Pros: it's a great shovel and really is good for utility. nice pusher, good scooper, and not bad at edging. it's great for scraping stepped/driven on snow. the handle feels comfortable and it really feels like it's going to last forever.
Cons: the bend in the sides means it's not very good at side edging. not a big issue since you can go straight on but on stairs with 6" of snow i had some difficulty getting them clean. As you scoop with the side against the edge the snow just falls over the sides. This is really only a problem when the edge is against the side and you can adjust by just not doing it.
Others: If I could design it myself I'd make it taller. I'm 6'2" and it would be just fine with me if the handle was longer.
Luckily, I did make this purchase, because sure enough, we did get more snow. Nothing over a few inches, but so far, I am very pleased. And as a life-long New Englander, I think I have pretty high standards for snow shovels!
First, the blade is nicely curved, so the snow gets scooped into the blade as you push it along the ground. What I especially like is that you can scoop a good amount of snow in one push.
Second, the steel wear strip works great. It makes for smooth movement over my driveway, and I can clear the snow right down to the blacktop.
Third, the shovel is not too heavy. We literally have a 4-to-5-foot snow bank on either side of our driveway because of all the accumulated snow this season. I wouldn't say it's "easy", but I am able to use this shovel to throw snow over the tops of the snow banks. (I am a 5' 6" female, not especially fit, but not exactly out of shape either. Manually shoveling snow is probably the most exercise I get all year!)
This product boasts a "unique VersaGrip" handle which is kind of hard to see in the product photo, but basically, there's a bend in the middle of the handle. So far, I haven't noticed it being especially comfortable on my hands or anything, but it doesn't bother me, either, so I think it's fine.
As I mentioned, I didn't get this shovel until the end of the snow season, so I don't know yet how sturdy this shovel will be under the weight of heavy, wet snow, or whether or not the steel wear strip will work effectively in helping to break up that layer of ice that sometimes builds up on the driveway. Still, I'm willing to give this product 5 stars now because it's doing a great job so far, and I suspect that it will hold up. I do tend to keep up on my reviews, so if I make any new discoveries in the coming winters, I'll be sure to update this review.
Now, I want to say, I'm big on online shopping, and I'm always careful to read reviews before making a purchase. This shovel surprised me because it looked really great, but at the time I bought it, there were only a handful of reviews. I jumped over to the web site of a major home improvement retail chain, and sure enough, they had dozens of reviews on this product - and all were positive. If there still aren't a ton of reviews here when you look at this product, try checking out reviews on other sites.
UPDATE 3/4/2015: Last night, we got a few inches of snow, then rain. That makes for a very wet, very heavy slush. This shovel felt sturdy under the weight, and held up fine.
With that said, it does its job. The locking mechanism on the right side of the picture unlocks & locks in place with an ease. Obviously this is plastic so there will be flex but you're not going to be shoveling 3' of snow with it either. I have snow tires on my WRX that's all wheel drive but figured it's better to have one than not.
I guess you can technically buy one of the small folding shovel with metal tip and save yourself $5 but again, if you're trying to move a large amount of snow underneath the car or width is the main priority than this will do the job.
The handle flips down and folds into the shovel itself, making it about the size of a legal piece of paper (thicker, of course). It is curved, which is ideal for shoveling, but did make it somewhat difficult to find an out-of-the-way place for it in my hatchback. You can lay it against the side of your trunk, but will stick out on the edges.
