description

Rectangular iron shovel (approx. 30 cm long) with a wooden D-handle (approx. 70-80 cm).

It is used by the stoker when filling the boiler of a heating installation or of a steam engine, and by the brickmaker when heating the oven.

It has raised edges so that the coals do not fall out when shoveling.

See also the coal scoop and coal shovel. [MOT]
