Root Slayer XL
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.
