While some may view our shovels as a homeowner’s tool that lives in a garage or tool shed, we see them as an iconic symbol of our heritage. For us, our shovels serve as a reminder to keep pushing strong because of the great impact they have made on the world around us throughout the years. Whether our shovels were used in times of war, to build new paths for transportation, or to construct parts of our country’s infrastructure, they’ve contributed to building America as we know it today and will continue to keep our land strong.
