    Q:Why is this shovel being sold in stores? It breaks even from the lightest of snow. Junk.

    Answer This Question

    A:  I have had the shovel for years with no issue. I think it’s best for ice, not snow, because the metal catches on any change in the concrete. My driveway is to the north, so I often get a sheet of ice on my walkway and near my driveway. This breaks it up easily so I can clear it. I have a different shovel that I use for clearing snow.

      A:  Considering I've used mine to chip away built up ice, pushed over a foot of show, and shovelled with it, it makes me wonder how you used it to be able to break it in "the lightest of snow"

      by|Jan 4, 2023

      A:  I had the same problem. Bought it recently, and the plastic collar broke almost immediately, and the two screws worked loose and fell out.

      by|Feb 10, 2022

        A:  I have used mine in very heavy, wet snow and it has held up well. First season though.

        by|Sep 18, 2021

          A:  I’ve used mine to shovel my entire driveway for two winters and it still is good as new.

          by|Dec 25, 2022

          A:  I’ve had 0 issues with mine! And know several others who have the same shovel without issue.

          by|Jan 30, 2020

            A:  You may be reviewing the wrong shovel. I've had mine for 7 or eight years with no problems, except that I've finally worn out the steel edge on the bottom of the shovel. I'm hoping I can replace that part because the rest of the shovel is fine.

            by|Dec 26, 2022

              A:  return it for another one. I moved snow with mine for 3 hours over thanksgiving. Worked great

              by|Dec 17, 2019

                A:  The product is only good for shoveling ice and not to break the ice, it does have a plastic handle as an inconvenience as this is a really good product for it being plastic, plastic handle shovels is not the product if you want to break ice with, you may want a wooden handle for ice breaking jobs.

                Q:What can I do to stop snow from sticking to shovel sprayed it with Teflon but didn't help.

                Answer This Question

                A:  Not much you can do, just thump the shovel now and then or scrap with your boot. Mine didn't stick often enough to be an issue, the plastic version had less of a problem with it.

                by|Jan 27, 2019

                A:  Pam cooking spray

                by|Dec 19, 2017

                A:  Maybe something like Pam cooking spray. That's what I spray along my car door jabs to stop them from sticking overnight when we have freezing temperatures.

                by|Feb 20, 2019

                  A:  Spray it with QMax Ice.

                  by|Nov 10, 2019

                    A:  try furniture polish

                    by|Nov 18, 2018

                      A:  spray with WD-40

                      by|Jan 22, 2019

                      A:  You can try cooking spray, wax, kitchen grease, or silicone. If you keep your shovel outside in the cold, that may help as well. Some snow is going to stick regardless of what you do!

                      by|Mar 15, 2017

                        A:  Try non-stick cooking spray. That being said, I haven't found anything works in all snow conditions.

                        by|Nov 8, 2017

                          A:  Cooking spray is good

                          by|Mar 15, 2017

                          A:  Snow generally doesn't stick to a cold shovel, but road salt causes problems every time. Try applying paraffin. I learned to use it decades ago when all shovels were made of steel and often rusted. Paraffin is sold in food stores as canning wax. Comes four big sticks to a package for a small price. Warm the shovel with a heat gun or hair dryer and just rub on the paraffin. You may need to apply a couple times per season, but it last far longer than Pam, silicone and other sprays. I use this also inside the chute and housing of my snow blower. Makes a world of difference in wet snow.

                            Not well constructed
                            I purchased 5 of these shovels for our properties and 4 of the 5 have broken after 3 snow falls. The screw design is poor. Once they loosen, they cannot be tightened and eventually fall out.

                              Best shovel
                              I think the 20” aluminum combo shovel is the best I have ever seen. I put two metal hose clamps over the tops of the screws tightly. This squeezes the outside part together and prevents the screws from coming out. See the picture. I have had many plastic shovels, They all eventually crack.

