Shovel . . wood or metal?

Post by mutt and jeff » August 26th, 2020, 9:42 am

Newbie MUTT owner. 1966 A1. Has wooden handle shovel and ax on it now, but PO was not the most factory class type of owner. I see all metal shovels for sale for the 151, but don't know if it's a early/late thing or A1 vs. A2 thing or if wood was never an acceptable shovel. Which should I mount on my A1? From what I have read, anything outdoors was painted OD green, so not treated wood even if that is the correct tool.

Thanks in advance.

Wooden handles for shovel and axe. Metal handles were not used.
