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. Heavy Duty 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.

48 in. Fiberglass Handle with 16 in. Solid Shank Blade Heavy-Duty Drain Spade is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handy Tool This drain spade is very useful. It is relatively heavy, but that's what I wanted so its weight would do the work. I have used it to clean dirt from ends of concrete drain pipes (shovels would not reach inside far enough), weed around bushes, loosen soil before using a post-hole digger, and remove dirt around roots and stumps, It will come in handy when I plant some new bushes and flowers. The fiberglass handle has a lifetime warranty and doesn't slip when your hands are sweaty wet. It's a bit pricey, but I wanted the best tool I could get, and I think I got it.
