Product Description

Package Quantity: 1

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.

I saw the Fiskars shovel described as "The Perfect Shovel" in Mother Earth News. On that basis I tracked one down at the local hardware superstore.

Just came in from using it yet again and I can say that it is the best shovel I have ever used, a superior tool in every way. The built-in (wide and textured) stomp edge makes it easy to stand upon for penetration, the one-piece handle has no rough/pinch points, and the shape of the blade is a good balance between penetration and load capacity. The blade makes short work of roots -- I have many times easily gone through roots over 2 inches, roots which previously would have seen me resorting to another tool. (The first time I sliced through a thick root with it my jaw actually dropped, and I checked to see if the root was rotten.) I have also used the shovel in situations where I really should have gone to get a prybar, with no sign of stress on the shovel.

I've had this shovel for going on 2 years now, and the only signs of wear are the powder-coating is worn off back from the tip a few inches and scratched off the back of the handle. That's it -- no nicks, bends, or tip wear in the blade, no bends in the handle. And as I write this I realize this is the first shovel that I have never had to sharpen. There has been no tendency to rust.

The shovel comes with a plastic sleeve starting at the blade and going about a foot up the handle. During one heavy session this sleeve sliced on a sharp rock and peeled back from the handle. But this had no effect on comfort in using the shovel -- the handle is smooth and well-shaped anyway. (The shape of the handle makes for less hand fatigue than a round handle.)

This shovel has seen steady use around our property.

After having broken maybe 6 wooden or fiberglass-handle shovels, I have acquired the "wisdom" that you get what you pay for. I admit, I used it to pry out a tree stump, so it's my fault, but this product first bent along the shaft, and then ultimately sheared and broke near the weld. That said, it has been the best shovel I've owned, and even if it didn't come with a warranty, I would probably go back and buy the same thing. Now for the amazing part...

I called up their customer service, and within 3 minutes, they had my shipping information and told me they are sending me a brand new one! They didn't even want the old one back. Wow! I am now a huge fan of this brand and will be replacing my other tools with Fiskars, which all seem to be well-designed, built, and come with a lifetime warranty.

This shovel is definitely not a toy. It's big and it's heavy, but it's strong and looks like it will last many years. I've used it for normal gardening and landscaping. It's got a curve and a point so it's not great for edging, but it will turn up clay and move plenty of dirt. The shaft is shaped like a teardrop so it's comfortable, but I'm a tall guy and I'm not sure how it will fit in smaller hands.

My yard is full of hard clay and lots of rocks. For simple gardening, I can usually get by with a wood- or fiberglass-handle shovel. But if I need to dig down a ways, or pry out a rotted fence pole, or dig out one of the many stumps we have in the mulched area, ordinary shovels break. I went through 2 or 3 a year, even trying to go easy on them. Then I saw this all-steel shovel, for the same price as the others, and tried it. Here's what I found after a couple good work-outs:
- It's not unbreakable, but it will take a lot of hard use. I tried to lever out a medium-sized stump, and could feel the handle start to give as I put my full weight (250 lbs) on it. So it won't replace a 6' steel bar for the big jobs. But it easily dug out many rocks, and a couple of smaller stumps, without a problem.
- It's heavy. No, really, it's heavy! Spend a couple of hours digging with this puppy, and your shoulders will ache like never before. You'll get a lot more done than you could have with other shovels, but you sure are going to feel it.
Bottom line: If you have an ordinary shovel now, and have never broken it, you probably don't need this one. And if you are only going to buy one shovel, don't get this. But if you already have a regular shovel for the day-to-day chores, and need a "nuclear option" for the really ugly jobs, do yourself a favour and buy one of these, before you break any more handles. Very highly recommended.

Bought this shovel for gold mining. Only con is it is heavy... but that does make it damn near indestructible! Handles clay, mud, rocks, gravel, and pretty much whatever you throw at it. Can't beat the price for a very tough shovel!

Feb 16 UPDATE: I beat this shovel up pretty good and it took the beating well, but I was working in a rocky area and I guess applied a little to much force trying to dislodge a rock and the shovel cracked. Fiskars replaced under warranty, no questions asked. Fantastic customer service!

This entire Fiskars binge began with a hoe [incredible product] and then a rake [excllent] and eventually have replaced nearly entire outdoor garden tool set with Fiskars.

My husband said we didn't need another shovel but I was so happy with the other garden tools that I bought this for myself...I've not been able to use it once because he immediately adopted it. According to him it 'digs itself". I'm not exactly sure what that means but he brags about the weight and balance - says it makes it so much easier. The same applies for the square shovel. Super nice weight, well balanced, Comfortable.

While it might initially seem counter-intuitive to buy a heavy shovel...it actually is much easier to work with than a light weight shovel. The weight allows maximum efficiency so you don't need to strain and struggle to break the earth - it does the work for you. He has a tendency to have lower back pain when working (age related) and within an hour this became his new favorite shovel....he quickly insisted on buying the square head equivalent (every bit as good).

The other major difference is the long handle. It seems more and more tools are trying to scrimp by on less material - this is a very solid, very heavy item with an extra nice long handle that is perfect for those who are a bit on the tall side. It also has the rolled edge to keep the foot from slipping...lots of nice little extra's that set this apart from the rest.

Very pleased with the Fiskars line of garden tools - either buy two or don't let your husband borrow it...you won't get it back
