A snow shovel is an essential tool for anyone living where it snows, these are high quality Swiss army surplus pieces, the handy size makes these perfect for keeping in your car trunk or strapping onto your rucksack for a walk in the woods.

The head is made from a couple of pieces of aluminium and spot welded and / or riveted together. The result is very sturdy, you don't need to worry about accidentaly hitting rocks or some such when shoveling, this piece won't snap in half.

The wooden shaft can easily be replaced if needed - with a longer one, might we suggest! The shovel head has a split tail that is tightened by a simple ring, when tightened a stud presses into the shaft to secure it firmly in place. No screws or such are used in the construction, simple and very reliable!

  • Length 60 cm
  • Weight approx. 550 g

And that's not all, these seem all to be of the same batch, made by ASS in 1939! With quality like this this was probably the first and last series ever made, this thing is virtually indestructible!

Swiss army surplus

Used, but in really nice shape. One did have a couple of bullet holes through it though, this doesn't effect its snow digging capabilities in any way.

Erinomainen autolapio. Jatkoin vartta 1,5 m alumiiniputkella, joka sattuikin sopimaan ilman muita virittelyitä. Useamman kerran olen jo kaivanut autoa hangesta ja tällä saa hyvin lumen ja jään pois auton alta. Siinä on lapion keveys tärkeää.
Tuohon aikaan tehtiin alumiinista karkaistavaa kuparia sekoittamalla (duralumiini). Jollei päivittäin tee esim tomaattikastiketta (hapan liuottaa alumiinia) tällä, niin voi aivan huoletta paistaa satunnaisesti ruokaa tällä. paistaa letut ym. Kuparia liukenee hyvin vähän.

Harvoin tulee näin hyvää tuotetta vastaan. Kuin uuden veroinen, vaikka vuosileima "39". Varren saa vaikka mistä vain kepistä, ja kiinnityssysteemi on helppo ja nerokas. Lapio on myös verrattaen kevyt.

A must buy item. Since the blade is made from aluminum it is far more durable and practical than one made from plastic. A recent snow storm dumped 38 centimeters of snow, gave me a chance to put the shovel good use.

I have been wanting one of these for awhile. I'm glad I ordered one as they are going quickly. Received it yesterday, love the $14.99 DHL Express shipping to the US. The shovel is in new, unissued condition. This is a really handy shovel. You can easily remove the handle for packing, and put a longer handle in if needed. You could even use a branch out in the bush for a makeshift handle. Buy one now while they are still available. A+++

Great shovel for my winter excursions! Mine was in excellent condition! It packs nicely, and is of relatively light weight. Very thick and sturdy, high quality aluminium! The design of this shovel is so simple, it's ingenious!

The hardwood handle on mine was so dry, that the wood grain was popping out and gave it a rough texture. Being that this is a snow shovel, I actually like that the handle is so dry, because the hardwood handle is now extremely light weight, and is the perfect weight for my sled or rucksack. As an added touch, I sanded the handle smooth and gave it a few coats of boiled linseed oil. Wow! Looks amazing! Still lightweight, but revived the wood fibers, making the handle less brittle and less prone to breaking under stress.

It's hard to believe, that this shovel was made in 1939. My shovel looks as if it just recently rolled off of the production line. Old time QC! Highly recommend!

Best $19.00 snow shovel ever made. Light weight-packs down under car seat or under my pillow at night.
Rochester New York dumps snow from Dec-April at anytime....so everyone in my family will have one in their cars soon enough.
Yes I would recommend this shovel---- except I dont want anyone but me to have them....I would buy all of them if my wife was blind and lived with her mother.
