What is the Burgon and Ball RHS-Endorsed Digging Spade like?

A traditionally designed digging spade with a stainless steel blade complete with treads, a long socket and a good length FSC certified hardwood shaft and Y shaped handle.

What is the Burgon and Ball RHS-Endorsed Digging Spade like to use?

This is a nicely designed spade that feels well balanced, digs sharply and well with good leverage and has a comfortable handle and good length shaft.

However, the strapped socket and raised rivets on the shaft snagged on hands when lifting and turning the earth and testers felt the treads were too narrow to stop slipping on wet muddy digs.

Will the Burgon and Ball RHS-Endorsed Digging Spade last?

The stainless steel blade and long, lipped socket are rust resistant and double riveted to the weatherproofed handle for extra strength. This spade feels sturdy and tough and definitely built to last

Is the Burgon and Ball RHS-Endorsed Digging Spade good value for money?

Towards the top end of the midrange bracket but with long lasting features and a lifetime guarantee we think this spade is good value for money.

Who is the Burgon and Ball RHS-Endorsed Digging Spade most useful for?

For gardeners who like a long lasting, good looking spade for everyday digging jobs.
