Winter is Coming
The wise words of Ned Stark in Game Of Thrones has transcended its origins and now signals harsher times ahead. Winter's arrival brings a unique set of challenges, specifically for farmers, as they must adapt their practices to ensure the survival and productivity of their crops and livestock in the harsh, frigid months ahead. Here at MTN SHOP, we provide farmers with the tools and accessories to maintain their operations even throughout the winter months.
Our range of farming tools and accessories are the unsung heroes that make the cold season a time of opportunity rather than despair!
Roughneck Grain Shovel
Digging with precision is an essential practice in farming industries. Strong, yet lightweight, the Roughneck Grain Shovel is one of our favourites for moving various bulk materials. The scoop on this shovel is deep and able to hold large volumes of loose materials while its high lift blade offers improved leverage and promises to reduce bending when lifting materials. The Roughneck Grain Shovel features a tubular fibreglass shaft and a soft, D-shaped handle to increase comfortability, especially in the cold winter months. This shovel features a corrosion-resistant aluminium head with reinforcing ribs, meaning it can be sterilised easily for use with grain and feed.
The Bulldog Insulated Chisel End Crowbar can be your companion for breaking up ice this winter! The head of this crowbar has been tempered for strength and rigidity, while its one piece, heavy-duty, epoxy paint coated fibreglass handle, provides optimum protection against any corrosive substances.
