    I broke 2 shovels tonight. Has anyone used the snow shovel called the snow plow that is a sponser on this site? I did look at them a couple of months ago, look good, but $40. You canbuy a couple pushers for that money.

    yup i bought 2 of the 24"... and i love them. i wish i got the 30" so i would only have to make 2 passes down the walks. all i do is angle the shovel to the side ( like a plow) and walk with 2 hands holding the shovel. works good for back dragging steps (when you spin the shovel around) i love them and would recommend getting them for any one who does shoveling

    I have (3) 30 inchers & (2) 36 inchers.....well worth the money. will probably be buying a couple 48 inchers for next yr. for the guys to use on lighter snows.

    No good on anything but light fluffy snow, especially the 30" and up. But, I can see how they would be terrific for light snow. We just don't have much of that here.

    That's funny you mention that. I was wondering how they would do in deep snow. I still want one so the smaller accumulation will go faster with one pass.

    in deep snow they are ok but alot of scooping ( scoop, up, throw) i would just use a blower. these shovels are great for light snow and looooooooong walks

    Have used them the last three years. 30,36 and 48's I would agree the 48 is a little tough in deep snow, would strongly disagree with your statement about the rest.

    We run about 100 sidewalk guys, All would disagree with you as well.

    Our guys use them on everything from .25 of an inch to 12+ inches of wet heavy snow. They swear by them and swear at you if you take them away.

    Got a 24 and a 30. I use them both on just about anything. I especially like how the edge is basically always sharpening as you use it. I was pleasantly surprised by their ability to chop up ice and hardpacked snow. Once you figure it out, you can grab that thing and chop through hard and thick pack snow.

    What they said, use it like a plow, angled to the side with both hands. I find myself almost running behind the thing sometimes on long walks. I'm considering a 36 and possibly a 48. I've been jokingly considering a homebrew set of mini "pro-wings" for it too.

    I have 30 and a 36 and will have a 48 for next year. To say they are no good in deep heavy snow is like saying Homesteader plow is no good for clearing a 3' covered mountain pass. Really? Get a big snowblower! for both! If you are using them as a snow shovel (which is what they are), they are the best I've used.

    I bet you noticed that water bottle go flying off the top off the net behind Howard too!!:laughing:

    I see they use these at most rinks in the NHL. Good for pushing, bad for throwing snow, it's gonna slide off one side or the other. I like having side edges on snow shovels.
