AM Leonard. I bought steel handled spades from them about 10(+) years ago. Paid a heck of a lotta money for them. Other than 1 or 2 disappearing - we haven't had to replace one yet........

id like 1 for shrub removal only.lol i hate how wooden shafts only allow minimal presure for "popping" roots. solid steel seems great!

You can also get long handled spades made of all steel that are great for prying on roots and other stuff. lol!

We pay $55 for our metal D spades made by wolverine

I love these shovels except when you hit a rock and it feels like your hand is going to shatter.

we have one that my wife picked up that we call the punisher. its about 13 pounds makes a bad ass prybar. used it to install granite steps the other day great for sliding them into place.

I agree with everyone above. The results justify the cost. They are the only thing I need to remove the root balls from shrubs. I have also seen them run over by trucks and still function well. All that said, they come with a 5 year contractor guarantee, nuff said.
