“The Easy Digging grub hoes and picks are the ace for cleaning my culverts and ditches. Here in West Virginia I hit shale a few inches down. My method is the following. I use the 4 inch or 6 inch grub hoes for pulling out leaves and loam. The ditch might require deepening. If I hit hard shale, I will break it up with the spike end of the pick axe, then scoop it out with the grub hoes. If I hit soft shale or clay I break it with the pick mattock.
These tools are all I need to maintain my ditches. They are the most efficient returns on energy of any tool I've used. The stress on my back is minimal; the longer handles make a huge difference. Roughly these Easy Digging tools are 4x more efficient than the junk offered by the hardware stores.
These tools are very well built and take a beating. No need to worry about bending or breaking them.”

“I bought a 6 inch grub hoe to be used to maintain our existing garden and to expand our garden by 5,000 square feet. It has taken the place of my garden spade forever. It is such a joy to use and it's so much better than a spade or shovel when digging or moving soil. My grub hoe has saved me so much time and work during this expansion project. It is one of my most valuable garden tools. I will be purchasing the 4 inch grub hoe to be used for some of the finer work in the garden. Thank you for providing such high quality and useful tools. I am sure this hoe will be by my side for decades.”
“If you are tired of the cheap short non functional hand tools found in box stores this is the place to buy real functional hand tools. I have bought 4 different tools here the are like stepping back in time. My only reccomendation would be to leave tge varnish off the handles either send them unfinished or with linseed oil on them.”
“I am in 60 years old and I always hated short handle snow shovels, picks etc. I am presently digging a trench for drainage piping, and when I am standing on the top of the ground and digging into the trench, it's a long reach down. My older "normal length" pick is too short. I feel it in my lower back. Now when I am digging in the dirt, or my crab grass patched yard, this tool works GREAT, I love it. I always loved digging in the dirt, and now I love it even more now. Hard packed dirt, rocks etc. are no problem for me. I love my new long handle pick:) I'm glad I bought it, every time I put it in my hands!”
