Burgon & Ball Large Stainless Groundbreaker Spades
The real joy of this super-tough garden spade is its pointed, sharpened head, which slices easily through the most challenging ground. If it meets a stone or root as it cuts down through the soil, it simply passes the obstruction to the side, taking the hard work out of digging in hard or stony soils.
The mirror-polished stainless steel head gives rust resistance and clean movement through the soil. Wide comfort treads at the top of the blade prevent any discomfort for feet, allowing you to really dig deep.
This distinctive spade has been tested to a breaking strain of 100kg – that’s 82% stronger than the British standard. To save your back, it has a longer handle than most spades, crafted in FSC certified hardwood. The handle is topped with a comfortable 'Y' grip, double riveted at the base for strength. An extra-long, double-riveted strapped socket introduces strength and an element of flex at this key joint.
