I received this as a christmas gift from my daughter. She bought it to save my back. Unfortunately this was a mistake. First, the nuts to hold the parts together were not threaded so I couldn't assemble it. Then the wheels wobbled to bad to use. The company sent me washers to take up the slack. I used it today and i was wondering why I kept needing to bend over. The more I used it the more I had to bend over. I thought it was something loose and I had assembled it wrong. NOT!!! The main handle bar was bending as it reaches resistance from the snow. As you push it, the bar deflects, until it bends, then it kinks. At that point it bends very easily and before you know it, you body is bent way down because the handle bar is bent over. What a waist of money and time. So now I'm back to the shovel. For all the great reviews, I wonder how many times they used it before submitting the review and what they actually did with the product. This is a great example of bad, bad quality. Avoid this product. And Home Depot needs to stop selling this junk!
This product was very frustrating in many ways. First, some of the small pieces (screws, etc.) were missing. They were sent to me quickly after I called the company. Then, when I tried to put the first part of the handle to the snow plow part, the 2nd screw would not go into the handle. It seems it did not line up correctly. The company then sent me another part to replace that handle part. It took some doing, but I finally got those pieces put together. The directions are not clear, and in one place, incorrect. In two places you're told to screw in a self-tapping screw, but in both instances, the screw holes do not line up. It took me two frustrating hours to put this all together. NEVER AGAIN!
Cons: hard to put together., directions not clear., some screw holes do not line up.
Bought this as a gift for our grandson (11 years old). He loved it! Thought it would be fun as he has tried to plow snow in his driveway with small toy trucks but they always break. This gives him a real tool to accomplish his objective. Seems to do a good job. I was leery of it at first because the blade is attached to the handle with two screws but so far through two snow storms it has stayed together.
Bought this shovel for my husband for Christmas. We have a very long and steep driveway, which can make shoveling snow quite the task. Just used it for the first time last week and could not be more pleased. It takes all of the stress out of clearing the driveway. Not having to bend over or lift the shovel itself is definitely a "back saver!" I don't know yet how it will perform with a heavy snow, since this was only an inch or so.
This product is great for removing a nuisance snowfall quickly and easily. I had a little trouble assembling it, but the company rep responded to my question immediately and attached some very helpful photos.
