Who thought this was a good idea?

I had an old Suncast Power Blade for several years before the blade broke on some ice and I loved it. I bought two new ones through the True Value website. True Value put 3 different stickers on the back of the shovel blade that were annoying but came off pretty easily with mineral spirits. But the large sticker Suncast put right on the face of the blade is applied with an adhesive that will not budge unless you use a very fast solvent that also just happens to melt the plastic. Living in Maine I can tell you that snow shoveling is all about getting all the snow off your shovel when you pitch it (thus reducing the weight), and getting all the snow off depends on how smooth and non-stick the face of your blade is. So it is particularly disappointing to have to deal with this particularly badly applied sticker that apparently no one thought about when they made the decision to use it.
Also, the metal wear strip that used to be riveted to the front edge of the blade is now nylon. Does it seem like a good idea to chunk into a bunch of ice with a nylon edge? These are the last Suncast products I will ever buy.
Pros: light, great handle construction
Cons: impossible to remove sticker on face of blade, nylon wear strip instead of steel
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Exceptionally Effective Snow Shovel

I live in Massachusetts and so have extensive snow removal experience. I have used many different shovels, and the Suncast Power Blade solves several problems common with other shovels: 1. The Suncast Power Blade pushes or plows snow easily like many other shovels, but is also designed to effectively lift and throw snow. 2. The Suncast Power Blade is remarkably lightweight while being very sturdy. The shaft is thicker than a typical shovel which makes it much easier to grip. 3. The Suncast Power Blade stands up to regular use with no visible signs of wear. If my first Power Blade had not been stolen, I would have had no reason to purchase a second.
This snow shovel works so well that I actually get excited to go outside to shovel. I have never said that about any other shovel.
