4-in-1 Emergency Off-Road Tool Kit
Mike Furrier, owner of Desert Rat, is a distributor for the kit which is made by the Hi-Lift Jack Company in Bloomfield, Ind. The kit includes tab lock clevis pins to secure the telescoping handle and attach full-size tool heads: pick axe, axe, sledgehammer and shovel. Everything fits in a sturdy gear bag that requires little space in a vehicle.
Many Forest Service, National Park and BLM controlled areas require these tools when traveling off-road, says Furrier, who specializes in selling items for 4-WD enthusiasts. "You can cut branches out of the way. Drive a stake in the ground to winch against. Shovel to dig out."
The sturdy implements are made of cast steel and the handle is zinc-coated. The whole kit weighs about 32 lbs.
Desert Rat sells Handle-All for $140 through their stores and on-line catalog.
