The real joy of this super-tough garden spade is its pointed, sharpened head, which slices easily through the most challenging ground. If it meets a stone or root as it cuts down through the soil, it simply passes the obstruction to the side, taking the hard work out of digging in hard or stony soils. The mirror-polished stainless steel head gives rust resistance and clean movement through the soil. Wide comfort treads at the top of the blade prevent any discomfort for feet, allowing you to really dig deep.
The FSC certified hardwood handle has a comfortable 'Y' grip, double riveted at the base for strength. An extra-long, double-riveted strapped socket introduces strength and an element of flex at this key joint. This distinctive spade has been tested to a breaking strain of 90kg, compared with the British standard of 55kg.
The Burgon & Ball stainless steel small Groundbreaker spade is endorsed by the Royal Horticultural Society, perhaps the ultimate accolade in gardening. Like all our RHS-endorsed stainless steel tools, this small Groundbreaker spade is covered by our lifetime guarantee.
