Ideal tool
24 Aug 2015
By SafetyGuy
, Midlands
" The task was to dig out some extensive bamboo roots. I bought this mattock on recommendation and it has been the ideal tool for the job, light enough to generate a good swing and substantial enough to cut through some very tough roots. A difficult job made easier by using the right tool. The grip on the fibreglass handle is a definite improvement on the old style wooden shaft. "

Monty was right
30 Apr 2015
By TheOriginalSilverback
, Warwickshire
" I read an article by Monty Don saying that every gardener should have one of these for digging and clearing. I had several old connifers to uproot so I got this. Attracted by the price and previous reviews. Great product, easy to assemble and much easier to use than a spade. "

Great tool
29 Mar 2015
By themightywebb
, Woking
" Unlike other reviewers who all seem to use this for digging out roots etc, I needed to get rid of a concrete shed base. The mattock was light and I could swing it with ease. It smashed up the concrete in about 90 minutes which was excellent. I would recommend this to anyone who had a similar job to do "

Excellent bit of gear
5 Mar 2015
By Stu1
, Sussex
" Been needing and wanting one of these since I borrowed one a few months ago. Spent ages looking for one which had good price and reviews. As usual Screwfix has come through with a great product. Made light work of the apple tree stump I had to remove, got three feet under ground to the roots. good hand and works well. It is heavy though to be warned, use with proper manual handing (I have achy back now - but that's my own fault) "

" To be honest, there is not much that can go wrong with a mattock but this does seem to be a good one. It's comfortable to use, the handle doesn't slip and the business end is pretty meaty. "
