DeWit mini shovel ash drop grip handle

  • Light and manoeuvrable
  • Comfortable two-handed use
  • Lifetime guarantee

This little shovel might be compact and lightweight, but it’s incredibly strong for its size. Forged by hand from tough boron steel, it includes an extended ash handle so you can use it two-handed - great for spreading the weight of the load or striking nice and firmly into soil.

We find it a really handy alternative to a heavy full-size shovel for stirring up the compost heap, mixing in fertilisers and moving soil, stones, sand, etc at a more leisurely pace.

It’s perfect for working in smaller spaces and a great choice for gardeners with back problems or anyone who prefers working with light, easy to handle tools.

Please note: take care not to place excessive strain on wooden handles when levering out roots or rocks in very firm soil. To help, water the area well to soften ground first. A crowbar may be more suitable for very heavy or stubborn obstacles.
