I personally like the "Garant Yukon Ergo G4 4-Way Snow Shovel" that you can buy from Lowes home improvement store. It allows you to do four things with the snow shovel and it cost round the same price as the other snow shovel. The best thing about it is that t reduces the stress on my body when shoveling snow outside during the winter.
Here are the four features of the snow shovel:
- Multi-purpose shovel ideal for pushing, shoveling, cleaning, and scraping snow
- One-piece, ergonomic, lightweight, aluminum, multi-grip handle
- Foot step and heavy-duty steel wear strip for added strength
- Reversible to clean tight areas and spaces
Although this snow shovel may not have the best review on the internet but if you know how to use the shovel properly, then you will realise that it actually is a great tool to use. When shoveling snow, you must hold the snow shovel with both hands and use your body weight to push the snow shovel. If your snow shovel gets stuck, then you can use your right or left foot to step on the lower ledges of the shovel and push it with your legs. Your legs will be doing most of the work which reduces the stress on your arms.
However, once you have pushed the snow where you want it to be, you then use a smaller plastic snow shovel to scoop the snow onto your lawn. do not try to use the above Garant Yukon blue snow shovel because they tend to scoop up too much snow and makes it heavy to lift the shovel. Doing so, would give you pain on your shoulders and back.
