    What size? There are a few types, hand ones, ones on poles. I bought a scoop head from Latvia on ebay that was around $100. Cheaper than the high end ones. Did a video of putting a handle on it. Should have bought a carbon fiber or light strong wood. I got a fiberglass post digger handle and it's a bit heavy. 

    If I bought another I'd get one of these. Expensive but they'd last especially you want one built to take your foot pushing the scoop. They come apart for travel.

    Glad your post showed up I'll add your name to the coin book entry list.

    Yeah I watched the video yesterday....The scoop u have is just like what I want...I definitely want one with long handle, lot less bending for my back..I was thinking wood handle , but my friend gave me two fiberglass post hole digger handles he didn't need anymore...So can't beat free..And I can always change later down the road if I don't like it...We also cut about 5 -6 off my digging spade that I got from Tractor Supply last year for $20..I'm a short guy and it was so hard getting my foot on top to dig a target.. so with a little help from a big grinder , we got it done...It's gonna come in handy for sure next month at a coin shooting thing I'm going to.... 

    Thanks again for all u do

    Have a great night .

    I have been looking at two different scoops.  One is 11x8.  The other is 10x5. What size is your scoop? Also, which is better , round or hex holes. ?

    If I recall it's 11.5" long by 8.5" wide by 4.3" tall.  I'm told hex can be drilled closer together and make a stronger scoop. Here's a good guide to scoop uses:
