What is the Pedigree Stainless Steel Rabbiting Spade like?

This is a traditional-looking spade with a narrow, tapered, stainless steel blade that has textured treads. It has a long, strapped socket riveted to the FSC-certified ash shaft and the YD-handle is capped for extra strength.

What is the Pedigree Stainless Steel Rabbiting Spade like to use?

This spade feels well balanced and it’s perfect for trenching and digging and planting in narrow spots. The stainless steel blade is easy to clean and the textured treads help the feet grip the blade and will protect the soles of your boots. The socket does snag hands as you dig and the cap rivets on the handle get in the way during some digging tasks.

The stainless steel blade is rust resistant and the strapped socket double riveted for extra strength. Both the ash handle and shaft are weatherproofed, and the handle also has stainless steel caps for extra protection. The spade feels strong and long lasting.

In the mid-range price bracket this well-designed spade comes with a lifetime warranty. We think it’s good value for money.

Who is the Pedigree Stainless Steel Rabbiting Spade most useful for?

Great for gardeners who like a good looking, easy-to-handle spade and have trenching jobs or need to plant or dig in crowded borders.
