This model of Bulldog’s Insulated Newcastle Drainer boasts a treaded blade for greater comfort and a more powerful digging action. Treads have been welded onto the blade’s upper edge, enabling you to use your feet in the digging motion without causing damage to your footwear or slipping when working in wet and muddy conditions.

Manufactured to meet BS8020 standards, this shovel has been tested to 10,000 volts and is guaranteed to withstand 1,000 volts, supplied with a Certificate of Conformity. Thanks to its long and narrow blade, this shovel is perfect for digging holes, deep narrow trenches, channels for cables, pipes, and drains, and post holes.

The Newcastle Drainer boasts a strong and durable blade (L 407mm x W 175mm) which has been solid-forged with the socket from a single piece of manganese steel (no welds or weak points), and then been given an epoxy coating. Its round corners meanwhile help to significantly reduce the risk of penetration damage to underground pipes and cables when you are digging.

This tool also features a collar with a protective wear sleeve, insulating your hands for safe use at all times. Comfortable use meanwhile is ensured by the D-shaped handle of the 28” (711mm) shaft, made from one fibreglass piece for excellent strength and longevity

About Bulldog Tools
Bulldogs are so called because they were once commonly used in the (now thankfully defunct) sport of bull-baiting. As such, it’s no surprise that over the centuries bulldogs were bred to be tough and powerful creatures. Bulldog Tools, on the other hand, is a UK based company which has specialised in the creation of high quality gardening equipment since 1780, when the company was first established at the Clarington Forge site in Wigan. Like the canine from which the company draws its name, Bulldog Tools’ range of equipment is made to be robust, strong and admirably reliable. As they are also built to last, purchasing a Bulldog Tool is always a long-term investment which offers great value alongside superb performance. In fact, the company is so confident in the sturdiness of its forged garden spades and forks that many tools even come with a lifetime manufacturer’s guarantee.

Bulldog Tools are still made at Clarington Forge today, making the company one of the oldest businesses still existing in the Wigan area and the only full time forge still making spades and forks within the UK. With well over two centuries of experience in the industry the people at Bulldog Tools have honed their craft to absolute perfection, creating a variety of superb spades and forks which have heads forged from a single piece of steel and securely riveted to a sturdy ash shaft. The use of these high quality techniques and materials has ensured that Bulldog Tools’ equipment is renowned across the world for its durability and effectiveness.

If this still hasn’t convinced you that Bulldog Tools is a company which offers something a little bit different than most, you should probably be aware that in 2010, as part of its 230th anniversary celebrations, Bulldog Tools broke the Guinness World Record™ for the largest garden spade in the world! Not content with this, Bulldog has since broken the record again with an even larger spade measuring an impressive 4.5 metres, which has also been displayed at the Eden Project in Cornwall.

Definitely more than just another tool company, then.
