This is a compact version of the best-selling Root Slayer® Shovel — the head is about 30% smaller — which makes it lighter weight and ideal for small spaces, raised beds, and borders. With all the sharpness and strength of the original, it's also a stellar weeder: try it on stubborn plants like knapweed, sprouted tree seedlings, dandelions, curly dock, thistles, and more!
This shovel is ready to handle your toughest tasks with less effort from you. The heavy-duty, high-carbon manganese steel blade is tapered to cut through the most challenging soil, sod and roots, and the durable fiberglass handle has a comfortable grip. Narrow, pointed head lets you dig in beds without disturbing nearby plants, and a durable epoxy coating minimizes friction and corrosion and helps prevent soil from sticking to blade.
This is a shovel well-suited for budding young gardeners, for working in raised beds, or for senior gardeners who struggle with heavier tools. The patented blade takes small bites of earth with minimal effort — even hard-packed soil!
