HERS™ Shovels are ergonomically designed to maximize women's strengths and minimize strain, based on research into how women use tools differently than men. The extra-deep step has a non-slip tread to prevent slipping, letting you use your body weight and lower body strength to dig. The shaft and blade angle let you dig and carry soil efficiently. The large D-shaped handle lets you use multiple hand positions and grip the shovel easily with both hands.

My own excellent shovel
By Island Doc

Comments about : HERS� Shovel, Large:
I have a number of good-sized raised beds and found it difficult to ready them for planting with a regular-sized shovel; a trowel was not a good option. I am petite and kept hitting myself in the head with the long handles of our shovels, or running into them as I was mixing bed ingredients (soil+compost+coconut husk) in the wheelbarrow and then transporting it to the beds. Also, trying to ready the raised beds for planting with a regular shovel was trying. I took a chance on the HERS shovel as previous small "kids shovels" just didn't stand up to heavy use. The HERS shovel truly is tailored for no-kidding use by people of my height and gardening activity. It is easier on my back and arms since its dimensions match mine, and reduces my chance of accidental injury from a long-handled shovel (believe me: it happened!). My foot stays on the shovel while digging due to its excellent design. I like that it cleans up well, and I can easily hang it up by its lovely handle in my garden shed.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