                                Coming Apart Already
                                Recently purchased this shovel in North Jersey for two pending snow storms. After the first snow storm (20inches) the metal collar began to loosen and the screws could not be tightened. Ended up having to rig it by stuffing the space in the collar with some cardboard and wrap it in electric tape. Used it that way for the second snow storm (6inches) and it did ok. But shouldn’t have had to go through all that after just one storm. Definitely looks and feels sturdier than it is.

                                  Not well designed - screws stripped in a short time
                                  Much like the previous review I just read, the screws attaching the blade to the handle stripped. Upon removing the screw, there was nothing for it to attach to. The upper screw threaded into a second layer beneath the outer handle pipe, giving it something to hold. The lower screw had absolutely nothing behind the very thin metal of the handle and was just loose so the shovel blade wobbles badly. Photo shows the lower screw hole and the fact that it doesn't go through the inner sleeve to give it any chance of holding the blade.

                                    I purchased this thinking metal is always more durable, but I've had two of these shovels (the second one was a replacement) and neither lasted more than a single snow storm. The weak point is the grommet that goes between the blade and the shaft. It tears and falls out and then the blade is able to wobble. Then it is only a matter of time before the bolts weaken and fall out. It's also harder to use than the a quality plastic bladed shovel. Compared to those, snow sticks to the blade more, it's heavier so it takes more energy to toss snow, and it catches on every imperfection of the driveway. The only way I've found it to be better than the plastic version is for scraping packed snow and ice off the ground. I've been using a TrueTemper plastic shovel for several seasons, I'll be going back to that.

                                      Finally, the first snow shovel we've had that's strong enough to break apart what the county snow plow leaves across the driveway overnight, yet which is still well shaped to use as a snow pusher and full-scoop shovel. Though it would be too heavy for my daughter to wield for long, my strong grandson just loves it. He's not afraid he'll break it like he did our previous three. It has cut his shoveling time nearly in half. He is tall, so he added a second handle to the shaft. (See photo.) That made a world of difference. - This is a sturdy shovel built for strong men. We are well pleased.

                                      I bought this shovel because it appeared to be heavy duty and well built, however that was not the case. While using it for the second time the handle completely detached from the shovel! I will be returning for a different one.

                                      I have only had the shovel for a month but, it was very useful clearing the snow off the roof after the massive snowfall last week. The shovel cut through the packed snow and easily cleared the powder. The large scoop made clearing the powder a breeze and the handle was comfortable to grip. The shovel is slightly heavier than I would prefer but I needed the ridged blade to cut through the icy, hard packed snow.

                                      Shovel for Superman
                                      This winter is flirting with us – no snow so far. This morning we got some unexpected snow, and I got chance to test my new shovel. When I opened box with the shovel I've got all excited by its look and thick material (double thick then my old shovel). The edge is reinforced with metal plate to make it last in good shape see pic. 2 & 3 . My excitement lasted just till the moment when I picked up the shovel. Too heavy. The handle is metal, so my hands are freezing without gloves even for brief use. The weight of my 17 years old aluminum shovel is 2 ¼ pounds this new shovel weights 5.5 lbs., more then 3 lbs difference, which means: if I make 100 throws with this shovel, then I have to lift and throw extra 300 pounds of weight (without the snow load) just due to the shovel weight. However the shovel is great for pushing the snow. My helpers, young guys needed to shovel out by snow covered material. First words when I handed them shovel was “too heavy”. I was about to put away my old beaten shovel. But now I'll try to put it into little bit better shape and will keep it for shoveling wet and heavy snow.

                                      Perfect for Snowmageddon!!
                                      Being from the south, I wasn't too sure I'd get the chance to use this product; however, Snowpocolypse 2016 storm brought plenty of ice and snow to SC and this shovel was perfect to have! I was worried that she shovel would have some trouble with the ice, but the the steel tip blade provides great reinforcement and allowed me to easily break through the ice and keep my walkway clear. The shovel is made of aluminum so it is nice and light and has a convenient ergonomic handle that makes shoveling the snow much easier on the back. For the most part, the snow did not stick to the blade, but the more wet snow was a little stubborn and required some extra effort to remove. Long story short, this is a great shovel that should be able to help you during any winter storm, even down here in the south!
