Why is this shovel better?

It's better because it's stronger, because it is designed properly, and because it will last much longer than hardware store shovels.

The hollow back blade (shovel head) is formed from one piece of thick 14 gauge carbon steel. It features forward turned steps for secure contact with your foot. The professional grade handle has a thick fiberglass outer tube, with a solid fiberglass core in the critical lower area where head and handle connect.

A shovel built this way will last a long time. You can safely do a little prying with it to get out those roots and rocks (just don't go crazy, that's what pry bars are for). You can leave it in the back of your truck all year, and it won't rot like a wooden handled shovel. The kind of use and abuse that will destroy half a dozen inexpensive wooden hardware store shovels will barely scratch this tool.


What is a Round Point shovel used for?

This style is also called a "Combination Shovel" because it works well for both digging AND scooping.

Digging - The round point shovel is the type most commonly for digging in the US. The pointed tip works well for breaking hard soils, as well as cutting through sod. (Tip: file the blade sharp) The dish in the blade allows a good amount of soil to be lifted from a hole. For digging a narrow shallow trench for drainage or utility lines, our Sharp Shooter shovel (drain spade) is a better choice.

Scooping - The round point shovel can effectively move piles of loose material (soil, gravel, mulch) to a new area or into a wheelbarrow. It is fairly easy to plunge into a pile, and the blade-to-handle angle (medium lift) reduces bending while shoveling. For scraping and scooping material from a flat surface (pavement, truck bed) our square-point shovel is a better choice.



Benefits of Fiberglass Handles...

  • Greater strength pound for pound than steel.
  • They are very difficult to damage.
  • Resists impact, and is non-denting.
  • Will not absorb moisture or warp.
  • Will not conduct electricity.

HISCO's fiberglass handles have a legacy of premium performance. All HISCO handles are produced from thousands of continuous strands of fiberglass saturated with resins, and have a smooth polyester veil (coating) on the surface. The veil gives the handle a smooth comfortable finish and keeps the fiberglass from splintering or scratching. The D-Grips, used on short handled tools, are made of one-piece high-density nylon.

The long handled digging shovels feature the 8-inch Tuffoam double-dip grips which have been designed for the toughest industrial applications. The grips have a durable, vinyl inner liner and a comfortable, non-slip foam exterior that provides long life and helps prevent potential harmful hand fatigue.

Customer Testimonials

I've bought several tools from easy digging - I've been super happy with every single one of them. They are such better tools than you can find in any of the retail big-box stores.
Mike K in MI

I have both sizes of the grub hoe and the fork hoe. They all work great in the garden, yard and around the farm. The grub hoes have heavy heads that dig into the dense black clay where I live. I recommend these tools to my friends and neighbors.
