Old School

These are some of my older snow removal tools. I got them when I bought my house in 1995. I was working at a hardware store and they sold Union tools. The pusher works great for light snowfalls. The other is great for getting under and lifting packed snow. My father called that type a coal shovel.

Just replaced the blades on my Garants, original blades were blue but I don't care. I have 2 of these and need to replace blades every 5 years or so. New blades are $10. Yours looks like it's due. I'm getting older now so I went with 21" instead of the 24", easier on the back. The ergonomic handle helps too.....

I have a scoop shovel, a snow shovel and a pusher in addition to the blowers.
One thing I've decided is I prefer the bent handled units. Old back injuries make it hard to bend at time or pull starter ropes, so anything that makes it easier is appreciated.

I believe they ship south of the border, I think they even have a US distributor. If you have back problems like me you will just love the YPP21EAKD. I have one at each door.

I call that a coal shovel too.

I like all-plastic snow shovels with no metal edge. The metal edge scratches and catches and digs ruts and generally annoys me. I am intruiged by the bent handles but don't trust them enough to try one. I buy wooden handles because they don't bend at inconvenient times, such as when I'm shoveling snow. The upside of this decision process is that I tend to be able to buy the cheapest shovel on the rack!

The roof rake is just as important as a snow shovel and snow blower.

Bought a Garant (made in Canada) poly roof rake and used it for the last 5 winters. Use it on a low slope addition on the back of house and low slope one car garage.Like to use it with an 8 foot stepladder and no need to use the extra pole I bought.

Noticed a neighbor garage collapse after our local 4-6 foot snowstorm.
