Hand Digger

Post by Az89 » Mon Sep 16, 2019 8:38 pm

Is there a place I can go in store and buy I decent hand digger? Thought b&q would be the place to go but it’s definitely not. Any recommendations would be appreciated

You could try a garden centre if you haven't got a MD shop near you.

I think he's asking for a physical bricks and mortar store.

The better garden centres will sell great trowels and spades but be prepared to pay through the nose.

I tried all sorts of gardening trowels, none of which really suited the purpose. Eventually I coughed up and bought the Evolution trowel via MDF Shop. An excellent piece of kit, which unless I loose it, shall never have to buy another hand digger.

Whatever their reason may be, not everyone wants to buy stuff on-line.

How about one of these. This one’s on offer! Post £4.99. I’ve heard good things about these trowel/knives for detecting. Also bought off this company before (not the attached) no problems.
They do a range of this make, normally very expensive (my opinion).
