This (Crack Jumper shovel – formerly branded SafeGuard – SNO1001 24-inch Combo Pusher Snow Shovel) was one of the more unique shovel designs that we tested, and overall, I was impressed. The first feature that most of the other shovels lacked was the ability to change the handle based on your height. I set the handle to my height range and found it remarkably comfortable for a straight-handled shovel. I was able to plow better and lift easier than with most of the others.

It also features smart track safety blades, small plastic protrusions designed to absorb and deflect the impact of hitting objects buried in the snow. When you hit a crack or a curb, instead of the handle smashing into your stomach, the shovel tilts forward without hurting you…

Those who have bought and used the Crack Jumper Snow Shovel talk highly of its safety, comfort, and effectiveness. P. Dougherty, a satisfied customer had this to say: “I love my Crack Jumper Snow Shovel; easy on the back, easily moves snow, close contact with the sidewalk.”
