Garden spade tools are used in cultivation, terracing, contouring, and aid in such tasks as drainage and more.
What is a garden spade?
Don’t call it a shovel, as the spade is an altogether different implement. It is an all-purpose tool that most gardeners can’t live without. Ergonomic design makes using a garden spade less difficult and modern tools are increasingly being fashioned for comfort but also to accommodate certain handicaps and physical stresses
- Reinforced Steel - The reinforced forged steel head is an alloy of carbon and iron that is compressed under extreme pressure to make a very hard and strong substance, hardened and tempered for durability. The bonus of forged steel is that the metal becomes stronger than equivalent types that are cast or machined
- The Handle - Fibreglass handles are tougher and can take more punishment than traditional wooden handles. They have great shock absorption properties and are very durable. One big advantage that fibreglass handles have over wooden handles is that they are not nearly as sensitive to the environment. A fibreglass handled shovel can fall into muck, spend the night in the back of a pickup truck in freezing conditions, be covered in oil and still look as good as new.
- The Shaft - Staplefords Spade has a durable steel shaft that is perfect for heavy-duty work. This shovel is easy to use being well balanced and sturdy without being heavy. Overall, this is a sturdy, light weight garden spade that is suitable for a wide range of heavy duty jobs.
