I created this shovel through my passion for product development and the challenge of making products better – including a better snow shovel! While helping with my father’s commercial, snow-removal business, I wore out an old, ‘trusty’, plastic snow shovel.
I was unable to find a decent replacement. Everything I found was cheaply made using low-quality materials. While researching this product, I discovered I was not alone in my quest for a better snow shovel.
And, that is what sparked the idea. I needed a more reliable shovel and so did everyone else. Whether shoveling snow at your own house or for a professional, snow-removal company, you need better.
THE PROCESS BEHIND THE SHOVEL
First, the research and development: What were the biggest complaints about shoveling snow, and how can I address those complaints in my product?
In my research, I discovered two major issues that needed to be addressed:
- Poor quality – Shovels currently on the market easily break or crack.
- Backaches – Shoveling snow is not an easy task. With all of the bending and lifting it takes to remove snow, backaches and back strain happen frequently.
After hours of research and development, I started putting together a snow shovel design for a better snow shovel that made the most sense. My goal was simple, create great products that are tough, dependable and easy to use. And, offer them at reasonable prices.
HIGH QUALITY MATERIAL
After working in the plastics industry for almost a decade, I was able to utilize my vast knowledge of plastic to create an innovative snow shovel made of the best, high-quality material. This material is what makes the shovel strong enough to withstand cold temperatures and snow removal wear.
EASY ON THE BACK
Using push mowers growing up, led to the idea of the T handle. I designed a unique, patent-pending handle that gives users the option of pushing snow out of the way rather than scooping it to create an overall safe snow shoveling experience for the consumers.
The T handle promotes speed of use (reducing your clean-up time by up to 50%) and ease of use (the walk-behind and push feature prevents you from having to bend over to scoop up snow, creating less stress on your back and body) to overall ensure a safe snow removal experience.
My commitment to my customers is to provide only the very best snow removal products with unmatched quality.
