" Small so won't shovel as much as the S&J all-steel 2001AD but is a great addition to have in a collection of shovels. Round leading edge allows the blade to cut into material including hard-core much easier than straight blade shovels and therefore easier on the back and reduces fatigue. Ideal for small restricted access work, digging around drains, cables, pipes, etc. Also best shovel for mixing concrete in a wheel barrow, small, no corners, light handle, easy to fold the mix. Blade is quite thick so not as light as S&J claim. They actually weigh 2.5kg, about the same as the larger all-steel round edge 2001AD, not 2.15kg. Check the rivet pinning the handle to the blade sleeve as these are machine pressed and are sometimes found with a sharp protruding burr that you can slice your hand on. Before using, finish the riveting with a ball pein hammer, gently hammering down the burr with the rounded end. I can't find this shovel cheaper anywhere else unlike the all steel range that are almost a third of the price elsewhere. According to S&J these shovels have just been made obsolete so recommend buying one from Screwfix while you can and don’t let anyone borrow it. "
