The DMOS Delta Shovel: Built for Life
ANY JOB. ANYWHERE. ANYTIME
DMOS exists for one simple reason – to break the mold of the common tool. They got started by
creating award-winning snow and ski shovels through massively successful crowdfunding
campaigns. The latest addition to DMOS’ family is the Delta, the next phase in the evolution of
the shovel and a true year-round, multi-application solution.
YOU CAN’T BRING A KNIFE TO A GUNFIGHT
While the first DMOS shovels were conceived to tame snow and ice, the Delta shovel is the first
to make the earth shudder, designed specifically for dirt. Engineered with offroad, camping and
survival needs in mind, the Delta is an elevated take on the classic military entrenching tool (e-
tool), with greater versatility, strength and utility. The e-tool has a long history going back ages,
which has only slightly been improved on over the years and yet it is a common piece of gear
that performs sub-optimally in just about every situation. The Delta is the reinvention of that tool,
but for the modern need of adventurers.
The Delta is chiefly a dirt shovel, but offers a year-round, multi-application solution for any
situation. With its three-part aluminum, telescoping, indexed locking shaft, the Delta Shovel can
extend to a full-sized length or collapse down to a more portable size. With the foldable 3-
position head, the Delta can be used as a shovel, a hoe, and e-tool and folds up for compact
stowing. The collapsible shaft also lets you use the Delta at various lengths (full length is 51”).
Combined together, you get a powerfully versatile tool that’s perfect for every situation.
The Delta has two different material options – either 6061 aircraft grade aluminum or 12-gauge
cold rolled steel. Both styles offer a second-to-none the strength and durability, with a 3 lbs
difference in weight and price being the tradeoff. In addition to incredible strength, the materials
utilized in the Delta also means the tool weighs 3.5 or 6.3 lbs. Collapsed, the Delta shovel stows
down to a compact 11” x 24” x 3” footprint, allowing it to be stored without sacrificing precious
ALWAYS AT HAND. NEVER IN THE WAY
The Delta shovel is a tool worthy of its place on the most discerning 4x4, adventure van or RV.
To ensure that it is close at hand for when things get challenging, a dedicated vehicle mount for
rear spare tires and roof racks is also be offered. This rattle-free and lockable mount allows the
Delta shovel to be quickly deployed in the case a vehicle needs to be recovered, a fire pit needs
to be dug, or the trail needs to be repaired.
The roof rack mount can be quickly installed to a wide variety of offroad and overland roof racks,
truck beds, or spare tire carriers. Constructed from 6061 aluminum, the mount can be installed
on a wide variety of aftermarket or factory equipment. Fits roof bars up to 2.0” in diameter and
includes mounting hardware for roof racks. A padlock can be easily added to the latch on the
mount, preventing jealous lowlifes from walking off with the Delta shovel.
If an adventurer prefers their tools are stored in a vehicle’s drawer system or a gear box, there
is an additional American-made, MOLLE-compatible bag designed specifically for storing the
Delta shovel. Mainly, think of the bag as a way to protect all your other gear from this beastly
QUALITY THAT DOESN’T COMPROMISE
DMOS believes that hardware errors should never happen. The Delta is for those that also do
not accept failure. DMOS shovels are built to the most stringent standards in the Portland, OR
factory out of domestically sourced, premium materials. Every DMOS product is carefully
engineered to the highest tolerances and is covered by a lifetime warranty against
BORN IN WYOMING. MADE IN OREGON.
Every DMOS product is American-made. The company is a champion of the American

make. The manufacturing process is agile, lean and designed to leave as small a footprint as
possible on this incredible planet of ours.
