The Roughneck drainage shovel head is made from fully hardened pressed steel to provide strength. With a strong 660mm (26″) fibreglass handle and a comfortable double injected “D” grip. The treads on the blade help increase the amount of pressure that can be applied and reduce the risk of slippage. The strong yet lightweight construction reduces fatigue and increases efficiency. It is ideal for digging deep narrow trenches, for laying drains, pipes and cable channels. Also ideal for digging holes for posts and signs. This shovel has a blade width of 110mm (4 1/2") and overall length of 1080mm (43").
