Information

Nursery spade has superior prying strength

  • Nursery spade blade easily cuts through hard, compacted soil
  • Reinforced blade eliminates flexing
  • USA made

Mill-sharpened blade easily cuts through soil and has a cushion footpad that can be moved from one side to the other for better digging leverage.

    Comments about Straight Blade Nursery Spade w/ D-handle:

    This is a heavy shovel that is great at getting down through perennial roots. You wouldn't want to dig a big hole with it due to its weight, but when it comes time to divide perennials or transplant a shrub, this will let you get a large root ball.

    Comments about Straight Blade Nursery Spade w/ D-handle:

    I bought it mainly for burying underground wires and root pruning. It was a supprise how heavy it was the first time I picked it up. This is what I want in a trenching shovel-let the tool do the work.I am concerned about the weld between the handle and the blade. It's a good weld, but my concern is with constant use as a lever the weld will break. I bought this to replace an ACE Hardware shovel when the blade folded in 1/2 the first time I jumped on it to prune some roots. I've always bought Razorback shovels in the past so I'm used to the forged one piece construction. [...] I expect them to simply based on the price.
