Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PennsylvaniaGirl This shovel was a joy to use!
I don't know how other people are breaking this shovel, but I just completed a long driveway of this one foot snow we received in the January 23, 2016 storm. If I could give it more stars I would. I am a 74 year old lady and shoveled a lot of snow in my 32 years as a widow. How I wish I'd have had this much sooner!
Here's the scoop: You just scoop the snow building up a small bank of snow (for dumping). Then as I shoveled I learned right on to leave a small layer of snow as the sleigh shovel does what it's supposed to, it glides on the snow. Then you head for the side snow bank and thrust the handle down so it slides right up the snow bank, then you simply dump it. I was easily able to wield the shovel with one hand.
The shovel is sturdy as heck!! This snow became heavy due to rising temperatures, but I was able to get huge scoops, even pressing the shovel on with my foot.
I never tired out, didn't have to stop and rest and my back was spared all the pain of past years. My arms were not sore the next day. I can't say enough about this shovel. BTW, I have a gravel driveway.

I just bought this shovel. I live in a very difficult snow area where we can easily have a six foot snow drift. The snow recently has been so wet my snowblower would not work. I wish I had this shovel years ago. So easy to use my daughter did the work I would normally do to remove the snow. Just recommended it to a bunch of my friends as well because I am so pleased with the physical strain it saved me. Absolutely no negative comments on this product.

I haven't had enough time to use this device to give a complete review of this product. Not enough snowfall. However,the one time I used it it worked very well but don't expect to use it like a shovel. You have to shove it on the snow like a sleigh. Tip it up to drop the snow then drag it back for another pass.If used this way it works very well. I like it and see it as another tool to help remove snow without a lot of lifting. However you can't use it like a regular shovel. You have to keep it on the ground, shove it along like a sleigh, then tip it at the end of each pass. If used this way it works quite well.

I bought this right before the blizzard in January of this month. This shovel is great in picking up vast amounts of snow. The hard part is building snow ramps to drag the shovel up to dispose of the snow. At times we had too much snow and I couldn't drag the shovel up to get rid of the snow. I would use another shovel to help build a berm and then I could use this big daddy to get rid of the snow. Loved the shovel. My neighbors saw it and their going to invest in one as well. Worked great in opening up the driveway after the plows kept blocking with snow from the road. Saved me hours of shoveling and was less taxing on my back. The hard part for me will be storing this thing off season.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ro the best snow shovel
anyone who gets snow should have this shovel. You don't have to lift just push the snow which makes it easier on your back. We live on a mountain an the driveway is 1000 feet long it would take hour to shovel now we do it in half the time. Our drive is so steep we cant use a snow blower this snow shovel is a blessing WE LOVE IT . Made very sturdy from the scoop to the handle which is made to push and remove snow w/o hurting your back.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Julipold Better when the handle is installed correctly
I finally got to try this out after a 12+ inch snowfall. It moved snow a lot quicker than a regular shovel which is what I was looking for. I'm hoping I don't have to use it again for that much snow but it is very helpful for the pile that the snow plow leaves at the end of the driveway. I can use leverage to move the large chunks of snow and ice which really helps because I probably physically would have a really hard time otherwise. When I was using it I kept thinking it was so silly that I have to bend down so low to get the snow up on the banks and then I realized my ridiculous mistake with installing the handle backwards. It works much better when you get that part right.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MKL So much easier!
This snow sleigh has been awesome! I was starting to get back pain from traditional shoveling with the torque from tossing the snow to the side. With the sleigh, you just push the snow forward toward the side of the driveway and flick it off the end of the shovel. It's much faster and easier! I recommend watching a you tube video on it to see just how to use it. It does feel like it has potential to break if used in super deep or heavy snow, so you've got to be careful not to overload it.

Removes heavy plowed snow at street end of driveway better than a blower especially when wet
