Spear and Jackson Trad Childrens Digging Spade

Post by Withano » Wed Oct 30, 2019 4:24 pm

Being a short person (5'6") I bought this to take out with my new gear and I couldn't be happier!

Having seen what Ruffers22 has done to his, I am very tempted to get the grinder out and improve it slightly. ::g

To be honest, I was on a budget and nipped into my local garden center as I was keen to get out onto my first permission with my shiny new 400i :D

I've had the bigger version of this spade at home for a number of years and it's still going strong so I have faith in the brand. That said, if it does break, I'll let you know! ::g
