Where's a hoe when you need one? When your regular shovel can't get it done, or you're exhausted by lifting shovelful after shovelful of heavy compacted snow, hacking and dragging it is sometimes the most efficient way to excavate a victim. The BCA D-2 Extendable Dozer Hoe Shovel can become just that, alternating between extendable shovel and hoe as you see fit. Burly construction with no-slip handles at both shaft and blade when in hoe mode are suitable for avalanche professionals or SAR work, but even casual backcountry skiers and boarders should seriously consider adding this tool to their collection.

Comments about BCA D-2 Extendable Dozer Hoe Shovel:
I have used several shovels in the past. This one is my favorite for many reasons. First I was able to keep the shovel in tact with the shovel head and shaft connected, saving precious moments in a moment of need. The Shovel is also very light weight. The ability to switch from a traditional shovel attachment to a "hoe" style is really awesome. The "hoe" feature enables you to move a lot of snow quickly! The metal is very durable and the handle very comfortable in your hand. Best shovel ever!
