    Unique manual shovel/tiller - GIF

    I guess this is technically a manual hand tiller, and not a shovel? This would never work in Colorado; there's a very good reason why they're called the Rocky Mountains, and not the Easily-Shoveled Soft Dirt Mountains. Cool tool though, obviously homemade. Looks like it has some height adjustment, bicycle handlebars, well-placed spike on the bottom, plus three cutouts in the blade.

    I could make one of those out of the heaviest of steel and I'd either break a weld or more likely my shoulders in our heavy western Ohio clay!

    It would work just fine in my sandy loam but for now I think I'll pass. Although it would give a fellow a good workout.

    That is a brilliant idea. No bending or lifting like there is with a shovel. Clever man.
