    Has anyone ever used these? How well do they work? In my area we get anything from wet and heavy to dry and fluffy snow does this work for both? Thank You for any input you might have.:waving:

    I was gonna say, sounds like a brand of shovel or something.... :p

    Oh, apparantly it is! lol Looks like a fancy version if the ice rink shovel they sell at Canadian Tire... which means light snow or forget about moving it LOL

    On their website, they claim that it eliminates friction. Since no known substance is frictionless, they are obviously lying. This makes me distrustful of their other claims.

    I have one of those Garratt (sp?) Snow Plow shovels, those yellow plastic double edged blades on the 30* (ish) angle.... always thought it would be useless until I tried it, works great for those light 1" or less type snow falls, you just walk and it plows off the side. Wish it had a metal edge, though, mine is wearing thru. :cry:

    Looks like the same amount of effort for a snow scoop, and they move a large amount of snow. Plus with them you can ramp the load of snow up and over the bank.
    How is it " they eliminate bone jaring stops "? If you hit an imovable object with them, its going to stop dead just like a shovel or snow sccop!

    Works great with a 1 inch snow and smooth driveway. Heavy wet snow or uneven pavement, forget about it. wait until the spring to buy. $1 at a garage sale.

    I'd much rather have "The Snow Plow" shovel.
