EGO Snow Shovel Attachment Makes Light Clearing More Convenient

When we think of snow cleanup, we usually envision heavy accumulation and towering drifts. But what about lighter snowfalls on decks, patios, and porch steps? Take it from us. Based in the northern Mid-Atlantic, we get our fair share of snow, and one thing we know is that light coatings can turn icy overnight. So, the best solution is to avoid this altogether–clear these layers before they freeze! One tool that might assist you is the EGO Snow Blower Shovel (MSS1203).

EGO Snow Blower Shovel Performance


Most people are familiar with the larger snow blowers that throw the white stuff dozens of yards, but a manageable shovel-like version such as the MSS1203 isn’t as well known. Powered snow shovels fill that gap between big and small jobs. Indeed, for the smaller tasks mentioned in our introduction, you’re probably wasting time and energy hauling the big guns out of your garage or shed.

Powering the MSS1203 is a brushless motor fed by a 56V (4.0Ah) ARC lithium battery. And this model has some oomph. It can actually keep up with its big siblings, tossing the snow upwards of 25 feet.

  • Battery: 56V (4.0Ah)
  • Brushless motor

So, how does this EGO Snow Blower Shovel perform?

According to our staff, clearing 3 inches of light, powdery snow from a deck and driveway was really easy. Understandably, it requires a bit more effort with 5 to 6 inches, yet it can still handle it. In other words, don’t rely on it quite to the extent that you might a large single- or two-stage snow blower.

EGO claims that this snow blower shovel will clear 4 inches of snow from a 4-car driveway. Our staff tested it in 5 inches of snow, along with a layer of ice. By the time they finished, they still had one bar left.

EGO Snow Blower Shovel Design

The MSS1203 has some really nice design features. For instance, there’s a hard plastic auger, a brushless motor (already mentioned), and guiding fins. However, these things also add weight. With the battery attached, you’re looking at a hair under 30 pounds.

Still, this tool has a lot to offer, namely compatibility. The EGO snow blower shovel’s power head is compatible with all EGO multi-head attachments.

What’s more, the MSS1203 has a variable speed trigger, which gives you enhanced control.

The Bottom Line

Based on our staff’s tests, the EGO Snow Shovel Blower demonstrated respectable performance on sidewalks, decks, and patios.

Likewise, it has the power, quality, and features that define EGO’s fleet of cordless products. Therefore, when snow blankets your outdoor spaces, you can easily clean them up with this tool.
