A powerful alpine tool, the Ortovox Beast Saw Shovel is a two-in-one shovel and saw. The aggressive, powder-coated 5052 aluminum shovel blade has high side walls and a tall center ridge that maximizes strength. Non-slip step grooves enable you to confidently drive the shovel with boot soles.
The telescoping shaft has a quick-lock assembly that ensures rigidity and fends off unwanted collapse. The handle incorporates multiple grip positions to accommodate right and left-handed users. Rubber coating on the lower section enables you to use your free hand to maximize power.
A small, sharp saw is integrated into the handle and effectively cuts wood or snow. It’s quite capable of cutting snow blocks for building an igloo or a shelter and can be very helpful in avalanche rescues.
