    Got this , unit used but new to us stove.that does not have an ashpan... It is the Hitzer sideloader....
    I asked yall about it while back...
    It has this small "ledge" catches some ash.. Very narrow... a pain to clean.....
    So I figured a nice heavy duty small kiddy---sand shovel... but course steel ,etc to get that ash, embers,etc, etc...
    Oh and thanks Hitzer... for nothing ... not being able to get us an owners manual.... Shame on them..
    Thanks YALL.
    keep safe and warm.....

    How about this one - $4.00 at Home Depot. I have one for my stove. It's 5" wide at the shovel end and 20" long. All steel and works great.

    There are lots of options. I use a metal dustpan I found at the grocery store. It's easy enough to stick a handle on it. Entrenching tools are made completely of metal. Spatulas are made of metal.

    There are lots of options...

    So a garden trowel & fireplace tools are too big? How about a big spoon? Serving spoon or one like a cafeteria sever scoops mashed potatoes with...
    Cut &/or bend it to the perfect size & shape.

    or just leave the bit of ash in there...just sayin'

    Chumley died in a car accident about 5 years ago, Tennessee is still with us, but not as slender or healthy as he once was.
