We always carry a long handled shovel and axe when going offroad but where to put them (particularly the shovel)??? Used to carry on the roof rack but these days towing a camper trailer, we only have the roof rack on the vehicle for extended trips so a the roof rack option is out.

Can carry in/on the trailer OK but need them with us when away from camp.

Kaymar have a combination Hi-lift jack & shovel or axe carrier off the spare wheel. We don't carry a Hi-lift jack so ideally what we want is a combination shovel & axe carrier, but Kaymar don't make them.

Anyone know if someone is making such a thing or do we have to go to a metal fabricator and get one made up?

thankyou Melissa for your thoughts on DPS i went to tjm products today in Adelaide and I can get a dbe150smk2 set up for $810.00 or I can buy the system, do it your self for $437.00 plus Yassa d\c battery for $160.00 and get my Auto electrician to fit it for me as I have to move my after market cruise control to some where else in vehicle so that the washer bottle will fit in its place plus I checked with arb and their system will cost me a total of $851.00 by the way the $1100.00 set up was for the rotronics rdc12m from Oppiste lock so thankyou everyone for getting back to me cheers Robroy.

Hi Steve,

Don't carry a mattock, no need for one. See comments in my original post regarding trailer.

I don't know if this helps you or not, but I have a swing-out tyre carrier on the back of my FJ62 LandCruiser, and I've designed a carrier for a high-lift jack and shovel which is welded onto the inside. This works quite well and doesn't take up any real space, as the gap between the rear door and the tyre carrier is useless space anyway. You might want to do the same sort of thing. If you want, I can send you photos of my setup and you can see if you want to pursue the same sort of thing. My email address is root@plexus-technologies.com

I have one that attaches to the swing out wheel carrier. From memory I bought it from ARB. I think the cost was around $175.

I use elastic straps through the spare wheel to attach the shovel. Nice and simple. Don't take an axe - just a bowsaw carried inside the vehicle.
