Care & Use of Your New Anaconda Shovel
Just like any other tool in your arsenal, your new Anaconda (NX-5 or NX-6) Shovel will serve you a lifetime if properly used and cared for. It was designed to cut through roots and saw clean plugs in grass and dirt, and it's pressure tested to 180 to 200 pounds, so it's a tough and awesome tool, but like anything, it does have limitations. It should not be used as a chisel, auger, or pry bar in frozen ground or solid rock. If you sense full resistance, stop and cut another slice into the ground or remove rocks and soil in smaller sections. Do not bang it against cement or rocks to remove mud, as the heat treated steel can crack under that kind of stress. That being said, we've packed these shovels around the globe for years, and have yet to find a better all-around travel shovel! May you find buckets of gold and silver with your new custom Anaconda Treasure Company (ATC) shovel!

The anaconda shovel it a awesome digging tool
This is a great shovel. My years working as a wetland scientist I used a sharp shooter shovel to dig soil pits to determine wetland and upland soil profile and determine upland and hydric soils. The sharp shooter is a great shovel, but I’ve broken the wooden shaft a number of times digging soil pits.
The Anaconda is all metal so no danger of broken shafts. My only complaint it is a little small to be a “cane” to help me stand up and walk as I am 25% Titanium.
I do love the teeth on both sides that slice through tree and shrub roots. I used a metal file to sharpen the bottom of the shovel to make it sharp as a knife and it goes through the toughest soils like a hot knife through cold butter.
This spring (April - May) after selling 5-frame nucs of honeybees for $175.00 each with 2023 Cordovan, Italian, or VSH ProLine Queens I plan to upgrade to a longer Lesche metal shovel. Glad the Anaconda is made in the USA.
Get this shovel. You won’t be disappointed.

NX-6, 36 inch Anaconda Shovel
Haven’t had a chance to use it yet.
But it looks like a well constructed tool.
Very sturdy. Fits my paws nicely.
Received the shovel, looks like a real good quality, couldn’t be happier! Due to the time of year, snow and ice I have yet to be able to utilize it, I will as soon as possible.
