The GARDENA Terraline™ Spading Fork is a valuable helper for planting and root-sparing digging, removal and loosening of soil. The extra-wide and ergonomically shaped D handle with soft plastic components is particularly comfortable for holding with both hands. You can plant and dig much easier. An extra-large foot-rest protection with robust tread allows good force application and reduces the danger of injury through unintentional slipping. A further plus of Terraline™ Spading Fork is the Softec™ shock absorption which is extremely gentle on the joints and has been filed for patent. Kickback during digging is reduced, e.g. when a rock is hit or when cutting off thick roots. The handle shape is also ideal: the drop-shaped handle profile ensures that the handle lies well in the hand and prevents unintended distortion. The cold-insulating plastic sleeve on the handle allows pleasant, non-slip handling and is kind to the hands. The four sturdy spear-shaped prongs are made of hardened quality steel with high-grade coating. The total length of the Spading Fork is 117 cm. High quality means a long life. That's why GARDENA offers a 25-year warranty!
