    How many sqaure feet of sidewalk can 1 laborer shovel in 1 hour? No snowblowers just a shovel. Would like to know some of your thoughts on this.

    At what snow depth? Plus I think your answer is going to depend a lot upon what type of snow a person in shoveling. I know I can move a lot of snow when it's the light and fluffy stuff but I get worn out quick when it's the wet and heavy crap.

    I too would be curious to the "norm" (if there was one!)
    say 2"-4" heavy snow with a blue shovel
