Perfect for 3 inch and less snow. We clear miles of sidewalks and we were able to clear sidewalks in 1/4 the time of regular snow shovels and blowers. Works the back of your legs, not your back, so you're less fatigued. Will not work on rough blacktop, etc., but will on everything else. Also you will also need to have a regular shovel for stairs.
We purchased 10 of these and they are AWESOME! We have not had any issues with them after a full 100 inch snow season. They work great for 1-4 inches of snow...really speeds up the process. Great product!
