Fiskars launches Xact range of garden tools

Fiskars has launched the Xact range of digging tools including spades and forks in medium and large sizes to suit different users, a shovel and a compost fork.

Their unique shape and use of material represents a major step forward in long handled tool design, the company says.

Each of large the Xact digging tools retails at £39.99 with medium tools retailing at £34.99. All are widely available in the UK.

Spades and shovels have a new head design made of durable boron steel solidly welded to smart composite and steel shafts for optimised weight, strength and durability.

The forged steel forks are handcrafted to demanding specifications, says Fiskars. The broad push-pull handles are D-shaped for easy grip and leverage and cushioned with Fiskars SoftGrip.  

The range also features a compost fork with fine, widely spaced and curved tines and an upright shaft for shifting and working compost, and the Fiskars Xact shovel with a broad scoop for lifting and moving bulky material such as soil, sand or snow.

James Wong is the new brand ambassador for Fiskars garden hand tools campaign.
