Need to get an replacement for it.

Don't like straight handle shovels.
Look into a sleigh shovel. As long as you are able to keep your piles below 3-4' and have boots with decent traction, you'll rarely have to lift snow again. It doesn't completely replace a traditional shovel, but I use the sleigh shovel 90% of the time in my yard.

how accurate is Lowe's inventory. Just wondering if it's worth it to drive down to see if they have any in stock even though website says 0.

Waste of money. The flexible spring thing destroys your rhythm

Best ergo snowshovel I have found yet is at Factory Direct. Handle is sort of zig zag instead of the big curve. Doesn’t look intuitively better, but in practice is the best I’ve used. Also comes with foam grip in the right place so your hand is not on cold steel (I used to wrap mine with duct tape)
Only $20 too.
Here it is

Edit, thanks to Canuck2fan...
Note that this shovel may need a tweak. Every one had a ´loose’ handle fit into the blade, so that the blade wants to twist slightly in use. I removed the blade, wound a layer of tape on the handle so that it fit tightly and put the blade back on with the original screw, plus added one more screw of my own. Totally forgot about that step, the shovel is awesome once it’s tightened up.

Add this Yardworks Power Grip to any straight handle shovel to save your back.

It's actually well made and you set it at any length you want, no tools needed. Then swap it over to your next shovel when you snap the blade on that big dirty windrow the snowplow left you. Some sandpaper sandwiched between the handle might be needed to keep it from rotating.

Btw the boring dark grey polypropylene or polypro shovels with a regular old wood handle seem to last the longest. They wear just as fast but don't seem to crack like colorful polycarbonate shovels. I've destroyed at least a dozen of those goddamn things.

Are there any sleigh shovels on sale in the GTA?
Mine may not last it through this winter. Had it about a decade now, so it does not owe me anything.

Im thinking it’s one on]f two things.

1. Global warming. They’re sold out in Calgary because in Alberta they’re not allowed to believe in global warming. :)

2. They’re clearing out the 2019 models of snow shovels before they introduce the 2020 models of snow shovels. You know, the ones with Bluetooth. :)

Factory Direct? Make SURE you plug it in the store multiple times to make sure it works, their return policy is no good.... So buy the extended warranty. Even better open it up right in the check out line and make sure it doesn't have any visually blown capacitors or burnt tracings on the circuit board.


Sorry could not resist. LOL Cause RFD hates Factory Direct...

Hahaha. Fair enough, and to your point, this:
I have owned or given as housewarming gifts, 4 of these.
Every one had a ´loose’ handle fit into the blade, so that the blade wants to twist slightly in use. I removed the blade, wound a layer of tape on the handle so that it fit tightly and put the blade back on with the original screw, plus added one more screw of my own.

So I guess as long as you want to do your own Quality Control, this is the place to shop.

Picked up the Garant 22". I've already got one in my garage and it's worked fine for two years now. Almost bought it 2 weeks ago but couldn't determine in the store which one I had at home.

The 22in is better built than the 21in despite the cheaper price.

Has metal wear strip, slightly longer handle, and sturdier.

Of course, it only matters if you can find them.
