DMOS Delta Professional Collapsing Shovel

DMOS Delta Professional Collapsing Shovel

The DMOS Delta shovel and mount are a robust, compact solution to tending camp and vehicle recovery duties. It provides the same benefits as a full size shovel but packs down to the size of a standard backpack. It’s available with either steel or aluminum blades. Both models feature collapsible aluminum handles. The blade is hinged on the top side to reduce its size for stowage. It locks in at 180* for traditional digging and 90* to function as a hoe.

The heavy duty mounting system is lockable with a traditional padlock (not included) and features a flat surface with several holes for mounting to roof racks, bed racks or virtually and other flat surface. It can also be adapted to a roll bar mount with aftermarket mounts.

Overall the Delta feels heavy duty and will likely hold up to years of abuse. If it doesn’t DMOS offers a warranty against deficiencies in material, workmanship or manufacturing defects for one year.
