I used the shovel bit to pick/shovel away at a 2-3 foot mound of ice and it worked BEAUTIFULLY. This ice was solid as stone and had been sitting in front of a parking spot for three weeks still unmelted. When I got desperate for parking I finally decided to hack away at it and I fully expected the shovel to break with all the force I needed to hit that ice with but it held strong. Super useful too to have and compact enough it doesn’t take up too much trunk space.
This is the first and last snow removal tool we will use. It is an all in one, which I don't usually buy because one thing or another doesn't work well. All of the uses for this tool work - and it's a great emergency tool to have should you get stuck in the snow! Squeege also works well for cleaning windows! Well worth the price of supporting an American business and getting an excellent product in the bargain!
Love this thing, with the Polar Vortex we have gotten a lot of snow and ice here in Michigan!! The scrapper blasts through some ice. Better if the car has loosened it a smidge if it is layered on thick. The brush is very nice. I love the idea of having the emergency shovel for just in case moments. However, I wish I would have purchased the longer extending one instead because I feel like this one is still a little short. Still a wonderful product and seems like it will stand up in these harsh Northern Michigan winters.
The extender is a snap, the scraper has a great edge that clears the glass edge to edge, good brush, and I LOVE the squeegee! When gas station squeegees fail (and often), I use my superior one! Haven't had to use the shovel yet, but it's nice to have in case I need it. Keep the scoop and handle in the trunk if the need ever arises.
The material appears to be of good quality. So far only had light ice on windshield of 4x4 truck. The reach was great.
