These sleigh snow shovels are wonderful, and this is the best yet. I use this more than any other snow tool. They have been used on the north east coast of US, in Canada, and Northern Europe for years.
This Garant Poly Sleigh Shovel is the best yet for the light strong polymer scoop, the handle design, and three position length adjustment.
I am 70 years old, have a bad back, and use this sleigh shovel for snow up to 8 inches deep. We only get deeper snow up here in North Dakota Badlands about three times a year on three years out of ten, and I definitely use my gasoline snow blower or call a friend with a tractor who is out scooping driveways.
Many say they use this right on cement. I do not use this sleigh shovel on only three inches of snow or less, on cement, preferring to use a cheaper push type snow shovel to only clear the small loading area in front of my garage (This sleigh shovel is too pretty to scratch). Then I pack the snow on the 60 foot gravel section by driving my pickup on the first six inches or so, to make a nice base to scoop the next snow off of, or run the gasoline snow blower on without throwing rocks. (Up here the ground freezes for most of winter, no mushy snow, no mud till spring melt, by then snow is not an issue).
A few tricks are nice to know. When scooping forward, angling the handle back a little points the front of scoop upward and it then carves upward to surface where continued pushing glides it to where you want to dump. Dump it by tilting upward on its front edge (like dumping a wheelbarrow) or just by jerking back. Usually I work across the driveway and begin dumping 4 or 5 feet to side of driveway.
If you end up only clearing a narrow driveway, and the snow at sides becomes a foot or two high, and more snow is forecast, you can easily build ramps. Slide the scoop up to the bottom of ridge and angle front upward however much feels right (usually 4 inches up for me). Then push into the snow to carve ramp upward, jerk back to empty. You will then love the handle shape because you do not need to bend over much when hands are on upper forward part of bar. I find that the upper part of bar can be pushed with my waist or top of leg to help push up a ramp.
For ice I use a steel, flat fronted, utility shovel (looks like a light coal shovel). When the county snow plow plows our roads on nights that are 20 or 30 below zero the packed snow quickly becomes a wall of ice. The next clear morning I break it up with steel utility shovel or pointed steel garden shovel before scooping it up with this Poly Sleigh Shovel and sliding it to a dump area.
I never lift this sleigh shovel until off the snow, or ready to put it away. I have two snow blowers (one electric and one gasoline), ten different kinds of snow shovels, and now two Garant Poly Sleigh Shovels. This Poly Sleigh Shovel is what I use most often. After a windy night I sometimes look out to see several inches of snow blown over a ten foot section of driveway. This sleigh shovel slides it away quickly with minimum effort.
Never try to use any polymer shovel to break ice, use a steel spade or utility shovel, or a steel bar normally used for breaking asphalt. There are good long handle scrapers available that work as good as steel garden spades in some conditions.
Tip, if you might get several inches of snow, and you now have eight inches on the ground, do not wait till later to increase the size of dump area. Push this sleigh shovel in snow till full enough, then with front edge angled up slightly above snow, push it over the snow you want to pack (like your front yard). Also push a scoop full around to back door to pack a trail (much easier than shoveling). I hate it when I see a foot and a half of snow up against my back door and realize I cannot quickly use it in an emergency (storm door opens outward).
I also do this to pack a trail to my propane tank to check the propane level.
I do not in any way work for this company. I am a snow hobbyist and former cross country skier. I am a frustrated inventor that has been trying to make a better snow shovel for my snow conditions, and found this to be the absolute best to try to improve on. So far my only improvement has been to wrap electricians tape on top areas of handle. I normally wear light gloves and it really helps keep hands warm.

Looks good. Only steel strip not sent

I am surprised that the Steel wear strip was not inluded. The picture and description clearly show the strip is attached.

    Comments about Garant® 24in Poly Sleigh Snow Shovel (EPSS24):

    this shovel worked great! I'd used it on several 1-5 inch snows and because of it's scoop size I could go all the way across the driveway in one pass. Not possible with 18 inches of fairly heavy snow today, but by taking it half the width at a time, and pushing it up on top of the pile, it got the job done pretty quickly, with no back strain! If your driveway is sloped, going downhill makes things almost easy.

      Comments about Garant® 24in Poly Sleigh Snow Shovel (EPSS24):

      Yes, it actually has fun factor. I chose this as my birthday gift when I saw it in store.

      Have used it as a leaf scoop for fall cleanup - worked well for that, even though it is not it's primary function. The width worked well there.

      Just used it in the blizzard to deal with roughly 2 feet of snow. For that much snow, i was able to easily get down to driveway asphalt by taking the top foot or so off, pushing, it back, then clearing the remainder.

      Doing the sloped driveway was actually fun. I realized when working from the bottom to the top, that the shovel would slowly slide down the drive when filled with snow. So I could walk beside it, spin it around, etc. I managed to clear my drive as as fast as someone with a small snowblower.

      Comments about Garant® 24in Poly Sleigh Snow Shovel (EPSS24):

      I can't understand why everyone does not own one of these. Obviously you need to be relatively strong to push this thing when it's loaded. It makes cleaning up small amounts of snow a snap with no lifting. I just shove the snow off with push. I'm on my 3rd one of these in 10 years. The others had an aluminum blade that wore out quickly but now it has a steel blade that's much better. Nice product and well worth the cost.

