Review by Ed from North Georgia on August 20, 2019Pros: Made of solid steel that should last a lifetime. I can't imagine it ever failing even if you ran over it with your car. Small size makes it less conspicuous compared to other shovels, which is largely the reason I selected it. The shorter shaft makes it easier to carry than something longer as it's less likely to get in the way of other equipment. The cutting blade is long, so you can get to deep targets much easier than with say a hand held digging tool. It's sharp. Be careful!
Cons: Only one for me. The foot pedal you step on is small, and it's located behind the shaft. I'm a large guy with a big foot. This design makes it somewhat difficult for me to get my weight over the blade to maximize leverage when I'm trying to dig in hard ground. To compensate, I have to turn my foot sideways which is a little different and awkward. With a traditional shovel you step on the side and can really get your weight behind it and stand over the blade. Of course, to have the compact design, there probably isn't any other option... but for me that's just a little bit of a negative. That's the only reason I'm giving it 4 stars instead of 5.
Note: The curvature of the blade is really well rounded. When you dig, if you follow the curve of the blade exactly, it makes a whole about the size you'd find on a golf course putting green... I haven't found that to be a problem, but I mention it because In most of the videos I see people cut larger plugs than that. No big deal to me and worth it for the compact design, however some people might prefer a wider blade with less of a curve. I don't see this as a positive or negative... Just something to be aware of.
Review by Edward on February 24, 2017Very well made and does the job better than any other I have ever used.
Review by John on June 1, 2016I have been working with professional tools all my life. I ordered the Lesche Ground Shark Shovel. This shovel will last for many many years. It is very well made of the finest materials. I was impressed to say the least. Stevie Ray (my salesman) was very helpful not only with this but with all the products I purchased from Kellyco. He really knows all the products they carry there. Just a great all around experience. Thank you Kellyco and Stevie Ray. - John
