    Tired of broken junk shovels every time we go out.

    i would like something with a straight handle that is sturdy, not garbage, metal edge, around 24 inches wide.

    whats out there that you have found works good.

    we used to have black shovels with a yellow handle and a black d handle on the end but i cant seem to find them any where.

    Not sure of the brand but I picked up a snow shovel at deere landscapes. It doesn't have a metal edge but I love how it rolls the snow off like a plow. It works great and has held up well for me so far. It has a d handle, wooden handle shaft and is probably the same size shovel end as the others on here. It has a orange shovel and handle. I paid like $24 for it. I'm 6'2" and even though it is a straight shaft I don't have to bend over to use it. The only down fall is it isn't good for scooping has to much roll the snow just slides off. I'm not sure how well it would do to scrap ice. I stay on top of my sidewalks so they don't get iced over. It also has a six year warranty what that is worth to anyone.

    We have a mixed selection of shovels, but have recently added thesnowplow.com shovels and find they hold up better than all the others. When guys are shoveling 1-3" snows for hours on end, we need something that won't wear out every 3rd snow.

    Checked on the brand of the shovel I posted about and it is made by bigfoot.

    I have a 30" 'the snow plow' pusher (www.thesnowplow.com). It is an excellent shovel. I would like to pick up a 24" for heavier snows.

    Snowplow shovel absolutely! I got one that is the same width as the sidewalks I do at my house and for my neighbors. One push and I'm done! Even broke up the packed stuff from the driveway.

    all i really meant was we generally use them on light snows and stuff that isnt to heavy

    its just to big to try and shovel a ten inch wet snow
