where to buy hand tools

I am looking for a place to buy hand tools (shovels, rakes and etc) online. Or does everyone just buy home depot and lowes stuff. Looking for decent prices.

I go to one of my local suppliers, they sell tools at a discount to contractors in the warehouse area. They also have the more heavy duty tools in the warehouse, that is beneath the main store. I get a regular fiberglass shovel for $9, wooden handle shovel is $10, good mulch rakes $20-25. They have one piece welded steel spades starting at $75 for a long handle.

There is an Old Blue Chair for each and every one of us, we just have to find it.

I've used Lowes and AMLeonard. IMO, if you want high quality that lasts, find someone who deals Wolverine tools. Their steel tools will take a beating and last a while, or forever if used right.

One of the best line of tools comes from w.w. Manufacturing Co. Inc. at 1-800-452-5547 I don't think you can buy from their web site but you can get catalog and then phone. I got a couple and the handles are steel. It is the kind of thing that will last a lifetime.

Look under structron and seymour hand tool's for shovel's.


The most heavy-duty and heaviest shovel there is.


My favorite shovel, but also the most expensive.
