The standard square point shovel is a great tool for moving loose material such as dirt, sand, and gravel. This straight shovel head can be used to form and level off beds and mix concrete. The strong straight blade is great for scraping materials off flat surfaces or use as a dust pan during industrial clean-up. The square point shovel is made of 14 gauge tempered steel blade for strength. The shovel has a forward turn step to create a firmer, more comfortable step for leverage when breaking through ground and other hard material. The head is shaped to create a fulcrum at the top of the head for greater leverage when picking up material. The head is double riveted to a smooth lacquered hardwood handle. The 48″ hardwood handle provides extended reach of tool.
