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.

Heavy Duty Round 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.

48 in. Fiberglass Handle Heavy-Duty Round Point Shovel is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is your basic round point shovel with a different kind of handle, the handle is a little lar... This is your basic round point shovel with a different kind of handle, the handle is a little larger in diameter at the top and instead of being round it is kind of oval. I have mixed feelings about the handle, time will tell whether I really like it or not. Some of the time using it I thought it felt really nice and other times I thought it felt a little clumsy. The finish on the handle could have been a little better, there were several rough seams and some holes, a little sand paper smoothed it right off, but that should have been done at the factory. The shovel blade is about the same weight and thickness of most other shovels, I thought it could have been just a smidge thicker. The handle feels quite solid with very little flex. The overall length is 57.5" and the blade is about 11 inches long and 9 inches wide, and it weighs about 5.5 lbs. The metal portion of the shovel is about 19 inches long. You will have to decide for yourself if you like the handle or not. But all in all a nice shovel.

I just do not understand why this shovel is not in your gigantic stores. The $7 and $14 dollar shovels that are in the store are useless for actual digging.

The handle, although it is supposed to be fiberglass, has the look and feel of a heavy plastic, I went ahead and dug it under a heavy root and it didn't bend, So, yes this shovel is good and sturdy The part where you place your foot on the back of the blade is also heavy gauge metal - I was wearing slippers, not shoes, and it din't hurt at all.Thumbs up on this specific feature. For older yards with established bushes and root systems, this is an excellent tool to have.

The difference is amazing. The fiberglass handle feels much sturdier than what I had. Good solid feel. I really like the tapered effect of the handle to make it conform to the hand much better. The shovel itself is a high quality so I don't believe I'll be sharpening it near as much. Less shoulder and back pain. It has a good weight and all things combined it has already become one of my go to garden items.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great for cutting this is one of my favorite shovels it is very strong you can pry rocks out easily cut 2" thick roots by just using the shovels weight it seams like it sharpens itself while you dig its a great tool

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fiberglass Handle Heavy Duty Round Point Shovel. This is a very sturdy shovel. I had broken my ... Fiberglass Handle Heavy Duty Round Point Shovel. This is a very sturdy shovel. I had broken my previous shovel handle trying to remove some stubborn shrub roots in my yard where they are not needed. I got this shovel to finish the task. This shovel made short work of removing the second one. The shovel blade is very strong, and the handle is very sturdy. The shovel did not have any trouble digging and prying out the tap root of the stubborn plant. I love the fiberglass handle. It is more of an oval shape (not pure round) and is very comfortable to hold. I am very happy with this shovel, and is so strong that I expect it to last me for a long time.

The Nupla 48 inch fiberglass handle heavy duty round point shovel is a great shovel. Lightweight due to the fiberglass handle, it's also super strong, and has a bit of flex so you don't break anything. Handle is also extra long for some added leverage. Perfect for digging holes, shoveling from a wheelbarrow, etc., this shovel has some grip to it on the fiberglass as well, so you don't lose it or have it slip while you're working. Product is also made in the USA for those who are interested in supporting domestic manufacturing jobs. Great shovel, great value, expect to be using this for years to come.

The handle is slightly oval which fits nicely in the hand and is void of any foam grips (I dislike foam grips which which just degrade over, break off when the shovel is tossed in the back of a truck and/or move around after days of shovel. The shaft is heavy duty, stiff, yet light. The fiberglass handle can be engraved which will prevent your shovel from ending up in another's crew's truck.
