I purchased this shovel to use in my yard to help replace the dirt my dog was digging holes out of. It was easy to use and the grip on the handle was a plus. It's light enough for a longer chore.

I used this shovel to dig up the dead grass in my yard, it worked well. Then I used it to dig out some shrubs and roots, it worked well again. I put it to the stress and bend test to lift out a small shrub stump and that may have been a little too much as I could hear the handle start to crack a little. I'm still using it till it breaks, then I'll ask for a new one under warranty, overall it's a good shovel.
this one actually works the way a shovel should. Having puchased 3 shovels in the last 6 months, was finally glad to find one with some heft to it. And the lifetime guarantee doesn't hurt either.

I have never used a better shovel. I broke the handle but it wasn't easy and it was definitely abuse. I used it to dig fence posts and remove stumps from rocky soil. The best shovel I've used till this one was a caterpillar brand with a nupla handle and my craftsman far exceeded th caterpillar shovel. I would definatly purchase another.

If you're doing a serious all day shoveling job (like nobody does anymore), well, the fiberglass handle just does not compare to a full diameter hardwood handle. The diameter of the handle down where you grab with your left hand (if you're right handed) is sized too small to twist the shovel like you often do when you're throwing dirt. Also, prying a little (only as would normally be done) doesn't give one a feeling of confidence. It feels like it's going to snap. Last, the rubber grip works loose. It's not a gross failure as if it slid off or something, but it creeps enough to be annoying. Also, on that grip, you can feel the square end of the fiberglass tube underneath, even through gloves. Give me a nicely rounded hardwood handle any day As for the spade part, no complaints yet. Looks nice where you'd jump on it to break sod deep, like when spading a new garden. I don;t know if those scallops at the point are helping or if they just make you feel good.

I love this shovel. It has the large areas for your foot when digging, that makes it an easy tool to use. I have even loaned it to my neighbor who loved it and wants to buy one. If only all Craftsman tools were still built this good.
