The new EGO Power+ cordless snow shovel is designed for clearing smaller spaces, such as driveways, sidewalks, and decks.
It is an attachment for EGO’s Power+ Multi-Head tool system, which featuring a power handle with quick-disconnect shaft that can be equipped with different tool heads such as this one.
It’s not as large or powerful as a full-sized snow blower, but it can be more efficient and less fatifuing than using a manual shovel.
EGO says that their cordless shovel can clear 6” of snow on a 4-car driveway with the included 4.0Ah ARC Lithium battery.
EGO sent over a sample (thank you!), and I passed it along to a long-term tester who will be putting it through whatever this winter throws at us, but not before being able to test it a bit first.
In my brief experience during last winter’s final snowfall, it did a good job of cleaning light snow. I just know that, the first time we get a couple of inches of snow this year, I’ll regret passing it along.
The beauty of the EGO cordless shovel, in my opinion, is that it can clear snow with less manual effort, and like a compact snow shovel, you can stow it away in a coat closet or similar between seasons.
