Pivot Head Shovel Makes A Handy Post Hole Digger
The square-bladed shovel has a lever system that runs from the handle down to the blade. When the handle is pulled, it pivots the blade up 90? to lift dirt out of the hole. It eliminates the need to tip the shovel back to lift out dirt, meaning less dirt has to be removed and greatly reducing the effort required to dig a hole.
Cameron notes that when the blade is folded up, the shovel can also be used as a packer for tamping dirt back into holes.
Cameron is talking to several manufacturers about putting the new-style shovel on the market.
