But back-breaking to use!

Many years ago there was a 'Which' test of what spades were least effort to use. The easiest was the Wolf Autofork with the spade attachment. Second was the heart shaped spade with a long straight handle (the sort that you see in Westerns, where they're burying someone on 'Boot Hill'!) The worst was the straight spade as shown.

I use the heart shaped spade. I'm 6'4" so the long handle means I don't need to bend much. You can shovel with it and also use the tip as a hoe. It's a great all-round gardening tool!

You can do it, you just need to dig deep.

I thought they were for leaning on whilst you drank your tea... at least that is how I see them being used most often around here
