This dustpan will sweep you off your feet. Forget those wimpy plastic jobs - if this had a longer handle, it would qualify as a shovel. It is enameled steel, 17" wide x 10" deep, with a slight retaining lip 3/4" in from the front edge. The handle is an 8" tubular loop, shaped to let you get a good grip on it with it's bright orange no-slip grip coating. It's industrial equipment, but perfect for your basement or garage, or for cleaning up after your St. Bernard.
