White's Ground Hawg Shovel
For Hardcore Hunters Who Need a Hefty Shovel, We've Developed the Ground Hawg. Includes a Blade Sheath.
This heavy duty digger does double time on roots, clay, rocks, and other challenging conditions. Twin serrated edges tear through the toughest earth, and the wide blade makes digging larger plugs easy without damaging your target. The extended length also means you don’t need to stoop to dig.
The blade on the GROUND HAWG is specifically designed for the perfect plug – with 3 cuts you have a 6" wide and 7" deep cube. Shallow targets (under 7") show up in the plug, while deeper targets (over 7") will still be in the hole… but should be within reach of your TRX Pinpointer or trusty DigMaster Digger if further excavation is required.
**CAUTION: This shovel is sharp, and can inflict serious bodily harm if misused. Please check local ordinances to see if you need a permit for such a destructive implement.

Review by Moe on July 4, 2021I researched shovels for detecting, can you believe that LOL. Anyway I've used it for digs and recently I used it while building a wood ramp for my shed, and I had to find something to push and pry boards so they would be even. I'm a big guy and had to push hard on the shovel when screwing boards in. It's one tough shovel. No way it's going to break or bend. I just proved it. If I lost it, I'd be on the hunt for a new one.
Review by Kdelbox on February 6, 2021This shovel is a beast. I’m not sure you could break it if you tried. Great for tree roots and rocky ground as well. I don’t think I could have found a better shovel regardless of price. I was impressed with the speed of shipping as well.
Review by Bob B on November 23, 2020I wanted a shovel to dig plugs for my targets without always having to bend over. This shovel is the ticket! Not so big that it's hard to carry, and tall enough to keep me from having to bend over on all my digs. Love it! Great price and fast shipping. Oh, and it works well in the flower beds, too.
Review by Jerry on November 4, 2020Nice shovel but I hope people don't use these in areas like parks and well manicured lawns. Don't be lazy you can go down on one knee and dig with a handheld tool so you don't look like you're digging a big hole I understand that you can put the plug and the dirt back after digging with a shovel but it's the Optics that create the problem. That's one of the main reasons why people are kicked out of areas that yield good finds.
Review by Recovery Chad on April 23, 2020The Ground Hawg is a well built shovel and the perfect size to carry around all day with your detector. The picture as compared to real life makes it look bigger than what it is. Its very sharp cuts through roots like they are not there. I dig a lot of horse pastures that are well compacted. Handles that like a Stallion as well. Very impressed with the construction of this shovel. Easy 5 Stars ***** I wouldn't hesitate to buy this again. I bought with the shovel holster I fashion that to my backpack or on my belt it comes in very handy when you have a long walk to a dig site. You will be able to view it soon on You Tube search RecoveryChad I'll make some vids with it in action!
Review by Bob Lee on March 24, 2020I purchased this shovel along with a Minelab 800 during an in-house visit to Kellyco in Casselberry. Katie, the sales rep, was exceptionally helpful. I'm not sure you could break this shovel if you tried. I've dug hundreds, and hundreds of holes with it, chopped roots and it looks about like it did when I first saw it on the showroom floor. My only wish is that the handle was forty inches long rather than 36". Not sure why these types of shovels are not made a few inches longer. I think it would make a world of difference in ease of digging and dragging the shovel behind when actively walking and swinging. From my research there is not a quality metal detecting shovel on the market longer than 36." DO NOT BUY A SHOVEL SHORTER THAN 36".
Review by Bcass2 on January 27, 2020White's Groung Hawg shovel is made very well. Very strong and great service from Kellyco.
Review by Bcass2 on January 23, 2020I received my Ground Hawg Shovel today and was very surprised at the heavy duty quality. I also appreciate how fast I received it from KELLYCO; within 3 days. I am an old customer of KELLYCO and always will be one.They are helpful, honest
and have great prices. Thank you KELLYCO!
Review by Penny on November 29, 2019It's all you need! Sharp , small but heavy duty!!
Review by Appalachian History Detectives on October 18, 2019I look forward to using this
Review by Frank215 on August 30, 2019A very tough shovel. Will go though anything the last shovel you will buy.
Review by Dan W. on August 23, 2019The blade is sharp as an ax, so you’ll appreciate the included sheath when carrying it inside your vehicle. It’s a little bigger than some treasure hunting shovels with a blade that’s 5 1/2” wide, but still cuts a nice 6” plug. Length over all is 36”. Well built and heavy duty, and the welds look solid.
Review by Rutnbuc on March 10, 2018My first thought was I must be crazy to pay 50.00 + bucks on a mere shovel. But let me tell ya, best damn shovel I ever used. At 6'2" and 296 lbs. I've busted many shovels in my life. Not this one. I've leaned so hard on this shovel, I thought it was gonna break or at least bend, but no to my surprise it will not bend under the hardest use. Perfect fit with the shovel holster sold here at Kellyco. And it makes recovery super fast. Most times I don't even have to kneel down. Just pop a fair size plug, check with detector to see if my target is in the hole or the plug, draw the pin pointer to find. Makes hard ground easy. Soft ground super easy. And roots of little concern. Robust 5 star MAN SHOVEL. And it looks cool to boot. Bad area, bad guys, hell of an improvised weapon. Serious tool, for serious people. Harden tempered steel, no aluminum, plastic, wood or fiberglass.

Q: Just curious if the Ground Hawg is still being made or if the Covid Pandemic has made availability an issue. I cannot seem to find them ANYWHEREA:
With White's closing, the shovels are currently out of production. I am not sure when more inventory will be available. We have plenty of other options for shovels if you are interested in a different one!
