Speaking on Business: Shark Snow Shovel

The Shark Snow Shovel is designed to be two shovels in one, and it's made from plastic so it doesn't tear up decks or other softer surfaces.

If you’re stuck on figuring out a fun Christmas gift, why not think about giving someone a Shark Snow Shovel? Shane Swanger created his award-winning product out of need. As the blade on his snow shovel wore down to the point it created teeth, Shane discovered how much more effective it was in moving packed snow. He also found out that it was his and his wife Heather’s favorite shovel, so they knew they were on to something. With his engineering background, he started experimenting.

His inspiration with the Shark Snow Shovel is that it’s designed to be two shovels in one, made from plastic so it doesn’t tear up decks or other softer surfaces. One blade removes areas of hard-packed snow and the other is a standard straight-blade snow shovel. The blades can be changed easily with a brilliant built-in swivel mechanism.

Shane took the Shark Snow Shovel to a national hardware and tool show in Las Vegas and out of 30,000 products, the Shark Snow Shovel became one of 30 products chosen as a future best-seller by a panel of experts. With the patent in place since 2015, the Shark Snow Shovel is taking off, and you can find it in Smith’s Food, IFA and select WalMarts in Utah and other states and on Amazon.
