Product Overview

The Bigfoot Combination Shovel with Adjustable Ergonomic Handle is one of the most unique ergonomic snow shovel's available. The power lift handle adjusts to the height of any user by utilizing a screw collar that can be adjusted to the user's arm length and position. This feature allows the user to shovel snow with very little bending over and lessens stress on your lower back. After lifting the snow, the user can simply twist their wrist, which causes the blade to turn and snow to be released. The blade on this emsco combination shovel combines a standard snow shovel, snow scoop and snow pusher hybrid design to create one super snow shovel. The blade has the ease of use of a standard shovel, the holding capacity of a scoop shovel and the curve of a pusher shovel to clear flat surfaces.

Is very light, by be 4 or 5 lbs

What kind of warranty comes with it. Seems if handle is plastic it would be prone to break.

The label on the shovel says it is lifetime guaranteed, but a previous question implies that a customer had trouble dealing with the company. The handle is plastic, but it is very sturdy, and I used an earlier model for ten years or so without a problem while shovel tons of snow.

What is made from metal or plAstic ?

It's entirely plastic except for one retaining screw where shovel attaches to handle.

Will Home Depot back the lifetime warranty when Emsco refuses to respond to any customer service inquiries?

You had better hope so because I had a lot of trouble dealing with the company on faulty shovel issues.

Okay, if you never encounter ice and just use this to shovel snow it should work fine for years. I, unfortunately, tried to lift a chunk of ice on my second time out. Broke more easily than any shovel handle I have ever had. Usually the blades break and I am left with a fine handle, but not this one. Be patient when you send a note to Emsco to take advantage of the warranty. Comes as no surprise that the person handling replacements is swamped. After a week or two I received a very pleasant return email with instructions on how to get a replacement handle. Even though this shovel will be back to work by next Winter, I am back to searching for a snow shovel that will handle whatever chore is needed to clear the front steps. This isn't it.

Due to age and our bad backs we are always looking for innovative show shovels. This one sounded promising but is plagued by its flimsy design. I our case it only lasted one session. It was used by my wife last year when we had our first significant snow fall. She relatively small, about 5 ft high and a little over 100 lbs. So she doesn't put a major strain on a snow shovel. However the spiral guide broke at the bottom where it is secured by a screw leaving the handle useless as it is no longer secured to the handle. I sent a picture of it to the manufacturer but have not heard back from them. So thumbs down due to poor construction and poor customer service.

This version has issues
I have a version of this shovel that I purchased about 3-5 years ago. The plastic bottom of it was getting pretty worn, so I bought a new one for this winter. The design combines the best of ergonomics & flexibility. The two little knobbies that hold the flex handle in place snapped in the sub-zero temperatures this morning, leaving me with a new, broken shovel with only 5 shoveling days in. The snow wasn't even heavy or packed. So now I will go back to using my old, worn shovel of the same model & try to figure out if I can switch parts on the two.

Breaks easily
I bought two. On the first, the plastic scoop cracked where the handle goes into it. My girlfriend used the second, and the first time she shoveled snow, the ergonomic handle snapped off where it's connected to the threaded part of the handle. The design is good, especially being able to rotate the shovel while holding the ergonomic handle, but it is so cheaply made that it breaks very easily. If it were made of stronger material, it would be the best shovel ever.

Cheap, thin plastic breaks easily
This was very comfortable to use while it worked. I had two. On the first one, the hole in the scoop cracked where the handle goes in, and the scoop fell off. On the second, I was extra careful, but the secondary handle snapped off at the pivots. It's a great idea for shovel, but it's so poorly made and delicate that it useless after only a few uses.

I bought this to replace an earlier model that I used to shovel tons of snow over at least ten years. I first ordered from a company other than Home Depot, but the shovel I got had a warped edge on the scoop that left strips of snow on the sidewalk. A replacement shovel had the same problem, so it went back too. We then ordered from Home Depot, and the scoop on the shovel was not warped. The stationary handle was 10-15 degrees off center but in the direction that doesn't bother a right-handed person like me, so I kept this shovel. This company seems to have some quality control problems, but if you get one without issues, you will really like it because the adjustable handle will save your back when shoveling a lot of snow.

I haven’t had a chance to use it yet, but I expect it to work just as well as the one I’ve used for years that looks just like it. The adjustable handle reduces how much I have to bend over. The fact that it clips up on the main handle is nice so I don’t have to reach down for it all the time.

I bought this because it looked like the one I had for over 20 years, I couldn't find a brand name on it. The adjustable handle is great and saves the back. My old one took lots of abuse, slamming into snow and ice. The old ones plastic blade edge was worn down and ragged but still did a decent job of getting the concrete clean. The new one has a bow in the middle of the blade that leaves a thin strip of snow right down the middle of the shovel. I don't know if it is made like this, or happened because it was stored on the blade. I'm thinking if I put a thin piece of metal along the blade I can straighten it out. If the blade didn't have the bow, I'd give it 5 stars.
