Roughneck Trenching Shovel 48" is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Narrow Trenching shovel Useful for narrow trenches. Shaft could be a little bit longer for the deepest of trenches . If you use it correctly shouldn’t bend, however I wouldn’t use it to pry/dig/scrape out the trench, better tools exist for that, and the Join at the head doesn’t look substantive enough for that. but it works like it was intended to- clearing out of the bottom of a trench: not problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool Made light work of digging a 10m long trench at 600mm deep for some cable in heavy clay.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Glad I bought it Really 4 1/2 stars, only loses the half as when trying the loosen clay at the bottom of the trench, the grip at the top of the handle twists. I fixed it with 6 self tappers (3 either side) now works a treat. Blade is strong and very hard wearing. Cracking tool that made life much easier, very glad I bought it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Roughneck 48” trenching shovel Decent length, and has a good rake. Haven’t used it yet, but it seems well made so I have no doubt it will do the job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool This trenching shovel was a great buy. I needed to cut a trench to lay kerb stones and this did a great job, including cutting through compacted stones which formed a drives surface.
