Easy shovel / Life Tools

Easy shovel
Easy shovel

Easy Shovel has been designed for more effective digging. A central foothold space allows the user to press down firmly on a flat surface in alignment with the shovel’s centre of gravity. This allows for a better implementation of force, and avoids the damaging of shoes. The foothold also allows the shovel to function as a lever, which will assist with the loosening of hard soil or the movement of stones.
