The Fiskars long-handle steel digging shovel makes it easy to dig into tough soil without sore knees from kneeling or back strain from bending. The welded steel construction is far more durable than wood and won’t flex like fiberglass. A sharpened blade cuts into dense soil easily, an extra-large foot platform helps maximize force to break up hardened soil clods, and a teardrop-shaped shaft profile provides exceptional comfort and control.

This shovel is very stiff even when I put my full weight on it to pry dirt out of the hole. I do not feel like it will break. The wide foot pads are comfortable to jump on even in rubber boots with minimal foot support. The handles does not seem any longer than other standard shovels and is a comfortable girth and shape. The angle of the head is good. One of the only drawbacks I can think of is the fact that it did not come sharpened. This is a minor inconvenience that anyone with a little DIY skill can take care of. It was also poorly packaged and hanging out of the box a little bit.
On a funny note, it does conduct electricity. I was digging up a pipe in some moist ground when I lost my balance and by instinct grabbed for the closest object to steady myself which happened to be an electric fence that I have for my cattle. I got shocked both where I touched the wire and the hand that I was grounded through the shovel with. At least no one was around to hear me yell.
I bought my first one a little over a year ago and managed to slightly bend or warp the shaft where it meets the head. I took a picture and submitted a claim, and I received a brand new shovel with no extra money from me within 2 weeks. Eventually I did break the original, but the backup they sent me has seen heavy use in the past year.
Unfortunately, while preparing a spot on our lawn for a pool by removing tree roots and unfairly using my "world's best shovel" as a tool of leverage, I heard a snap like a gunshot and realized I had killed again.
Because service was so great last time, I decided to put in another warranty request, I mean, it does say lifetime warranty. I also bought a second one via Amazon prime because I wanted it quickly and I wanted to support such a great shovel.
I expected to be denied but behold I had a brand new replacement shovel only two days later than prime got me a new shovel. It is rare that a company would have such a great blanket warranty and a great product. Now I am the proud owner of two of these great shovels.
I was never tired from the weight of the shovel, in fact, the extra weight makes snapping roots in half much easier. I look forward to projects which require the use of this shovel.
Only con I can think of is that because it is all steel it does send quite a shock to your hands and it can make blisters develop rather quickly, but a pair of gloves resolves that problem.
The Fiskars Long Handle Digging Shovel is a cut above normal shovels. First, I am a huge Fiskars fan. I own their scissors, axes, and anything I can get my hands on. Fiskars has never let me down yet with their quality and this shovel is no different. From the second I took it out of the box to the second I tried digging with it I knew I had found the shovel I had never realized I was missing. Prying in this rock hard dirt is nothing for this heavy duty shovel and can handle anything and any type of dirt on my property. If you are looking for a shovel and have tough dirt on your property, do yourself a favor and forget about those old $15 wooden handled shovels you grew up with and buy one of these beasts. Like me, you'll be so glad you did!
I am very hard on tools. I managed to rip the tip of the shovel while using it to try to pry out bedrock while digging for a retaining wall (it took a lot of effort - not normal wear and tear). I looked on the web and found the Fiskars website. I was able to submit a claim and uploaded a picture of the ripped shovel. I was dubious about the claim and thought it would end up going into a black hole and not being addressed. A little over a week later a new shovel appeared at my door. I was very pleased and will only buy Fiskars tools from now on.
