Air Spade Digging Tool

Amazing technology that uses supersonic air to dig through soil!

Does this sound like some sort of science fiction gadget? We assure you, it is real!
The AirSpade™ uses pressurized air to dig through the toughest soils and clays. The AirSpade™ generates 150 cubic feet per minute (CFM) of air at 90 psi. When this air contacts non-porous items — like cable lines and tree roots — it has little effect. No more "uh-oh" moments on the job site!

The AirSpade™ performs even the toughest tasks like trenching and digging holes for plants. While it is strong, it also has a gentle side. Use your AirSpade on delicate tasks, including:
  • Aerating roots
  • Locating roots for transplanting
  • Performing root collar excavation
  • Locating buried utility lines
AirSpade builds this tool to last. It features a cast aluminum handle and a fiberglass barrel. These materials make the tool heavy in strength, yet light in weight. They machine the nozzle from stainless steel.

For best results, connect the AirSpade to a compressor rated to 150 CFM and 100 psi. See below for buying options.

    FAQ

    • QUESTION: What size air hose do I need with Air Spade?:
    • ANSWER: Generally, a 1" air hose is recommended
    • QUESTION: Can the Air-Spade cut through anything beside soil?
    • ANSWER: Generally, no. Soil is an unconsolidated assemblage of solid particles including clay, sand, and rock and sometimes organic matter. Voids between the particles are occupied by air and/or water. When compressed air is directed into soil at close range, air enters the voids where it expands, thereby fracturing the soil. Stronger, non-porous materials such as metal or plastic pipes, cables, or even tree roots are unaffected.
