    I use to work for a place that got these shovels and they are excellent. Problem being that they have cheap models, okay models, and then the really good ones. It's difficult going by the descriptions on their website because their wordings don't interpret well. From the pictures I see on the site (not the one you posted link to) none of them are the ones I use to use.

    The ones I am looking for have a handle you cannot break. We cut an old one open once and the handle was solid...not hollow like a fiberglass one. The spade had a continuous steel shaft that came up the first 10 inches or so of the handle as one piece. The pics I see posted have some huge rubber looking piece that only comes up the handle like 4 or 5 inches.

    I think I have some pics of these shovels ....kind of anyhow....let's see

    I'm just looking for the model number of these so I can order them
