The sackmaster (aka the sacmaster) by inventor Mark Martinez  is a shovel for making sandbags. The sackmaster is sure to reduce the amount of time it takes to fill a sandbag. This sandbag shovel could make a huge difference when the waters are rising. Sackmaster, a much faster way make a sandbag.

On the show Mark Martinez, “the sackmeister” got some negative feedback for not using his $50,000 wisely. However, it appears there was good reason for his choices which weren’t obvious on the show. Perhaps his true character is better reflected in the fact that since the end of the American Inventor show Mark has traveled around the U.S. donating his invention where it is needed.
