Customer Questions & Answers

is the handle long enough for people over 6ft tall?

Asked by: Jay
Hello Jay. Yes, it's plenty long enough. However I don't recommend this shovel. What they don't tell you in the online description is that there are only two small screws holding the handle onto the blade. They're merely wedged into matching holes, with no threading. The screws fell out while I was shoveling in the Jan 23rd snowstorm, and are now somewhere in my yard under 20 inches of snow. I returned the shovel to HD for a full refund.

Customer Reviews

18 in. Ergonomic Steel Handle and Aluminum Combo Blade Snow Shovel is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Snow Shovel - Aluminum Shovel shipped in two parts. A handle and a scoop with 2 # 8 x 1 inch sheet metal screws. The handle was difficult to insert into the aluminum cavity of the shovel and made it hard to align the two screw holes. One of the screws stripped out the aluminum and metal where the handle is inserted. Had to go to the hardware store to obtain a larger screw to make a tighter fit. Aluminum construction of scoop is thin and flimsy. It will bend the scoop it you hit ice under the snow. Too bad the manufacture does not state the thickness of the aluminum scoop to better determine if it is sturdy enough. I was disappointed with this purchase. Even though this review did give the option, I am a "Verified" purchaser of this shovel at Home Depot

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to shovel with. The ergonomic 18 inch metal shovel was just as expected. It is sturdy, light weight and seems durable. I have used it in two snows. To assemble, I only needed to use a Phillips screwdriver to attach the handle to the blade.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Finally found a snow shovel that works and saves the back... I received a notice that this shovel was back in stock and immediately ordered it. Scrapes the driveway cleanly and is easy on the back with its ergonomic handle. The shovel is not too deep which is what I wanted. It was received promptly after ordering, price was good, assembly was simple. What's not to like.
