About

We wanted to create a dependable tool for dealing with the unexpected conditions that people encounter on their adventures.

The MMTH GEAR™ TUSK combines an impact resistant, lightweight chassis with a core set of features including a snow shovel, retractable steel digging spade, extra wide scraper sheath, durable elastomer wipers and enhanced usability with our POWERGRIP™ handle platform.

On a cold icy morning the idea for TUSK was born from frustration of using a bad ice-scraper to clear a car window and wondering why these types of products are so bad. The idea for the TUSK evolved quickly and we wanted to build it into the meanest ice scraper out there and we decided to build in extra functionality to cope with other scenarios. The unit became a multi-function survival adventure shovel comprising of the ice scraper tip, shovel bucket, retractable steel spade, rubber wipers and buffers and dual handle ergonomic design for maximum usability.

  • Designed for car adventures, useful in so many other ways.
  • Deal with Winter and Summer dig-outs in a pinch.
  • Retractable spade for extreme digging and cutting.
  • Wipers to clean your windows to go that extra mile.
  • A sleek body shape to make getting under the car body actually possible, unlike other shovels.
  • Compact enough to bring anywhere.

Take the TUSK for a spin below, check it out in 3D

 Clear your car in seconds.

The soft elastomer squeegee wings protect your car body and allow you to easily remove large amount of snow. 

 The dual handed economics allow you to use the Tusk as a snow plow for your car.

                 

 Unlike other snow shovels the TUSK includes several functions and bundles all these tools into one. 

Rugged construction means you can bring the Tusk anywhere.  

The retractable metal spade digs dirt with ease.  

                 
                 

We have built the Tusk from premium performance materials. These materials have been proven to perform in countless other applications. PA6 is from the nylon family and is used in machine parts and outdoor equipment. Stainless steel or the upgraded Titanium spade are of course excellent tool materials, hard wearing and super tough. The polycarbonate for the ice scraper is the same material used in bullet proof windows and has extreme hardness to reduce wear and tear to a minimum.

 We have spent the last 18 months working on this project from the idea to make a better ice scraper to the project evolving into a fully fledged winter tool, design, prototyping, testing in Iceland and at home, material selection and refinement down to final design and accessory development.

Risks and challenges

We have been designing and developing new products for the last 5 years. Our team has a wide range of skills - from Design, Manufacturing, Quality Control and Logistics.

This is what we do full time.

We were diligent and made sure that this tool is the best it can be and has been tested thoroughly for the last year. It has been tried in sub zero temperatures in Iceland and has met and exceeded our high standards. We have hacked Ice, shovelled snow and even drove over this product all without fail.

Our manufacturing partners have already been working on this project with us to make sure that it has been optimised for production and they are standing by waiting to kick off the tooling needed for production.

We do not see any potential risks and any unknowns have been accounted for by allowing extra time between stages to allow us trouble shoot any unforeseen problems. With your help we can make this product a reality.

Thanks for your support - Alan, Ben & Mick
