Rated 3 out of 5Â by Donuts This shovel could be great
This was the best shovel I ever used. I even cleared my driveway and walks faster with this shovel than with my 26 inch snowblower! Then it fell apart the third time I used it! The metal edge on the front of the shovel that clears everything clean came off due to the rivets shearing off from the bottom! My driveway is newly paved and perfectly smooth so the shovel never got hung up on any obstructions to shear the rivets. I will try to exchange it and give it one more chance if there are any left. So I will recommend it with caution for now.

LOVE THE SHOVEL OVERALL. DURABLE ERGONOMIC. BLADE IS VERY GOOD QUALITY AND SHARP EXCEPT FOR WHEN IT FELL OFF BOTTOM OF SHOVEL AFTER USING TWICE. MY OBVIOUS GUESS FROM NATURALLY RUBBING AGAINST CEMENT. IT IS SUPPOSE TO BE MADE FOR EXCESSIVE USAGE AND FUNCTIONALITY. ALL 7 RIVETS OUT OF 8 FELL OFF AND I HAVE NO IDEA WHERE THEY WENT. THE ONE THAT WAS LEFT ON WAS WORN. FIRST OFF THE RIVET WAS THE SAME DIAMETER AS THE HOLES THAT WERE MADE ON THE BASE OF THE SHOVEL. SO, AS THE FRICTION OF USAGE SHOVELING THE SNOW FROM THE CEMENT WAS HAPPENING THE RIVET WORN OUT AND NARROWED ITS WIDTH MAKING THE RIVET FALL THROUGH THE HOLE ON SHOVEL ITSELF. IF, MAYBE... THE BOTTOM OF RIVET WAS WIDER SPREADING OVER THE BOTTOM OF THE SHOVEL THIS WOULD NOT HAVE OCCURRED. BETTER YET, INSTALL THE PRODUCT WITH STRONGER RIVETS OR SCREWS WITH BOLTS.... I WAS GOING TO RETURN THE SHOVEL BUT ENDED UP FIXING MY SHOVEL WITH SCREWS AND BOLTS THAT I HAD HOME. I PUT THE BLADE BACK THE WAY IT CAME ON BOTTOM OF SHOVEL. THEN NOTICED THERE WAS AN INLAY WHERE THE BLADE LAYED MORE FLUSHED AGAINST THE INSIDE OF SHOVEL. THIS MADE THE SCREW/BOLT THAT GOES THROUGH THE HOLES ON THE SHOVEL HIGHER UNDERNEATH THE SHOVEL AND DOES NOT RUB AGAINST CEMENT. SO FAR?? HOME DEPOT WEBSITE PHOTO OF SHOVEL SHOWS BLADE ON THE INSIDE OF SHOVEL WHERE AS MANUFACTURERS WEBSITE (AMES TRUE TEMPER) SHOWS IT ASSEMBLED ON THE BOTTOM . IN MY STRONG OPINION...THAT IS THE OBVIOUS PROBLEM.. .SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT AMES TRUE TEMPER MANUFACTURING COMPANY??? AGREE?? BOTTOM LINE YOU NEED TO BE HANDY AND DO THE MANUFACTURERS WORKERS JOB. YOU PAY FOR PRODUCT BUT DO NOT GET THE QUALITY YOU PAY FOR.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by MrPlow The best shovel out there
This is my second SnowBoss 26. The original wore out on the outside edges after 5 years. We often get 15-20 snow events a winter (often multi day), so this life span seems reasonable to me. The metal edge and plastic on the side ground away after time, and it finally cracked when I was hammering at some ice. I immediately went on a hunt for a new one, which should tell you all you need to know.
I like the wide swath of snow that you can push with this shovel. It has two handles near the blade for lifting and tossing. I use the lower one for heavier snow. The new shovel I got has a different design on the metal edge, so hopefully it will last longer.
Beware the look a like (I think it is even the same manufacturer) without the metal edge. You won't get the same ice busting power without it.
Additionally, I am 6'1" and have no problem lifting the shovel when it is loaded. My 5'2" wife hates this shovel.
