Cable laying shovel

"Excellent. Nice sturdy shovel. Used it for fencing posts. No worries about the shaft breaking. Like all Spear and Jackson products, I imagine having this a long time."

Handy additional spade
16 Apr 2011
By fincher
, Stroud
"Using this spade to dig trenches in narrow places and to remove clay in thick slices.
It feels strong to use and does not give any signs of bending....it's from the "neverbend" range by Spear and Jackson although this is not obvious from the product write up.
Sounds obvious, but because it's narrow, you don't have a very wide foot-hold, however this hasn't caused any issues."
