I think the Snow Scoop going to serve better as a toboggan or a cart than as a shovel. First, the leading edge can barely be called an edge--it's more like a bar. It's so thick that it doesn't really cut through the snow like a blade--it's more like the edge of a 2x4. And the wheel doesn't really serve a purpose. It's so far forward on the fulcrum, it doesn't really bear any weight. And then there's the weight. It's quite heavy. According to the shipping info, it's 17 lbs, which doesn't sound terribly heavy, until the snow piles up on it. And then, when the snow does pile up, it sort of sticks instead of sliding. So, overall, there's lots of effort, and it didn't take much work out of my shoulders, which was what I was looking for. Maybe there's a particular kind of snow condition that it works in, that happens once every other year or something. I really really wanted to like it, but I'm not feeling it.
While well made and sturdy, the size of the snow scoop makes it unwieldy and the angle/size of the 'shovel blade' makes it impossible to get a clean pass. The first snow of the season was one of those super-heavy snows making it impossible to use. Even with a normal weight snow, on a long pass such as a sidewalk you scoop and then tip the scoop sideways to empty it. It's an awkward movement and it's difficult to get down to the concrete as you would with a shovel. Storage is also an issue in a small garage.
