I break the wooden handles of $10 garden shovels like they were toothpicks. So when I searched for my latest replacement garden spade, I was determined to find an indestructible garden shovel and pay whatever price was asked for it. And I found a virtually indestructible garden spade at Lowe's. The Fiskars Garden Spade features all-steel construction, and it comes with a lifetime warranty. If the spade ever breaks, Fiskars will replace it for free. The steel blade is sharpened, and it cuts through tree roots and compacted soil with such surprising ease that you'll wonder what's wrong with all of the other garden shovels that they can't be like this one.
I've used the Fiskars Garden Spade to chop through the roots and pry up several stubborn tree stumps now, and the handle of the spade hasn't even bent let alone broken. The flat blade and oversized handle makes it easy to edge my gardens and turn the soil. The Fiskars Garden Spade is very comfortable to hold and work with, resulting in fewer blisters on my hands after a hard day's work. And even after a year of sitting out in my garage, there's still not a lick of rust on it. It's well worth the extra money to buy a Fiskars Garden Spade.
