Rated 4 out of 5 by Turlington1 Worked Surprisingly Well
I have to admit I had serious doubts about this product. There are a lot of parts that have to be put together. The upper and lower poles gave me a fit because of the wiring that runs through them (reason for 4 stars). It took me an hour. I would suggest that the company re-work the product so that there are not so many parts that have to be put together.
With that said, I just got through the blizzard of 2016 with about 23 inches of snow. This machine performed like a champ. I have to admit I really put it through a workout that it probably wasn't designed for but it was able to handle clearing a foot of snow at a time. I was shocked! We had it outside for about 3 hours intermittently, and used it to clear the sidewalk and our parking space. I have an electric snow blower but I used the Earthwise snow shovel to clear off the top of the snow because the electric snow blower was too heavy.
Bottom line: The cordless convenience is worth the price of admission. I thought this would be a return but it's staying. I have more than gotten my money's worth out of this product. It performed beyond my expectations.
Rated 5 out of 5 by SnobReport Work Great For Me.
Tried it in the 1/23/16 blizzard and worked well so in a regular snow storm it would work great. Easy to put together and like I said it worked well with at least a foot of snow. Not sure what the other reviewers where talking about but than again some would say the hope diamond was not good enough. For the price and size it works great.

I spent so much time putting this together only to discover it did not work!!!

Tried this shovel for the first time on 2 inches of light, fluffy snow. It blew out very little and I ended up pushing most of the snow out of the way. I kept walking slower and slower and "shoveling" narrower and narrower paths. By the time I got down to a two inch path, my hand hurt so bad from holding the trigger that I gave up. I can't see how this would handle snow that's eight inches deep as the demonstration states. It's not worth the money.
Rated 3 out of 5 by melamie Great Product But...
Bought this Snow Shovel for my husband.He loved it until he hit a small rock and broke the plastic blade.
If this shovel was not completely plastic and the blades were not so susceptible breakage, it would definitely have been a 5 star product.
