Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Roadrunner Good all-purpose scoop shovel.
I purchased this to do the interior cleanup during the remodeling of our house. I liked the fact that the plastic scoop would not overly scratch up the underlying hardwood floors that we were going to refinish. Luckily, we were right and this didn’t cause any undue harm while holding up to the use and abuse of scooping up chunks of drywall, wood and insulation. After we were done with the demo cleanup, this shovel has served me flawlessly as a general purpose outside shovel for pea gravel, compost and wet leaf cleanup.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Visaula Great for rock moving
Handles a lot of rock at one time. Moves equivalent to 3-4 regular shovel loads at once.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by BigTim Looks are deceiving
At first look appears to be quality, heavy duty ( for plastic) shovel with sturdy wooden handle and heavy plastic. However with minimal use poor design becomes evident as plastic neck gets vertical cracks almost entire length, no doubt accelerated by poorly designed and placed screw which serves to split plastic more than hold handle inside. Repair with epoxy, stainless steel hose clamps and screws hopefully will enable me to get some use out of it. Top hand grip on further exam looks poorly designed also but has not exhibited any breaks yet. Regret buying metal and wood shovel as it is probably lighter than this as well as more durable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by UncleBucky123 Great multi use product
I use it mostly as a snow shovel. It's light, has a great scoop and comfortable handle. We just had 30" of snow here on Long Island and it handled the job quite nicely. I'm 67 years young and did not have one bit of trouble clearing my driveway and walks! I've had one for a couple of years and this time bought one for my daughter who not only clears her walks with it, but keeps it in her car- just in case she needs it. It also is great cleaning up after sweeping. Again, it's light and the broad blade works well with my push broom.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Franki flimsy, weak plastic, neck cracked in first use with snow.
Plastic is cheap variety and too thin. Not sure if it was due to cold, or plastic quality, but neck of shovel cracked on first use with snow. Wrote to ames awaiting warrantee response. Doubt it will last the 15 years it claims to be waranteed for. Should be fine as a dustpan, or for leaves, but not really up to the task for snow.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DragginTail Quality Scoop shovel for snow removal
Bought this for home snow removal. Although it will wear on the scraping edge, this is to be expected by an all plastic shovel scoop. Works well and is of excellent quality.
