SHOVEL FEATURES

Listed below are some quick facts and features.  For full, detailed specifications and descriptive photos, please scroll down

TRUE BEND-FREE, BACK SAVER DESIGN
All ages, all heights. Our innovative "S" shaped shaft ensures that nobody bends.  The scoop contacts the surface while standing upright.  "Longer" version is recommended for users about 6' and above and  "smaller" version for users about  5' 11" and below.  Longer version measures 66" long, and smaller version measure 60" long.

SPACE SAVING FEATURE
Handle and blade turns 90° which enables the shovel to store nearly flat. Transforms from “use” to “storage” position in seconds. Simply pull the detent pins from the handle and blade, rotate them, and reinsert the pins for storage. Stops at pre-determined position, so there's no guessing. Stores in a fraction of the space of similar bent angle shovels.

ERGONOMIC WRIST BENEFITS

Rotate the grip to shovel in the “underhand / overhand” or “handshake / sideways” position for ergonomic wrist benefits.

COMMERCIAL GRADE MATERIALS
All metal construction.  Heavy gauge aluminum scoop and power coated steel handle and shaft. Its strength, versatility and ease of use will provide years of performance. 

ALL LOOSE MATERIALS
Dirt, mulch, snow, sand, leaves, grain, feed, debris, etc.  15" wide X 19" deep scoop provides maximum material transfer in minimal time. Homeowners, landscapers, ground maintenance, farmers, etc. 

STYLISH COLORS
Shaft is offered in two vibrant colors (red & yellow) for high visibility in the yard or snow.

OTHER SHOVELS

MIGHTY ERGO SHOVEL

SCOOP MATERIAL

PP (Polypropylene Plastic) The same plastic used to make bags, carpeting, packaging, food containers, etc. Inexpensive and lightweight.  Blade and socket can crack and wear down quickly.

Premium 6063 Grade Aluminum. Alloyed with Magnesium & Silicon offering superior strength and corrosion resistance.

HANDLE/GRIP

Typically PP plastic secured in a stationary position.

Powder coated steel with solid wood grip.  The 90 degree rotation of the grip allows the user to shovel in the horizontal (underhand) or vertical (handshake) position for ergonomic wrist benefits.  Also allows MES to be stored nearly flat.

SHAFT

PP plastic, aluminum or steel. Straight shaft or bent angle shaft which is not long enough, forcing the user to considerably bend over to use. Increases effort, fatigue and risk of injury.

Rust resistant, powder coat painted steel. 2 stylish colors (Scarlet Red & Canary Yellow) for high visibility in the yard and snow. Proper angle and length (66") allowing users of all heights to use without bending over.

BLADE & HANDLE CONNECTIONS

Often only one screw or rivet to secure the handle/grip and blade to the shaft.  Can fail over time causing the blade to wobble or fall off. 

Double reinforced installed through the diameter to strongly secure the handle and scoop to the shaft using detent pins and bolts. The quick release detent pins allow the handle and blade to rotate 90 degrees depending on “use” or “storage” position. 

LENGTH OF ENTIRE SHOVEL

53”. User required to bend.  Blade does not contact the ground when standing in an upright position for users of any height.

LONGER VERSION:  66” from top to bottom. Scoop contacts the surface for users about 6' and above while standing  upright.  SMALLER VERSION:  Measures 60" and recommended for users about 5' 11" and below.   

GRADE

Residential Grade

Commercial Grade

SCOOP SIZE

Typically 18" - 21” wide X 14" deep.  Generally limited to use for snow only.  

#12 scoop type blade, measures 15” wide X 19” deep.  Use for a variety of loose materials (snow, mulch, dirt, feed, leaves,  grain, debris, etc.)

WEIGHT

3.5 - 5 lbs. for ultra-lightweight economy shovels.
5 - 9 lbs. for manual "plows" and “pushers”.

5.5 lbs.  Balanced weight distribution requiring less effort to push and/or lift loose materials.

STORAGE

Bent angle shaft shovels awkward to store, as the curved shaft bends away from the wall.

Stores nearly flat after rotating the handle and blade 90 degrees. Simply pull out the detent pins, rotate to the pre-set position and re-insert the pin to lock the handle and blade in place. 

VALUE

Weak, economy shovels sometimes fail after one season, or even one use.

Designed to last many uses and many years.

EFFORT

Users of all heights still must bend over.

Users of any height requires no bending whatsoever.
