Ideal piece of kit

" Bought to dig a trench in chicken pen. Easily got through clay and gravel mix. Heavy enough to bite through and light enough to swing. Price is way cheaper than competitors and the brand is good too "

Great bit of kit

" Bought to help remove a deep rooted Ivy, which had proved difficult with a spade. I was able to to get down to the base and chop away and leaver the large root ball out. Also used again for other well established shrubs to good effect. Like the good grip handle. "

Excellent Bit of Kit
1 Dec 2015
By
, Norfolk
" Bought this on a whim when digging out two soakaways. In the event it was an ideal purchase as the ground below 1m deep was huge flints and compacted gravel and sand. A digging spade would just bounce off this layer, jarring my wrists and forearms. This mattock however, would 'scoop' out and dislodge the flints (smashing them to bits in some cases), breaking the hard layer into diggable chunks. The only issue I had was it was a bit unwieldy in a smallish, deep hole (soakaway)- for the corners its little brother, the micro pick came into play. For open digging and trench work the 5lb-er will be fine- it will be pressed into action on the drain trenches for sure! "

Fibreglass handled mattock
8 Nov 2015
By
, Yorkshire
" This is really fun to use !..Much better than trying to excavate with a spade. The fibreglass is easier to grip than a wooden handle mattock.
Also it is great for getting rid of aggro..on days when you have just had enough of people annoying you.........go and excavate with one of these !!!!!!!!

Brilliant bit of kit
23 Sep 2015
By
, Stafford
" This bit of kit is fantastic, I'm digging out a 32ftx18ft patio area in my garden and it is making such light work of it. It's light and easy to manoeuvre but just enough weight to penetrate the soil and clay with ease. Great job Roughneck as usual. "

Perfect
14 Sep 2015
By
, Porthtowan
" I was busy digging a large amount of earth from the front garden using a pick and spade.
Hard work then i remembered that sometime in the past I had used a Mattock for a similar job.
Sure enough Screwfix had the ideal tool in stock. Collected it from the local store and used it to complete the job in a couple of hours.
Strong and capable to dig into soil clay and the occasional buried concrete.
Job done, within a couple of hours instead of days. Perfect.

Mini Mattock's bigger brother!
6 Sep 2015
By
, East Midlands
" I bought the mini mattock, and was so impressed with that I bought the larger one too! It has made taking up a lawn and digging through clay so much easier. It's got a nice weight to it, and feels very strong. Much better than using a spade...and a lot more fun too! "

Ideal tool
24 Aug 2015
By
, 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. "
