    Those pushers are worthless if you have to get the snow over snow banks lining your driveway or sidewalks.

    I use a pusher for some places, plain plastic only for wet rainy stuff and a shovel very similar to Mayhem's link- trouble is I wear the steel edge away roughly a season and a half per shovel. I have re edged my aluminum pusher 3 times, and am still looking to replace my favorite all plastic shovels- get about 2 to 3 seasons on one before it's worn into the groves and cleans poorly.

    Dustball's right- if you have a bank to work around a pusher is too much work.

    This year I'm trying something new with my good poly shovels. I put on 1/4" thick UHMW strips on them and I'll see how long they last. So far, so good- minimal wear on the wear strips.

    I use this if the snow is less than an inch for pushing, otherwise I use the w/b snowblowers.
