    What do you like for shovels? Plastic or metal edge? Scoop or flat blade?

    i'm particular to the snow shovel in my sig. Metal edge with flat blade. The handle is very versatile too. Allows you to adjust your hand/wrist positions to help reduce fatigue and repetitive motion injuries. Since the handle is oversized, it hurts less when you're pushing with your stomach and get caught on an edge.

    Do a quick search on this topic, there was a recent thread that was pretty extensive, reagarding shovels, no need to rehash this all over.

    Good Luck

    Do a search for the word Melnor. These are the best shovel money can buy. They are basically a snow blower - without a motor.

    LOL. Holy COW! I don't know WHERE that came from! We pay about that for the case of them! They are usually around $16 apiece for the nice wide ones.
