Safely uncover underground utilities with the AirSpade 5000 Utility Series -- the latest innovation in the AirSpade product line. Featuring an in-line style handle, AirSpade 5000 Utility is designed for air excavation applications where gripping the tool in a vertical position is preferred.
AirSpade 5000 Utility harnesses the power of compressed air by incorporating the high-performance, proprietary AirSpade Supersonic Nozzle. Fabricated from non-sparking bronze, the nozzle generates a laser-like air jet that moves at twice the speed of sound for faster, more effective digging.
Rugged, lightweight aluminum handle features full-size grip opening to accommodate linesman's gloves. Comfortable plastic grip provides thermal protection and a degree of electrical insulation. Dead-man trigger ensures safe operation and trigger guard prevents accidental activation. Integral pressure gauge ensures optimal digging performance. 3/4'' NPT compressed air inlet equipped with 3/4'' swivel-type Universal Coupler.
Screw-on, electrically insulated fiberglass barrel rated to 300kV protects operators from buried, high-voltage utility lines. Brass barrel sleeves and connectors minimize sparking potential. Adjustable, rubber dirt shield deflects soil and debris. Detachable, auxiliary handle included.
