Snow Shovel Reviews

by Tested_to_Destruction

A winter snow shovel is an awesome tool to have to hand when the snow hits. The five best snow shovels compared and reviewed.

When is comes to the winter season, a snow shovel is as handy to have a round as a snow blower - and both are a highly recommended buy. A blower is great for larger areas, whilst a good quality shovel is best for clearing small areas or for keeping in the trunk of the car or the back of the truck.

They're available in a variety of sizes and materials, the plastic snow shovel being the most inexpensive as well as the most popular type. That said - if you live in an area where winter brings a good dose of ice as well as snow, a metal shovel is the better choice.

The five best snow shovels are featured below. Each one makes the best sellers list, deliver high on quality as well as great value for money overall.

Sno Brum Original Snow Removal Tool with Telescoping Handle

Ok so this isn't exactly a true snow shovel for the path and driveway but - it is the best selling in the category. A what a cool tool it really is. This is the one you use for clearing the snow from your car, your hot tub or anywhere that requires the removal of snow without marring and scratching the surface area.

Most of us drive and need to get out to work, despite the winter weather - and this inexpensive car snow shovel is a hugely innovative tool. Manufactured from a polyethylene foam, it's molded in a way that prevents scratching plus it's robust and resistant to freezing up when you need it the most. The handle is telescopic, up to 46" in length, and it's able to deal with heavy snow fall and the wet and slushy kind. An awesome buy and currently on offer at a great discount price.

Ames True Temper 1518000 Penguin Collapsible Emergency Snow Shovel

This is the best collapsible snow shovel and one for either keeping at home or in the car. The handle drops through into the base, so it's a snap to stow in the trunk. Great for winter snowfall emergencies and definitely one for relying on when you need a shovel in a tight spot. The handle pops out at the touch of a button and it's sturdy enough to shift snow without too much effort.

The handle is aluminum, which makes for a strong, robust shovel - plus it won't tarnish everything it touches due to the fact that it won't rust when wet. It's pretty lightweight overall yet feels like a comparable non-folding shovel when in use. Durable, user-friendly and under twenty bucks - one to buy for the trunk of the car.

Suncast SC3250 18-Inch Snow Shovel/Pusher Combo with Ergonomic Shaped Handle And Wear Strip, Green

This is the best true snow shovel for using around the home. A great alternative to the more expensive snow blowers - chiefly because it's inexpensive, robust and though more labor intensive it does get the job done. The manufacturer is a sturdy - the handle is a ribbed steel core which is where its strength comes from

The blade is a generous 18" wide and the steel edge that runs along the blade combines with the width to give an awesome snow-shifting capacity. The ergonomic shape of the handle is a definite back saver as it removes the need for the usual back-bending that comes with snow shovelling. A great all-rounder, a steal of a deal at under twenty dollars - highly recommended.

Suncast SF1850 22-Inch Big Scoop Snow Shovel with Wear Strip

This is the best - by far - scoop snow shovel on the market. The extremely generous 22" x 28" scoop is simply awesome. There's a steel edge along the blade for added durability and the handle design allows you to almost push the snow off the path and driveway. The handle length is 60" - which makes the position roughly around waist height for the average individual. This is a part of what makes this one an effective snow pusher, as well as a scoop.

You simply push the blade in the snow, using your hands to guide it and your body weight to push. The scoop itself is a polyethylene manufacture, which helps when it comes to offloading the snow as you move along. A great shovel, innovative, useful and cheap enough to warrant investing in. You won't be disappointed.

Garant APP36KU Alpine 36-Inch Poly Blade Extra Wide Snow Pusher Black Steel Handle, Yellow

This is the best stand alone snow shovel pusher and one of the best rated on the market. It's great for removing larger areas of snowfall and the design makes it easy for pushing the snow off the surface you're clearing. The blade if polyethylene, again this makes for easier work overall as the shovel readily drops the snow off when loaded.

The handle is a good length, user friendly enough to make pushing with your body weight less labor intensive than the usual 'lift and throw' method. It cuts a good path and once you're into a rhythm, it's almost like using a snow blower - only with the added effort a plastic snow shovel brings. It doesn't catch on the ground the way a metal shovel will and off course it's relatively lightweight. A quality winter snow tool, well worth the discount price and best for those in areas of high snowfall.
