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 27 in. Heavy Duty Square Point 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.
  • All Nupla handles are proudly manufactured in the USA
  • All Nupla tools feature lifetime nuplaglas handles for strength, safety, and durability
  • Nupla's non-slip handle designs can be used in wet conditions where moisture-laden wood or tubular steel would have disastrous results
  • Smooth, resin rich Nupla handle surfaces protect users from splinters and resist UV deterioration
  • All Nupla products are warranted against any and all defects in material or manufacturing
  • Classic Lifetime Nuplaglas handles do not absorb moisture
  • Nupla handles are unaffected by sub zero temperatures, do not conduct heat or cold and are impervious to industrial chemicals
  • Nuplaglas handles have a longer job site life expectancy since they are unaffected by moisture, fungus, termites or dry rot that destroy wood handles

You can never go wrong with Nupla fiberglass handles –among the best in the industry. Rest assured that this beast of a handle will probably outlive you. I own a number of their hand tools and I’m very pleased. Shoveling with this square point is a breeze. The only gripe I have about this shovel is that the handle doesn’t come with a soft grip … which is a relatively standard feature on just about every brand of shovel out there. Anyway, great performance won’t disappoint.

Bought this shovel and then found out I already had a similar tool (Ridgid). Therefore, I did a side by side comparison moving some gravel and digging a small hole. This product is nice, but the handle is a little short for a tall guy. Also, the bend is a bit less aggressive. It's sturdy and gets the job done, but will remain the secondary tool for when I have a helper.

Heavy-duty
Shovel is well-made and should be able to take a lot of abuse. In my opinion the handle is too heavy, to the point the balance of the shovel is off. If I was a really big guy then this would probably be fine, but I find the handle is not only too heavy, it is too big around. I would only recommend this for someone that has a large frame and/or has large hands.

I got this shovel to replace an old one with a gnarly old wooden handle. The composite material on the handle of this shovel is exceptionally strong and should easily outlast any wood handles. I also found the weight and feel preferable to wood. The square shovel head was heavy duty and should outlast me!
