Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Roseytoe This version has issues
I have a version of this shovel that I purchased about 3-5 years ago. The plastic bottom of it was getting pretty worn, so I bought a new one for this winter. The design combines the best of ergonomics & flexibility. The two little knobbies that hold the flex handle in place snapped in the sub-zero temperatures this morning, leaving me with a new, broken shovel with only 5 shoveling days in. The snow wasn't even heavy or packed. So now I will go back to using my old, worn shovel of the same model & try to figure out if I can switch parts on the two.

This shovel is poorly designed. This helping handle on the shaft of the shovel is poorly constructed. If you do not hold onto it at all times it will wind itself to the bottom of the shovel and then you have to wind it back to where you want it. Not happy with it at all.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by amragos Breaks too easily!
Received this as a gift from my mother. First big snow storm this year, I used it and halfway down the driveway, the handle broke off..not the helper handle, where the end of the shovel meets the red scooper part. I called EMCO because the sticker on the shovel says "guaranteed". They wanted a picture of the break, I sent it. They sent me a new shovel. Next storm I used it, picked up less heavier snow to avoid breakage. Was just "pushing" the heavy stuff and lifting a lighter load of snow. While pushing the heavy snow, it broke again, same spot. I emailed the rep, she wanted pics again, she sent me a new shovel again. Maybe third time will be the charm? Maybe not....we shall see...

Had to return because handle was cracked. Still useable, but not buying an already broken item.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by kgee very bad design
The edge of scoop was curved and with not being straight, it would leave snow behind. Just really a very bad design in my judgement. I also hated the color of the scoop. I returned it and will not buy anything like that on line again without having looked at it ahead of time in the store.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Rudy This shovel is not of the quality I expected
I had finally, after searching for 2 years, found what I thought was the same quality shovel I had purchased about 10 years ago. I was terribly disturbed to find the scoop (I think that is what it's called) was already curling up, after only 3 uses !!!!!!!! The wonderful, durable handle appears to be of the same quality as my 10 yr. old treasure.
For the 30 some dollar price of this disaster, I decline to rate this product in a manner so as to encourage anyone to purchase it.
I was delighted with the speedy deliver of this item, and the excellent qualities displayed by the attendant who checked me out at Home Depot. I am a frequent customer of Home Depot and I suggest Home Depot seriously consider discontinue the selling of this product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KJH Great Shovel Brand!
I have not yet used this particular Bigfoot shovel model, but have used similar Bigfoot shovels for years and love them. I trust this brand so much that I purchased more than one of this model so I make sure I have one when this one wears out - which will probably be a long time!
