  • Best I have ever owned

    James, 8/7/2020 Have owned this shovel for 5 years now, it is the best digging and planting tool I have used. Need a hole for your new bush this is the tool you need.
  • This shovel is a beast!

    Glenn Bunting , 7/9/2020 This thing is a beast! Wish I had this years ago...might have saved my back from 3 surgeries. It’s like having the end of a shovel on a solid pry bar. Great leverage and indestructible!
    Get the rubber foot pads...well worth the money. This shovel will dig through anything!
  • Six Years of rough work, still the best tool in the shed.

    James, 7/6/2020 I have used this shovel for six years, and it is still, simply, the best tool in that shed. I don't need to say more.
  • Super-Penetration Garden Shovel

    Chuck, 6/24/2020 The Garden Shovel worked great. Had to plant a new tree and it dug up the sod and dry dirt with no problems. this tool will last for years to come. Wish I had bought the shovel years ago.
  • Game-changer

    Candace, 5/22/2020 This shovel is a complete game-changer. I am a 70 year old petite woman with osteoporosis but I love to garden. My soil is clay :( This shovel has allowed me to turn soil with ease. I wish I had found it sooner!
  • Worth its weight...and then some!

    Sally, 4/18/2020 I've been looking for a long time for a shovel that would function well digging out berry vine roots and scotch broom from a gravel/rock/ soil environment. This shovel is fantastic! It is the perfect height for both men and women and the "foot plant" is wide and deep enough (and the shovel strong enough) to stand on (if you need to dig deep) without fearing that you're going to break the shovel. Absolutely worth its weight in gold...I love it (and I JUST MIGHT share it with my husband????) !
  • Fantastic steel shovels - worth every penny!

    Henry W., 6/9/2019 Best garden shovels! Years ago we purchased a trenching steel shovel and recently purchased the Super-Penetration Garden shovel. We used the two to add a french drain around an island of interlocking pavers that support a 10x12 steel/aluminum gazebo weighing approx 800lbs. The french drain was quickly installed into a trenched perimeter thanks to the Garrett steel shovels. The shovels sliced thru the dirt and rock like a knife thru butter. Everything done within two 6-hour days!

  • Penetration Shovel

    Tom Sturgeon, 2/1/2019 Excellent shovel
  • Nominated Best Shovel in the World !

    Ricky, 11/28/2018 Superb design and strength. You will be impressed when you see this shovel in person. This is a tool that is designed to last a lifetime of daily use for digging. Your digging speed will definitely be faster and easier. Yes the shovel is heavier than a wooden handle shovel but the trade off in durability is worth it. The challenge will be keeping friends and neighbors from asking to borrow it because once you see it for yourself you will want one too! As a side note, if you are thinking about getting an optional foot pad , go ahead and get 2 . That is one of the best assets of this shovel to save bruising on the bottom of your feet. Once you try digging with this shovel you will wonder why you used to work so hard with those inferior shovel at the box stores.
  • My Best Impulse Buy Ever

    Joan G, 11/16/2018 This "best in class" shovel did the work that two days of trying with pitchforks and shovels could not do. After reading the reviews of landscapers, I decided to give it a try. My husband loves loves loves this one-piece solid strong and sharp shovel, a "must have" for transplanting or removing shrubs!
  • A shovel that’s tough

    Xavier T. Carrillo, 11/5/2018 The all metal construction makes this shovel tough and durable on any type of soil. The angled sharp edges took care of roots easily so that I could plant all my bushes. The easy grip handle added great stability to penetrating the soil and lifting the shovel with less effort. I really love this shovel.
  • Great Feel!

    Marty Baumann, 10/27/2018 Excellent tool for digging trees and bushes for transplanting. Strong, sharp and very sturdy. Heavy duty without being too heavy by weight. Built to last!
  • Great Tool!

    David Rybak, 6/25/2018 Very impressed with the weight and design. Works smooth as butter. Living in northern NH the ground can be a challenge, especially removing 20 year over crowded day lilies, the reason for the purchase. Now it is the first thing I grab for any digging. Not a chore anymore!
  • Penetration Shovel

    Grace Rea, 5/31/2018 Love this shovel! One can almost drop it into the ground as it's so sharp. I dug through a bunch of lilac roots today easily. There's all typed of soil here from clay to sand. The rubber foot pad is a must for me too. I'm a senior citizen plus 20.
  • Tough and Sharp

    Beuford, 5/9/2018 Best shovel I have ever used. Made difficult task easy and I would predict it will last 'forever'. It cut through roots (removing an established shrub, I live in the mountains with rocky areas and have abused it as a pry-bar. The foot pad was good enough, I ordered an additional one for the opposite side.
  • super penetration garden shovel

    Brian Cairns, 5/5/2018 This shovel is excellent for slicing through roots in order to get small trees and seedlings out of the ground while preserving the root bundle. The optional foot pad was a good option. I'm glad that I went with the foot pad.
  • Perfect

    Susan Kriner, 12/11/2017 I love the weight and the craftsmanship. Don't understand the foot guard but it's a Christmas gift for my love and he will let me know.
  • Penetration shovel with foot pad

    Mary Young Chinn Tracy, 10/31/2017 This is the VERY BEST spade I have ever owned and the kick pad is a must. Really saves the bottom of the foot.
  • Best Investment in Yardwork Ever

    Kandice, 7/4/2017 This shovel has a couple features that puts it above the rest:

    1. It is STURDY! My husband can break an anvil. OK, maybe not an anvil, but he's broken a one piece hammer trying to separate the mailbox post from cement. We have gone thru more regular shovels than I can count. Come to think of it, we lost a shovel in the mailbox endeavor too, We've had this shovel for a couple of years now. It is still in one piece, doing it's job and going strong. A caveat, this shovel hasn't had to go thru any cement/metal trials, but even everyday use at our house is hard on tools.
    2. It is a high performer: Our house is a continual landscaping project. We have clay dirt., It is awful, like partially hardened cement. (Oh look, a theme). Plus there are lots so rocks, the developer wasn't into the niceties. The shovel's features and construction make it so much easier to dig. It has also held its own against digging up tree stumps (6"-8" diameter trees), tree and bush roots, wholes for planting, edging garden beds. Obviously, this shovel is not magic. It's not going to dig thru a large tree's root ball like a hot knife through butter. HOWEVER, it is superior in strength and shape to regular round shovels. It will make jobs SO much easier.

