DMOS Introduces the Compact Delta Shovel and Mount

DMOS Pro Shovel Tools recently released a new, compact shovel to rival the standard military-issue E-tool.

If you’ve ever had the misfortune of using an E-Tool, you’ll know that they’re good for one thing – digging a cat-hole. Never mind trying to unstick a vehicle or digging out a washout while you’re on the trail. The Delta Compact Shovel has a comparable blade size to a traditional E-tool, but it was created to be both stronger and taller.

DMOS Compact Delta Specs

The Compact Delta has an overall height of 33-inches when the telescoping handle is fully extended, but it can be used at a 24-inch handle height as well. The shovel blade is created with 14-gauge cold-rolled carbon steel with 12-gauge cold-rolled carbon steel brackets. The connectors and handle are milled and extruded from 6061 aluminum billet. The Compact Delta is rated at over 400-pounds of force with a 4-to-1 fulcrum.

DMOS Compact Delta Mount

The smaller size of the Compact Delta makes it a perfect fit for vehicles like side-by-sides, motorcycles, and vehicles with tight fitment areas with the Compact Mount (sold separately.) The Compact Mount fits not only the DMOS Shovels, but also any shovel you own with a diameter of one– to two–inches. The entire mount is 7-inches by 5-inches and includes a channel for any Master Lock to add some security. The Compact Delta Mount has rubberized edges, so your shovel doesn’t rattle around on the road or on the trail.
