Pros: MADE IN USA
Cons: NONE NOTED
Bully Tools, 100% AMERICAN MADE, Tulip Spade and Bulb Planter - 14 gauge steel curved hand spade and bulb planter - American Made, measuring a just under 16 nches in length features a 3.5 x 6 inch curved blade. T hand is 8 inches wide and overall handle length is 15.75 inches.
I like the 6 inch cambered head designed to provide more effective digging with less effort needed. Solid steel construction with cushy rubber grip, powder coating for rust resistance and manufacturer's guarantee have created a dandy tool for use in small areas including flower beds, digging amongst bulbs and perennials and the like.
I find this particular hand spade to be an excellent tool working in my lily plantings. The 6 inch blade, makes this spade the ideal length for setting bulbs. I find the overall length and T-style Handle are easy for me to use, easier than some now that the arthritis has progressed and grasp is lessened when holding conventional straight handle tools. The T handle provides the grip I need for more digging power without arm and back strain.
I do have conventional type bulb setting planters featuring long and short length and a round bulb creating a round hole. I cannot use those tools for general digging tasks. This particular powder coated steel bulb spade is handy in that I can form a round hole using the curved blade and can also use as a conventional spade for loosening soil around plantings.
Both type bulb tools have their own specialty to meet and I continue to use my original bulb planters for setting out or beginning new beds, I use my Bully tulip spade for setting out rows of new bulbs and for cultivating in and around clumps and long standing plantings.
I like using the best landscaping and gardening tools I can find for working in my garden and protecting our environment. I enjoy working in the gardening, I find it helps soothe the mind and ease the cares of the day, and an added plus I am weeding, protecting against soil erosion, cultivating, aerating, cultivating all without use of noisy motor driven things, all while using my own power.
When needed my tulip spade does an admirable job digging out clumps for transplant as well as cultivating to loosen soils or provide planting excavation. All in all Bully Tools, Tulip Spade and Bulb Planter
I always like powder coating when I can locate tools having the protective covering. Powder coating is an additive coating designed to protect against rust, corrosion and other damage, provide durability and lend to longevity of the tool. The covering goes on as a powder and after heat processing provides a heavy duty barrier glaze.
Best of all my Bully tools are Made right here in the USA.
