This shovel is strong and easy to use. The handle is wide enough to accommodate a thick ragg wool glove with ease. The wear strip is a nice extra when shoveling ice and hitting blacktop or concrete. I have a much cheaper shovel and don't trust it half as much as this one. The ergo design does help your back when lifting and pushing.
If you need a shovel and are thinking about it, buy this one -- it's great for fluffy and slushy snow. The capacity is pretty large -- so be mindful of your back.
The shovel is good quality and has stood up to a number of years of use, unlike several cheaper imitators whose rivets don't hold, or whose aluminum edges get bent up. Plus this shovel has a wear strip along the bottom that can be replaced when worn, adding to this shovel's long life. Also, the handle is ridged making it comfortable to hold and easy to grip when turning over to dump the snow.
At $18, this shovel is quite a bargain compared to what I paid for it at the hardware store.
In conclusion, although this shovel is much easier on the back than a cheaper straight barreled one, I would suggest this not be the only shovel in your winter arsenal. An old fashioned straight edge is still needed for really heavy snow in my opinion, and for scraping ice and sticky parts on the driveway. Overall however its a well made shovel that may be a little more expensive than you are used too, but worth it for your average snowfall amounts...: )
Whether your just pushing snow off your deck or shoveling your driveway, the Suncast is a perfect choice for snow shovel.
BTW: I am am about 5'8", in case you're wondering how it works for people of different heights.
It definitely is less strain on the back than a regular shovel. It allows you to stand upright while pushing snow around, and it's fairly easy to shovel from an upright position, too. It's excellent on fresh, totally undisturbed snow.
Unfortunately, it's not useful for clearing snow packed down by foot traffic and/or vehicles. The long handle is fairly rigid, but it springs awkwardly when it encounters something immovable (like a crack in the concrete or a patch of ice/packed snow). It also flexes in tough or heavy snow, bogging down the shovel and interrupting the smooth push. The repeated pushes and chops required to get through areas with any portion of the snowfall packed and/or frozen negates any ergonomic value, in my book.
Shovel is sturdy and well-built otherwise, however.

Regret this purchase and bit the bullet to pay to ship back for refund. Heavy, clunky and awkward to lift snow up and out of the way. Would be okay I guess if you just plowed snow.Published 3 days ago by K. A. Johnson
