The Snow Wolf almost looks like a good idea at first glance. Until you realize the shovel is made of plastic, which means it’ll break when you hit ice or a bump in the pavement (several reviewers have noted this.) The wheel is not pre-assembled, which means you have to put the wheel together by hand, including the process of pushing a long strip of rubber into an uneven plastic rim. There are 97 pieces in all you have to assemble, in fact. And it costs a lot more than a snow shovel should.
