Lifetime warranty and you can get even cheaper at Home Depot.
+1 I have one of these too. Perfect size.The Bully Tools 92711 (D grip version) shovel has served me well for a few years now. Not very long, not very short, seems to do adequate in most scenarios. It’s made in the USA and pretty inexpensive.
The Bully Tools 14-Gauge Floral Spade (long handle or poly D-grip options) is the ideal tool for digging through soil in small garden areas.bullytools.com
I have a couple of those also. Best thing I did was replace its handle with about 10” longer.
Well there were those videos a dude posted of the DMOS shovel being all sloppy and loose at every joint when brand new - that's enough to make me not want it even at $10 . I have yet to see any proof that they're not all like that and his was some sort of anomaly.I know everyone’s bitching about the high cost of that DMOS GI style shovel that goes for $200. But I’m sure someone has bought one and I sure would like to see some feedback. Please don’t tell me the price is crazy. We all know that.
I carry a regular long handled construction grade spade that is cut down a bit so that it will fit in the AEV spare tire carrier/fuel caddy/shovel holder/high lift jack carrier/pull pal carrier on my Jeep. If I am going on mountain forest service roads where I might run into road blockages due to mudslides or rockslides I like to carry a mattock - it's the best tool short of an excavator that I have found for cutting a bench through a mud, rock or snow slide across a road (avalanche debris is very dense!). At a minimum I also carry a bow saw for the inevitable downed tree(s), and if I am planning on travelling a road which may not get much traffic I may bring my chainsaw, but that is pretty rare.anyone substitute (or include) a hoe for deep moving (deep meaning far under the vehicle on horizontal plane)?
also, heavy as expected they would be, but my landscaper uses all steel tools which can be welded if needed or beat back into shape:

I did see a review that stated the pins were loose but DMOS had fixed that. I’m waiting to see one at a show or in someone’s hands.
Sure you're not talking about the german trench tool? That's the best wood handle pick/shovel I know of. They're getting pricey, used to be bins full of them 15 bucks a pop in great shape with good leather scabbards and minimal wear.. Now they go for $60 with dry leather or none at all
