They sell these dope ass snow squeegees now that are amazing for both windshields and car tops. They are extendable too. I got mine from Home Depot but they look like this - https://www.amazon.com/Snow-Joe-SJBLZD-JMB-SJB-Telescoping-Scraper/dp/B07B3LTX39/ref=sr_1_31?crid=ZVQC9LNKC84I&amp;keywords=snow+squeegee&amp;qid=1550800763&amp;s=gateway&amp;sprefix=snow+squ%2Caps%2C147&amp;sr=8-31
> Many idiots also didn't clear their roof.
Every year this comes up and every year there are people defending not removing snow from the roof, or even the windows, for reasons of just not wanting to or willfully ignoring the risks associated with it.
For the windows I've seen several people get indignant because they just don't want to put in the effort. Screw you because lazy.
For the roofs I've seen people say that they just can't reach so they refuse to try. People will then point out that long handle, telescoping snow brushes exist as do arched ones designed for the roof as well as snow brooms. Then the non roof clearing people just resort to insults and say that they're still not going to do it because fuck you.
You are absolutely correct. My preference is a medium shovel, a little wider and a little move curved than the one in the picture.
If the "snow" is heavy as hell slush, you can still move a bit. If it is light, it is no problem. If it is in between, which we call packing snow, it can curl it to produce a good log of snow that is easy to move.
This is the closest I can find:
There are better tools for specific situations, but that is a good single tool for most snow situations.
Definitely get an Ariens. Did a bunch of research before I bought mine. The common theme was that you buy Ariens when you want something that will do the job, and last.
And get a heavy duty one. Our snow being wet is rough on snowblowers. Look to spend around $1000 to $1200. And buy some silicone or teflon spray (like DuPont or SNO-Jet) while youre at it.
These ergonomic snow pushers are good all-rounders. (But they do make bigger ones and ones that have wheels.) Doesn't matter, you want a pusher. That's going to chew through all of your loose white fluffy and/or gray and wet snow. That's like half the winter at least, and the sooner you get out there after each snowfall the easier it'll be so you can even push into ice storm territory.
But up north you're going to want to get something like this or even one of these for when you've got to break up crusty stuff that the pusher's just skating over.
This is my favorite snow brush / scraper
I use one of these for light snowfall, it works pretty good.
Yes Amazon sells heated cable meant for de-icing house roof gutters for like $35.
Here is a 20' that might be perfect
I'm sure it could be rigged to a high voltage (line level) thermostat for baseboard heaters that would turn it on and off as needed.
And get a snow plow shovel
For the metro area you want a wider 'pusher' with more plow like action, for high altitudes with more deep snow, you want more of a narrow 'scooper' with a shorter handle.
Metal blade shovels, wheeled pushers, plastic shovels with a metal blade for ice, (anything with a gimmick) ALL suck
Below are typically what commercial snow removal guys use and they are worth the money. Keep them out of direct sun because the plastic will get brittle if you leave them out for a summer. otherwise these are a 'man's man' shovel, no frills, gimmicks, long lasting, and does the job right.
Sleigh shovel - You don't lift it so it's big and can clear driveways well. Low effort for high volume clearing.
Blade shovel - Less versatile than sleigh shovel and best for repeated clearings of flat areas. Good for commercial needs.
Classic shovel - For walkways and doorways. Get a mini one for your vehicle. Ow my back!
PS. homeowners probably also want to get a roof rake.

Seriously, shut up and take my money.
Edit: currently out of stock
The location where I believe the model number was is damaged and I cant read it. I can't for the life of me find my manual for it. I am going to look for something comparable online.
Sold as True Temper brand in the us (same company/product): https://smile.amazon.com/AMES-Companies-ABTT5212-Telescoping-Scratch-Free/dp/B06X1CQHGN/
I linked this in another comment, but this snow scraper/brush has been great for me the past 3 years. It has soft material on the wide end so it won't scratch your paint as you push the snow off the top, and has a telescoping handle.
Good idea...i have a craftsman 247.881731 snowblower and the closest i can find is this one from amazon, but it doesn't say model number, just craftsman. Do you think this will fit?
Nevermind, i found it on eBay. https://www.ebay.com/c/12026408781
It is a Tecumseh hm100 engine with this carburetor: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01D4CREYA/ref=cm_sw_r_sms_c_api_7UpGAbBE9ZKEH
Yep! I have one of these that I got from Target or somewhere like 5 years ago:
Really awesome for taking care of the hood/roof.
That's a really cool ice scraper, but I have a telescoping one and wouldn't trade it for anything, having the extra reach is pretty much essential at this point, especially when my car is up against a wall or a snow bank and I can only reach it from one side.
I live in upstate NY and Prestone De-Icer has helped me get to work on time on multiple occasions. It can take a while to get your car ready to drive during winter, so definitely get a good extending ice scraper like this one. Considering your budget, I'd focus on getting quality boots and long johns, then check out Goodwill for coats and other stuff to layer. They get surprisingly good stuff sometimes. Either way, sorry for your loss. That's brutal.
>>EDIT: I'm thinking about this bad boy and ditching the single stage. Eventually I'll get a two stage as everybody seems to love them.
No - THIS is what you want!
I shovel my entire driveway in about 1/4 the time someone could do it with a snow blower.
And this is why I never bought a shovel like this. Not only would they be heavy and hard to push when full, you're begging for a gut shot multiple times while cleaning your driveway.
The giant sleigh style with the big fuckoff scoop.
For when you absolutely positively want to get the hell back inside asap.
Catch: its shit on uneven surfaces.
I don't know much about this area, so after cursory attempt at research, I've got a couple questions since you seem to know it:
) is 15A at 120V... that comes to (15A 120V =) 1.8kW. A household dryer circuit is (30A 240V =) 7.2kW, so it'd easily drive that snowblower. Why does the direct calculation of wattage come out so differently from a horsepower-to-wattage conversion (750W/hp)?
He needs one of these. 48" wide, just like his mom's dildo.
