Muhahahahoho….. These were evil winter laughs when it saw your face in the morning when you were looking at 20-inch snow in front of your house. After few coffees, you get dressed, wear your best gloves. After you got dressed, you went to the garage or another place where you keep your tools. Then you grab your old, rusty, half-broken snow shovel and start shoveling that 20-inch snow.
After few feets, you are exhausted because of that old snow shovel which can hold only 2 pounds of snow and even then bends like plastic pice in 100-degree sun.
That’s it. You say to yourself – I need a new snow shovel. And this time it won’t be 4$ shovel from a local store, but good shovel which will last at least three seasons. But then you think – which snow shovels are really good? Maybe I should look on the internet. And boom, you are here, reading the best gardening newspaper which wrote about best snow shovels and all you have to do – choose.
5 best snow shovels
Shovel Smarter, Not Harder – Snow Joe says like that. It’s true because 80% of shovelers do not know how to shovel properly. This shovel claims to be Strain-Reducing Snow Shovel, and it’s true because of its second handle which helps to toss snow out of the shovel. I would recommend this shovel for people who have back pain. Snow Joe shovels second handle is spring-loaded and ergonomic and helps to return the shovel, ready for the next load quickly. Snow Joe shovel has:
- Ergonomic and comfortable, D-ring grips
- Technology which helps to throw 3x more snow than usual shovel
- 18-inch shovel blade with heavy-duty aluminum wear strip
- It weighs only 2 pounds
Some boring but useful specification:
- Ergonomic Bent Handle
- Galvanized Steel Wear Strip
- Ribbed Steel Core handle
- Blade 18-by-12-inch
- Length 52.5-inches
At first, it looks weird. Like a broken shovel. But after you have tried it, and you feel that it’s awesomely easy to shovel with it, your mind will change those thoughts. Anyway – it’s definitely worth the price. It’s almost unbreakable and galvanized metal wear strip will make this shovel to last at least 5-6 years. The curved handle helps your back when you have a massive load to throw. Company ships them fully assembled so you won’t need any screws or tools to start using it.
Another excellent snow shovel from Snow Joe. This shovel is quite impressive because it’s transparent. It’s made from non-stick, shatter-proof poly material and also wear strip is made from durable poly. I have never seen a transparent shovel before, but somehow I think it can be quite useful because you can see what you are shoveling. I’m not sure how can it be helpful, but in my mind, it keeps repeating that – it’s must-have thing. Shovel ships in 4-pieces and you need to assemble it by yourself, but this 4-piece system is fantastic, you can take your shovel everywhere, in your car even. The only con about this shovel is that it always feels that it will come apart, but it never does. It’s really durable.
Very comfortable shovel. It has a poly blade and ergonomic curved Aluminum Hande with ergo Versa- Grip. You can hold this shovel in many many ways and find that comfortable position you need. Ohh and it’s 18-inch shovel by the way. Some users are saying that it’s perfect for shoveling manure, some likes to shovel snow and someone shovels sand with it. Because it’s comfortable, durable and must-have tool!
Image the simplest snow shovel. Now open your eyes and look at Suncast SC2700 20-Inch Snow Shovel. Yep, that’s the shovel you imagined. It’s casual, simple shovel with non-stick graphite blade, galvanized steel wear strip, steel core handle, and durable plastic shovel. It does not feel cheap. It’s very very durable and feels great when throwing huge snow pile. For this price if you want simple snow shovel, that’s it, search no more.
