Ok, here's a picture of it...ignore the slight corruption on the stale - I didn't clean the picture up enough.

Don't buy one of these, snow good ;-)

Apparently Morrisons do these for 6 quid too, yet been in both stores several times recently and can't find any

Yes I got one of those for £6 last year from the local DIY store. Did quite a bit of shovelling of loose snow but broke in the same week. Weak spot? Where Handle meets plastic shovel.
Today I have just purchased for £20 a shovel from Costco which looks much better AND it would have to be for the price!

Been looking for snow shovels all week and cant find any (In Medway).Tried Homebase,Wickes,B&Q and a couple of independents and nothing.Will nip to Chatham store later to have a look but get the feeling my lucks out!

But a fivers not bad if it holds up.

Been looking around for one recently. £15 in homebase... wasn't sure. For £5 this is worth trying. How wrong can they get it to attach a piece of plastic to a piece of wood?

Thank you for posting the picture - worth a trip to my local Asda.

I think £5 is the normal price. I happened to be in ASDA in Dunfermline (some 7 miles from the OP's ASDA) yesterday when the tannoy announced that they have received snow shovels. "If you want one priced at £5 please queue in an orderly fashion to the right of cutonmer services desk"

Why didn't you text me then and I'd have gone and got one........please remember next time ok!!

Just been to ASDA Chatham and non there.I asked someone in Customer Services and they looked puzzled and said they hadnt had anything like that come in.I get the feeling more like the day shift had them in and they got sold out within minutes.Shame that.

Different Queensferry, this one is in North Wales (about 6 miles outside Chester) - so definitely nationwide if there is stock.

Well if you dont mind remortgaging the house,selling your first born and giving one of your kidneys you could go to one of the value snow shovels who have accordingly brought their prices to a reasonable amount due to the threat of snow....

Both items have been removed.

Just bought one from my local store in Telford, Shropshire. They have about 15 left. One box full situated near the gift wrap boxes on the second floor and the other box on the second floor by the plates/homeware section.

Ah ok,first was a normal plastic snow shovel that usually retails about £15 going for £129,and the second was a foldable snow shovel that was retailing elsewehere at £20 going for £999!!!!

Re Eb4y and prices.... I can't believe people pay over £6 for the type of shovel (this deal) on there @£15. All the local family DIY shops have them in stock locally BUT if paying £15 you might as well pay a bit more for Costco shovel = suncast.com/ima…jpg

Well you can only buy that if you are a member of Costco and want to pay for membership.

Got one of these last night from my local Homebase for 15 quids. Not the cheapest, but they look sturdy and up for the job. The advantage is if they break, I would go back and get a refund straight away and hassle-free!

ASDA are hassle free when it comes to returns I think

None in Asda kingswood Hull

Just been to homebase (Chatham) and when i asked did they have any snow shovels they had the look as though i was holding the place up!Im guessing in the SE they are now officially classified as gold dust!I wouldnt mind but its not for me,its for a neighbour of mine.Think ill wait until summer.

I've not tried it yet but I'm wondering if a big plastic storage box dragged along could be good at gathering snow up. Maybe even quicker than these smaller shovels. Plus nothing to break and most people have one lying around. One downside is you'd look a bit of a weirdo using it.

If people actually left the snow you are on about then it would be MUCH safer! The problem is people shovelling up loose snow and leaving the important part - remove the solid icey base or DON't shovel it up!
