    Has anyone ever used this? If so, how does it work? Mainly for clearing pathways and sidewalks.

    I imagine you must need to push the snow far back as you can't lift snow with it, and can only push with it, and if you leave the snow at the edge of the walkway, where will you push it next storm?

    If I was rich, I'd give you a new truck with a new plow.

    hehe. why thank you! Im working on it. If I can sell this ford by the middle of feb. I might end up with a new chevy. I was going to get a new ford SD but, the chevy is cheaper (realiative is the manager of 3 chevy dealers), so Im going to take advantage of it, but I have to sell the ford first...

    hehe. anyway thanks, and lets get back to the topic.

    P.S. On Thursday my buddies dad let me barrow his 04 f250 with a 8ft meyers max on it, and let me tell you, im in LOVE with plowing. It took about 2 hours to get used to it, but I got the hang of it real fast, and I love it. I cant wait to get my own plow truck.

    this shovel works great on side walks that are running along the parking lot. it ia angled to push the snow over the edge and placing the snow on the lot then you can just make your first pass right next to the side walk edge and work away from the walk it is a pusher so you just have to use it during the right conditions ..... :salute:

    I saw a cross between a shovel and a snow blower the other day at Home Depot (but I can't find it on their website). It was a plastic pusher type shovel with an auger across it that spins when you push it "casting" the snow to the side. It was about $40 I think- I wonder how (IF) they work.

    As JUSTME said, I saw it at Home Depot last night as well.
    It was a push shovel, not powered, and had a cap on one end, and an auger which I guess would direct the snow the other way. I'd like to try one out, or hear how they work as well.
    My first guess would be gimmick, and regular shovel will always work faster in my opinion, but it may have a special niche, which may make it easier for elderly or something?

    Close but no cigar- Same concept but manually powered- as in when you push it the snow rotates the auger and the auger throws (theoretically throws) the snow. No engine, no cord- I want to try it but refuse to spend the $$.
