Dig a fire pit and cut small branches at the campsite with a Coleman Folding Shovel. This compact tool is made of durable steel with a serrated edge for sawing. It measures 10 in. (25.4 cm) when it's folded and fits inside a backpack. When you're ready to use it, the shovel folds out to 23 in. (58.42 cm) and easily locks into place for safety. During the winter, keep the shovel in your trunk to clear snow and ice in an emergency.
Our scouting group wanted a shovel for digging fire pits and removing hot coal and ash. For the price, this is a great shovel. Not what we use for backpacking (we have Coghlan trowels for 'cat holes') but great for base camp use. Have held up well and fold up easy enough to fit into our gear box. Sturdy handle and shaft allow you to put some weight into digging and allow to carry some weight easily.
When making your essential emergency car kit or a basic camping kit a collapsible shovel is a must. The Coleman Folding Shovel fits the bill with its hardy construction and small, space saving, design. The shovel end folds up so it is compact, taking up very little room. Yet, when it is down, it locks in firmly and there is no worry about it collapsing on you as you dig into the ground or are transporting hot coals from one area to another. Haven't tried digging out a tire, yet, but have tried just digging into the ground and moving embers around. Love it! I don't think I will be digging trenches with it but it is a handy little tool to have, doesn't take up much space and beats using my hands but far!
This is a replacement shovel for an ice and snow. This is smaller in overall length when folded, than the single fold with wood handled ex-military shovel I loaned to a brother in an emergency. The all metal shovel and handle, with very little plastic, was a great surprise. No cover delivered with the shovel meant no cover was necessary for the shovel. I was surprised to agree with the reduction in unnecessary material. The size is small enough to fit behind the seat in my truck. The design is not like a real fiberglass long handled fifty-dollar plus shovel, but in an emergency, this little shovel will not give out under usage. The spade and length are not generous but again for an emergency and the cost I give this a high 9 (This ain't eBay for requiring 10s or 5s, as I can use a nine rating and the seller won't get concerned. I have heard the 40-character rule, Edgar Alan Poe might be capable ...). However, if one is to consider any real shoveling, purchase a longer handled shovel.
The fat metal part you see in the picture on the shaft? - yeah, that one, it's not big enough. So when you slide it all the way up - your shovel is going to close anyway on your first dig. It could be used to move ashes around in a fire pit, that's about it. I returned in within 15 minutes of opening the box. Buy yourself a stand US Military Issue E-Tool if you need to do more than build sandcastles with your shovel.
This item is cheap and does not perform its advertised function. You cannot use it as a shovel and there is no positive fit locking collar. AS soon as you extend the shovel the shovel blade collapses back and flops freely. There is no way to use this as advertised and you should immediately search for another product. Do not buy this item.
I had thought I was orderingh the discription and the picture, well i didnt get that. I got a little noname screw on shovel. That bends one the first use. Trying to let the seller know I messaged three times. I then was asked if I could send pictures, I did... Then it was send it back with special instructions. The bag is long gone by the time I got the last message. Still have not heard from seller. So her is my review dont buy unless you want a cheap bendable shovel that looks nothing like described or picture.
This shovel was easy to put together and to re-fold when done. Easy to store. Weight is good and very sturdy.
Bought 3 of them for 3, 7 year old boys to dig in the crater park diamond mine in south Arkansas. They worked great for finding all kinds of rocks other than diamonds ;) Compact, sturdy and functional. For a small shovel cant beat the price.
Tal vez fue mala suerte, pero la pala no funcionó, el sistema plegable nunca pudo colocarse en forma rígida. Me parece que el hecho de que tenga piezas móviles eventualmente puede terminar generando problemas como éste. El producto fue devuelto.
It’s a little on the heavy side, but I guess it needs to be in order for it to be durable.
Buena y durable, se mantiene bien tensa mientras se realiza el trabajo, ocupa poco espacio cuanto está plegada. No viene con estuche, así que podría ensuciar el equipo con el que se comparta espacio si se utiliza en el lodo. La "sierra" del costado no está afilada, así que no sirve de mucho.
It's strong, sturdy and has a good thick paint finish. Looks genuine Coleman to me since it came in original Coleman box with import sticker etc on it. Pan has Coleman logo Taiwan engraved on it. Folds nicely into compact size.
el producto es bueno de facil transporte y al utilizarlo se siente firme y ayuda a excavar facilmente, yo lo utilizo para excavar en arena por lo que es muy sencillo a lo mejor en suelos mas duros puede ser mas dificil por que el largo de la misma es pequeño pero me sirve .
This is not original coleman shovel. They are cheating us.. Today i received the product and it looked ugly , no brand name mentioned anywhere... Just requested for return.. Dont buy this cheap product sold by king automotives.
Resistente, hay que saberla doblar. Me hubiera gustado que trajera una bolsa para meterla, para que no ensucie mochila o cajuela. Perfecta para camping en auto.
Shovel doesn't lock into place. Basically useless as anytime you try to apply any force at all the shovel folds over on itself.
Good and looks heavy duty lets see performance.
Very good product for off road car lover. Shovel is foldable so it take very small space in car boot .item was delivered very fast by delhivery courier.
