Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DiggerDen Extremely Uncomfortable
Not recommended at all. Bought this to replace an older snow scoop which was finally breaking apart. This new item was so uncomfortable to use. Neither my wife or I found it ergonomic or practical when trying to move snow from the walkways or driveway.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by BDM99336 Not what I was hoping for...
The shovel is bowed. The outer corners touch the ground, but the middle doesn't, leaving a nice even layer of untouched snow where you just shoveled. Not worth the money, ergonomics or otherwise. If it doesn't even scrape snow off of smooth concrete, it's kinda useless.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DS11101 Worthless
Bought this shovel winter 2013 (Jan/Feb) and didn't use it much last year but the shovel edge is already wearing out and it doesn't scrape a clean pass on the ground. It can push a lot of snow but you have to make multiple passes to clean the walk. I would not buy again. Maybe the model with a metal edge would produce better results for this style of shovel. Works well for shoveling the leaves in the fall...

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by kuri Good for moving lots of snow fast, not good for scraping down to the sidewalk
Got one this winter. It's been great for moving large quantities of snow quickly, but the plastic blade doesn't scrape down to the sidewalk if the snow is at all icy. I had to go over most of the driveway/sidewalk again with a metal-bladed shovel to get bare pavement.
So this is a good product if you just want to get most of the snow out of the way and then follow up with a metal-bladed shovel or a chemical de-icer. But if you want to move every last bit of snow, this is not such a good product.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Portlandreviewer Not good with ice or dense snow
The plastic is too flimsy. The shovel is not ergonomic. Unfortunately, it seemed like the best available option in store at the time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BigRick Great combo pusher-shoveler
I found this to be the perfect product because you can use it as both a snow pusher and a high capacity shovel. I would not have picked it out, but I saw another guy using it who said it was great. The middle handle is ergonomically easier (your wrist is in a natural position) to hold than a normal shovel, especially for a reasonably strong adult male. With that middle handle it was easy to keep the shovel from twisting and dumping a large load. It also has a great metal straight edge and so worked great as a pusher / scraper. While I only purchased it a few months ago, it feels very durable. A note for smaller or weaker users not looking for a high capacity shovel: you may find it a bit too large or a bit awkward. For adult males: give it a try!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by shud Strong and light and easy way to get the work done.
This shovel makes snow removal easy on your back. You can choose to just plow the snow, or shovel it, but the design helps to keep the weight properly on your legs not your lower back.
