[Amazon Canada] Gerber E-Tool and Gorge Folding Shovel 48% Off $51.79

The Gerber E-Tool tri-fold shovel with serrated blade is on sale at amazon for ~$52, Historic low was $44 back in 2016.

Link: https://www.amazon.ca/Gerber-30-000075- ... B001JQ5YJ6

Made by Fiskars and is an updated/improved version of the US military folding shovel, features a fiberglass reinforced nylon handle and a steel blade that can be locked at 90 degrees and features a serrated edge. Folds up to about 9"x6" and folds out to roughly 2' long. A very solid product allegedly used by the USMC and Finnish military, excellent for car emergencies and camping, it will beat those wiggly aluminum car snow shovels any day (particularly for digging and chopping ice), and has been extensively tested to survive abuse. Make what you will of the original non-sale price, but either way these are not dollar store quality and the price/build quality reflects that. There is also a model with a fold out forged pick, but that one is not on sale.

The Gerber "Gorge" folding shovel is also on sale for $20, $10 cheaper than MEC and a dollar away from a historic low price according to CCC. It's heavier, not as compact, has has a telescoping handle and hammer function for driving tent pegs, but still a very solid product from the reviews.

I'm thinking to have an emergency shovel in the car for winter. This would be overkill right? Nice shovel though.

Damm. I've wanted an e-tool for a while but I'm so broke right now and can't justify the purchase....

Any other good deals on a (cheaper) small, STRONG shovel for car use only?

I don't need the reduced size and weight of this but I want something strong and a full size shovel is too big. Most of these car / emergency shovels are built like crap and will quickly fail.

It depends on what overkill is to you. It's a small shovel, so if you have no need for space savings and light weight you could get by with just about any other "car" shovel for cheaper. Whatever you decide, It's good to have some kind of shovel because you never know if you'll need it, it could be something as simple as skidding onto the shoulder and getting stuck in the mud or snow.

For strength it seems the only route is getting a medium-sized shovel like the Bond LH015, I'm sure there's a few similar ones in Canada under various brands. I know when I bought my full sized Kobalt branded shovel at Lowes a few years ago they had a smaller D handle version complete with the same fiberglass shaft but much more car friendly. It wasn't cheap though ($20-30? almost the same price as the full sized shovel I was buying), and can't speak to its current price or availability.

It's silly how simple basic tools that have been around forever are such poor quality these days. I bought a "heavy duty" cultivator (the 4 pronged 90 degree pitchfork like thing, not the spinning tines type) and it's garbage, the welds went, the tines weren't sharp out of the factory, and the handle began to bend. Meanwhile a shovel and similar tool from the 70's (maybe 60's?) has kept going with only new handles required - which were simple to bolt on.

Princess auto, under $20. I think it was $17 maybe less

I've seen the type of foldable shovels at Costco also. They bring them back for winter.
The problem with spending 50 on a shovel is that you'll never want to use it because it gets scratched up.

Not overkill but you need a shovel to help with snow shoveling if your car is stuck. So this spade isn't large enough for that purpose.

I have a light , cheapy steel (aluminum?) One that's normal size but very light. In my trunk.

I keep this kit in the trunk. Still haven't opened it but I see tons of cars in the ditch between Edmonton and red deer so I figured might as well. https://www.canadiantire.ca/content/can ... 91617.html

My primary solution to an emergency is to use road side assistance which is included for free with the TD Visa Infinite but thankfully I haven't had to use it too often.
Be a nice person and enjoy life
