Shovels are needed for everything- from getting leaves into bags, to digging into soil, to digging in to anything, to picky up things. Rigid, the construction equipment company, has produced this very heavy duty shovel for all of us- and I have much to say about it, .
This shovel is very good. It holds alot and since it's made of aluminum, it gives you heavy duty work for a much lighter weight, a relief for weak people like me who want to carry heavy stuff! I used it for getting leaf piles into bags! It's really effective, but it gives you blisters if you don't wear gloves since it has absolutely no grip at all except for a small handle at the back that no ones is really going to use anyways. (I really do wonder why they made it).
Rigid is a good company who has produced a good shovel. I think the only cons about it are the fact that it has no ergonomic grip to give your hands some rest. But besides that, this shovel is very effective!
