It seems that it could be easier than a shovel! By the way, as Our site of advice has already written, shovels are different. This time let’s talk about what tools manufacturers now offer for removing snow. Let’s make a small overview based on the reviews of online store buyers.
Let’s start with a snow shovel designed for motorists. There is nothing worse than getting stuck on the road, so the shovel should always be in the trunk. This Hopkins 17211 model costs just over $ 17. The handle is retractable, the length can be adjusted. Thanks to this folding handle, it does not take up much space in the trunk. But the shovel itself is plastic. Therefore, the ice will not be able to chop. And, of course, she cannot clear a vast area – exclusively for motorists.
Snow shovel Suncast SC2700. According to user reviews, it has a handle height that is optimal for a person of average height, not too heavy, but allows you to clean quite large yards and garden paths. On the working part, a metal strip, which makes the tool more durable, allows you to clean the packed snow. This model of snow shovel costs from 20 to 30 dollars. Cons – you can’t push snow, in general, the shovel is very simple.
More “advanced” model Suncast SC3250. The main difference is the ergonomic handle. According to homeowners, you don’t need to lean forward too much, work is comfortable, and the load on your back is reduced. Such shovels with a plastic working part cost from $ 20, more durable aluminum ones can be estimated at $ 40. Of the minuses – it weighs more than the previous version, pushing the snow is also inconvenient – just raking and throwing.
True Temper # 12. This, according to site owners, is the most durable snow shovel. At $ 25–30, many seasons serve. The sturdy larch handle and the aluminum working part are resistant to caked snow and ice. But for tall people, the handle is too short, and the shovel weighs a lot due to the metal used in the manufacture.
Snow Joe SJ-SHLV01. The main difference is the two handles. It is convenient to fold the snow, you can lift a lot of weight without any extra effort. The design is ergonomic, and the working part is wide and sturdy enough. For the rest – an ordinary shovel, some users note that the second handle as a whole was not needed. Costs from $ 17.
Snow Wolf SW0310. Finally – a real “snow wolf”. This is a wheeled snow shovel, which, according to reviews, in capable hands, can overtake mechanical devices and scrapers in speed. The load on the back and arms is significantly reduced, the working part is wide, moves a lot of snow. There is a metal strip along the edge of the shovel that increases the strength. But this wheeled model costs more than $ 100. In addition, some users note that it is not so convenient to maneuver on the wheel..
