Heavy Duty Digging Bars For Contractors

Our range of heavy-duty digging bars makes excavating post holes and trenches in confined spaces far easier than it otherwise would be. Their compact size makes them suitable for use in areas where digging machines cannot access. They are supplied in a range of designs with different working tips, allowing you to pry, chisel and break apart the ground.

We supply this range post post-hole digging bars with a selection of handle types, from the Shocksafe variants (marked with BS8020) that are suitable for use around live wires carrying up to 1000v to those that are fully steel. Some of our heavier bars are suitable for prying apart brickwork and smashing through the rock so that you can easily shovel out the debris.

If you need to dig a hole by hand, these tools can be indispensable as they can be used in areas where even a pick axe would be unwieldy. Our digging bars come from reputable manufacturers with, in some cases, hundreds of years of experience in the industry.
