The shock resistant digging bar is a new and unique safety tool for the underground utility industries.
When the tool comes into contact with underground energized power lines, its insulator sends the voltage back to the ground, offering the user the benefit of protection from shock by high voltage.
The digging and tamping ends are forged of high carbon steel, and the insulator is fiberglass reinforced polyester resin having an AC dielectric strength of 100KV per foot for five minutes when clean and dry. Special digging bar lengths can be supplied on request.
Meets standards of ASTM F-711 and IEEE 987.
