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. Drain Spade 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 4.5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by NICE HEFT After using a D-handle drain spade for tree-hole digs for decades, I decided to buy this long-handled spade. So far I love it! It has nice heft, good weight (tad on the heavy side), and the long handle means no more stooping to dig the two feet plus holes. The heavier weight enables me to cut right through pretty sizable tree roots in the soil without throwing the spade at them like a spear. Should help alleviate my elbow tendonitis. January 21, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by searched high and wide for this spade ............. this a great shovel for digging any deep hole in rocky soil at best price I found anywhere. Nupla is a great brand. 'closed back' or 'solid shank' are a little stronger for heavy duty work but cost at least $20 more. Very happy with this workhorse. May 2, 2012
