The Faithfull Essentials Digging Spade has a head manufactured from heat-treated (hardened) carbon steel to provide both strength and durability. The polypropylene and powder-coated finish provide improved resistance to rust, scratches, humidity and alkalis in the soil. The handle is manufactured from tubular steel with a hard-wearing polypropylene coating, making it comfortable to use.
Aimed at the homeowner, where quality, frequency of use and price are key considerations. Mainly used where a large patch of open ground requires digging or turning over. The larger blade is ideal for double digging, spading up the ground, preparing beds, moving soil and other loose material. The semi-flat blade design of the spade permits it to be used as an edging tool and is tough enough for slicing through compacted soil and roots. Blades feature a treaded top to spread the load, reducing fatigue and help avoid footwear damage.
