I’ve never seen you excited to go shovel the driveway. What’s gotten into you? Oh, I know, it must be the Snow Joe snow power shovel you just got. Yeah, I guess it might be fun when it’s not back-breaking work!
A power shovel for snow is an electric or gas-assisted snow removal tool. It looks like a shovel, but functions to throw snow like a small snowblower. You’ll still need to push it, as it’s not self-driving, but no longer do you have to lift and throw heavy snow off walkways.
A snow power shovel is worth it for anyone who battles the white stuff year after year!
Move over Florida snowbirds, we’re here to talk about the snow power shovel. That’s right, if you live in one of the snowiest places, you’re probably tired of shoveling, sore backs, and being out in the cold. If so, then this shovel is worth it for you!
See, a snow power shovel is like your regular shovel, with the addition of a mini snowblower integrated into it. This particular Snow Joe model has a 10” wide shovel that’s great for decks, sidewalks, walkways, and even stair clearing.
This electric power shovel is entirely cordless, operating off a 24V rechargeable battery. On a full charge, that gets you about 24 minutes of use. I know, I thought that sounded like not very much too. However, this powerful device can clear 100 sq ft in about 4 minutes!
That’s right. You’ll be back inside sipping on your hot cocoa before your toes even get cold. The auger only handles about 6” depth of snow at a time. In really bad storms this may mean several trips out to keep up with things (though that’s true of most snow blowers). Oh well, more warm drinks for me!
Like a snowblower, the two-blade paddle system is capable of launching your snow up to 20 feet! No more creating giant, impenetrable walls of snow. That’s great, as the last time I tried to throw snow over my head, I put my back out.
How much does a power shovel cost?
On average, a power shovel will cost between $80 and $200. The range depends on the width and depth the auger covers, the type of fuel used, and how far it throws snow.
Sure, it’s more than a regular plastic snow shovel will run you. However, it saves you both time and strain in clearing snow. If you’re walking in a winter wonderland regularly, you’re going to think it’s worth it.
Note that this Snow Joe doesn’t come with the battery and charging station. Why? Well, it uses a 24V cordless battery that you might already have for your other lawn and power tools.
If not, no big deal, as you can get a battery and charger combo pack to get you started on your way to power shoveling glory!