          Absolutely LOVED this shovel for removing snow from our 60ft of walkway and double wide driveway. No bending and lifting is great. Unfortunately the metal strip fell off prior to this year's use and the plastic will not retain a flat surface. Be mindful of that metal strip (don't try to break up ice!) I will get another, but I will be much more careful.

                I purchashed this product on the recommendation of a co-working in early February, picked it up from my local Ace Hardware 2/13/15, and had the opportunity to use it 2/17/15 for the first significant snow fall of the season in the Washington, DC Metropolitan area. It performed beautifully saving my back. No more lifting snow to remove from my driveway, just push and tilt. Love the coating on the shovel that prevents snow and ice from sticking. Have sold two additional shovels to friends. Great product!!

                Removes snow twice as fast while saving your back, since you push and tip rather than lift and toss. A great idea and purchase. Highly recommended.

                    Love this shovel.Used to shovel 6 " snow off deck with no problem(was on deck for a couple weeks).Just used yesterday to shovel 4" off my Pap's driveway.Haven't used it on a heavy wet snow yet but I think it will work ok.It takes a little more effort to push it up over when the snow is already piled high on the sides of the driveway or sidewalk,but once you get the hang of it,it 's easier than using a standard shovel.

                      I am a 53 year old female living in Connecticut. My boyfriend from Canada gave me the 24" shovel. I have a small parking lot(8+ car) to clear, a handicapped ramp and corner lot sidewalk. This is great for placing the snow strategically where the sun can melt it faster. I never know when it will be snowing again. I just walk behind it and push the snow out of the way. I tip the handle so the "sleigh" glides over the snow and is dumped out. Sometimes I need to turn it over and tap the snow out(very minor issue). I have a snow blower that I only use when the snow is 9" or so and heavy. This shovel is quicker than the blower so I do less walking and I do not have to huff in fumes. I have many different shovels for different types of snow. This shovel makes shoveling "enjoyable" vs. back wrenching. I showed this to my brother in Massachusetts and he picked on up for himself. My only complaint is that the metal blade is pressed on, after a while the blade can catch on the end of my concrete ramp and can fall off. My boyfriend put screws through the blade and filed down the pointy ends. Also because I am shoveling on asphalt and concrete the blade wears down. I wish it could be replaced. Don't let that deter you I still have my first one I got used in 2008. They last a long time!! Did I say I love this thing???

                            Been shoveling snow for 50 years. This scoop changes every thing. Aside from eliminating throwing snow with a traditional shovel, with this you can move huge amounts of snow to where it will do some good when the melt comes in the spring. Mine is three season's old, and the steel leading edge wore off, but I've was able to fabricate another myself (wish Garant would sell replacement strips). Best bang for the snow shovel buck EVER!
                            PS - I also added pipe insulation to the handle for comfort and warmth

                              Two days after picking up the snow sleigh shovel at my local store, we received eight inches of snow. I was able to clear my driveway and walk in about 2/3 the time previously required using a pusher-type shovel. It was also easier because I didn't have to pick up and throw the snow at the end of the pavement. The handle is designed for two-handed use making it easier to supply force and leverage. I've only used it a couple of times so far, so I can't judge its durability, however, I am very satisfied that it works as advertised.

                                I live in the Tug Hill area East of Lake Ontario where 12+ feet of snow is average. I use this shovel on the ground but it's biggest value is in clearing off roofs. I've broken several regular shovels trying to clear depths of 4' to 5' from my roof. This shovel has the best strentgh and balance to clear big loads. The ability to rock back big loads of snow takes all the weight off your back. Once the load is balanced simply swing the shovel towards the end of the roof with very little effort. I don't know if I could live up here if I didn't find this shovel.

                                    I've used a sleigh shovel for 20 years. This new model moves more snow. The new handle design allows you to use your body to push heavy snow. This shovel is the best for manually moving snow.

                                    I have had this shovel over a year now. I live in NJ. We have gotten our share of snow lately. This shovel is by far the best snow shovel I have ever owned. You never have to pick it up. Once it is filled with snow, you just tilt it and take the snow to where ever you want. It can even go over little mounds. My back has never felt better after shoveling. I hate to shovel, but you do what you have to do. I also have a small manual snowblower and this shovel does the work in less time and effort.

                                        I was debating between this and the wheel shovel but didnt want to spend the extra 80 on the wheel. I am glad I saved the money as this performs extremely well and very easily. It takes no time at all to do a double drive 30 ft driveway. Can get down to the bare concrete if you get it early but otherwise will get real close to the concrete. I could not recommend more.

                                        IT WILL SAVE YOUR BACK. You can either tip snow off or give it a quick push and pull and the snow will slide off.

