Granted that’s debatable, and will depend on the snowblower in question, but the fact that the Snow Wolf Wheeled Snow Shovel features a large wheel at the fulcrum means that you’ll be able to manually lift large swaths of snow in one motion. Much larger swaths than you’d normally be able to manage if you had your arms alone to do the lifting, anyway. The wide shovel (26 in.) means each pass clears more snow, and the manufacturer claims a 3X improvement on regular shovelling, with less lower back pain and exertion. Also, no noise or gas fumes like your average blower. The wheel, frame and tire are warrantied for life, so you won’t feel so bad spending the $106 asking price. You know big snow is on the way, so now’s as good a time as any to get this.
