    My neighbor has one of these and I am constantly borrowing it from him. I can clean off my driveway in half the time it takes with my metal blade push shovel. It is simply the best shovel I have ever used. Saw it at an NHL game where they used it to clean the ice too. I plan on using it to clean the snow off the ice of my backyard rink.

    I purchased this in the 24" style last fall for winter use. By the end of the winter the handle broke away from the handle. I could not repair it.

          Perfect for those aggravating 1/4" or 1/2" snow falls that turn into ice if not cleared. Too little to pull out the snow blower, but cleared easily and quickly with the 4 ft wide pusher.

              Comments about The Snowplow® 48in Wide Snow Shovel (50548-1):

              There are many advantages to this shovel. 1. Snow never accumulates at all to the blade! 2. The blade conforms to non-flat hard surfaces easily. 3. It's so well braced that its hard to imagine breaking it. Well Made!

              Con: doesn't come with the newer curved handles that reduce back bending. The newer handles put your left hand nearer the height of your right hand so your not dipping your left shoulder (I'm right handed). With that improvement this thing would approach perfection.
              I'd buy another just to get the perfect shovel as I have a big parking space and a lot of walkways on my lot.

                  I use this thing like a road grader -- I have a lot of concrete to clear and for lighter snows or small accumulations of heavy snow, this pusher is fantastic. Depending upon the snow, I will either clear the driveway completely, or push as much snow to one side as I can and finish it off with a snow thrower. Of course, with its wide blade, it will not work with deeper accumulations unless you're out there early and often. You can also turn it upside down and get little bits of ice off the concrete, too. Works great as a pusher -- you'll still need a shovel.

                    My driveway is on a hillside and this pusher is the nuts!
                    We haven't had any heavy snowfalls this winter,but so far so good.
                    After a few more uses,it will have payed for itself.
                    You need to judge the proper distance to 'lop off' the snow so that you're not stuck lifting.
                    I 'shoveled' my entire 50 yrd long driveway with turnaround area in about 20 minutes.
                    I'll pay a plow guy per visit if I need it for the heavy snow,which I'm sure we'll get.

                        I have a fairly long driveway and a snowblower, but prefer to shovel often rather than wait for 6" to accumulate. I also leave for work very early in the morning, so I feel guilty about firing up the snowblower at 4AM. With the 4-footer, I can clear the drive of 1-2 inches in 10 minutes with ease without disturbing the neighbors. So far it's been great - just wish it was half the price.

                              This is the best snow shovel that I own. I thought so much of it that I bought one for my son who lives in another community. He thinks that it is an great snow shovel also. I often use it in place of my snowblower as I can often do the double wide driveway faster. I don't think that you can go wrong with it, as it is durable and makes mince of packed snow where the vehicle enters the garage.

                                I bought this shovel since I have a huge driveway. I tried it when it snowed and it was much quicker to shovel the snow than the normal size. The shovel is great since it is extra wide. I would recommend to anyone who has a huge driveway.

                                    I just purchased this shovel and already it is way better than any other snow shovel I own. I love how wide it is; it makes shoveling go at least 3 times faster than with a normal shovel. Got it from Ace for [$] and while that seems steep, I think the time it will save me in the long run will more than pay for itself.

                                      Comments about The Snowplow® 48in Wide Snow Shovel (50548-1):

                                      My neighbor has one of these and I am constantly borrowing it from him. I can clean off my driveway in half the time it takes with my metal blade push shovel. It is simply the best shovel I have ever used. Saw it at an NHL game where they used it to clean the ice too. I plan on using it to clean the snow off the ice of my backyard rink.
