The GARDENA Terraline™ Spade is the spade that guarantees comfortable and safe work while digging, removing, loosening and transplanting soil. The extra-wide and ergonomically shaped D handle with soft plastic components is particularly comfortable for holding with both hands. Digging is rendered 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™ Spade 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 optimal angle of handle to blade also guarantees ergonomic work. The spade blade is made of robust, hardened quality steel with high-grade coating. The total length of the spade is 117 cm. High quality means a long life. That's why GARDENA offers a 10-year warranty!
