Snow & Ice Removal:

Make your snow removal task easier this winter and add a telescoping shovel and telescoping vehicle snow brush to your winter supplies necessities list. They are both compact and lightweight making them a great option for you to keep in your vehicle or fish house. Perfect for personal use, a gift for a loved one or in a work vehicle.

First is the, is this telescoping car shovel

This shovel is designed to help you in every winter situation. Equipped with a sturdy aluminum telescopic handle, this shovel is space saving and easy to store in your vehicle or take a long during a winter activity. It extends up to 31.5″ H (10.75″ W × 4″ D).

Next, is telescoping vehicle snow brush

This brush won’t clog, freeze, or scratch your car! It’s head design removes snow in smaller and hard to reach areas while providing you ease of use with a telescoping handle and a pivoting head. It is made of freeze-resistant material that can withstand the harshest winters. See it in action in the video below:

Though the telescoping shovel is convenient and compact you’ll need a heavier duty shovel to really carry you through the Midwest winter.

There are two common types of larger scale snow shovels. The Snow Pusher and the traditional snow shovel.

First, is a snow pusher

The snow pusher has a plow shape blade that helps you push away both snow and slush from wide areas. At MC Tool & Safety we carry the True Temper Snow Pusher shovel. We choose to keep this in the warehouse for our customers because of it’s features and quality. The blade is made from UHMW nylon a material that is long-lasting and wear-resistant to withstand the demands of heavy snow removal you will encounter at least a few times in a winter. It’s also safe on all outdoor surfaces which enables you to clear your driveway, sidewalk, deck and patio surfaces with one tool. Gain more leverage with the versa grip- an ergonomically designed grip that accommodates multiple hand positions for pushing, scooping and unloading piles of snow. Hands are also secured with the anti-slip grip provided by the TPE resin-covered steel handle.

Second, is the traditional snow shovel

This shovel features a square bucket type blade. The True Temper Snow Shovel carried in our warehouse features a 18″ polycarbonate blade. This blade material makes it 45% more wear-resistant (versus HDPE, Polypropylene blades). This blade will remove snow from all surfaces like your deck, asphalt driveway and concrete sidewalks. You’ll find you’ll be able to wear gloves comfortably while using this shovel, it features an oversized D-Grip adding leverage. This shovel is designed with a steel handle covered by TPE, a resin which provides an anti-slip grip. All around this is a great choice to add to your must have winter supplies list.

Let there be light! If you live in the Midwest you know all too well that we have some early and very dark winter evenings. Our winter darkness makes seeing very difficult thus making lighting part of your essential winter supplies list. Give yourself light and see what you’re working on. We want to help you avoid falling or injury from a tool solely because you lacked light and couldn’t see. Portable lights are great for the early or late hours on a jobsite. Additionally, portable lighting might be useful garage work, yard projects or even a backyard hockey rink or ice fishing. We make it simple, tell us what your task is and we’ll find a solution that best fits your needs. Some of the many styles and options we have for you are:
