How wide and long is the blade (scoop)? We placer miners need a deep blade but not too wide like the snow shovels and such. What can you tell me?
I can tell you that it's 15" deep x 10" wide. Are you looking to break it down and pack it around? If not, why not get a d-handled grain or coal scoop made out of either aluminum or steel? You can get them with blades that have about the same specs, and for shoveling gravel, it's a much better tool for the job.
