You could do better.
on February 28, 2009
The idea behind this snow brush / ice scraper is good, but the implementation is sub-par.
First of all, the snow brush is too narrow. A wider head would allow you to clear more snow in one swoop, rather than doing what I've had to do: push the thing back and forth like a madman just to clear away a little snow.
Secondly, the brush does not swivel, so the only way to clear snow is to move this brush the same way you would move a push broom. My past snow brush (which I lost) had a swiveling head so I could use it like a push broom as well as in a side-to-side motion.
The last negative is that the brush head tends to spin if you don't tighten it every time you use it. The hot and cold tends to expand and contract the plastic, causing the brush to come loose from it's screw-on base.
- the ice scraper works like a charm.
- it's better than being caught without a snow brush
In closing, I don't know if all SubZero brand snow brushes suffer from the same drawbacks, but definitely avoid this model.
