SHOVEL SMARTER, NOT HARDER! Time to toss out the old shovels; back-breaking winter-weather cleanups are a thing of the past with the Snow Joe SJ-SHLV01 Shovelution 18-Inch strain-reducing Snow Shovel – the next generation in snow-clearing technology. Snow Joe's strain-reducing solution greatly reduces the effort, strain and potential injury involved in shoveling, using the powerful muscles of your upper body to do the lifting and throwing, and sending lifting leverage to the lower hand – to reduce back strain by up to 30%. Plus, Snow Joe's spring-loaded, ergonomic shovel grip captures the expended energy from the act of throwing the snow, to quickly return and reset the shovel, ready for the next load. Patent Pending. 2-Year Full Warranty.
Back Saver but……
From the picture the main handle looked like it was adjustable for height with that wing nut midway, it’s not. Glad I’m not much taller, otherwise I would have to bend over anyways to use this shovel while holding both D-handles. Seems well built for the most part (made in China if that matters) and does make it easier on my back. Time will tell how tough the aluminum metal edge will stay on plastic shovel edge though, being there’s no sturdy rivets attaching that. It’s just pressed on with 5 small dimples into metal, only on one side, to hold it onto the plastic shovel edge. Hmmm….
Fantastic Twist to the conventional snow shovel!!
These bad boys are a TOTAL back saver!! I’ve ordered five of them… I have a crew of four up on the roof of our motel clearing off over 3′ of snow (on a 300 ft. run of roof!!) and THEY love them too. I’ve shoveled several hundred pounds of the white stuff myself, and I gotta tell ya, I will NEVER use a “regular” snow shovel again! Having that extra handle is a God-Send!! If you’re [semi] old 🙂 like me (60) or a young buck that just needs something that will fling the snow WAY out of the way – GET YOURSELF one or more of these! You’ll LOVE it!!
I just used this shovel to clear the first snow of the year here in New York, and I loved it! We got two inches, followed by some rain, so the snow was very heavy. I’m a tall guy and most shovels force me to bend over, leading to a sore back. I’m happy to say that my back feels great compared to other shovels that I have used, and I finished the job faster than usual. The springiness makes it easier to throw the snow farther, and helps you to control the shovel as you reset to scoop again. My elderly neighbor set down his cane to give it a try, and he was able to lift and throw the heavy snow!
Great shovel – improvement on lower back strain
I was skeptical. But this really is helpful on the lower back. You can nearly stand vertically while tossing the snow. The only thing it’s not great at is chipping away at any packed down snow. Would recommend.
Two handles = easier than one
Saves me from bending over for snow. Tosses snow easily (6′ or more, couldn’t do that with the old shovel). I’m over 6′ and have to bend down slightly with the short handle on the Snow Joe. Much less than the older shovel. Metal piece on the bottom helps scrape the patio and solid walkways. Also, pushes into wind packed snow pretty well. If you’re working with brick-like snow drifts, try slicing from the top and scooping out at a near 90 degree angle to the ground. Forget trying to lift out pieces of it until you break through the brick-like snow.
Best snow shovel ever
Bought this shovel at the end of last winter, but never got the chance to try it out. Yesterday we had our first snow, so I went out with my new shovel and I LOVE IT!
Snow Joe SJ-SHLV01
I used this shovel to clear out a driveway covered with 10″ of snow. It was more of a good cardio workout than backbreaking labor thanks to that 2nd handle. The aluminum edge is sharp enough to cut through crusty snow, but it’s not dangerously sharp like a sword or anything. It seems to glide well over ice and concrete without being too snaggy or clingy. The bolt and wingnut on the main handle allow for disassembly, but not length adjustment. My digital bath scale says it weighs about 3.6 lbs. This is a well designed and well built product made of premium materials. I believe it will last for many seasons.
50" tall will also help
The smaller handle is not a pole, it’s like an aluminum or steel strip. So I don’t know how long lasting it will be. Haven’t used it yet because it’s 9 degrees F. But I do see how it will minimize stooping over when there isn’t enough snow to use a snow blower (under 4 inches). From bottom of the shovel blade to the top of the large handle, it is 50″ tall which also will help. The shovel surface is 18″ x 13 1/2″.
