The worlds largest spade

Did you know how big the worlds largest spade is?

Turns out that it is 12 foot 9 inches tall and 2 feet 1 inches wide!!

See...


Not something that you see every day is it!


I think that if I owned this spade I would leave the wielding of it to someone else as I would make a right mess digging a hole with it.  I wonder how much it weighs!

If you are out digging in the garden this weekend, I hope that you have fun and more normal size spade!

  1. I can't even manage a regular sized one with my back problems. If there is no one about to help me I have to sit there with a trowel!

  2. It would make short work of digging over the allotment.

  3. Oh coffee break already. I think this is an eye catcher but not a useful tool, lol. I hope I get out in the garden this weekend, if it dries up I will

  9. My first thought when I saw it was it looked like it would be perfect for Hagrid from the Harry Potter books. :-)

  10. Blimey I wouldn't be able to lift it let alone wield it. :)

  11. I think the Jolly Green Giant might like to have that spade but I feel like he must have people to do the gardening for him, possibly by force. :)

  12. This is surely a spade for giants, I think I'll be happy sticking to my own 'old faithful' spade.

  13. Goodness. Now all I need is a giant sized man to do the digging with it.

  14. Sounds like one dig and you'd have the job done! Thanks, but no thanks! My curiosity is raised though, I think even on the front of one of those hugs trucks it would be way too big! Oh you do raise some interesting subjects Amy - I wonder how many questions are being asked on this one now! Lovely spade-free weekend to you m'dear!

  15. Amy,
    It must have been made for Giant gardeners. I don't think I could lift it. Lol.

  16. That is sure a huge spade, I would need a crane to lift my leg up to use it!! Has to be for the giants.

  17. Ha ha, that's a big spade! I am doing some digging today, but I'll be using my nice normal size spade! :)

  18. Oh my word, that's huge! Hoping to get some weeding done in the front garden today but will definitely be wielding a much smaller trowel :-)
    Happy Sunday,

    1. The weight wasn't given on the information, I bet that it is very heavy though! Not something you would want to drop on your foot that is for sure! xx

  23. I could do absolutely nothing with that spade except chop my toes off.....such a weakling! I was once in a garden centre wanting to buy a spade and fork and a man said to me in his best Yorkshire accent..."is that for you love....better pick the smallest one you can find and nice a light mind"
