seems like a good deal for under $10

scarpozzi 04-22-2013 05:47 AM

Awesome! I've been needing one of these (also known as grain shovels or transfer shovels) to move mulch. My square point shovel is ok, but too small to be efficient.

The reason I didn't buy them is because they're $22-25 everywhere. (Northern Tool, Sears, Lowes, HD, etc) Thanks and Repped.

If you're moving a lot of compost, consider getting a pitchfork also; the long-handled frankenstein-kind waved around with torches. Complements this shovel.

I like my union tools aluminum shovel. It has lasted 10 years at least. wonder how long this plastic one will last?
I guess it doesn't matter...fast track to the FRONT PAGE!

Hefner413 04-22-2013 06:32 AM

I've already broken one plastic scoop shovel. Plastic breaks / snaps / cracks. I'll prob look into an aluminum one too...

I’ve owned both the plastic and aluminum scoop shovels. The plastic one wears on the edge/surfaces that contacts the stuff being scooped and/or ground and lasted about 12 years. The aluminum one would bend and crease about in the middle of the scoop (where the handle mount ended on the back of the scoop) and eventually snapped in two, lasting about 3 years. These were used around my home to scoop mulch, lava rock and snow. I would buy the plastic one again and would not buy or recommend the aluminum one per my use.

I can't remember if I have one at home or not. I know I have one in one of my storage buildings, but it could be anywhere. I had 30 pine trees cut over the winter and the stumps ground....so I have about 2 truckbed loads of pine mulch that I'm going to move to an ATV/walking trail. I may try loading it with a bobcat, but will need this to make unloading easier.

Repped for the detailed review

FWIW I've had both a plastic one and metal one for scooping mulch. The plastic one did eventually break after about five solid years of use. The metal one I replaced it with curled up at the edge when I hit seams in the concrete. I prefer the plastic one.

signalsoldier 04-22-2013 08:17 AM

This came right on time....needed one for a single job. This will do me well. repped

rustum 04-22-2013 08:21 AM

Got one with store pickup. Used my rewards points.

deetz 04-22-2013 08:27 AM

Anyone use this for snow? Any good for that? I don't have a huge drive way or anything. Just for a quick cleanup.

cab4656 04-22-2013 08:56 AM

Thanks OP. In for one. I used points that I had received for free, and I had an email offer from a few days ago to redeem points and get those points credited back to my account, so I think this was a MM. Needed one of these anyway; only drawback is having to do store pickup.

christillman 04-22-2013 08:57 AM

Thanks, this come in handy to pick up after my wife.

ballershanelle 04-22-2013 08:58 AM

But, if a snake comes slithering out, the metal edge does justice with a few, hard downstrokes. Plastic shovel is not long lasting, if you need to shovel rock, dirt, etc.,... Country living is different than the burbs.

Its a great car accessory for a snow digout or dry mulch.

This looks exactly like the 2 which I've been using for snow the past couple years. The ones I have are tough SOBs, very sturdy and feel solid. I do not take care of them at all but they still feel as solid as the first time I used them.

Ryan_C 04-22-2013 09:02 AM

in for 1.
$10.70 after tax with pick up.

Contact Sear's corporate [sears.com] and complain about the issue with a store. I'm sure they'll look into it and perhaps make up with some store credit.

Perfect for general clean up, moving soil, mulch or snow

Not perfect for mulch. Use a pitchfork for that.

jlongo527 04-22-2013 02:50 PM

Looks pretty good for shovel sledding. Redneck style. I have nothing worthwhile to add other than that.

I have used a similar plastic shovel for wood chips off pavement. Perfect tool for that

For future reference, daily deals prices are only good for a day and while supplies last. It's bound to return on sale as in the past but this was the cheapest. Either check Sears nightly at 12am CDT and/or add Sears or poly scoop to your deal alerts.
