Pedigree Long Handled Stainless Steel Digging Spade
01279 401570 for stockists pedigreegarden.co.uk Features
FSC-certified ash shaft and handle with steel reinforced ‘D’ grip. Shaft riveted into stainless-steel socket and blade with scored treads. Weight 4lb 11∕2oz (1.86kg). Blade 111∕4x7in (29x18cm). Overall length 433∕4in (111cm).
Feels light and long. Shaft and handle offer nice grip – the raised rivets and socket edge are noticeable, but are no problem when digging. The blade slips into the soil easily and lifts a wellproportioned spit that’s controllable and easy to flip. Good leverage from the long handle. Wet soil sticks a bit, but pushes off easily.
Slightly more expensive than the Burgon & Ball spade, but it’s an equally classy and polished performer.
