A robust, hard-working spade with a lifetime guarantee from makers Burgon & Ball. Endorsed by the Royal Horticultural Society, it has been tested for strain at over 100kg, beating the British standard of just 55kg.
The handle is made from responsibly sourced FSC certified hardwood, and the blade from hardened steel to keep its edge and form.
Other features include a double-riveted Y handle for strength and comfort, a long handle to reduce back strain and wide comfort tread to protect feet. The strapped, double-riveted and double-gauge socket gives flexibility at the key joint and the mirror polished blade means there is minimum resistance in soil.
The spade measures 111cm (43.7 inches) in length and has head that is 18cm (7.1 inches) in width and has a 29cm (11.4 inches) length.
Burgon & Ball began making high-quality tools in Sheffield in 1730 and remains at the cutting edge of garden tool innovation and design.
