HERShovel(tm) Shovel-spade hybrid for women
HERShovel(tm) Shovel-spade hybrid for women

The HERShovel(tm) Shovel-spade hybrid for women was scientifically designed to be ergonomic for women, taking into account such factors as a female's body type, strengths, digging/shoveling style, etc. The patented D-grip handle is large (for multiple hand-placement options and two-handed digging), textured (for optimum grip), and forward tilting (for added leverage). The ash shaft is designed to optimize the strength-to-weight ratio and is shock resistant. The steel blade flexes (to prevent breakage) and includes an enlarged step at the top (to capitalize on a woman's lower body strength and provide enhanced comfort and stability), and is angled (to best complement her digging style). The HERShovelâ„¢ weighs less than 4 1/2 pounds and available in three lengths to match the user's height.