  • Beast of a spade.

    Hunter, 5/1/2017 This thing is a beast, solid construction all metal. The edge on the spade end slices roots with ease. Got it for my 55 year old mother to remove bushes with, she called me the day she used it and said it was hands down the best yard tool she has ever used.
  • Unique for the purpose

    Percival , 4/1/2017 Uniquely designed or the purpose, both weight and sharpness, allowing me to readily dig through dense root mats in my garden. Optional foot pads very useful though beware, supplied nuts/bolts for attachment are shoddy, leaving the foot pads loose, apt to loosen and fall off. Betters to attach foots pads with with industrial quality nuts/bolts and a lock washer.
  • Worth the money

    Alisa Johnson, 10/11/2016 This shovel is worth the high price. As promised, it cuts through the roots of established perennials and smaller tree roots with little effort. It also lacks the weak spot that the cheaper shovels have, so the handle won't break when you're prying up reluctant root balls.
  • Best Shovel EVER

    Susan, 8/15/2016 Finally a shovel to tackle the toughest garden plants and shrubs. After breaking 2 shovels trying to dig out a mature Zebra Grass, I have been able to attack it successfully with this new shovel!
  • Short & Very Sweet

    Polly Hart, 8/14/2016 There's nothing that gives satisfaction like a quality tool that does its job. It'll be hard at work for many years in my garden.
  • Super penetration shovel

    Kelly C, 3/4/2016 Best shovel ever made! This is a high quality made shovel, I was not disappointed. I was hesitant because of the price, however this will be my last shovel I will ever need. It is heavy duty and slices thru dirt like butter. Highly recommend!
  • A Serious Garden Workhorse

    Judith, 6/14/2015 Everything said in the catalog description is true. This exceptional tool will make removal of established shrubs almost effortless. Strong and sturdy, it cuts through tough soils and roots like cutting through butter. This is THE tool to have for serious garden renovation projects.
  • Penetration Shovel

    Tina, 11/9/2014 The super-penetration shovel is nearly indestructible. I am not gentle with shovels and this particular one is a must for Inland Washington and its rock-laden soil. Glad I bought it but sad my 13-inch straight spade is nearly useless here (works great in the clay soil of Virginia).
  • Wow

    Steve, 10/22/2014 In Oregon we have sword fern continually showing up in our flower beds. I hated digging them up to remove them... Not any more... My new super penetrating shovel made short work of this job. Their tough root system didn't stand a chance. I love it.
  • The “Yeoman”

    Mark Foretich, 8/29/2014 I named my new Super-Penetration Shovel “Yeoman” because he's earned my respect. I took a job uprooting hundreds of sapling trees, and it was slow-going until I got my hands on Yeoman. Since the hard work was wearing me down and my regular shovel broke, I had to try something different. With Yeoman, I have transitioned from just working hard to getting the job done. Thank you for making such a tough, well-designed tool.
  • Mill File

    Lorman Lundsten, 4/29/2014 This is a nice new medium coarse file, suitable for removing metal in sharpening or for removing wood in a woodworking project. The handle fit well also.
  • No More Dull Shovels

    Bev, 4/29/2014 I always want shovels to have sharp edges -- it saves so much effort in the garden. This file accomplishes the task in seconds. Now, I sharpen shovels easily during weeks of edging and planting. This file does the work and is a must have!!
  • A Gardening Must

    Mary Ann, 4/9/2014 Our house was built on what was once a riverbed. Dig down a few inches and you encounter hard clay, pebbles and rocks. Frankly, I don't know how we planted anything before getting this shovel. It cuts through our tough ground much more easily and mix in good topsoil and mulch. I have a feeling our vegetable garden will be much more productive this year.
  • No More Dull Shovels

    Bev, 12/30/2013 I always want shovels to have sharp edges -- it saves so much effort in the garden. This file accomplishes the task in seconds. Now, I sharpen shovels easily during weeks of edging and planting. This file does the work and is a must have!!

  • The Ultimate Shovel

    Joshua Bourdeau, 5/30/2013 I had acquired one of this companies shovels about 11 years ago, and when I saw that I could purchase MORE shovels I jumped on it! I ordered two of these, and as like the first one from 11 years ago, you CANNOT hurt it! My favorite is when digging, is to put the blade under a boulder and then jump on the handle a watch the boulder pop out of the ground, works every time! I cannot stress enough how you will NEVER buy another shovel at the hardware store ever again! Oh, and it makes cake out of hard pack clay soil. BUY MORE THAN ONE!
  • Great Shovel

    Sarah, 7/23/2012 The sharp edge of this shovel helps cut through weeds/roots. Great for separating ferns and other overgrown plants without excessive force or strength. Love it.
  • Shovel Review

    Bob, 12/10/2011 I love quality tools and this shovel is an example of a life long garden friend.
  • Zombie Killer

    Steve Parker, 5/19/2011 I think this is the perfect melee weapon to have on hand when the Zombies rise up to claim the world. I'm ready!
  • Zombie Shovel

    John Wayne, 5/17/2011 I am ordering one for the zombie outbreak that is bound to happen. Should make for an interesting melee weapon.
