yes.... i have enquired about a shovel holder for the spare wheel holder. It was a bit pricey though. I think it was almost $100. I cound'nt part with that money just to hold the shovel outta the car. Give Tuff Stuff a call. (Adelaide).............

At Aussie Disposals they have the a German (I think) spade and pick. It has a square shaft that slides back to unfold the spade or pick. Comes in a genuine leather pouch and is a tough well made compact unit. Often they have had them on special for $25.95. I just recently purchased a new one, and I don't think this one had been used. Only compact tough spade I have ever found. I have used these for prospecting for more years than I care to remember. Only reason I purchased another one, is I bought it to leave in my new 4WD. I also take one with me on my off-road motorbike as part of my prospecting kit.

I have a piece of duralamin (high tensile aluminium) that slips over part of the handle, and locate it with a large 'E' pin/clip. Works like magic.

Thanks for repling.....I have one of those heavy duty spades also...good value.

The $100 price tag is a little high also just to carry a shovel will have look at storing it soewhere else.
