"Seymour Round-Point Shovel - Wood Handle, Model SV-LR90"
Low cost, high yield shovel is a must
Just as with the square/transfer shovel I bought from NT, I was concerned about the quality of a shovel that was priced so low. When using a spade, you want a shovel that digs deep and holds an edge and can flex a bit at the handle to get leverage without breaking. This keeps up with my high end fiberglass shovels at a way lower ticket price. Heavy gauge steel head has been a long tougher than I thought it would be. I've transplanted a dozen palm trees with this shovel and it's still as nice as the day I bought it.

This shovel is great and sometimes they sell it in stores as a 2 for 1 deal. That's when I scoop a bunch up.

I stuck it in the ground, twisted and pulled back out. A hole was there.

Not quite as pleased as the rest
I got one of these and the flat-head shovel on a 2/$10 deal last year. The flat-head has held up fine, but on its second use this shovel's handle split! I didn't thing that I was digging in an overly aggressive fashion, perhaps I just got a bum handle on mine. Replaced the shovel with a heavy-duty USA-made one with a fiberglass handle, had no further troubles.
It did at least feel comfortable to hold.

broke first day
I bogutht his shovel and couldnt believe the price. I needed to spend 8 more for free shipping so i chose this. The head was really small. and the handle broke on me the first day. Just ended up buying a new shovel because a new handle would cost only $2 bucks less.

light weight, but very strong! I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good value and a excellent shovel.

a great all purpose shovel!
We bought this shovel when our old one ended up with a broken handle and have been very pleased with it's versility and strength. It has been used for everything from mixing concrete to digging holes for trees and posts. I have been a great help in the garden this year as well. I would recommend it as a wonderful all purpose shovel.

Great shovel for the price very inexpensive. If taken care of is made to last a long time. Feels good in your hands, never have gotten a splinter. Great for around the home use.
