We love our "Snowplow" Shovels. they are smooth and really are well built, price may seem kindof high, but itís worth it.

I bought a few 'Snow Plow' push shovels and some 'Dominator's' and all my guys absolutely love them. They are all holding up great and we are on our 13th storm this winter. 

We are at a college and have to deal with students packing down the snow on the walks and these shovels really do a great job scraping the hard snow from the foot traffic. They are as advertised.

We had one and I thought it was stupid then it got stuck in my truck somehow and I used it, gave it back and went and bought one for myself lol. Definitely buying 3 or 4 more next year for the shoveling crew. Absolutely worth the money.

Just ordered some more 30" Snowplows, love these shovels! Hopefully there won't be any more fighting over shovels at 2am... http://www.plowsite.com/images/smilies/smile.gif Also spring for a few of the new dominators and will let you guys know what I think once I get them. If they're made anything like the pushers, they'll be a winner! http://www.plowsite.com/images/smilies/thumbsup.gif

Just chiming in to be added to the list of happy customers. These shovels are sensational! I can't imagine anyone not being happy with them. The price is expensive compared to other shovels, but truthfully, there is no comparison. And you will quickly see that more expensive doesn't always mean more costly. Based on my personal experience with them and from feed back from my sidewalk crew members they are a 10 on a scale of 1 to 10, and a must have!

Snowplow Shovels are the Cats A$$. We have multiples of everyone they sell. I don't regret buying any of them.

It's an investment. Just think how many fewer shovelers you would have to employ if you had them using quality equipment versus those throw-away pieces of crap you've been wasting your money on. We cut an easy 20% off our sidewalk times with these shovels, they allow the guys to work smarter, not harder. http://www.plowsite.com/images/smilies/thumbsup.gif

i feel like there is a reason why a shovel, has assumed the name of an object, that affixes to your truck to do work. 
because, THEY DO WORK!

If those are the ones with yellow handles and white poly blades then yes they are worth it. We use the 36" and I think the bigger ones are 42" or 48" I cant remember.

You have obviously never used one, they are not throw aways, going on 4 years with a couple with nothing replaced on them. If it does get worn or a part breaks you replace that part instead of replacing the entire shovel. I also grab a couple cheapies each year and they are completely junk by mid-season.

So you can buy cheapies 2-3 times EVERY year or buy one good one that will last several years.

Well said! I love the snowplow shovels, the guys love them, they're an all around great shovel for pushing. We use some cheapies for the lift and throw stuff, but 90% of the work gets done with the snowplow shovels.

The 30" are just about the perfect size, the 24" works good too. My main sidewalk crew also has a 36", they love it for the light fluffy stuff, but it gets too heavy to push if the snow is heavy. Regardless of the size you choose, they're worth every penny.

The only issue we've had is the handles breaking, they crack right at the screw that holds them on. 2 handles have been replaced at no cost by the manufacturer, the rest won't crack due to improvements I've made to them. What I've done on all of ours is pull the screw out and drill a 1/4" hole all the way through, then square off the hole on one side for a 1/4 SS carriage bolt, and put a lock nut on the other side. Last step is to grind smooth the extra length of carriage bolt sticking out of the lock nut so they don't catch on gloves or hands. So far so good, that's my only minor complaint. http://www.plowsite.com/images/smilies/thumbsup.gif

Best shovels you can buy. They send the snow flying, nothing sticks, you can break up ice, the blade does not wear down, the shovels don't break- I promise you won't be disappointed. Buy one and done.

If you do any snow clearing with shovels, thier really is nothing that comes close to comparing.

They are actually CHEAPER than the useless ones. Until you own some, you will not understand.


DEALER TESTIMONIAL


CUSTOMER THANK YOU, TESTIMONIAL, AND VIDEO

Please read the following testimonial which was generously offered by one of our top retailers. It is our honor to work with dedicated people who put their customers needs first, respect their vendors and in return run a great business. Since becoming a dealer in the 2000-2001 season the Settergren family has sold over 5000 shovels including over 750 in the 2009 season. This is achieved through two locations and unmatched dedication. Thank you, Mark, Dave, Bob, and allÖ

------

I would love to write a testimonial for such a great product. We've been selling the shovels for 6 years now, and we've sold thousands. It took a little bit of time to figure out how to sell them, but once all of the employees had them and used them at home and at the store, it was much easier to sell because we all loved them. We have a store model that we've been using for the whole six years, and it is still in good working condition, which helps us sell them because it demonstrates how well they last. We use our store demo models to show customers how well it works and to demonstrate the blade strength and how you can turn them over and scrape with them. Once the shovel is in the customer's hand, they pretty much sell themselves. We tell them the facts, how they last forever, that every part is replaceable, then help them figure out what size is best for them. I would say that 90% of the customers in our store that buy shovels buy one of these. When the customer gets the shovel home, they love it, they tell their neighbors, and then the neighbors make a special trip to our store just to buy our shovels. Then they get it home and fall in love with it, then come back and buy a different size. Every contractor uses these because they know that they are the best, most have every size of them. Even contractors have a tough time wearing them out. The only time we don't sell it is when the customer is looking for a pick-up-and-throw style shovel. We have never had any customer return one, or even say they aren't satisfied with them. The best way to sum up the shovel is you have to sell a couple, then the word gets out about them and you sell tons. We've been on the news more than once because of how great these shovels are. If you need anything else let me know, i'm happy to help you.
