      Very helpful



      Useful garden tool.

      I bought this garden tool as a surprise for my husband. He loves both hand and electric tools, and is a Geordie to boot. With our garden requiring lots of reorganising, it was only natural for me to buy this Newcastle drain shovel from Spear & Jackson. I ordered it online from Robert Dyas. It's currently retailing for approximately £16.

      Over the years we've bought a number of products made by Spear & Jackson, and have found their hand tools to be robust and reliable. One would hope this would be the case - apparently they have been around since 1760. There's a lovely history about the Sheffield-based organisation at www.spear-and-jackson.com/about-us

      This shovel is designed for digging holes, trenches and drains. It's made from an epoxy-coated carbon steel and it's total length is just over a metre long. The blade section is 405 x 165 x 105mm.

      We have both found that this shovel is easy to use. I've used it for digging holes, in a fashion similar to an auger, while my husband has used it to develop a garden drainage system.

      The small surface area of the blade section ensures that the shovel is not too difficult to manoeuvre when "loaded". It's also easy enough to clean and dry after use, and doesn't take up too much space in our shed.

      We are happy with this item, and cannot see us having the need to replace it for sometime. However should the need arise to do so, yes we would buy it again.
