Spear & Jackson Newcastle All-Steel Drainer 16" is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong & Long Having used one of these shovels in the past I knew this was just the tool I needed to dig some post holes in stony ground. Tool feels very sturdy and made light work of digging some 24" deep holes. The all-steel construction means there are no concerns of over stressing a wooden shaft. I've found myself digging wider trenches with this too as it is just so solid. Whilst I've not had it long I'm sure this will go the distance and I don't envisage having to buy another.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what we needed After having a spade bend on us whilst digging the garden, we wanted something up to the job. This has proved just that so far - great stuff

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stronger than me! This "spit" is stronger than me! I've been using it to dig out deep rooted and established blackberry roots, shrub roots that have spread in all directions and all manner of other unwelcome roots of perennial weeds. I decided the only way was to dig them out of the clay soil one at a time which is hard work but I seem to have chosen the right tool for the job. This tool is very strong being solid steel and easy to use. The leverage you can apply is very high and enables the deep rooted roots to be "lifted" without too much effort. I had used a conventional spade which merely bent the spade. I'm pleased with the purchase. Biggest risk is to retain it in my tool collection!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from no surprises I wanted an incredibly sturdy post hole spade, capable of bashing through stout tree roots and small hardcore if necessary, and this delivers. I already possess a similar spade, which all my team argue over (!), so was hoping for the same. This spade is slightly lighter in weight, but feels like it will go the distance, and hasn't failed so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from handy trench 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 great value for the money the cheapest around
