Ames Snow shovels! Can you help me locate them...?

    I'm looking for the Ames Snow Blazer snow pusher. They come in varying widths - 24" and/or 30/36" wide. They used to be a royal blue color, but a couple years ago it went to a teal green. Wood handle with plastic D handle and plastic scoop. No separate cutting edge like on some of the older Ames Stinger shovels.

    I can't locate these particular pushers but want to find in the worst way. If anyone knows where I can buy some I'd appreciate it. I'm wearing through the last of stock this year. I'm particularly looking for the 30/36" wide pushers.

    Check out www.doitbest.com . They have a lot of Ames snow shovels and they do have the 24" version of the Snowblazer. I didn't see the others, but it might be worth a call. I have had good luck dealing with them in the past.

    snow shovels...

    my aunt recently moved from Syracuse,NY to Charlotte,NC,this winter they had a couple good snowfalls and were not ready for them,she told me the other day that she was the only person in her neighborhood that owned a snow shovel,
    she ended up putting it on the porch for everyone to use laughing the whole time about everyone wanting to borrow her "yankee shovel" lol

    Thanks Steve - I found the 24" pusher, so at the least I can get that. I'm going to look deeper to find the larger shovel. Thanks again!

    If you fing anything larger, let us know. The biggest I have found around here is 24". Sure would be nice to have something bigger for those light storms.:waving:

    I guess a good question to ask as well is what have others found to be the most efficient "stick plow" to use? Personally I like snow pushers - shovels with a deep scoop take too long and are too tiring to operate for long periods of time. Anyone else find a style or brand shovel/pusher that has worked for them?

    If I find the 30" pushers we have or larger, I'll post the information here.

    As a follow up to this thread I recently received the Ames tool catalog. The 30" poly snow pusher is in their product line called SnoZone... it looks like they've changed the name from Snow Blazer.

    Item #'s:
    11" x 24" wood handle, 56" overall length: #1601900
    11" x 30" wood handle, 58 1/2" over length: #1601600

    LawnLad, I never did see any pushers on the west side. Sorry I didn't reply that, however, I have befriended a guy who works for a local true value, so bring it back up when the weather starts to get cold. I might be able to get you first dibs. Also, (this is off topic) how far west do you guys go with plowing and landscaping?
