I have use them blue things and they don't last for me. The blue one i have is about 6" shorter on the cutting edge after a few storms. I'm the one stuck using that one because all the hired help takes the snowplow shovels. I am going buy another 36" Snowplow shovel because they last a hell of a lot longer then the cheap ones.

Bought one

OK so I bought a 36" shovel today and I have to say I'm pleased with it on this light snow we got today. I'm going to try and post a video soon.

I've used both as well biggest thing is those blue ones ware the cutting edge and do it unevenly. Snowplow is yet to show any ware it is all I will buy from this point on.

I also like that there is a lip on the side of what I use to better carry the snow when needed. I saw the patio video, I have no need to ever do that, im not gonna spend that much time and effort on something like that, or let one of my properties get like that in the first place.

I have been using these for at least 10 years, usually get at least 2 seasons out of them (I have at least 2 that go out each storm). only had one handle crack because it got ran over. they get used until they wear down to an unusable point


I am sincerely curious to hear someone who has used this type and the snowplow
I use the same shovel 18.60 Mine Looks like that one But mine has steel / plastic cover handles
Only time they get pitch in the trash
They fall off the ATV and they run over it Never broke a handle or a shovel head by shoveling snow
I bought 4 new Shovels and still have 3 out the 4 One my guys left it at a bank went back and it was gone That guy bought me a new one

If shovel doesnt clean to bare concrete Thats why we spread Icemelt That takes care of left over part
