The pointed blade of this robust and hard-working spade cuts through hard and stony soil. It comes with a lifetime guarantee from British makers Burgon & Ball and is endorsed for quality and fitness for purpose by the Royal Horticultural Society. It has also been tested at over 90kg breaking strain - almost double the British standard of just 55kg.
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 head that is 18cm (7.1 inches) in width and has a 23.5cm (9.25 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.
