garden, re-edging the lawn and some fairly light digging, the metal is splitting.

    This one is going back, as are the matching fork and hand tools which are similar in quality.

    I borught this Spade for my elderly mother, as she asked me where she could obtain one at the right price. This piece was for the gentleman who tends her garden for her, purely out of kindness. Well, according to mum, he said it is great, nice and strong and sturdy.
    So, Mum is happy, her gardener is happy, and i'm happy that they are happy.

    Thanks to all concerned with this consignment.

    Regards.
    Al.

    Broke my old spade, so been looking for a new one. Most good makes seem to be around the £30.00 mark. Saw this at 13.99 inc free delivery. Delivered very quickly. Used for first time this weekend. Really like the way the top of the spade bends over so doesn't cut into your foot when digging. Goes through the earth like butter.
