I have a 1990's version of this shovel and have about 18 years in with it. I have thrashed it using it to smash ice, shovel snow, break crust and even move gravel. It's not the lightest, but might be the strongest. This little fellow won't let you down.
Bought the newer version with the longer handle and built in snow saw and was impressed that the 2008 version is just as rugged with a better finish. Great product!
