Seasonal items. Limited stock.

We have supplemented our popular line of stainless-steel ergonomic digging tools (see items PG101 through PG111) with these lightweight and taller alternatives.

To increase the length while reducing weight, the shafts are made of durable fiberglass. The heads are carbon-steel with a clear epoxy coating to resist rust, and are joined to the shafts with hardwood wedges for strength. The tools are strong enough to bear 120 lb of force at the end of the handle without breakage.

The line includes the larger digging spade, a digging fork, a transplant spade and a shovel (for digging or moving material). Like the stainless-steel digging tools, they have large circular handles to permit a range of natural hand positions to avoid wrist strain, and oversize shovel steps for secure, comfortable foot placement.

 
   
The steps (found on the spades and the shovel) are larger, higher set and offset slightly from the shaft, to provide a wider surface with better foot registration than traditional steps. The steps are also folded forward and slightly curved (traditional steps fold backward, toward the user, and are straight), which softens the corner to reduce ankle injuries. Last, the angle of the step is slightly greater than the traditional 90° relative to the blade, providing a better push angle for the tool.

Overall lengths, head sizes and weights are listed in the chart below.

These products are available only at our retail stores.
