Geko Engineering Ltd

Air Spade supplied with two types of lance ends


  • Integrated system to provide a pulsating air jet – more  efficient than a steady air stream

The new Air Spade from Geko Engineering is a quality pneumatically powered excavation tool suitable for many applications where it is essential to avoid mechanical damage to sub surface structures. Amongst the most common uses include exposure of buried pipes and utilities, fibre optic installations, tree root systems, and drainage systems. High frequency, pulsating compressed air displaces compacted sand, soil and gravel, in fact any porous material to “excavate”, without contact and therefore without damage to any non-porous buried object. Tool supplied with straight curved and extension pieces, 3 inter changeable nozzles and air connection.
