This exceptionally strong, durable, and efficient tool will make your time in the trenches as short as possible. A unique, flat-bottomed blade is designed with one-inch sides, allowing diggers to pick up (and retain) more dirt with each shovel stroke. These deep sides also lend structural strength and prevent dirt build-up in corners. The four-inch-wide blade is made from 13-gauge steel for unparalleled strength and features a v-angled head for effective penetration into the soil. A sharpened edge shaves the bottom of the trench smooth and prevents damage to installed pipes. The four-foot handle is made from sturdy American ash and is ergonomically designed to an angle that minimizes bending, reduces back strain, and improves digging efficiency.

I decided to exchange the trenching shovel within the allowed timeframe and the replacement was shipped and received within 2 days of submitting the exchange request. The replacement has no damage, but the shovel was still shipped loosely in the same sized cardboard box as the first shovel. Overall, if you dont mind the possibility of receiving a damaged product and having to delay a trenching job so that you can exchange it, I think this shovel is about the best quality you can get for the money. I have revised my rating from 4 stars to 5 stars due to the hassle free exchange process. Read below for my original review.
I researched trenching shovels yo find what I believed was the best compromise between price, quality, and durability. And while I do not believe I made a bad choice with this Corona 4in Trench Shovel, I am concerned that the wood handle was either damaged in the warehouse or during shipping due to the fact that there was no packing material or plastic wrap securing/protecting the loose shovel in the cardboard box it shipped in.
The shovel arrived with mild damage to the box and several dents/scaring and a quarter sized splintering crack in the handle at the exact area where your hand would be during routine use of the shovel. Reference the images I attached to the review for tge worst of the damage. I will need to either sand this damage down or put a handle wrap around this area to make it safer to use.
Considering that any shovel can be broken under extreme conditions or incorrect/abusive use, I feel that the over all design of the shovel is better and more durable than what I could find at my local home improvement stores, all of which only sold trenching shovels with fiberglass handles or with a thinner 14 gauge steel blade. This product being made with a traditional wood handle and a thicker 12 gauge steel blade make it stonger and more durable than the competition. To add even more strength to the shovel design Corona has stamped two elongated divots that serve to stiffen up the already thicker steel blade. I purchased this shovel for trenching irrigation pipes and underground electrical conduits.
This shovel works best when paired with a standard spade shovel to remove grass and help form the initial opening of the trench. Once the soil is exposed the trench shovel helps to both clear the soil from the trench and form clean trench walls. When large rocks and tree roots are encountered, you should use a digging iron, axe, or pick-axe to clear the obstruction rather than the trenching shovel which is only suitable for prying on small fist-sized rocks or shrub roots no larger than your pinky.
In the end I will still give a good overall rating for this shovel, but I deducted one star for the poor condition it arrived in. I would expect this kind of result if the product was sold in a damaged-clearance product catagory and not in the new condition as it was adverised. Only time will tell if it lives up to my expectations. I just wish the warehouse would improve their quality assurance, product handling and/or shipping practices to prevent this from happening.
Seems very sturdy. I have hundreds more feet to do so I'll update if anything goes wrong with the tool.

The length of the handle saved my back and the pointed end helped to penetrate the #$&* CLAY!
Made a miserable job a little less miserable!
