Rated 2 out of 5 by from I've replaced my shovel once and need to do it again I have 50482 170FG , which is the round point fiberglass handle shovel. I purchased it from Home Depot between 2005 and 2008. It's my favorite shovel and the heaviest duty one I have ever had. However, cheap disposable shovels are outlasting it. I'm just a home owner, and I don't use the shovel for a living. I just have a lot of roots and black shale in my yard. The first time I had to replace the shovel, my neighbor and I were replacing our adjoining fence and the shovel bent at the shank right below the end of the handle. Home Depot told me to call rigid for a replacement and rigid sent me back to home depot to do an exchange. That was a little annoying then, and I don't want to go through that again. However, Home Depot doesn't carry the shovel anymore. Fast forward to 2018 and my wife or son used the shovel in the back yard and now the blade is splitting in two places and it has folded upwards to a right angle. I really don't want to cut the bad area out and drill holes at the cracks to relieve the metal stress. Fortunately Rigid has always stood by their products and my dad and I have always liked them, but I'm not really happy with this shovel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely worth the money! We have worked with so many shovels that after a few uses at a hard job they just break and then we are left with no shovel. This shovel is very durable and has not broke yet in the 6 months that I have owned it. Living in the Midwest we need something that can still get its job done in the winter months and this shovel does its job!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable Shovel This is one of the most durable shovels on the market. I have used plenty in the past with them breaking quite frequently. Very impressed with the durability with tough jobs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable & easy to use I am pleased with the quality & strength of this shovel. I have had others that sounded like they were cracking as I was using them & then they eventually break. This shovel is the best I have used so far. It is very durable, strong, easy to use and will last a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable Tool for Gardening! I am a long time gardener. I do a lot of digging. When I choose a hand tool like this spade, it must be strong enough to dig into the hardest clay, durable enough to withstand years of digging without rusting, and ergonomically well made, so that I don't need to struggle because it is too large or too heavy. This tool fits all of those criteria and is well-worth considering as a tool that you will have for years and years of reliable use!
