"I want a good ergonomic snow shovel"

Needs to go easy on my gimpy back and be able to move or push a lot of snow. Would consider a power snow shovel.

Re: I want a good ergonomic snow shovel

I have (and love) this Garant Yukon sleigh shovel. It's not your typical shovel as you push and "plow" the snow and then dump it where you want it. You don't actually lift the snow.

I end up using this all the time when there is not quite enough snow to warrant getting out the snow blower. Because of it's huge 27 1/2 inch blade, you can push a ton of snow very easily. I've also used it to quickly clear the snow off the flat roof over my deck. It makes the work go a lot faster and is much, much easier on my back.

The way it works is you push the sleigh through the snow (using your legs and not your back like a normal shovel) until the scoop fills with snow. You then navigate the snow-filled sleigh to the side of your driveway, push down a little bit on the handle to lift the front edge up, slide the sleigh over any lip of snow at the edge of your shoveling area and then lift up on the handle (pivoting on the front edge of the blade) to dump the snow where you want it.

It's very solidly built, to boot. There are a lot of similar "sleigh" products, so shop around. I, for one, am a convert from "shovel" to "sleigh". So much faster and easier.

comment Nothing beats a snow pusher for speed of cleaning. Love mine too. - bigben 6 years, 6 months ago
