True Temper Tools are Built to Last Whether you're planting trees, clearing away snow or breaking ground for a new house, you can count on True Temper tools to get it all done. Every tool is manufactured with durable materials such as aluminum, tempered steel, fiberglass and hardwood to provide years of sturdy and reliable use. Many feature cushioned grips and D-grip handles that offer better control, comfort and stability, no matter how tough the job may be.
Choose the Right Shovel, Spade or Scoop for the Job When shopping for digging tools and scrapers, there are many styles available for your consideration. In terms of handle length, short-handled models are a good option for working in smaller spaces and offer more precise handling. Long-handled shovels provide extra leverage for heavy-duty purposes. Both wood and fiberglass handles are able to withstand extensive use. Wood handles are more common and are inexpensive. Fiberglass handles are lightweight and resilient.
A round point digging shovel is an excellent choice for basic gardening tasks. Their pointed tips work well for digging deep into rocky and hard soil, working in raised flower beds and for cutting sod. Excavator models feature a more angular point that aggressively breaks up the most stubborn soil pockets with minimal effort.
Drain spades are made with long and narrow blades for digging trenches, clearing out ditches and working in tight spaces. Border and garden spades are slightly wider and work well for defining landscape borders, digging and transplanting small trees and shrubbery.
Transfer shovels feature a square edge that can be used for many purposes, such as spreading and transferring sand, top soil, gravel, bark and other loose materials. They are also effective for leveling off surfaces, mixing concrete and removing yard debris. Many have a reinforced forged steel design that easily tackles labor-intensive landscaping projects.
Lightweight scoops offer easier handling that's ideal for moving mulch, shoveling away snow and shifting loose or bulky materials. Farmers find them perfect for scooping up grain, feed, fertilizer and seed.
Scrapers are a Versatile Tool for Many Tasks As part of a full arsenal of landscaping tools, scrapers can work hand-in-hand with shovels, scoops and rakes. A scraper is much like a shovel or scoop, but with a flat-bladed surface that's suitable for a variety of tough tasks. These heavy-duty tools can scrape away layers of ice, clear away snow from sidewalks, chip off chunks of concrete and remove roofing, flooring and siding materials. Many gardeners use scrapers to chop up weeds, edge lawns and clear out trenches, making them a valuable part of any home or office's grounds-keeping lineup.
