pwdurhoundwrote a review of Voile Mini Shovel on March 11, 2003
The mini shovel can handle anything a bigger metal shovel can with ease. The super sturdy construction makes it vastly superior to a lexan blade for cutting through ice and debris, and the smaller size wont tax your back when lifting dense snowpack. I find I dig faster with this unit than with a full size blade which is the most important factor when trying to save your buddy. Killer Shovel!!!
