The Krazy Beaver Shovel is Made in the USA! Measures 40in Total length. Excellent for Camping, Hunting and Off-Road use. The head's powder coating used is black. Manufactured using Heavy Duty 13 gauge heat treated tempered steel. Twice as thick as a normal residential shovel. Reinforced teeth to prevent bending and breaking. Powder coated both inside and out from the head to handle area to prevent rust. The Krazy Beaver Shovel can be used for regular digging, and in extreme situations, can be used to assist in penetrating ice and clay. The Handle is made of lightweight but extremely strong fiberglass. Handle is a dark grey/black color. (Graphite in color) The head to handle connection has a permanently mounted solid 12in fiberglass reinforcing core to withstand breakage during the most extreme circumstances. At the end of the handle under the D-Grip, there is a hollow section that can be used for storage of emergency items such as matches, flint, hooks, fishing line, and batteries. The D-Grip is made of solid polymer. There is no soft rubber on these grips. The reason for the use of the solid polymer is because soft rubber begins to break down and becomes sticky over time. Unlike regular PTO or quick release pins, you can actually use gloves when handling the lock pins. The tab makes it easy to attach or remove from the shovel. In addition to being easy to use, these pins are easy to find when accidentally dropped in the sand or mud, unlike a two piece pin that has a separate pin and wire.
