I bought a large size before realizing the small was available. I did use the large set and was immediately impressed. I have been using the type with the squeeze handle and claw, which is impossible to clean and doesn't pick up messy piles very well. The "dust pan" type with the metal "broom" gets 5 stars in my book! My sister will receive the large set I purchased as a gift. After it's been cleaned, of course!
So disappointed in the lack of quality, Such shoddy construction! Have barely used the 1st set, and today the spade fell off of its handle. The indent punches in the metal that are supposed to keep the shovel together are already failing. To get any use out of this, I'm going to have to drill holes, buy metal nuts/bolts, and make proper connections to hold the parts together! The handle looks like it's aluminum in the picture ---nope, painted wood, so when it cures & dries out, it falls off out of the metal connection.
I've had this set since April 2020 and it was great. Super flimsy but still did its job. Always stored it out of the weather so that it didn't rot or rust due to rain. Until most recently I was holding the pan and next thing I knew the wooden handle snapped off making it completely useless. I definitely don't recommend this for longer use as it will break over time but it does it job. Quite sad that I bought this set for $14 and it's now advertised for $46. I certainly don't feel it's worth $46
Doesn't hold up to multidog yards. Very light weight metal that bends very easily. Will not purchase again
These used to be halfway decent, but the quality has gotten worse and worse. The spade and pan are supposed to be welded together, but it’s as if they were stuck on with a child’s glue stick. The last pair I bought, the spade broke with the first use, and the pan with the second use. And I was not expecting them to chip ice or break the ground, either. But with very ordinary use these do not last. Terrible.
I have purchased several of these Outdoor Dog Spade Sets over the years and this brand is the BEST! They are exceptionally well made, very strong, hold up well with daily use all year round. I am so appreciative of the very long handles, no bending required to scoop the waste up quickly and efficiently. A must have if you have multiple dogs to care for everyday.
Very flimsy. Scoop broke off in 3 months of use. It looks great, but cannot hold up to its use. Needs a better way to be attached to handle!!!!
This was not an inexpensive purchase. The handle on the pan popped off after three or four uses.
The product seems heavy duty by appearance but when we put it to use the bottom pan snapped off the handle almost immediately. We picked up maybe 3 piles of 20lb dogs BM, so it wasn’t heavy.
The stainless steel is very thin, and I somehow managed to bend both the scooper and the bucket part with the first use. My previous scooper from the same company I used for 16 years.
