The Do-It-All Tool

The MAX® Multipurpose ToolKit is the does-it-all tool for you. Unlike other bulky tool kits that take up valuable space, this tool comes with eight commonly used tools all in one lightweight, easy-to-carry, and stow case.  

What’s Included:

  • 34” Composite Polyglass Handle
  • 3.5-lb Hudson Bay Ax Head with Striking Surface
  • Shovel
  • Pick
  • Broad Pick
  • Mattock Blade
  • Combination McLeod
  • Rake and Hoe Rake-Hoe Fastener
  • 6 Lock Pins
  • Embossed Leather Ax Sheath
  • Cordura® Carrying Case

MAX® Ax Head

The MAX® Ax is great for splitting firewood for a wood stove, campfire, or relaxing fireplace at home. You can also use it to fell trees for wood, or buck logs and trees that have fallen on the trail or path that you’re following. The handle of the ax is made out of composite polyglass, making it light and easy to get the job done.

Striking Surface

The MAX® Hudson Bay ax head has a striking surface that is opposite of the ax blade. This works in a pinch as a hammer if you need to mend fences or other structures on the ranch. It is also perfect for driving tent stakes, anchors, spikes, or anything else you need to secure to the ground. 

Broad Pick 

The MAX® broad pick is ideal for tearing through tough, wet soil such as clay or silt that won’t loosen up the way rocky or dry soil will. It’s great for narrow trench work if you need to lay wire or conduit. It also works great as a pry-bar to lever heavy objects that need to be moved, whether you need to pull some boards from a fence or building, or you are trying to shift boulders or large logs to other locations. The MAX® broad pick is one of those tools that is handy in any situation you put it in.


The MAX® pick is an excellent tool for busting up rocky soil before moving it or breaking up stuck-together material such as feed, hay, or ice, for spreading. If you want to loosen up some stubborn ground before planting, this is your tool!


The mattock, when attached, turns the MAX® into a Pulaski, which is a primary tool for fire control efforts. The mattock attachment cuts through roots and soil like butter and is great for digging out a trench quickly or removing tree stumps and roots around your property.


The MAX® shovel is a key element in the kit. With a full-size shovel blade, it makes recovery efforts a breeze. You can use it to dig your vehicle out when it high-centers, gets stuck, or to dig a quick latrine if you catch yourself in a bind. At 34 inches, it’s not quite a full-length shovel, but it’s longer than most camp shovels. The shovel, combined with the polyglass ax handle provides an ergonomic grip that’s shaped to be strong wherever you’re applying force.

Rake and Hoe (McLeod)

The McCleod rake and hoe attachment is the perfect combo tool! Its primary purpose in fire control is to cut fire breaks in the land to prevent/manage the ability of wildfire to spread. It’s also great for campsite preparation. You can use the rake side to collect kindling and clear brush, then turn it around to level space for the tent, firepit, and camp furniture.
