Toolmongers living in cities that shut down for a few inches of snow needn’t read further. The rest of us in the snow belt know that packing an emergency shovel in your vehicle during the winter is being prepared for the worst. Even if you don’t have much space to store a full-sized shovel, you might have room for a shovel like the Penguin collapsible emergency snow shovel.
An aluminum alloy telescoping handle allows the shovel to extend to 39″ long and collapse to a compact 17-1/2″. To handle that deceptively heavy snow, a central rib reinforces the 8-1/2″ wide by 12″ long poly blade. You’ll pay anywhere between $12 and $24 for the Penguin collapsible snow shovel.
