A square-headed shovel is practical for a wide range of tasks, from moving garden soil or mulch to scooping swept-up debris from patio and walkway clean-ups.
This long-handled version has a fiberglass shaft with a steel insert that gives adequate leverage while letting you work from an upright position. It has two gripping surfaces: a PVC end-grip and a textured surface above the socket for extra leverage when transferring heavy material.
The 11" x 9 1/2" head is made of 14 gauge hardened carbon steel that is powder coated for rust resistance and is attached to the handle by dual rivets and a stainless-steel collar. The large textured treads provide a wider surface than typical steps for better foot registration.
Measures just over 58" long and weighs 5 lb 4 oz.
