Irwin adds new Speedbor spade bits


Irwin has redesigned its Speedbor spade bits with a chamfered cutting edge for durability and faster drilling, according to the company.

“Irwin Speedbor Spade Bits have been enhanced to give users the speed, life and precision they need, and in certain sizes, to cut more holes in less time,” says product manager Jeff Burrill. “The bit redesign focused on these three aspects and the new bits deliver quality and performance that stand up to jobsite demands.”

The bits are designed to evacuate chips quickly to drill faster.
