Made from virgin plastics and built strong to withstand the rigors of tree planting. Bushpro has four different types of handles to choose from to meet any planters needs. Our handles are interchangable so if you currently have a Bushpro spade and want to try a different handle you just need to purchase the handle.
Bushpro Comfort D (PC 321)
Introduced in 2013 this handle quickly became our most popular. Found to be more comfortable than our Standard D handle by almost all of Bushpro users. Smaller grip diameter and gently round corners provide an excellent feel. Note this handle has been offered in the past with both a firm wear resistant rubber grip and soft cushion grip. 2018 and forward this product will only be offered with the wear resistant grip. Soft grip is available by request for those who preferred it.
Comes stock on our Speed spade and Hiballer stainless steel shovels. Can be purchased separately.
Standard D handle (PC 320)
Regular D handles are simply not made to stand up to tree planting. Bushpro has developed our own which is 1.5mm thicker on the sides. This adds very little weight and lots of strength. Bright colors are used for our handles making them highly visible. If you have planted before surely you have misplaced your shovel, hi-visibility helps.
Ergo D Handle
The Ergo D represents what is thought to be a more natural position for ones hand. New planters can easily get used to it but for veteran planters it may be difficult to adjust to.
Oval D Handle (PC 315)
Based on the same concept as the Ergo D handle, the Oval D handle is designed to put ones hand in a more natural positon for ambidextrous planters. When being used with the right hand you would grasp the handle on the right side to benefit from the slope and opposite when using the left hand.
Available in neon yellow or neon orange. Can be purchased individually or on a shovel be request.
Staff handle (PC 325)
There is still a small following that prefer the straight or staff handle. Some feel that it's more difficult to hold onto but the advantage is that if you strike a solid object you hand will slip reducing the jarring on your limbs. Some planters like to switch between a D handle shovel and staff shovel to switch it up, giving your body a change.
