Yardworks Sleigh Shovel, 22-in
I have returned this Sleigh Shovel every year after just a few snowfalls. It has cracked every time and since it comes with a 5-year warranty (with receipt), I just bring it back and get a new one. I suggest using a sturdier plastic for the scoop, or perhaps a metal of some sort.

Just had like 20cms of wet snow dumped on my driveway. I got a double car driveway and WOW. I started the first day with my conventional shovel, shoveled and hours and half and got one space done. My back was hurting and my shoulders was hurting. So I looked up on the internet to see what is the easiest way to shovel. Found a video of a gentleman who lived in Maine and he was recommending a sleigh shovel. I just went to Canadian Tire on my way to work to pick it up. Fit in my car nicely. I got home at around 9 and started shoveling around 9:03. I was done within 20 min shoveling the second spot and even took an extra 15min to shovel the snow bank courtesy of our municipality. Worked great and it was so easy. I can't wait for our next snowfall.

mine is 10 years old,so might be made better than the new ones. if your in a hurry it does the job. i use my snow blower most of the time, but if you find the snowplows blocked your driveway after finishing the job its a quick way to remove the embankment left by your friendly city workers.like most have said you push and slide to remove snow no lifting .

Great for the back!
I love this sleigh shovel. I had never needed to shovel a driveway before I bought my house. I first picked up a little shovel, I found it was hard on the back and very tiresome. This is a wonderful tool. I have a 100 ft driveway and this makes the job go by much quicker. We have had this shovel for 3 seasons and are still happy.
My only advice would be, to handle the product first. I am 5'8" and the sleight is the perfect height for me to use. My husband is 6'2" and he has to stoop over quiet a bit. So for him, he would pass.
-Metal handle becomes very cold, very fast.
-You will need an ice chopper to break up snow banks first.
-Shovel height maybe to short for some people.
-Sleigh is narrow enough to make the load of snow manageable, even if it is wet.
-Easy dump motion instead of the lifting and throwing.
-My driveway was done in only 1/2 hour by myself instead of the 1 1/2 hours of 2 traditional shovels with 2 young healthy adults.

u r using it wrong
if you are trying to flip it u are using it incorrectly.
the idea is to push it to fill scoop
push down on handle to move scoop to dump spot
then push it forward with a quick pull back to dump the load. no need to flip or lift anything.
Weight of scoop and snow will gradually pack downthe 'path to the dumping spot

Move a lot of snow with less effort
I purchased this during last winter and this product is so much better than common shovels; it moves snow by pushing instead of lifting it. I was able to move a large amount of snow with less effort (comparatively). Clearly a good buy.

This shovel is great when we get lots of snow, light and very easy to use. Only complaint is that a piece broke out of the corner not long after buying it guess not good with ice

Moves big amounts of snow
I can't or won't try to lift large scoops of snow, my back has objected more than once. With this shovel I find I can handle a large amount of snow and just push (or even pull) it and then flip it to dump out. No lifring required! It makes what can be an overwelming job manageable.

Light work out of heavy snow
This product acts as a sled for mounds of snow. No lifting required, just some pulling and flipping.
