This is the smaller of the two spades we are stocking from Sneeboer.
Don't think its use is restricted to smaller work in borders, as its equally at home working in a veg patch or allotment. It's also great for those wanting a lighter weight tool, perhaps because they are being used all day.
It has a total length of 110cm and the handle is Ash.
The head is 23cm long and 15cm wide.
The addition of the side steps on the head mean that you can get more leverage with a boot whilst digging. It's massively more secure and also less likely to damage the sole of your boots.
