I found this to be a pretty good snow pusher for the price. The handle is comfortable, and long enough not to be a "back-breaker" for a 6 ft. tall shoveler. The last pusher I had was 18" wide, without the metal strip at the end. I thought this new purchase would be better, having a wider "sweep", which worked out better for my needs. However, I find that the metal strip, while good in one respect, prevents "flex", like my old pusher had, and leaves a small strip of snow through the middle of the shovel.
I thought this was a steel snow shovel. I did not know steel core was just a little piece of metal at the end of the plastic. I had bought one from ******* and it broke. I am returning this before I use it.
This is more of a pusher than a shovel. It works well on stairs and other small places. It is very light weight and easy to use.
This snow pusher requires no lifting so is great for all ages. Have one for the driveway and sidewalk and a second shovel for the deck. Perfect for up to 6 inches of snow on the deck. I use the snowblower for 3+ inches on the driveway and sidewalk.
