Digging up stubborn roots is no easy task, often requiring the use of hatchets, pry bars, and saws on top of the good old gardening shovel. At least, it used to. That’s before the arrival of the Radius Garden Root Slayer Shovel.
A more versatile garden shovel, the tool won’t just let you dig through dirt, sand, and gravel, as you can use it to slice through sod and roots, too. And, no, you won’t have to do anything special or laborious to get the job done, as it’s designed to slice through thick roots as if it were nothing but a pile of soil.
The Radius Garden Root Slayer Shovel performs its unique function courtesy of a unique V-shaped cutting-blade tip that uses rip saw teeth to slice through thick roots on the ground, turning an erstwhile difficult chore into a much more accessible task. Simply put, it bundles the functions of a shovel, a root hatchet, and a root saw into a single gardening tool. It uses a heavy-duty blade that’s certified by Intertek to be 150 percent stronger than comparable tools, so it should hold up to those times you end up striking large rocks, along with a circular handle that enables multiple gripping points for better leverage.
Features include a coarse-toothed saw (so it won’t get clogged up by dirt), a longer-than-usual ferrule (for better durability), and a blade that measures 2.5 mm thick. It measures 44.5 inches long overall, ensuring you can use it for heavy-duty gardening tasks.
Available now, the Radius Garden Root Slayer Shovel is priced at $49.99.
