Very well explained. Thanks for that!
Which is correct?
Oh too easy'
It's as per the diagramm .
Shovels are for transferring quantities of material.
Spades are for digging.
If i was a proper tool nerd i'd post a line up of my assorted spades and shovels for all functions.
Including the native 'Devon' Shovel...
I know - thrills !!!
But you'll be pleased to hear that there is still some actual werk to do here -
of a Friday afternoon nature.
@mudsticks, Trenching shovel is for digging.
Which diagram, neither are the same.
Question from a wife (not mine of course) ....
and when did WE last have sex ?
The one at the top with the arrers.
Yes trenching shovel is indeed for digging trenches, but trenching does also require shifting of said material out of the trench - otherwise there isn't really a trench..
So we could argue, with some validity that, the trenching shovel is in fact a dual purpose tool..
Was that question directed at the whole forum??
Fairly sure i've never met your wife - but then memory is a fickle thing..
For the sake of clarity I have amended the OP.
My wife remembers the exact year
That she met @mudsticks ?
I deny everything...
Yet at the same time, am deeply flattered that she remembers
Wuz just passing,
Two examples of shovel..
Devon (left) and conventional with T handle..
This is my shovel/ This is my spade
This is for digging/ This is ... er... hey, look! Over there! That polar bear is attacking a penguin!
Do penguins live at the North Pole?
Keep up @Edwardoka there is no spade in this photo.
Maybe spades tomorrow..
But just for now a hoe..
And put that Polar bear down please.. You don't know where its been...
Take your pick
