Recently moved to lovely home where the prior owner had way over-planted...shrubs growing into shrubs on a grand scale. I desperately needed to move some and totally remove others. This spade has made short work of this humongous task. Though I am not yet finished, I am miles ahead of where I would have been with a conventional spade. The sharp Vee edge slices through peripheral roots like the proverbial hot knife going through butter. I am able to develop a beautiful root-ball quickly. The heft of this spade is just right, not too heavy. Balance is superb. This tool was worth every penny spent

This has to be one of the best garden tools I have ever purchased.
It made transplanting all sizes of perennials a snap. It easily gets around and under the plant providing a nice rootball for transfer and transplant.
I managed to move a small shrub with no issues, and it was absolutely essential in opening up a new perennial bed in a pretty well rooted area. It cut through roots with ease, making what a feared would be a tough task a snap.

I can't say enough about the Sneeboer tools--true pieces of art that you can enjoy using in the garden. This tool probably impressed me the most because of its solid hefty sharp head. The head is a unique shape and it is both "show" and "go"--it made quick work of the ornamental grass I divided with it. I could see this tool assisting with digging holes that have roots and of course for transplanting trees and shrubs. A+ tool that is a must have for the serious gardener!
