Just thought I would share what kind of shovels I use. www.thesnowplow.com These are the best shovels I have found. Light and sturdy. I have the original one I purchased 4 years ago and still use it regularly. Never had to replace one yet. I mainly use the 36" and 24". Great shovels. Get your hands on one if you can. You won't regret it. Well worth the money. I used to use the orange plastic ones. Problem was I had to replace them monthly. Not these.
