  • Ames Ergo Snow Shovel, Save your back snow shoveling.

    Feb 12, 2007 by popsrocks is a Top Reviewer on Epinions in Home and Garden
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: The shovels crooked handle keeps the back more vertical to the ground.
    Cons: Off balance loads feel wobbly.

    Summary: I picked up an Ames (True Temper) Ergo Snow shovel because I didn't like the way I previously picked up snow. It was a pain. This shovel helps one keep the back more erect and with less stress and therefor less back ache. Does it work? Yes! ... read more

  • Comparing 2 Ames TrueTemper Snow Shovels

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Sturdy--blade/handle. Shovels well. D-handle grip. Metal stem. Takes abuse. Assembled in USA.
    Cons: Not as good for snow pushing. Needs more room for storage.

    Summary: Two years ago we bought two snow shovels--an Ames TrueTemper Arctic Blast with an ergonomic (bent) handle (probably model no. 1627100) and an Ames TrueTemper Klondike (model no. 1574600) with a straight handle. Describing the ... read more

  • Labelled "Ames Ergo Concept The lightest snow shovel you'll ever use"

    Mar 6, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Outstanding work angle of the handle Extreme light weight
    Cons: Poly wear edge - though it has lasted about 10 years so far

    Summary: Purchased several years ago, on impulse, and have never regretted it. This model has a poly scoop w/POLY wear edge rivetted to the front of the blade; and a tubular ALUMINUM bent handle; and with an (adjustable position) foam cushion grip midway down ... read more

  • Another dumb idea from these manufacturers.

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Might make pushing snow a little easier.
    Cons: Makes lifting snow harder. Dangerous to the back because of awkward twisting.

    Summary: The bent handle idea was invented back in the 20's and manufacturers didn't want it. They recognized it actually made shoveling harder. It's benefits are an illusion. If twisting causes you back problems you should be aware that this shovel is ... read more

  • I never used a better snow shovel.

    Feb 1, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Light weight, Durable blade, Excellent engineering.
    Cons: None

    Summary: The main feature of this snow shovel is the offset handle, which allows anyone who would consider shoveling snow to do it with very little bending at the waist. The Ames Ergo Shovel has a metal edge riveted to the plastic scoop which holds the scoop ... read more

  • Best shovel for a bad back

    Aug 27, 2009 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Less strain on the lower back and less lost shovel loads. Excellent for tall folks.
    Cons: Deep snows mean one would have to lift the shovel higher. 

    Summary: The articulated arm drop sets a limit to the rotation angle applied to the handle when a load is off center. Yes, the torque against the handle is greater BUT the resulting angle is far less which means much less of a chance the ... read more

  • Best Shovel you will ever own

    Pros: lightweight, glides, no backache
    Cons: can't find it in any of the stores in my area

    Summary: This shovel is remarkable. It is lightweight, and glides along the concrete. As an older widowed woman I find this shovel so easy to use and it causes me no backache. I bought it on a fluke because of it's unusual design and it is the best purchase I ... read more
