BCA A-2 Shovel with Snow Saw


Vendor: BCA

Title: BCA A-2 Shovel with Snow Saw


The Arsenal saw system includes a 29 cm snow / wood saw that is stowed inside the shovel grip. Once the saw is deployed, the shovel remains fully assembled and functional: the shaft does not have to be removed from the blade and the grip is still intact. Extendable shaft version with a larger, better digging blade.

The saw is designed to not only help make perfect snow pits but also to cut wood. The corrugated saw teeth allow for a wider cut, which decrease the friction on the saw, making the cut easier when deeper in the wood. Furthermore, the saws this year have been beefed up with a stronger and thicker metal that is still flexible at cold temps.
