Digging Tool

Recommended Posts

I was wandering Ace hardware the other day and spotted this sexy little heavy duty claw digging tool hanging on the rack priced for around $15 if I remember right. Made of aluminum and really solid with a comfortable handle I JB welded two neodymium bar magnets for searching iron infested signals on the top hopefully out of the way enough to stay in place.AD33D4BE-37A2-4147-9FB5-096D512432B9.thumb.jpeg.4a144cb99d0ac72735e811256edabcdd.jpeg

Magnets probably cost more than the digging tool :)

Yep, I think the magnets were a couple bucks more total.

      I got my scoop today. I shouldve done more research before buying one but wanted to get out asap and this one shipped fast. I'll try it out tomorrow or friday. After watching some YouTube videos it seems the guys have scoops with much bigger mouths and more holes drilled.

      I would like to introduce to you my new favorite hand digger. After about three weeks of detecting, I have come to love this new digger I have come across. It's small, light weight (about 10 1/2 oz.) and super strong. The handle design is not your typical T handle, It is reversed and angled for better leverage while digging. Great for some of us with bad hands and It's made from heat treated Chromoly steel. The edges are serrated and the tip is perfectly designed and sharp. The handle has a bed liner type grip and 3/4 inch tubing. The blade is 2 1/4 inches wide and 6 inches long. The overall length is about 12 1/2 inches at its longest measurement. This guy has figured out what diggers are supposed to be. I added a custom paint job and paracord /carabiner clip, The paint job  is holding up better than I thought and In my opinion this is one of the best diggers I have ever used.  Well where do you get one????? Lucky for you members here, It's made Here in the USA by one of our great members Kac. He makes them on a limited basis and Quantity so be aware that there are only so many to be had at a given time. Kac will give you all the details on pricing and shipping if you PM him.

      I ordered a battery operated sweeper attachment for my EGO power head this is a rotary bristle brush one of a number of different attachments available for this device, the supplier instead sent me the rubber brush instead with paddle like bristles intended to sweep soil, gravel and rocks. Although not the one I wanted, I figured it might be useful out in the gold fields so threw it into the Jeep for a quick run. This line of garden equipment is really powerful but sweeping gravel off the lawn is one thing moving dirt looking for gold much more demanding so while a fun experiment I didn’t expect the results I’d get out at gold basin to be promising or practical. To my surprise this little sweeper managed to perform much better than I expected. In a wash it easily moved 5” or so of dirt from a small area in just 5 or 10 minutes, in the other picture I used it to knock down a small tailings pile from a dozer push, although a little challenging to control because it wants to dig straight down if it had a bicycle wheel attached behind the spinning broom you could easily sweep 1” inch layers off in 21” wide strips and go down in larger areas more evenly. The brush attachment runs $250 and the power head $150 bare bones without battery or charger, it managed to survive the day without breaking and might have use patch cleaning but I’m really unsure about it holding up out there with regular use?

      I'm completely new to this sport. Boy that Simplex + was sure tempting.  Question,  looking to buy a Grave Digger shovel what size should I get 27 or 36 inches. Size don't matter right? Hehe They're sure pretty.
      Thanks in advance for your input.

      when moving lots of material, or breaking down an old drywasher tailing.  I like to break the crust and knock them down by six inches or more.  Smooth it out, let it dry for a few minutes, and your coil just glides.  I added magnets sheathed in stainless steel to help clean up the trash.
