    Comments about Ames® Arctic Blast® 18in Aluminum Snow Shovel (1640400):

    They must have changed something on this shovel recently because it no longer has the steel wear stripe on the blade as a few other other people have mentioned in past years. The blade is entirely made of aluminum and wears down quickly on concrete and asphalt. If you look at the picture closely you will see the wear strip does not exist on this current version, nor is it mentioned in the description. The one I purchased in December only made it through two light snowfalls before it became worthless shoveling a 30'x30' driveway made of asphalt and a 20' concrete sidewalk. The blade wore down very unevenly about 2" in those two uses. I wish I would not have purchased it knowing it did not have that wear strip on it. They only thing I can see that this shovel would be good for is cleaning off an ice rink possibly.

    THIS SHOVEL DID NOT COME WITH A METAL WEAR STRIP AND IS NOTHING MORE THAN CHEAP ALUMINUM. IT WOULD BE FINE FOR LIGHT SNOW ON A PERFECTLY GROOMED DRIVE OR WALK BUT WILL NOT HOLD UP IN HEAVY SNOW OR TERRAIN. YOU ARE PAYING FOR A QUALITY SHOVEL AND THIS IS NOT IT.

          Comments about Ames® Arctic Blast® 18in Aluminum Snow Shovel (1640400):

          Getting harder to find metal snow shovels! Don't want another poly shovel that deteriorates after a few seasons. With the larger relatively flat surface area this one has, snow sticking to the surface will be less of a hinderance (which snow not sticking is the biggest plus to the poly shovels). Nice classic design is hard to beat for functionality (and price).

                  The Ames Artic Blast aluminum shovel is fabulous! It is just the right weight to handle easily for a 5'5" woman. The steel wear strip on the aluminum shovel blade cuts through the toughest packed snow to the surface being cleared. Unlike ones with wimpy plastic blades, this shovel holds a lot of snow without bending. It is the best shovel I ever owned. And living in Idaho, it snows frequently.

                      Used the snow shovel twice for short time; once in 6" snow and once in 2" snow. Plastic D-handle broke the first time and had to nurse it along the second time to keep it from completely breaking off.

                      Hope I can either get a replacement handle or replacement shovel...will check with local dealer.

                      Pros

                      • Better than plastic
                      • Light Weight

                      Cons

                      • Cleared driveway - once
                      • Fell apart on first job

                      Best Uses

                      • Small jobs light snow

                      Comments about Ames® Arctic Blast® 18in Aluminum Snow Shovel (1640400):

                      First snow in North Carolina. Wore out the aluminum shovel. I got the job done, but the shovel is finished. The grommmets detached, the blade bent. I tried a plastic one next, the only thing they had left. Don't even bother, it won't get the the hardened snow off. I'll take it back and get a heavy steel pusher.
