Check out the Root Assassin in action!

The Root Assassin Shovel is designed for clearing out overgrown areas of garden, forest or brush. With the serrated edges on both sides of the shovel and a unique ability to cut the root while digging in and pulling out, the Root Assassin is the perfect tool for clearing out your garden.
The engineered “bone structure” adds amazing strength without adding weight and the sharpened and curved serrated edges cuts roots easily. The unique shape of the serrated teeth located on each side of the shovel are built to withstand the toughest jobs and can be sharpened with a wheel or grinder.
The shovel is made of solid structural carbon steel and is overlaid with a sleek silver color powder coat. The ergonomically designed steel shaft is topped with durable solid rubber coated bright red handle for comfort and ease of locating amid the grounds. Weighing 4 pounds, it’s light enough to be dragged along for a long day and yet strong enough to provide the leverage needed to get the job done.

“I needed to dig up a 5 x 8’ area of sod and rocky clay soil to install a raised garden bed. This shovel came through like a champion! I did try out the other two shovels I’d had, and neither one made much of a dent in the project.”

We always look for new tools that are well-built, sturdy, ergonomic, light weight, and reasonably priced. The “Root Assassin” proved to be a versatile and valued garden tool once we put to the test. Removing unwanted plants, even in small delicate areas without disturbing surrounding plants was just as easy as handling larger tasks because of Its unique narrow blade saw construction. This garden tool can dig and saw, slice, cut, and chop as a tool that has proven to be a true back and time saver and receives our “Thumbs Up.”

Lynn & Richard Voigt, Brookefield, Wisconsin
The Root Assassin Shovel lived up to its name in a trial in my vegetable garden. Preparing my raised beds for spring planting was easily accomplished as the Root Assassin cut through roots left by last year’s crop, cover crops and invading tree roots. Roots up to 1 inch or more were so easily cut I barely noticed they were there.
