It’s wintertime, and Northern Ireland has snow – can you believe it. So for the many, that means snow shovelling time, especially if you are out in the sticks. The Alpha Shovel is the ideal tool for the job. It has a blade that’s over two feet long, a foot deep, and built from five pounds of sandblasted, clear coated T-6 aluminium. It has serrated teeth to break through ice and hard snow, slots for easy storage, a telescoping shaft, and a Nylatron D-handle that’s guaranteed to work all the way down to -60 degrees Celsius. In other words, it can handle the toughest of driveway clears, even if you live in an Alpine hut off an unpaved road. [Purchase]
