This is the new Lil’ Digger and not something you can make in the garage! With all the design improvements you wanted!!!
20% Thicker blade than the original.
Full length ridge to add rigidity only found in a Lil Digger.
Heavy duty steel boss to re-inforce the neck joint.
Oversized heavy duty handle!
This is a patented blade design and cannot be purchased from any other manufacturer or seller! Beware of copies. It’s just not economical for me to pursue everyone of them so please beware. Our shovel is made overseas to our specifications and from our molds. We could not have it made in the US and be able to sell it for this price with the shipping included (I tried). Sad but unfortunately true and I wanted to keep the cost reasonable.
Please take time to look at the dimensions! This is a 29 inch shovel that is 8 inches wide at the steps. It’s designed to be easily carried or packed.
