Does it strain your back or knees, your wrists or neck, to stoop over to clean your cat's litter box? DuraScoop has the answer for you, and it's a good one!
You can sit and scoop.
And you can do a very thorough job of it with the DuraScoop Long Handle Cat Scoop.
You can adjust the hand grip to the right or left side of the handle.
This very sturdy 28-inch scooper comes in four parts which fit together nice and tightly. Three parts make up the 4.5 x 4.5 x 2 inch shovel and two handle extensions, while the fourth part is a hand lever. When sitting, the hand lever helps to lift the weight in the shovel, correcting the balance that would otherwise be lost by having the poop weight so far away from your body. This design is very ergonomic, and if you have a lined wastebasket next to your cat's litter box, you can lift, shift, and drop all in one swoop.
Though the Long Handle Cat Scoop could be steel, like DuraScoop's other handles, but it is actually made of fiber-reinforced nylon. I know when you think of nylon you may think the material is flexible. It is not! The handle is very sturdy and comfortable to hold.
Another feature I like is how fast the scoop sifts the kitty litter back into the box. The whole process of cleaning up is made quicker by this feature. The manufacturer has place extra grooves in the shovel to make the sifting process faster.
One thing I'll mention is that if you don't have a wall or hard surface just behind your cat litter box, the box might slide backwards when you use the handle. You will need some resistance to the cat scoop, so you'll have to re-situate the cat box against an unmovable object, like a wall.
Cleaning the scooper is no problem. I use a paper towel to wipe it off, and I will probably just hose down it at the same time I clean the litter box.
I highly recommend the DuraScoop Long Handle Cat Scoop. I'm also a big fan of the Durascoop Jumbo Cat Litter Scoop and the DuraScoop Mini Steel Cat Litter Scoop. You can tell when product developers put a lot of thought into their creations.
That's the buzz for today!
