Default carrying an extra shovel dont chip your power coated tunnel

I carry all my Avy stuff on my back like your supposed to but using your shovel or saw requires you take your backpack off..for some reason this is an issue for me and I almost never do...so I decided to carry an additional shovel on the tunnel. I have a backpack style tunnel bag so it's not a big deal, it has a blade pouch and handle storage.

I decided to get this shovel. It is LEXAN so it won't chip my powder coated shovel.

It has a saw in the handle. i asked Voile if they had a lexan shovel and they didnt...sux because they have the best idea for the saw...it clips into the handle and your saw is now as long as your handle. works awesome for getting under the sled.

I too keep all on my back in a BCA mt pro vest with black diamond S7 shovel and 7" saw you can get from Fred Meyer made by Corona. I also have a B1 shovel in a tunnel bag and a 10" folding saw from home depot

76 can you post pictures of the cam lock setup? always looking for better storage ideas. I always wanted clips just behind the front bumper and the handle end up by the windshield to hold the shovel over the hood...also helping push branches out of the way. but havent figured it out. yet.

Shovel / avy gear on your back and an extra shovel in or on a tunnel pack is the way to go. The shovel and gear on my back is for emergency use or we just simply need another shovel in the mix to help, otherwise it stays in my pack.

I personally don't care for the lexan shovels or any "cheap" shovel for that matter. Spend a little extra, get a good quality shovel and don't be disappointed or wishing you would have a better one when someone's life depends on it.
