      Q:How is it on your back in heavy wet snow
      by|Dec 28, 2017

      Answer This Question

      A:  You will have no problems using this shovel.

      by|Dec 4, 2018

      A:  Snow shovels with an ergonomic handle like this one help to reduce lower back pain and strain when shoveling all types of snow including heavy wet snow. The ergonomic handle allows you to position the blade of the shovel nearly parallel to the ground for shoveling or pushing snow without having to bend your back as much in comparison to when using a snow shovel with a straight handle. The ergonomic handle allows you to use more proper body mechanics to get adequate leverage for shoveling snow to reduce the risk of straining your lower back by allowing you to use your arms and shoulders to lift snow and your arms, shoulders and hips to throw snow instead of relying on your lower back as much. I was skeptical initially of the benefit of using snow shovels with ergonomic handles, but after using snow shovels with ergonomic handles for many years find that using snow shovels with ergonomic handles causes far less lower back pain and strain in comparison to using a straight handle snow shovel. Please, always take precautions when shoveling heavy wet snow especially the deep heavy snow that is often left at ends of driveways after a snow plow has cleared a road or street to avoid the risk of overexertion and other health issues including a possible heart attack. Heavy deep snow needs to be removed in smaller amounts per shovelful versus attempting to remove too much snow at a time in each shovelful to avoid possible health issues based on your overall health.

        A:  No pain or Soreness after shoveling

        by|May 5, 2023

        A:  This is great because there is less being hunched over with the curve. That curve is what makes this a great product. Not to mention this brand is heavy duty. Worth every cent. You get this one and they have one that’s wider and more shallow for cleaning up and good for like plowing. I have both.very happy with both!!

        A:  Wet and heavy snow is never easy on your back.

          A:  It's pretty good on its own, but you can also add an ergonomic handle - like the Trentco ProHandle, to make it even easier on your back if you want.

            A:  Less stress on the back compared to regular shovel

            by|May 5, 2023

              A:  What's the proper way to use this shovel cause my lower back hurt after using?

              by|Jan 31, 2019

                A:  When the snow is heavy and wet, I normally just push the snow to the area I want to leave it. I have picked up heavy snow with this, and the shovel does well. When I have picked up heavy snow, the shovel part hasn't cracked or bend. I push the snow to protect my back.

                                A:  According to the label the handle appears to be steel (label info: DW SHVL,POLY,18IN,wWS,MM,D-TOP, STL ERGO HDL,KD). I love this shovel. I have an old one and wanted a spare so I was thrilled to find it again at Home Depot.

                                      A:  The strip comes from the factory with the wear strip riveted to the shovel. You can probably fasten another strip if you can find one, but I have not been able to find one online, including on True Tempers web site. The wear strip will obviously be the first part to wear (no pun intended), but I would think with its thickness, that it will last a long time, and at $27, I can replace it every 10 years or so, if needed, with the average use in my Richmond, VA location based on our normal snow fall averages.

                                          A:  If you're at least an average DIYer. The wear strip is riveted on, so you'll have to drill it off, then cut a replacement strip, drill holes to fit and rivet to the shovel. However, as economical as these are, I would simply buy a new one.

                                            A:  Not so far; shovel relatively new and the shovel surface not scraped up so no sticking issues. Used on both concrete and blacktop areas resulted in normal operation without inordinate friction.

                                            A:  Snow generally sticks less to poly blades than metal, however snowfall conditions vary greatly. It does not get hung on rough surfaces.

                                                A:  This shovel does not get hung up on rough surfaces (like, umm, driveways and sidewalks, the things that all shovels are made for but many do get hung up on), that's it's big selling point. It glides right over concrete. I like this so much I bought a second one for when my wife and I are both shoveling. I've noticed a tiny bit of snow sometimes sticks to it, but it's not been a big issue. Probably varies based on snow/weather conditions too. I highly recommend this shovel.
