    Re: Digging tool

    I use the Planter Buddy from Lowes ($13), but I'm easy on my equipment.

    Maybe the Lesche digger would be better for you. I heard it's nearly impossible to break, though quite pricey ($46).

    Re: Digging tool

    I use the Vigoro Ergo Transplanter, but I had to modify it. The top portion of the spade would catch my headphone cable, so I cut it down and rounded the edges. Also, none of those garden spades are really made for going through thick grass or small roots, so I sharpen the edges on a grinder. Works nice. 25 year warranty (oh sure!).

    Actually, mine is! It's serrated from top to bottom on one side, and then sharpened like a knife edge on the other side. It also has two prongs on the tip that work well for getting into it. Oh yeah, it has a "lifetime warranty" too. The only downside, the blade isn't full tang... so people who are hard on their tools might possibly break it. I finally saw one broken on here not that long ago.

    Leshce digging tools are very rugged. I use the knife type and a long relic digger. They are well worth the money.

    Re: Digging tool

    My Lesche digging tool and relic shovel and Trans-Mississippi Electronics push digger (my favorite for parks). All rugged to the extreme and show no signs of failure yet.

    An investment in a good tool is usually well worth it.

    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    Re: Digging tool

    For years I did with "gardening" diggers. Some were decent, some weren't worth the time it took to make them. Finally I broke down and finally bought a Lesche...End of the searching period. Worth every penny.

    Re: Digging tool

    Save the pain and you'll gain with the Lesche hand digger. I tried all kinds and broke them all, never had a problem with the Lesche. In fact I lost mine once and bought 2 , one for backup in case I lose another. Just about stood on this digger in semi-frozen ground, hard clay and prying roots. One tough son of a gun this digger. IMO!!
