Answer: 
If the surface under the snow is smooth, like a smooth paved driveway or cement walkway, it will slide easily and you can push it. If you have a rough surface or chunks of ice under the snow you may need to pick up on it a bit, kind of like using a weed trimmer.

It slides under the snow so you don't need to pick it up. If the snow is very deep you can probably allow it to glide to the top of the snow and remove it in layers. I have successfully used the shovel in 4" snows.

Answer: 
It will slide on the ground for snow under 6" deep. After that you need to lift it up and use it like a shovel. While this is the lightest snow thrower at 12lbs., it gets heavy when used as a shovel.
Good for decks and steps.
I like the toro electric snow blower for deeper snow and larger areas like driveway and walkway.

To answer your question I have found the electric shovel to be helpful.

Also this shovel handles 5-6" of snow easily. I haven't used it on any heavy wet or slushy snow I hope this was helpfu. P.Fab

I am the big D - shovel is okay for dry, less good for wet; mechanical snow-picker-upper is plastic so drum is likely to crack/break if one hits the transition from paved to un - it is VERY heavy, hard to maneuver (no wheels, just your body power) - snow coming out is not directable, resulting in blowing snow covering what you have already blown clear (ish).
Also going to one that has rear wheels (even if not self-propelled) would improve maneuverability tremendously. another issue is the safety lock out, it is held with one hand and that hand gets mighty tired, you have to push in button and then squeeze handle. I will probably go back to hand-held ergonomic hand shovel.

Slush is a more dificult task even for my tractor snowblower. The snow shovel had more power than i expected and worked well on hardened crusty snow as it blew right throught it. I am very pleased. I have not used the shovel on slush but i do believe it push it away a foot and you would need to keep moving the slush forward. It throws snow 10 feet I would guess.

It would work ok on grass, but it would chew up some of the grass if it came in contact with it. We don’t believe it would hurt your lawn, but it would throw little grass clippings across the snow. The nice thing about the Toro Power Shovel is that it is so light. You should be able to hold it just above the ground (without contacting the grass) to clear a path for your pet.

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 586 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beating the Blizzard of 2016 Got this shovel just before the blizzard of 2016. We had 28 inches here in Brooklyn NY and the shovel met the challenge with ease. Two neighbors took it for a 'test drive' during the storm and went to buy one! It's made for up to 6" of snow but handled a few inches more than that without lifting the thing. And when I did lift it to blow away the top few inches of snow, it was light and not an issue. I even blew the snow over my car, parked in the driveway, from front to rear to get my car out. The one issue I had was the screw that holds the adjustable handle in place, vibrated out. I contacted Touro customer service and they quickly sent me a replacement free of charge, as a courtesy. Excellent customer service! I will fix that problem with a piece of tape over the screw. This is well worth the price. February 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Don't underestimate this shovel. I will admit, I was hesitant to give this one a shot, but it was the only thing in stock before the 2016 blizzard. First things first, you need this to understand this is a power shovel, not a slow blower. I think some reviews take away because it's missing some features you would expect on a larger, more expensive blower. This thing went right through 6" snow as claimed, throwing it quite a good distance. Even after it started tuning to slush, it still threw it enough to manage. I was even able to tame the lovely mountain VDOT leaves at the end of the driveway when you're done shoveling. You can still start at the top of deeper snow and work your way down, just make sure it hasn't turned to ice inside. The only real drawback is the wind blowing the dust back in your face is pretty cold, you can however, just turn in the other direction. Did pretty good for my driveway going side to side as not to re shovel the same snow. February 23, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by It Does what I expected. I bought this power shovel for clearing off a flat roof. I have not used it for that but did use it several times for my walkway and back deck. A difficult place to get my regular snow blower. It really throws the snow! Surprisingly even the wet stuff. The cons: I had used and older one many years ago that deflector fins that directed the snow off to the side. The new versions don't have that. So you have to angle the thrower to direct the snow. Another issue is it is tricky for a lefty to activate the switch. Overall it works as promised and it will get a workout. It will be perfect for clearing my flat roof. March 1, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by EXCELLENT for the price! I have a decent sized Ariens snowblower that I have to maneuver on my steep driveway without slipping on the surface & having the blower run away from me or run me over. This is a much easier solution to my problem as long as it's not snowing 2ins or more an hour. My only wish for this product was that it was battery or small gas engine mix operational. I hate having to worry about having a long enough extention cord, where to plug it in (inside or outside) & where it is so I don't run it over. I would DEFINITELY recommend this product to those who can't afford a snowblower. Oh and it saves my broken back if I need to get out the house in a hurry. January 19, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Blizzard 2016 The power shovel exceeded expectations to clear 25" of snow off a 40 ft. driveway. This product is designed for 6" or less of snow, not a record setting blizzard. The directions recommend lifting the shovel to remove snow in layers which works, however with drifting and street plowing piles, the snow depth was 45" at the end of the drive. The snow was fluffy but packed down due to drifting. By knocking the snow with a snow shovel into heights of 6", the power shovel blew the snow away, even the plow piles, with ease. Yes, it was work, but the job was completed without having to throw snow manually. No sore back from shoveling. January 24, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Nope This shovel does not have a directional flow for snow. You have to face the direction the wind is blowing in order to be able to get any snow moved if you don't want a face full of snow. It's also heavy so if you have to pick it up to attack snow more than half a foot high, then you will get a sore back quickly. Ultimately, it works great if you have a couple inches on the ground, and the wind is blowing in the right direction. Otherwise this isn't a product I would use. In recent Snowzilla, I used it once, put it away and tackled the snow with a manual shovel instead. Was faster. February 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Watch and Want Last winter, when we had a snow storm that dropped 2 1/2 feet of snow on my deck, my Son, John came down from Canton to visit and brought his Toto Power Shovel with him. Watching him clear my large deck in a short time almost effortlessly convinced me that this shovel would be my Christmas gift to the families of my other three sons and son-in-law. They were well received. Last week, Having just recently had our first snow storm, I received a phone call from my daughter-in-law, who is a small woman, raving about how little effort it required for her to clear her steps and sidewalk. Incredible! January 30, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Would be perfect if you could choose blowing direction This snow blower works great, however the downfall is that you can't position the direction in which it blows. It blows the snow directly in front of you & therefore you walk right into the path of snow & it hits you in the face. We used this once & were covered head to toe with snow. Other than not being able to direct which way the snow blows (preferably side to side) the snow blower works well & is much easier on the body & back verses shoveling....but in my opinion that is a big problem. We are returning this one & ordering a different model (same brand) that has the directional feature. January 25, 2016
