I know this kinda sounds like a strange question, but has anyone had recent trouble with shovels? We do quite a bit of irrigation repairs and landscaping. I have been using a couple of fiberglass handle shovels we bought several years back, one was from Lesco, and one from somewhere else but they were pretty much the same. The one from Lesco was like four years old. It finally broke a couple of weeks back. <p>I purchased two more Ames that looked about like the one from Lesco. One broke the handle within days the other fragged the blade part. So I bought a Hisco (heavier), and damn if it didn't have broken blade within two days. They all have True Temper blades, the Hisco was heavier. By broke I mean the collar, has like torn and cracked down the blade. They look like they've been run over. Have they really started making these things cheap or am I just beating the crap out of these things.
