Sometimes the right tool makes all the difference.
If you live in a snowy climate and you are looking for an upgrade to those common, cheap plastic snow shovels that last about a season, get the True Temper Industrial Grade Snow Pusher.
This is the right tool for quickly moving snow around. Especially the wet heavy snow that the snow blower cannot handle. Or maybe that light 1 – 2” where it might be faster than actually getting the snow blower out in the first place.
In the 30” size (it comes in 24″ and 36″ as well), the Pusher makes short work of the sidewalk and steps in one back and forth pass.
Also, as the name implies, it is not really a shovel. I actually don’t believe in “shoveling” snow. I am lazy. It is way more efficient to push snow, than lift snow. Think snow plow. So the end of this tool looks a lot more like a snow plow blade, than a shovel.
After a bit of research, I snagged mine, in store at Home Depot toward the start of the season last year. Totally worth it.
