- Both shovels and spades spot on for loosening soil. But shovels are better at moving soil from one place to another, because their scoop is deeper than that of a spade as shown above.
- They can both have a "D" shaped handle or just a straight handle or a "T" handle.
So I affectionately call the tool we received from Corona my Shovelly Spade because even though it has the distinct "spade" shape, it does have a super long handle and yes, even the pointed tip.
Corona Tools most graciously allowed us to pick any shovel/spade we liked and Tom went with the steel spade, 15" diamond blade, 54" steel handle. It was his turn to choose as most of the tools we already own are too short for him!
This spade is made up of aerospace steel for durability. Amazing. From top to bottom, this is the best spade you'll ever own. The handle is too tall for me, but it's spot on for him. These two were made for each other.
Don't worry, you can get Tom's shovel or spade with a shorter handle as Corona Tools will allow you to pick the tool that suits you best. (I told you how nice they are, didn't I...and how pleasant they were to work with....right...Chris was wonderful!) You will enjoy making a purchase from them.
They make over 400 hand tools, so the selection is incredible. This is where you'll want to buy your hand pruners, snips & shears, loppers, saws, wheelbarrow, spades and shovels.
In fact, I've got this feeling that my great great grandchildren will be using Tom's spade one day. It's that high-end!
And I highly doubt you'll reach for any other tool when you head to the garage, potting shed or barn for your tools.
And I love the red handle We both find this feature useful when we misplace our spade.
And obviously, you use the tool that works best for you in the job you are trying to get done.
One last thing......Their website is incredibly user-friendly. It's easy to find just the tool you are looking for with clear pictures and detailed product descriptions making navigation a breeze. And no, this is definitely not always the case! How many "bad" websites are out there. A ton!
Corona has a few more tools up their sleeve in the coming weeks ~ stayed tuned for those awesome giveaways! Many thanks to them. I loved reviewing their products!!
