    The patented Bottom Digger is a trench cleanout tool that is faster and easier to use than a standard trenching shovel. Use in 4" and wider trenches.
    It is pulled through the trench (not pushed like a shovel) to remove loose soil. It's like a narrow backhoe bucket on a stick. Your crew can get jobs finished quicker with much less back strain.

Description of this cleanout tool:   Quick explanantion of how the Bottom Digger works, and how it compares to a common trenching shovel.

*Unit shown was a prototype that was a little wider than the current 3" model.

 


How to use the Bottom Digger: Demonstration of our special trenching tool being used to remove soil from a deep trench.

Notice the upright posture of the man, even though this is a 24" deep trench.


NOTE : the Bottom Digger is only for removing loose soil from the trench, or removing occasional high spots in the trench (by using the toothed side of the blade).   It is NOT for digging the trench. To dig the trench you would use a powered trencher, or manually with a trench digging shovel or a trenching hoe (see these manual tools farther down the page).

Is it really that much better?

Yes, it is. We had a race to clean out two identical trenches...and the Bottom Digger was more than twice as fast. (video below) Also see the drawings below of your posture using different tools. Preventing just one back injury, or even one trip to the chiropractor, easily pays for difference in cost between a Bottom Digger and a standard trench cleanout shovel.

A great tool ! Made my job much easier as I trenched over 100 feet.

I've bought several tools from easy digging - I've been super happy with every single one of them. They are such better tools than you can find in any of the retail big-box stores.
