I got the idea of welding the hoe and the trowel together just to see how workable it would be, and was pleased at the job it did cutting and digging, and how well it worked on the trapline. I was well satisfied! After marketing my trapping videos, and the trappers saw firsthand how I used the tool, I had a lot of inquiries about it. The only problem – I was not able to get the "Yo-Ho" tools I had used in the past, as they had gone out of business. At this time, I decided to manufacture my own, making it more heavy duty to stand up to hard use. This is how the Badger™, the Sod Devil™ and the Jim Digger™ came about.

Made of 3/16" cold roll steel. The rod swivel lays flat under

easy bedding. Does not tend to pack with mud. The rod
swivel is an all-purpose swivel. I use it for my trap chain
rigs, from the baseplate, inline to shock spring, to the
double stake ring and also on my snare extension cables,
etc. The rod swivel
does require minimal spot welding
and when #6 J-Hook is also welded it is an indestructible
#6 J-Hook included.
