Strong. Full-Sized. Collapsible.

Engineered with the collective expertise of rally drivers, smokejumpers, trail builders, overlanders and first responders, the Delta delivers failproof engineering, pro-grade materials and American ingenuity to the art of getting unstuck.

Tested to survive 1000 pounds of leveraging force, the telescoping, high-strength multi-tool features a T-grip handle that extends to 51 inches and our patented foldable, locking 3-in-1 blade for power plus precision whether breaking rock-hard ground, digging wet, heavy mud or trenching soft sand.

Ready to Go Anytime.

We know that the biggest problem with a shovel is not having one when you need it. With our custom-designed, securely lockable custom mounts, you'll always have your Delta at hand - and never in the way. Attach it to your truck rack, body panel, spare tire mount, or in a bed system or storage drawers.

Made to Be Tough

Crafted from ultra-tough 14-gauge cold-rolled steel paired with oversized stainless steel smash rivets, the Delta is bomb-proof. This result of American engineering, ultra-premium materials, and meticulous attention to detail is a must-try. This is why we offer a 30-day money-back guarantee, because we know that once you get it in hand, you'll never give it back.

Your Secret Weapon.

Having one shovel on hand is great, but why not have the versatility of multiple tools? The Delta can function as a shovel or a hoe in mud or hard pack, and with three different shaft lengths, you'll always have the right setup to give you the most leverage and digging capability.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where is this shovel made?

Our shovels are made right here in the U.S.A. They are designed in Salt Lake City, Utah and manufactured in the United States.

At a 10 to 1 fulcrum, the Delta can lift 1,000 pounds. Given that the world record RAW deadlift is 1,015 lb (460 kg), we’ve got you covered.

What makes the DMOS Delta Shovel special?

We have NOTHING against contractor shovels. Contractor shovels dig to China just fine.

The Delta shovel is designed to solve the biggest digging problem which is that sometimes you have to dig and you don’t have a normal shovel with you. That sucks. We’ve been there.

We set out to make a shovel into a tool that is always at hand and never in the way, and offers superior functionality and full-sized format when you use it. And solve it we did. We have hundreds of 5 star reviews, editorial coverage of the Delta in Survivor’s Edge, Recoil Offgrid, Esquire, and more and this shovel is a work of art.

With a milled connector, telescoping indexed locking shaft, oversized brace that attaches to the blade with twelve smash rivets, the Delta is a beast of a tool that is built to last and be handed down. The Delta Shovel is there when you need it and won’t fail you.

How do you suggest I keep my Delta with me?

You can choose from either our US-made 1,000 denier nylon everyday carry bag or our rattle-free, aircraft grade aluminum vehicle mount that fits up to any 2” bar and is compatible with nearly all roof racks and truck bed lifts. It’s a versatile, universal, locking mount.