                                          I love this shovel!! I live with my BF and we have a snow blower but I don't like to start it and deal with it. This shovel sled go to the garage pick it up and it's ready to go! If I would have got this at the beging of the season my shoveling would be a breaze but I didn't get it till after I had about 2 inches of ice already built up on my driveway :(! This is by NO means an ice scraper, and it sometimes wants to be but when the bucket gets full of the ice it gets to heavy, so I try NOT to let that happen! I live in MI, and the date is 1/7/14 and we have been dumped on with snow! I am soooo glad I have this shovel! My neighbors snowblowers wont start in -40 wind chill, but no prob (other than all my layers) starting my shovel!!Granted I still use my old shovel for my steps!

                                              We haven't had much snow yet this winter, but I can tell you that this shovel clears light snow off the driveway far faster than any other shovel I've tried. No strain on the back either because there is no lifting required. A snow blower is probably quicker and easier when removing heavy snow, but it would be a good contest with light snow.

                                              It's hard to rate the durability since I've used the shovel very little so far. My son used it and also thought it worked well. He doesn't clear the driveway often, so if he's more apt to do so with this shovel then I really like it!

                                                  I have used this for a few weeks and it indeed does remove snow quickly and easily as advertised. I wish I would have bought one of these years ago. I will never go back to using a conventional shovel. I simply push the snow off the sidewalks and dump it on the lawn. Very easy. Very fast. No lifting. I am amazed more people do not know such a product exists. I cleared the side walks on my 9 unit building -- these total about 375 feet in length and are 5 feet wide -- very easily.

                                                  I really have not found anything negative about this product. I highly recommend it.

                                                      These shovels, also known as Yooper Scoopers, because they were invented in the U.P. of Michigan, are great for moving large amounts of snow easily. No lifting, just pushing and jerking back to dump the snow. I'm a 5'1" woman, and I manage quite well. This is my second one in about 6 years, the plastic of course will wear through eventually. I would like to try one made of aluminum, but haven't found one.

                                                          Oh my gosh, this snow sleigh is a back saver. Goodbye snow shovels. It really saves your back, especially with deep snowfall. You can actually pile the snow up WITHOUT LIFTING. Simply fill the sleigh, and when you reach a pile push down on the handle bars to raise the end and push the whole sleigh up onto the pile, then dump. It slides soooooo easily.

                                                          We get a lot of snow in Montana. Believe me, this sleigh is a back saver and time saver.

                                                              This thing is incredible, if you shovel your own driveway I can't recommend it enough. I usually only do the end of my driveway, just enough so I can get the car in. This time I did the whole drive, a pathway for the oil guy, and I re-did all the banks I made just to lower them. I did it all in half the time, you can move about 3 regular sized shovel fulls in one swoop, with no strain at all. The best part is I don't think I even used my back in the process, only a little more walking. I bought it mainly for my back, even though I work physical labor, shoveling always strained my back in weird spots, though this also saved time. Takes a minute to get the hang of it, but after that it's smooth sailing. Little expensive, but after the first driveway's done, you won't regret it.

                                                              The snow sleigh is a very efficient, labor and pain reducing snow removal tool, far better than a regular snow shovel or pusher. In one sweep, it picks up 3 or 4 times the amount of snow that these other devices can, but there is less or, at worse, no more strength required. I have found no lifting necessary while using this, and it is far easier to distribute the removed snow, thereby eliminating berms or walls of snow. When there has been built up snow at the peripheral margins of the area I was cleaning (left by others) I found it easy to climb by pushing down on the handle as I walked or ran (depending on my energy) the snow sleigh right over it. Once at the area where I want to leave the snow, I just abruptly stop while jerking the sleigh towards me. The snow then smoothly slides off of the sleigh. Finally, there are almost always large, heavy berms left in front of my driveway by our county's snow removal trucks. The snow sleigh handles them with relative ease, a task that would be daunting if using other manual tools.

                                                              This is my fourth snow sleigh purchased over a course of 14 years, and I am hard on them. I do not want to ever be without one. There are even conditions where the snow sleigh is considerably faster than using a snow blower, and I find the sleigh better at completely removing snow from the driveway and walkways, reducing or eliminating ice buildup.

                                                                  This shovel moves up to 100 lbs per load. I put gates in the uprights on my deck and NEVER lift snow from there. I have 500 sq ft of deck and it was a lot of work, but not with this baby. On the driveway, this shovel moves snow great. When I get to the end of the driveway, I push DOWN on the handle and push it up the bank. A sharp push at the end and the snow flies out. If needed, just turn it over. So you NEVER lift any snow. For the berm at the head of the driveway, where the plows pile up 3 ft of ice, this shovel is a dream. You push the shovel into the berm on the street side, pull it out with 100 lb load and slide it over the snowy street to its final resting place on either side of the driveway.

                                                                  I mention my wife because she has bad asthma, which makes it hard for her to exert esp in cold weather. She can use this shovel to clear the deck, driveway or berm, with very little effort and so little provocation of her asthma. This means that it is an easy job for her. I also took my shovel over to a female neighbor and her daughter during the last snow and let them use it. They are ordering two right then, after seeing how much easier it was than their two new conventional shovels.
                                                                  All the comments about why didn't I buy this shovel years ago are absolutely correct. Don't delay if you have to shovel snow. Get this shovel.
