Snow scoop is a push type of large snow shovel adapted for faster and easier removal of snow, without the need for manual lifting.

The scoop usually includes a stamped, one-piece metal / plastic body having a relatively lightweight, rigid construction which facilitates shearing of snow from the surface to be cleaned and the easy ejection of snow from the scoop.

The body is formed with an outwardly extending coplanar flange about its outer periphery that is disposed at an acute angle to the surface to be cleared. The leading edge of the scoop is formed by a short flange parallel to the bottom of the scoop which facilitates movement of the scoop over even rough or uneven surfaces and gives further rigidity to the expanse of metal.


  • Steel wear strip for added durability
  • Strong, epoxy coated steel handle
  • Ribbed construction for extra strength
