Both aluminum and plastic scoop are lightweight and corrosion resistant for longevity use. They are a versatile tool for multiple purposes such as general clean-up or moving grain, stone, snow or even ice.
Aluminum blades are stronger and more durable, allowing them to easily scrape packed-on snow or ice. It will be able to carry more materials but can also be quite a bit heavier. Normally aluminum scoop will be more expensive than a poly one.
Scoop blades made of plastic are flexible and allow the snow to slide off more readily. ABS poly provides strength and rigidity, even in cold temperatures. But a poly blade is not a good choice for chipping away the ice.
Grain scoop is a versatile, general-purpose, year-round tool. It is well suited for a variety of lawn and farm uses as well as farm and agricultural ones. It is primarily used to lift and transfer a variety of materials, including grain, stone, soil, and even snow. The lightweight scoop is perfect for moving and scooping grain, seed, feed, fertilizers, and other granulated materials.
