They did use 10 pound bags to demonstrate how it would work on heavy, wet snow.

You need to keep a shovel in your car...........a snowblower won't fit.

Many times I had to shovel myself out of my parking space after work (!!)

I thought the same thing. I want to see heavy, wet snow on it. I don't think it

will be able to handle it. It will break or the snow will still be on the shovel. Can't wait to see the reviews.

If it means anything...amazon has five reviews on this shovel and they're all 5-stars.

WOW!! I just watched the presentation and it looks great.  I have shoulder problems when I shovel and this shovel looks like it would help a lo by redistributing the weight.  It also would eliminate knee issues because you would not need to lift with the knees bent to handle the load.  I don't shovel much anymore because of asthma but it might also help that as a lot of heavy lifting is a trigger for me and it should lessen the force needed to lift the shovel.  I would get it if I did more shoveling like I used to.

I still think the gadget to push snow off your car with lights on it wins for ridiculousness.  If it has batteries, how about some warmth??   A little heat, heck with the lights.

This TSV has to be one of the most ridiculous things QVC has offered.  The guy hunches over with the 'standard' shovel and stands upright with his 'special' shovel.  He could just as easily stand upright with the old fashioned one.  When Rick demonstrated the TSV he was hunched over with it.  What a rip off.  Hope nobody falls for this advertising.

@software,

Yes, and those amazon reviewers were probably given some "extra incentives", besides a free shovel,  for submitting their reviews. rolling eyes.gif

I would still rather see actual snow, but I'm a skeptic by nature.😺

I watched a presentation with Dan this morning and they were shoveling real snow. To me the shovel looked like it does not pick up and hold a lot of snow so seems it would be time consuming if you had a lot of snow. The shovel I use is deep and picks up quite a bit in one scoop. But some may find this too heavy. The TSV might work if you can't lift much weight.
