Found 14th Dec 2010Made hot 14th Dec 2010
Wilko Square point shovel with wooden handle - useful for compacted snow and ice. £6.98 delivered to your local Wilkinsons.

These have been out of stock for a while and I've been looking for a cheap shovel (already have a snow one but its not much use with ice).

These were £6.48 but they've now they've got stock its been raised it to £6.98 but still the cheapest I can find. Argos is probably next cheapest at £10 but there is no stock, B&Q, Screwfix, Wickes and Toolstation all more expensive.

The cheapest one in stock in Wickes is £18
The cheapest one in stock in Screwfix is £15
The cheapest one in stock in Toolstation is £20
None instock in Focus
Argos do one for £10 but this is likely to be out of stock....it is at the ones nearest to me.

If you want a plastic one - B&Q have a collapsible one for £11

Go help yourself from the yellow grit bin down the street if there is one. As long as it goes on the road or the pavement then it's been used ligitimately

Last time there was a snow shovel deal on here for Wilkinsons all 3 I visited hadn't a clue about it.

This is a MYTH which started being spread last year

It just absorbs the water in the snow, and doesn't provide any grip on the slippery surface, it also isn't dissolved in the water so does not alter the melting point, and doesn't cause melting (unlike salt)

It does however work well in a cat litter tray

You can order online and collect from the store.

there is more snow coming? when?

Thanks! =]

Thanks, got a plastic snow shovel from B&Q last week for £6 but this will be much better for ice. Should be delivered to the new local Wilko's store by Saturday just in time for the next snow forecast.

This is just an ordinary shovel, not to be confused with a long handles snow shovel.

No, when it's freezing it wont absorb any water will it. It's great for keeping in the boot to give grip if you ever get stuck.

Its not a snow shovel though,just a standard one that plenty of places have for around this price such as wickes.Now if you were able to order and collect a proper snow shovel somewhere id happily vote hot.

I got a mega one from the Tickhill store of tornevalley.com last week. They had just had 500 delivered and to give you an idea about the quality, they had 1.75" shafts. Cost was £12.95 and not like the cheapo ones I've seen before.

The cheapest one in stock in Wickes is £18
The cheapest one in stock in Screwfix is £15
The cheapest one in stock in Toolstation is £20

Argos do one for £10 but this is likely to be out of stock....it is at the ones nearest to me.

I'll elaborate on my post for the intellectually lacking.

If you require something to make the area around your home safer and cannot or do not wish to buy 50lb bags of grit then supermarket dishwasher salt works very well, currently about 90p for a 2kg bag in Morrisons and £1.40 for 3kg in Tesco, I've found its large granules superior to that of table salt in preventing snow settling and thawing snow / ice.
