Ortovox Beast Review, Lorne Cameron, 03/08/2012

Great value shovel.Never had to use it in a real scenario but has been excellent in avi drills.Quick to assemble, nice long handle and much larger & stronger blade than others of the same price, which is very important for moving large amounts of snow - check your bag dimensions before buying though.Not a huge fan of the T-grip; a D-grip like Ortovox's Kodiak model is more user friendly I think.

Ortovox Beast Review, Terry Walker, 10/07/2011

Bought this as part of a deal with transceiver and probe. I have found no faults in its use at all. Easy to put together, always clips in, even when covered in snow and ice. Nice colours too.


  • Strong, I dug pits, blocks, kickers and my car out all last season, and haven't damaged it at all.
  • Shoulders on the shovel for foot stamp, this can be vital when getting through solid snow to a victim.
  • It's big too, so can therefore shift big snow fast, if your victim is 1m under then you will probably have to move 2 tonnes of snow. Hence very important.


  • Doesn't fit easily and nicely into a bag
  • Doesn't fit a probe in the handle
  • Not the lightest (but strong and large, so better in my opinion)

A great buy.
