I Wanted to Make Snow-Shoveling Easier With a Greenworks Battery-Powered Snow Shovel!

I have written about my switch from gas-powered to battery-powered lawn equipment. It seemed like time to make the change, and I settled upon Greenwork’s line of equipment.

I must say, I got a ton of use from every piece of equipment I bought. Along the way, I added additional batteries for “peace of mind.” I have a fear of running out of power. With that, you need to make sure you have spare chargers. I believe I have six batteries and three chargers at the time of this writing. It is also essential to state that these are 40V batteries, so I must keep them consistent as they are interchangeable amongst all devices.

The natural progression was to add snow removal to my battery-powered arsenal. I am uncertain how I happened upon the Greenworks battery-powered snow shovel, but it was discounted, and I snatched it up. Greenworks has a snow thrower available, but I wanted to walk before running. (I also am not ready to get rid of my beast of a snow thrower, but give me time.)

It has a 12″ cleaning path, shares the same 40V battery all of my other equipment uses, and has loads of power. I didn’t know what to expect when using it, but the concept was simple enough. Push this relatively long device like a shovel, ensuring the power is engaged. It immediately eats into the snow and propels it 10 feet in the air in front of you.

You have to plan your attack when shoveling your driveway. The snow will get emitted at a fair distance; if it is windy, you must account for the blowback. We received 3 to 4 inches of snow this past week, and the unit made a short order of the snow.

Quick Observations:

  1. This unit is pretty heavy. While you do not have to account for snow lifting as this will blow or propel it directly in front of you, you must account for the unit’s weight. You must lift, push, or drag the unit and maneuver accordingly. This can prove to be a workout on its own.

  2. I love the power this unit has. I also love that I will use all the batteries throughout the winter. Using these batteries rather than letting them freeze in the garage is best.

  3. As with any shovel, watch out for driveway/sidewalk cracks.

  4. There is no directing left or right of the snow, so you must plan as you would with a shovel. (See helpful illustration below)
