Ask a question about this product

Shovels are hand tools consisting of a broad blade with edges or sides that is fixed to a medium-length handle. Shovel blades are made of sheet steel and are very strong. Shovel handles are usually made of wood or glass-reinforced plastic (fibreglass).

Hand shovel blades made of sheet steel usually have a folded seam or hem at the back to make a socket for the handle. This fold also commonly provides extra rigidity to the blade. The handles are usually riveted in place. A T-piece is commonly fitted to the end of the handle to aid grip and control where the shovel is designed for moving soil and heavy materials. These designs can all be easily mass-produced.

The Shovel comes in various shapes as per the use and may be termed as Snow Shovel (square Shovel) , Grain Shovel, Spade (triangular shovel for piercing purpose).
