World’s Most Expensive Hand Shovel?

Wednesday, September 28th, 2011

Extreme Outback Products introduces the Ultimate Shovel: Aussie-proven performance for soldiers, off-roaders, outdoorsmen and field service people

Military folding shovels are compact and well-suited for garden-variety camping duty. Full-sized landscaping shovels are more functional but are a pain to pack. Extreme Outback Products offers the best of both worlds for people who do serious digging but need stowable convenience: The Ultimate Shovel. Engineered in Australia and tested in the Outback, this three-piece shovel features a muti-core, steel-reinforced fiberglass shaft. Unlike imitation models that aren’t reinforced, the Ultimate Shovel won’t snap while digging out vehicles buried in deep sand. When the job requires only a spade, the D-handle’s steel threads screw directly into the 7.5-inch-wide heat-treated blade assembly. The Ultimate Shovel is ideal for everything from overlanding to field service to “soft-roading.” All three pieces stow in an included bag.

Vacaville, CA - Extreme Outback Products created the Ultra Light 3.0 all-aluminum air tank for a severely weight-restricted military application. However, this 3-gallon tank — which weighs only 6 pounds — is ideal for any situation where lightweight air storage is needed. Custom-vehicle air-suspension systems is one obvious use, as are corrosive marine and off-road applications.

The Ultra Light 3.0 features five 3/8-inch outlet ports and a 1/4-inch drain port. The tank is built to DOT-standard 750-psi burst strength. Measurements are 7-inch diameter by 24 inches long. Standard finish is raw aluminum; polishing and powdercoating are available extra-cost options. Extreme Outback can also custom-make tanks to customers’ specs in both aluminum and steel.

Crucial components include a 1.5-horsepower fan-cooled motor and other parts shared with Extreme Outback’s “normal” ExtremeAire Magnum compressor: permanently lubed and sealed bearings, heat-dissipating cylinder coating and stainless steel hardware.
