    I just ordered 3 shovels from them last night and they shipped today. They look pretty nice online. I'm hoping it's an upgrade from the hardware store crap.

    The 28" shovels are clearanced to $35 with free shipping over $50 if anyone is interested. It looks like they stopped making the 28".

    How much snow do you think you can reasonably handle with the 48" using it like a plow? I started small with the 28" and figured I would get a 48" if I liked them.

    You will love these shovels. We bought three last year. Didn't get the 48" but considering getting two of them this year. You can push 6" of dry snow easily. We always use them like a plow then when it gets too heavy, we go with the short strokes to the curb.

    They are great on any amount of snow as long at it is dry. Wet snow they are a little tough to use. I just ordered 4 more today.

    looks nice- I have an aluminum one of that style, about 20 inches. When it works it works great... but it's almost never dry snow here!

    Looks like a silly shovel to me.

    1) Very rarely do I see a 'dry' snow
    2) I have found that shovels like this make it very hard to pick up the snow... Yes, you can use it like a plow until you get to the end of the walkway or driveway or sidewalk or whatever you are shoveling, but eventually you have to pick it up. First year in business I bought 2 shovels simular to these and they got pulled out for one snow storm. Every since they have been sitting in a corner for years. They will be thrown out with the next dump load.

    Where you at in the mid-west? If your close to me, I will take them instead of you throwing them away....
