Cousin to the ever-popular and economical Golden Shovel, this is also a strong yet extremely lightweight tool. Lightweight is a most welcome feature when shovelling yards of heavy gravel, sand or compost.
Holds more material than a standard shovel if you like to power through a pile, and the flat edge allows you to easily scoop up material.
I like the short shaft and d-handle for shovelling and spreading from a wheelbarrow, it's less strain on the back and shoulders when the shovel is held closer to the body.
The comfortable d-handle is made of tubular steel and the rigid steel pipe shaft won’t bend or flex under heavy loads.
Please note - the wide, flat blade means this is not a good tool for digging. Check out the Golden Spade if you need to dig holes.
