This number is one that surprised me. I personally wasn’t expecting this to end up weighing as much as it did. On the other hand, in the design
I made the pole solid instead of hollow, if I were to proceed with the design process I would have to make the pole hollow to reduce the weight.
Along with hollowing the pole to reduce the weight, I would also change the thickness of the walls on the shovel head.
They added a lot of weight on their own due to
After Shelling Pole + Shovelhead to 1/8in.
After shelling the pole but changing nothing about the grooming head I shaved 8.27 lbs. off of the overall weight of the assembly.
After shelling the pole as well as the shovel head I noticed a massive difference in overall weight. It went from 31.95 lbs. to 11.12 lbs.
This was a total loss of 20.83 lbs. shed off of the original weight.
