Patio Concrete - Efficient clearing?

Hi all,

I have a pathway/patio made of solid concrete which has been broken up.

I no longer have access to machinery like a digger so wondered what you would advise is the best method of clearing the broken up concrete?

I'm happy to move it just to the side of the path for now as later on will have access to machinery to collect it but just want to clear the path for safety/easier access.

Im presuming a rake or broom will be to flipsy, so was thinking spade and wheelbarrow? any other ideas?

I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

You've pretty much picked the method I'd use. Shovel and wheelbarrow for small stuff, hands and gloves for bigger. If you just want to move it to the side...no need for a wheelbarrow.

Thank you GunGuy45 - picking up large stones then wheelbarrow and shovel worked well.
