Ideal for heavy digging, ground preparation and harvesting, this spade is a real innovation in traditional digging tools. The large, comfortable circular handle allows a greater range of natural hand positions, avoiding wrist strain.

The steps 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.

The spade has a resin-encased steel shaft core and a stainless-steel head. It is so strong that you can apply over 150 lb of prying force at the end of the handle without breaking it. It is 43 1/2" long, has a 13" × 7" head and weighs 5 lb 4 oz.
