But for day to day in the truck I don't carry a shovel
I carry a Pick mattock.............a sharp pointy end for rocky ground, prying rocks and a 5" wide flat end for moving material.
If you've ever tried pulling sand out from under a truck with a shovel you'll realise its almost useless.
The mattock works great. only issue is the weight-----------given a choice
The pick mattock goes with me and the lonley shovel stay's at home..
Both tools have fiberglass shafts with an abs covering for long life
