New-Style Scoop Shovels
This scoop shovel and scoop fork were originally designed for sifting through livestock bedding when cleaning barns but they have many other uses as well.
  Thunderbolt's "sifter shovel" is made out of aluminum and weighs only 2 lbs. The same size as a regular scoop shovel, it features a scoop made of 3/4-in. diamond-shaped expanded metal that allows you to "sift" material. It's fitted with a steel cutting edge for longer wear.
  Available with 36 or 42 in. handle. Sells for $24.95 plus $3.95 S&H.

  Farnam Companies' "Wonder Fork" features a 6-in. deep by 15-in. wide basket. The front is fitted with 8 1/2-in. long Lexan tines spaced 6 1/2-in. apart that allow bedding and manure to drop through simply by tapping the fork a couple of times. Has a 54-in. coated hardwood handle.
