I don't have a feel for what 14 gauge is, and I don't know how thick
these "cheap' ones are.
Don't know what floating would be.
What's ergonomic about it? It's a handle. There are lots of things
with handles that long.
Wheels might help if the sidewalk is in uneven sections, because you
could raise the edge a bit and not ram the thing into the higher
section. I have to remember to lift my shovel, although it's easy to
remember after I hit the cement five seconds earlier.
I think you still have to wear gloves.
They wouldn't recommend it for 8 inches?. They just chose 6 because
that't the maximum their target market expects. People who get more
snow are more ready to buy something more expensive.
Whenever an ad says "compare at" I don't like it. It doesn't mean
that the items that cost 70 are no better. They may well be a lot
better. It just suggests you compare them. They had to change to
this terminology, because when they used to say, "As good as items
thayt cost 70", they got in trouble, I'm pretty sure. FTC etc.
I think that is what they would say.
I'll tell you this. We used to have a 120 foot driveway. I only
shoveled where the tires went. Why waste time shoveling the whole
Now I live in a townhouse in Baltimore. My neighbors shovel every
square inch of the spot they park in. It's wierd. I shovel a minimal

to leave. I've leveled down the snow. And I carry a shovel in my

If you live where it generally snows over 100 inches of snow each season,
you can't do that. The person said he's in Buffalo. He gets a lot of Lake

The lake snow is filled with water and easly turns to ice (on the ground).
If you haven't lived near the Great Lakes you won't understand how much it
snows. It snows so much we have to use a roof rake,too.
That's a good idea you have for where it doesn't snow too much.
Time to save those pennies and buy a snowblower.
New or used depends on your budget. If you live in Albany all these
years and dont have one by now... How did you get rid of it before?
If you've been shovling snow manually (while living up there) you

If you got some left over cash a nice atv with a plow blade would
