does what its made for digging...good quality
its a shovel not self propelled and I had to sand the handle to avoid slivers but it is fine for medium work and price was excelent
I've dug manually for construction jobs in Arizona's hard packed and rocky ground with many different shovels for years. I've also owned and operated my own landscaping and yard care maintenance business in Arizona for 13 years, using many shovels for many different projects during that time. I have plenty of experience with shovels and know them very well.
I would never ever ever buy this shovel again.
I live in Florida now after moving here 1 1/2 years ago, and decided to start a vegetable garden. The ground here is much softer than Arizona ground, as it is soft packed sand mostly. Immediately, on the first dig into the ground to break up the soil and remove the weeds, I noticed the handle twist from the blade. It stayed together, but it was very obvious it would require very gentle care to keep from breaking the handle at the point which it makes contact with the metal. Almost every time I dug after that, even trying to be gentle, the handle would twist again. The blade itself seems to be fine, but the wooden handle is not what I would expect in any wooden handled shovel. This handle will definitely break soon.
So this isnt a $94 shovel. Hence the reason on the first outing it ssssnapped. Didnt even get thru digging holes for veggies before it kerSnapped right at handle and shovel. So now what? UnImpressed. Shovel did okay, handle just not up to the challenge. Didnt even get a chance to remove the plastic from shipping...
the handle did have a few splinters in it, but after a little sanding, it was ok
Great for what I needed. Good product, good price.
Order the Jackson Eagle Long-Handle Round Point Shovel, #2 Blade, 46" Handle, Steel/Ash
Order June 10, 2013 .. Received June 11, 2013. I had no idea what a #2 Blade was vs a 14 or 16 gauge steel blade. I was replacing a Round Pointed Shovel I bought from Walmart's about 3-years ago, paid under $5. This one was $10.50 + $0.84 tax = $11.34, thus, if I can get 4-years of uses out of it I will be happy. By the way, it cost me about $7 for gas to and from the local Walmart's, thus this Shove was a good deal.
Did not arrive on time-needed by a certain date.
Had to go to Home Depot prepared to pay more, found them
1/2 the price, in stock
This was a perfect purchase for my needs and arrived swiftly. Thanks!
. The first time I used it to dig a trench it broke in about fifteen minutes where the handle meets the head.
strong and sturdy!
Does the job, not sure how long it will last though.
Great shovel for the price, works like the famous gold bald eagle strong,great quality construction;why pay more for a shovel when you don't have to!
I live on a fixed income so, when I needed a shovel for yard work, I checked the usual box stores and was surprised at how much one can cost. When I saw this one on Walmart's site, I figured it would be cheaply made but, when I received it I was wrong. It is a pretty decent shovel and I was glad I saved some money too.
You can purchase a more expensive shovel with a fiberglass handle, cushioned, etc..but for the cost, this was an exceptional deal.
Been using this to dig up yucca plants- so far ,so good.
It works very well for my use. Wish someone could of told me they were a reasonable price and in stock, I plan to shop for more Items in the future.
I was trying to dig a hole to plant a small tree. The wood used for the handle is soft and began to flex. I feared it might snap so I used it very lightly to dig the hole. My past shovels had much harder wood for the handle. This is a good price for a light duty shovel, better than you will find at competitors. I would recommend it for spreading gardening soils, mulch, etc. but not for digging.
Not much to say other than the handle broke within two minutes of using it simply trying to did a hole. I stood there shocked at how easily it broke. Junky or defective, take your pick.
My 14 yr old son was handed this shovel and instructed to dig up a plant in our front yard. Within 5 minutes he brought it back ... in two pieces. The wooden handle broke almost immediately. And to make matters worse, we bought this shovel on sale, on-line, and picked it up in store. As we were walking out we noticed that the same shovel was being offered for a cheaper price than we had paid. Frustrating!
WalMart needs to change their website so that you can see the actual cost of an item at both the online price and the in-store price.
