I order this one back in 2017 and has been using it since! A pretty solid shovel!

Got one a couple of years ago and love it. The blade isn’t sharp, which is a good thing as it doesn’t catch on each and every little bit of ice.

Just wondering: Does the 2nd handle (lower) flex a lot when you're throwing the snow?


Possible PM at HD?

I find the corner of the metal edge is very sharp and destroys my asphalt. I try to avoid using this shovel unless i know I can get a clean swipe across the driveway.

Have this shovel and not a huge fan to be honest. The "flexible" lower handle is more of a flimsy handle and I find it hard to control when shoveling. Just prefer something more rigid

Good for shoveling snow, but not as great at pushing.

I suspect the negative reviews of this shovel on Amazon or more believable than the positive ones.

I've had this 3 years going strong. I would say it helps save your back, and is good for lighter snow. With heavier/compacted snow I don't use the handle, I just use it as a regular shovel and that works fine

I'd recommend it

After reading the first two posts on this thread -I ordered the shovel , I came back to post my thanks and read rest of the reviews here and cancelled the order.

So it is worth getting or not? I did get my entire driveway done in summer -is the blade too share on edges or what's going on?

Definitely knock-off idea of "the Heft Handle". https://www.amazon.ca/Secondary-Handle- ... B074JG6JV7

For lifting and throwing snow this definitely makes life easier 100%.

For actually moving large amounts not snow this is not as good.

My wife prefers it to use versus larger shovels.

On light snow days, I use this. When the snow is heavier, I use my larger shovel to move the snow to where it needs to go, then I use this for actually picking up and throwing the snow.

Definitely helps with the strain

Bought this one from Amazon in Nov. 2019 and hate it. It's just too flimsy for my usage, especially the lower handle on the "spring". It was $18.74 at the time, so I didn't feel too bad putting it in the Free Shed at our landfill.

Bought this from Home Depot last winter and it has been amazing. No difference when pushing snow. The second handle will flap around but it doesn't get in your way. When you reach the end of the push, the second handle makes it much easier to pick snow up and throw it on the lawn. It is definitely easier on your back. The second handle is flexible to help adapt with how you may lift the shovel up, basically acts as an extension of your arms rather than a non-flexible piece.

The metal piece is not sharp. It wraps around from the top to the bottom rather than some shovels just having the metal piece at the bottom. I have an asphalt driveway and it has no scratches. If you have a stone driveway, the sides of the metal may make it a bit harder to push as it may catch onto the gaps especially if it is uneven.

The best shovel I have ever bought.
