Title: Krazy Beaver Tools Group Buy! 30%off
Post by: pinchel (Rob) on February 20, 2017, 08:11:43 AM
Ok guys and gals, Krazy Beaver Tools hasn't agreed to sponsor us, yet. Not sure if they will, but they did say they could offer us a group discount of sorts. Who is interested in one of their specialty shovels?

https://krazybeavertools.com

Most of their shovels and kits range from $80 to $130, depends on finish and mounting options.

I'll see if they can send us one to try out. In the meantime, they got back to me so here is their discount offer. It's for this specific shovel. If you aren't interested in this one, just post not interested.

12 shovels at $55.25 each, 30% discount, they ship three per box. So we'll get the best shipping if we order them as packaged.

Group Buyers:

Details on the shovel:

KRAZY BEAVER™ SUPER SHOVEL
The “Krazy Beaver Super Shovel” is an All American Made Product. 
Currently the shovel is available in one size at this time.
Measures 40 inches Total length.  Excellent for Camping, Hunting and Off-Road use.

The Head:
Manufactured using Heavy Duty 13 gauge heat treated tempered steel.  Twice as thick as  a normal residential shovel.
Reinforced teeth to prevent bending and breaking.
Powder coated both inside and out from the head to handle area to prevent rust.   
The “Krazy Beaver Super Shovel” can be used for regular digging and in extreme situations can be used to assist in penetrating Ice and Clay.
The “Krazy Beaver Super Shovel” is only available in red at this time.
Measures 11 1/2” Height X 8 1/2 wide.

The Handle: 
Made of lightweight but extremely strong fiberglass 
High Visibility Yellow
The head to handle connection has a permanently mounted solid 14” fiberglass reinforcing core to withstand breakage during the most extreme circumstances. 
At the end of the handle under the “D-Grip”, there is a hollow section that can be used for storage of emergency items such as matches, flint, hooks, fishing line, batteries, etc…

The D-Grip:
Made of solid Polymer. 
There is no soft rubber on these grips.  The reason for the use of the solid Polymer is because soft rubber overtime begins to break down and becomes sticky.

The Lock Pins:
These Tab Lock Pins are awesome!  Unlike regular PTO or quick release pins, you can actually use gloves.  The “Tab” makes it easy to attach or remove from the shovel.  In addition to being easy to use, these pins are easy to find when accidentally dropped in the sand or mud, unlike a two piece pin that has a separate pin and wire.

The mounts look like quick fists and I haven't been very impressed by them.  I'd have to see them in person, they look like sharpened home depot shovels or holes drilled in them.

Supposed to be thicker than your regular shovel, not sure about the paint benefit other than to look cool. I've watched YouTube videos of them and they seem to be perfect for rocky soil and do better at getting through the rocks than the standard because the tines. The paint doesn't last. They do make an unfinished black version but it's the same price I think.

I want the standoff mounts for the quickfists that I have.

Question is how many people and how much.

One of my most used tools at work is a shovel, there is a reason why the dont have spikes on it. As for the drilled holes thats best for muddy water.

We need hands on.

I will always be interested in anything that comes our way, but that's a lot of money for a shovel. My home depot shovel has been on two rigs and in a roll over. Still holding up like new. And its pink. I will be interested to see what price they throw at us.

I am not interested though. If I was, I would want non-teeth version. I don't like sporks for food either :)

The teeth version does look zombie capable, which is nice.

Hoping to get some more interested parties on this. I think I'll have to reach out to other Nissan groups. Seeing group buys haven't happened in a long long time on our forum it would be nice to get one going.

If anyone wants to check out the difference in this shovel, hit me up.

Hey Rob, I saw your post over on SCCX about this. I'll take the liberty of trying to rally up some interest within the group (using your post as a launching point) and let you know. Is there a deadline?

Thanks for the support! Currently no deadline, but I'd like to get back to them with one this month if possible.

Let's try and wrap this up, if we can get 10 people maybe AZXC can afford to buy 2 and raffle them off...

Alot of overlanding and upcoming events, such as GONEmoab are promoting these guys and doing raffles for these now. We still need a handful of more people to make this happen. Up till now, I've kept this in this group and and the Socal group. I will be posting in the CANVAZ thread too so that way anyone visiting can pay and pick up theirs during that event.

why not open it up to thenewx community?  Lots of people there, interested in niche thangs 

It seems like  a lot of $$ for a shovel and that design seems not built to last.  Anyone have one and or used one?  Does it have some kind of special thing that makes it work better than old fashioned ground spoon?

It's open, but I'm not posting there because the order would be shipping to us in AZ and at this point it isn't worth having to reship or figure individuals out. So keeping it simple for now, ship here pick up here.

You can check the previous posts and links for more info.
