    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 :angel: 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.

    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..
