I've got a shovel combo that looks exactly the same, other than mine's got yellow shafts. Basically, it's not a bad product.

Cheers

I don't think the price is over the top considering it is made in australia

Price is the last thing that concerns me if the quality is good & it does the job as i hate buying cheap crap that doesn't

There's about 20 bucks worth of steel to make it is what I think he is getting at. Maybe less. Good idea though but maybe buy a cheap bunnings stick welder and get some scrap steel and knock one up yourself. You'll end up with a welder and the shovel holder and would have spent half as much.

I reckon by the time i got all the stuff i needed (steel,chain,lock,strap,paint,etc) i wouldn't be saving much and that is not counting the time it takes to make it

If i can buy something for $200 that bolts on and is well made i wouldn't bother trying to make it myself
