    Looking for a Heavy Duty Sand and Water Scoop

    Hello, I am in the market for a heavy duty long handle sand and water scoop. Though I will not be going to the beach much any more I still don't mind paying for good equipment, for it can mean the difference between success or not, besides I don't wont it to break. Any opinions are welcome.
    Thanks!

    Re: Looking for a Heavy Duty Sand and Water Scoop

    I can recommend a stainless steel beach made scoop by Kevin Nuttall. It is built like a tank, and will last forever, and it digs a big footprint. He also sells them on Ebay. This is a link to his web site http://www.nuttallenterprises.com/servlet/StoreFront -- Good hunting....

    I've used many different ones and the one I like is the one made by Sunspot Products http://www.sunspotedm.com/beachscoops/ The one Castnet makes is very nice too.

    Look right here. Check out Zekes scoops. Do a search for his posts. I have one of the short handled ones and it's built like a tank but light as a feather. He makes every one by hand. You'll love it.

    Re: Looking for a Heavy Duty Sand and Water Scoop

    I would highly recommend http://www.nuttallenterprises.com/servlet/StoreFront

    I have only tried 3 long handled scoops in my long metal detecting career (about 3 years).

    The first one the handle bent in two.

    The second would never do what I wanted it to do. It would twist around and didn't lift much. Expensive on Ebay and won't say which just in case it offends someone.

    The third I bought from Travis. The first time you try it out on the beach you will find out that it means business. I felt like a gladiator walking with it. It really bites down into the wet sand rather than twist around.

    Thanks.

    Re: Looking for a Heavy Duty Sand and Water Scoop

    Scoops have become soo expensive. Not sure what access you have to tools but, I made a nice very heavy duty scoop this way.
    3 or 4 inch diameter conduit like they use to run electrical wires through..about a 9 inch section cut at an angle then drilled full of holes. Then 1 inch conduit welded to the side , as long as you like for a handle. You can cover the "butt" end of the scoop with screening or I used the cover from an electrical junction box, cut round and welded to the end and of course drilled full of holes. It was a bit heavy so I drilled more holes and cut the handle to about 12 inches long. I don't have a picture but It really does work well. If you lightly spray it with wd-40 every now and then, it will never rust. Also any drink pitcher full of holes is a cheap alternative. lol. Hope some of this babble helps. HH dave.

    Re: Looking for a Heavy Duty Sand and Water Scoop

    OK, here are the pics. You cant really tell because of the color of the carpet, but theres holes in the end too. Honestly, I kind of wish I had mounted the handles at an angle just a little bit now. Other than that. They were very cheap, I think I spent 10.00 total. They are VERY tough! Hope any of this helps. HH dave.
    Thanks to 49erjohn for the help welding and building. :O)
