Super Shovel by Krazy Beaver

Half the work of shoveling comes down to actually breaking through the topsoil in order to really get digging. Sometimes it can be a breeze – but more often than not the crust or ice is thick enough to slow you down something serious. The Super Shovel by Krazy Beaver is designed to break though that first part of a job so you can cut your digging time in half.

Based in Albuquerque, New Mexico, this small company turns out utterly rugged tools that boast twice the thickness and strength as most all other shovels on the market. With thick spikes at the tip of the blade meant for breaking through tough topsoil or ice, and a tough 14 inch fiberglass handle this thing is ideal for bringing with you while off-roading or when you’re headed out to a particularly tough job site. Prices start at $60. [Purchase]
