    What's the best T-shovel these day?

    I need a good jagged T-shovel to take the place of the one I killed today. Any opinions?

    I have the ball handle 37" Dixie, but otherwise what Dave-E said: Predator Tools/Lesche/Sampson shovels. I like the smaller head of the Dixie series for working around roots and taking smaller bites (less likely to damage the shovel or target when levering out).

    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.

    Have a look at gravediggertools. They are the last shovel you will ever need. Makes all others look like toys

    What's the best T-shovel these day?

    The Sampson 31" T handle is my favorite shovel. If you want something bigger Predator tools make larger ones. I have the Raven and one like the Piranha but find myself using the little 31" Sampson the most.

    I have a spear head shovel for open fields and I also ordered the Root Assassin, but I sent it back, it was too long and not sturdy enough for my liking.

    I have and use the Lesche 31' T handle Relic Hunter shovel. I love this shovel. Very sturdy and well made. If it can cut it's way through our concrete hard Georgia red clay, it will do the job. This is also a great little shovel to have around the house for smaller landscaping jobs such as planting shrubs, etc. Check em' out and see what you think. I have had mine now for about 6 years and wouldn't trade it for anything.

    I was going to shoot these down until I looked at their site. They are heat treated like the Sampson and Predator tools are. They should be decent shovels but I prefer a round handle to grab onto

    The GRAVE DIGGER shovels are the best i have used . I hunt woods and fields and cellar holes and these grave diggers are light and i do not think you could ever break one a very strong tool . And the extra process of POWDER COATING paint..put on them i really like..
