Refurbished - New Garrett ACE 400 Metal Detectors with Waterproof search coil (full warranties included)
The Root Slayer Shovel XL is an extended length version of the Root Slayer providing extra leverage with a longer, conventionally shaped handle. It’s great for taller gardeners and great for people who prefer a long straight handle to our patented O-handle grip.

The Root Slayer can eliminate the need for other tools, such as hatchets, pry-bars, and saws, when simply digging around the home. If you’ve ever hit roots while trying to plant a perennial, or been stymied by roots when trying to dig up a shrub, or tried to divide hostas with a spade only to have them slide away from your shovel, you’ll know what we’re talking about. You can use the Root Slayer as your go-to shovel. You can also use it to replace your nursery spade. Think of it as a shovel, root hatchet, and root saw all in one tool. Non-latex grip on pultruded fiberglass shaft. Lifetime Guarantee.

I couldn't be more pleased with this shovel! It is lite strong sturdy and cuts roots with ease compared to a regular tip shovel. The shaft/handle will move and pry a generous amount or weight.
REVIEW OF ROOT SLAYER, XL
So happy to receive my Rootslayer XL! Although right away i realized the 5 lbs. that it weighs is a little too heavy for me to lift. I wish they would make one around 4 lbs.--not too heavy and not too light. i have the smaller version, nomad spade, about 3 lbs. Its my go to shovel. But. its just too light for me. I may not be using too much of the Root Slayer XL since its heavy. But i'm still happy i purchased it and will buy it all over again.
