Crovel in Gear Reviews and Preps Posted October 16, 2012 · Report reply I have been talking to the makers of the crovel and have told them my problems with there product. It turns out that they have come out with a new model and the head on this model is made of 4140 chromoly steal, so I am guessing that they have had a lot of complaints about this rust problem. They assured me several times that my findings are not the normal, and they are actually going to exchange mine for this new model. So at least this company is fixing there problems and also they are willing to compensate for there problems. if you have a crovel with the same problems I would urge you to contact them about it because they will do what they can to make you happy.
