BCA D2 EXT Dozer Shovel/Hoe
The BCA D2 EXT Dozer Shovel with Hoe capabilities is the ultimate tool for “strategic shoveling” and digging out stuck snowmobiles. The Dozer is the most effective hoe shovel available, with positive slip-proof grips on both the shaft and blade. Easily converts to traditional shovel.
Things to consider when buying an avalanche shovel:
- Size – does the shaft and blade fit in your pack? (note: the bigger the shaft and blade – the more effective the shovel is).
- Weight – is it light enough to carry if you’re ski touring?
- Durability – will it stand up to the rigors of digging through avalanche debris? (note: more durable shovels are inevitably heavier!)
- Grip: D-grip vs. T-Grip – D-Grips are more ergonomic and will make you a better shovel, but are heavier than a T-Grip.
