Spear & Jackson All-Steel Cable Laying Shovel 4¾" is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good trenching shovel So far has been perfect for digging channel to take swa cable. Not so good for deeper channels. Great quality, slices through clay a treat. Imagine I'll have this one for a while!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cable laying shovel Excellent. Nice sturdy shovel. Used it for fencing posts. No worries about the shaft breaking. Like all Spear and Jackson products, I imagine having this a long time.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Mine broke Never bend? maybe not, mine broke. I think I should of spent more and bought a carbon steel one. Nice to use before it broke though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Handy additional spade Using this spade to dig trenches in narrow places and to remove clay in thick slices. It feels strong to use and does not give any signs of bending....it's from the "neverbend" range by Spear and Jackson although this is not obvious from the product write up. Sounds obvious, but because it's narrow, you don't have a very wide foot-hold, however this hasn't caused any issues.
