"Use to dig out 3 big tree stumps. Perfect for getting the soil out, cutting through roots and using it as leverage. The handle is very strong and removed all vibrations which is excellent. Great grip means I never had an issue with letting go and the tool ending up in a neighbors windscreen. Handle does flex a bit, but no sign of fracturing and I was putting about 100kg of force into it."
"Perfect for any kind of difficult digging in hard or rocky ground. Ideal for removing rotten stumps and putting in fence posts.
Great steel, strong but easy to sharpen with a good metal file.
The tools can easily be taken apart for cleaning or storage, just hold them by the handle with the head facing down (but off the ground) and give them a smart tap on the thin end of the handle with a mallet or club hammer. Then simply slide the head up the handle.
"I purchased the set at the mattock was out of stock, but am glad I did as I live on an old builders yard and needed to remove some large objects from the ground, including a short concrete railway sleeper!!
The mattock was good for most of the work but the pick was also needed to get under the larger objects that the mattock could not get under and lever them out.
I have also used the mattock for removing roots on a steep bank, for cutting rough steps down the slope and for cutting a work path across the slope.
All in all a excellent pair of tools that compliment each other."
"Purchased this twin set, as my local Screwfix did not have separate items at that time, next day delivery only available, pleased that I did get both as I required them to remove large rootball from front garden, having not used fibreglass handles before was a little apprehensive, but need not of been both managed whatever effort I had to use. Would recommend"
"Bought these two items the other day, delivered next day as per the usual excellent Screwfix service. I've been using the pick today is soden clay and heavy rock, it works very well indeed and is very strong. The mattock is also good but best suited for roots and heavy soil without stone of which it would also be very useful.
I'd recommend, far better than .hickory / wooden handles and safer."
"I would recommend the purchase of the twin pack as both tools have their individual tasks but can often be useful in doing the same job. The quality of the product is first class and the the fibreglass handles are comfortable to hold and easy to fit. Plus there is no panic in letting the handle get wet."
"Not too much you can say about these other than they are excellent value for money buying as a set. The handles have comfortable grips, well balanced and they give you alot of confidence to get stuck in with them without the fear of the head slipping during action."
"This is a very good pair of tools and excellent value for money.
I have used the pick to break up a large brick and concrete pond (seriously, you could have kept Free Willy in there) and some low brick walls in the garden. With the mattock I have levelled and turned over about 50 sq. m. of hard clay ground - all good so far.
The fibreglass handles have a bit of flex in them, which is great for absorbing the shock of breaking up concrete, and the rubber handles allow a good grip. I have gone through a good few wooden handles in my time but apart from a few nicks and scratches, these are looking as good as new.
Very pleased - I would definitely buy them again."
"An absolute steal at this price. two heads and 2 fibreglass handles from a famous diy store would have cost in excess of £80. Tools are very robust, took a battering and only got better with use. Highly recommended"
"absolutely terrible quality. "Tough tools for a tough world" - yeah, right.
Probably okay for DIY use and mild gardening, but I had to dig out a 10m3 pond from hardcore for a client; within the first swing, the blade of the mattock had chipped badly from a small stone, and the pick handle gave way 3/4 of the way through."
