I use a bullhead, but I like a 5" for some reason. A sharpshooter is probably my favorite. Anyone know what the difference is between a sharpshooter and a drain spade?JonHolland said:I use 4" and 6" bullhead trenching shovels with wooden handles.
I've found that most other brands end up breaking, but I've yet to break a bullhead.
What exactly are you using your shovel for, that you are less affective using your body weight?? Unless you are digging through sand, the shovel would have to be so heavy that you would need Popeye arms, or maybe I'm missing something??RI Ohio said:Nothing shows laziness like a worker using their foot on the shovel when digging. The heavy shovels you should never need to use your feet.
