Axe To Grind...

Hey fellas.

I'm wondering if anyone knows where to get a good AXE & FIRE EXTINGUISHER for the D-90. Is there any online vendors that sell a 'mount' for either ? How do you guys mount them ?

Is there perhaps a special 'camel trophy' mount somewhere ?

I looked at the Safety Devices fire extinguisher but I don't know of others of high quality and kind of 'made' for a moving vehicle ... and I'm not to 'versed' on the axe.

Thanks

Nicholas Orros

I'm not sure who has the Camel Trophy stuff but I have a military spec fire extinguisher in my truck. The mount is bolted just below the passenger seat on the seat bench and it is very sturdy. It's never moved while off roading. Try www.pablanchard.co.uk. They have some Trophy stuff as well.

Thanks fella's... I think I can come up with a mount, but where I find a decent (not too big) axe ?

As far as the fire extinguisher goes, I like the Safety Devices line, especially the silver one (attached a pic)...

Thanks again, I've been kind of out of it lately and haven't been on the site as much as I normally am, but it's nice to know that when I need a shove in the right direction you guys are always helpful.

Search for Max Ax. It's been rated a top tool by firefighters, comes with several attachments including pick ax, shovel, etc. Fiberglass handle. Not pretty but really hefty and damn functional. Mine is mounted on the floor under the second row seat right next to my hi lift.

With a fire extinguisher like that I am sure the fire would simply put itself out as a sign of respect There is a $9 one at home Depot. Even comes with a nifty holder.

I carry the Estwing 26" campers axe. Not too heavy, metal handle, can chop just about anything. You can find it at any "Home Improvement" warehouse.
