    Ground Shark "gripe"

    I just got this new ground shark, love the 36" because it helps me walking like a crutch or cane and helps me to get up. The main gripe that I have with it is the super small plug that it cuts. I like the width of my Sampson, it is just too short height wise. What I would really love would be the blade opened up or flatten some for a wider cut. I know that the blade is harden and any attempt to flatten it would most likely result in a cracked blade or worse. then I found that the rubber backed step on the back actually made the deeper digs harder as it acted as a stop on depth. guess I should have just had someone to add another 6 or 7" to my Sampson to make it taller. As I get older, I find myself more and more wanting things to fit me better or to work better for my uses.

    I had the same shovel as you. They’re not good for cutting plugs in this crappy Arkansas soil. I got rid of it rather quickly. I need a Sampson. Thats the one I’ve wanted for a while
