Heavy duty planting spades with blades made from 3mm thick stainless steel, heat treated to Rockwell C 38-45. Total length (tip to top of handle): 88cm. Weight 1.5kg. Blade size: 22.5cm long x 11cm wide at top, tapering slightly to 9cm wide towards the bottom of the blade. Pointed tip makes penetration easier. Optimal amount of crank and offset, allowing the handle to stay closer to the body making the spade easier to use and safer. The length of the spade can be shortened by unscrewing the yellow D handle and cutting the shaft to the desired length, then rescrewing the handle back on (pre-drill a screw hole in the shaft).
