According to Wikipedia, a shovel is tool used for digging, lifting, and moving bulk materials and is used extensively in Agriculture. Most shovels are hand tools consisting of a broad blade fixed to a medium-length handle. Shovel blades are usually made of sheet steel or hard plastics and are very strong. Shovel handles are usually made of wood.
