    For the past few years I have operated a small business where I take all of the walks off of contractor's hands for them, and then hire high school and college age kids to do the shoveling. It works great when you have a lot of guys working for you at once. The one thing that always adds up is the cost of snow shovels. I am tired of buying these cheap shovels that the cutting edge wears down in one snow storm. Anybody ever heard of a snow shovel with a replaceable wear strip/cutting edge? Also any suggestions would be nice for good shovels.

    I do what you do. Get a bunch of the Snowplow brand shovels. I got some this year and they are amazing. We flipped them over to scrape ice and even chopped with them. I also have a few of the YO-HO brand 36" plastic and a 24" metal. The plastic did pretty good but I'm already replacing bolts after only 1 use (same conditions with a ton of ice).

    Do a search on here, there are a ton of posts about the snowplow shovel. Also check out youtube for their videos.

    Definitely Snow Plow brand I have a 30" and a dominator and love them. And you can buy just the blade of the shovel and reuse the handle with multiple sizes if you want.

    The Snow Plow Shovel is by far the best shovel I have ever used hands down. They have a wedsite where you can buy replacement blades.
