Air-Spade, a division of Guardair Corporation, announced the Air-Spade 2000 excavation tool, which is ideal for uncovering underground objects, or even sensitive tree roots without harm. Utilizing the power of compressed air and featuring a high performance, patented supersonic nozzle, Air-Spade 2000 provides quick and efficient digging.
