Ideal for using in more confined spaces and the shorter gardeners among us, this robust and hard-working spade comes with a lifetime guarantee from British makers Burgon & Ball. Endorsed for quality and fitness for purpose by the Royal Horticultural Society, this spade has over 90kg breaking strain - almost double 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. As an RHS-endorsed stainless steel tool, this spade also has a lifetime guarantee.
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 98cm (38.6 inches) in length and has a head that is 14cm (5.5 inches) in width and has a 23cm (9 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.
