Product Overview

Nupla has been an innovator for over 70 years in the development of fiberglass technologies and has earned the reputation as the industry standard for fiberglass striking, cutting, digging, and fire tools. Nupla handles are unaffected by sub zero temperatures, do not conduct heat or cold and are impervious to industrial chemicals. Nupla handles are also non-conductive and have a built in dielectric safety feature since Lifetime Nuplaglas is one of the finest insulators available. The 48 in. Trenching Shovel handle is solid pultruded fiberglass made with thousands of fiberglass strands and a unique resin making it super strong and resistant to weather, chemicals and insects (unlike most wooden handles). The shovel can be used for house and road construction, farming, landscaping, utilities, and any other heavy duty application requiring concerted use of force.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Handy Shovel to have around I recently used this shovel to dig out a sprinkler head and the line that feeds the head in my yard. The design of the shovel is such that it makes trenching along the path of the water line a breeze. The blade is sharp and the handle is very easy on the hands. It's a great addition to my shovel line up! July 21, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wow Trenching Shovel I was expecting a good strong shovel but this trenching shovel really exceeded my expectations and I am very pleased. The handle is super strong, heavy weight and long. The head is coated, slim, narrow and together they appear like they will last forever. July 5, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Light Weight and Strong I'm a petite woman with a lot of work that needs to be done on my property. I'm not a weakling, but heavy shovels and pickaxes zap my strength pretty quick. I needed a light narrow shovel for digging trenches, grading projects, garden prep, and digging up shrubs and trees to move. This trenching shovel is just what I needed. I was trying to dig a drainage trench with a regular shovel in a tight space and it was really difficult. I went back in with this and was able to dig an 18' trench in about 5 minutes or so, with ease. It even slices though small roots nicely with a few jabs. Because made of fiberglass, it's light, so I can focus all my energy and strength into the digging, rather than the wielding. So far I've used to to dig 2 trenches, I've used it in a grading application, I use it in my garden, I use it more than my other shovels some days, because it light and digs to well. Also, because of it's bright yellow handle, it doesn't get lost in my garage, I don't waste time truing to locate it amongst my other shovels and rakes. So, in another way it saves me time and energy. July 3, 2014
