What is the Bulldog Treaded Digging Spade like to use?
A high quality, tough spade this is hardworking and was loved by our testers who were used to a traditional weighty tool. Features are well considered – the handle is comfortable; the treads are wide and flat and give great purchase and the rivets on the shaft are flush and smooth to the touch. Perfect for heavier digging jobs, it feels like it could dig forever. However, the shorter shaft was noticed by taller testers while others found its weight tiring.
Will the Bulldog Treaded Digging Spade last?
The carbon blade has a coating to prevent rusting, a long socket to prevent snapping and the wooden shaft has been vanished to protect it from the weather. Every inch of this heavy duty spade feels strong, resilient and hard wearing.
