The shovel is very, very study with a firm grip handle.
It is well built and rugged but the handle is way to short! If you are over 5'4" you will have a problem with
the length of the handle. When I attempted to shovel snow after maybe 6 strokes my back was done! You have to almost get on your knees to shovel without stringing your back. They need to make one with an extended handle for people over 5'5.
