Great snow shovel…light weight easy to handle.

There's not much to say. It's a shovel, and it works as expected. The curved handle provides some benefit when shoveling. You don't have to bend as much.

This snow shovel works really well. Ergonomic handle for easy use, poly strip instead of metal on the edge so it doesn’t bend. I’m very happy with this snow shovel!

The shovel itself is heavier than others which adds to the weight of heavy, wet snow. The curve in the handle does not allow you to grip lower when lifting a heavy shovel full so I’ve relegated it for use only with light and fluffy snowfalls. It is well made though and should last a long time.

This shovel truly is easier to use than a standard straight shovel. I was able to shovel 3-4" of wet heavy snow without a problem.

Great shovel. Light weight and no metal strip to scratch surfaces

Had to look thru about 24 shovels to find the one that had the straightest end as all of them are curved on the end either from the riveting of the blade onto the shovel pan or the pan itself being warped/curved, but i did use the shovel and it worked fine scrapping the snow the entire length of the blade, also enjoyed the ergonomic handle and the less effort on my back when lifting the snow. overall i am satisfiied with the purchase.

Seems the “blade’ is bowed in the middle thus leaving snow on the edges. Might be good for throwing snow, but not for scraping the driveway surface

Response from The AMES CompaniesJan 17, 2024
Hello,
This is how the shovel is designed so when applying pressure it won't damage the edges.
Thank you for your feedback.

Like the curved handle shape, it allows for less movement of my back to move the snow. It is comfortable to use. Only drawback is that it does not have the rigidity to break up the ice. However, the light weight and ability/ease with which the snow moves make it an excellent purchase.

Back saver!
I am convinced that this shovel with an added handle (from amaz0n) half way down the shaft, is the perfect snow shovel. Took me 2.5 hours to clear our large driveway of about 4-5 inches of heavy snow and not once did my back bother me. Tell your friends.

    bought 2 - on the first one - on the first use the handle fell off. second one - scooping edge is curvy and doesn’t scrape clean against the pavement. disappointing because the ratings were so high. i’m replacing the first with identical product but we’ll see.

    As others reported, the blade of the shovel was bowed. Part of my reason for purchasing this shovel was to replace a shovel by another manufacturer which also has a bowed blade. Though this shovel was well reviewed by Wire Cutter, it appears many of these shovels suffer from the issue. I returned this shovel and purchased a similar shovel (with a nearly straight blade) by a different manufacturer.

    FLIMSY PLASTIC SHOVEL
    PLASTIC CRACKED AS SOON AS I STARTED USING IT. HAS A NICE DESIGN BUT THE PLASTIC END WILL NOT HOLD UP. IT IS WAY OVERPRICED FOR THE SUB PAR QUALITY. NOT RECOMMENDED AT ALL

      Purchased the shovel online for someone to pick up in another state. When they went to pick it up was told it was already picked up. They didn’t check they persons ID or they would have seen it wasn’t the person to pick it up. No one knew about the purchase but me and the one who was assigned to pick it up and were 8 hrs away from each other, seemed fishy but after I spoke with someone they couldn’t give me and explanation of what happened but was able to get a shovel but his ID wasn’t checked.

      Really disappointed in this recommendation from a usually trusted newspaper. I can’t believe they would recommend a shovel which blade is purposely designed to curve up on the outside, leaving an inch or so of surface area on both sides untouched. Highly inefficient. Buy a shovel that has a 100% blade to ground ratio, rather than this approx 80%, with 20% curving up, seemingly defeating the purpose of this shovel to begin with.

      I was looking for an ergonomic shovel that did not have a metal edge on it, so I could use it on a composite deck.

      Excellent shovel. I’ve had this before and our movers lost it. When I went to replace it I was glad Home Depot still had it. The shape does help your back when lifting. Shipping took a while but otherwise very happy.

      Perfect size and lightweight. I really like the material because it doesn't damage the surface of the ground. I also like the ergonomic shape.
