Works about like a shingle shovel with the bonus of being able to get those nails that bend without changing where you stand. Ya just catch em on the pull stroke.Never used one, wonder how they work? Used shingle shovels and home-made shingle shovels most of the time.
Ok, I was wondering. I see Box elder burl is a common import to Russia. Wonder if that is it. Russia has lots of Birches and Fir trees, but don't recall any maples...The wood was purchased from a Russian vendor, and it's Maple, so I assume it's Russian Maple BTW, it took almost 4 months to get here.
