Flat Shovel


The Flat Shovel Head is a sturdy formed and tempered steel shovel blade, suited for shaping, clearing drains and moving dirt. The size 2 flat blade is smaller than a full-size shovel but with better packability. The shovel blade is securely mounted to a unique Trail Boss coupling, designed to transfer the higher bending forces induced by typical digging activity into the handle and away from the coupling connection.


The 6.5” wide blade, forged and tempered in the US makes this flat shovel work like a full-size shovel while still being packable. The blade is mounted to an anodized aluminum Trail Boss shovel adapter using stainless steel bolts. The unique brace and handle clamp/pin design transfers the bending forces to the handle, but as with all Trail Boss heads, attaching and removing the shovel does not require tools.
