Rated 5 out of 5 by linkhigh Does everything it claims to do!
This is currently my favorite QVC purchase of all time, and I am not exaggerating! Over this last summer we planted several hundred groundcover plants on a hill at the back edge of our property. This was the only shovel we owned that would make a dent in the heavy clay soil. It's so much better than an ordinary shovel that they shouldn't even share the same name! Our project would have taken at least four times longer without it. I bought this one (with the longer handle) because my husband is tall. He loves it as much as I do. So much so, that we kept stealing the shovel from each other and wishing we had two.
For digging, there is absolutely nothing better. Just one word of caution: you'll want to keep your old shovel around if you need to move loose dirt from one location to another. For example, adding sand to a cement mixer. This shovel doesn't have enough surface area to hold that kind of volume.
But for digging? You could tunnel to China with this thing! I just can't say enough good things about it! No gardener or landscaper should be without one. Or two. And don't ask to borrow mine.... I know I would never get it back!

Who knew a shovel would make my husband and sons act like kids with a new toy? I've had this item for about a month and haven't used it once - the guys have done all the digging. They seem surprised it works so well and is so sturdy. And our heavy, rocky Maine soil has put it to the test!
Rated 4 out of 5 by MJL SECOND PURCHASE.
WE ALREADY HAVE THE SHORTER SHOVEL. MY HUSBAND STATED IT WORKS GREAT BUT HIS BACK AND LEGS ACHED FROM PENDING OVER TO GET THE JOB DONE. HIS OPINION IS FOR SHORT QUICK JOBS THE SHORTER SHOVEL IS FINE. BUT TO DIG A COUPLE HOLES. HE WENT BACK TO USING A REGULAR SHOVEL.WHEN I SAW THE LONG HANDLE VERSION. I JUMPED ON IT. I THINK THIS WILL REALLY HELP HIM OUT. TIME WILL TELL.

I'm 67 & within 2 days I moved about 8 sq. yards of sod. Then I dug up nine 3-5 foot dragon lady holly's & planted them where the sod use to be. All the trees & sod are doing well, after

I already had the shorter version of this shovel and had to get the longer one too. I love them. There isn't any hand tool that cuts into Florida's floratam grass (which is like iron), but this does. I'm a young 70 year old women who does our landscaping and these shovels are the best. If they hadn't come out with the new longer handled version, I was going to purchase another short handled one just in case anything happened to the first one. Can't landscape without it. Many, many Thanks to the invertor!

This is going to be a great shovel for me since I have a very rocky yard. I have already used it and it was wonderful to be able to get the rocks out of the ground so easily.

I purchased this shovel to add to our "tool supply" as we are just in the process of moving into our first home. On its first use, my husband was amazed at how easily the shovel went through the dense ground and the wood chips that were obviously a bit older in the flower beds. Turning the ground over in order to plant the flowers was much easier with this shovel because of the spade aspect. Though my husband was skeptical at first because it didn't "look impressive," he quickly suggested that we get another or perhaps the other size. A must for everyone's tool supply in their garage!

These are the best shovels we have ever had. Last year, I purchased the shorter one. My husband really liked it, but wished the handle was longer. When I saw this, I knew we had to have it! Great product, it is so much easier to dig holes!
