Low Stress Wheeled Snow Shovel

by Charlie Nardozzi


Snow and cold is engulfing much of the country this year. While it’s great to hire someone to plow your driveway and walkways, for “do-it-yourselvers” shoveling snow actually can be a good form of exercise. However, the tools and techniques we use often puts a strain on our hearts and backs. Now comes a new back-saving snow shovel that makes moving snow easier and safer.

The Sno Wovel snow shovel is ergonomically designed to reduce back strain and heart stress. The Sno Wovel has a metal snow shovel blade attached to a 3-foot-tall metal wheel. The handlebars are chest-high, reducing the need for bending. You can adjust the handlebars to fit your height. By simply pushing the wheel the snow accumulates in the blade. By snapping the handlebars down, the Sno Wovel throws the snow with little effort. University of Massachusetts researchers tested this tool and said it cleared snow 3 times faster than a conventional snow shovel and reduced the risk of heart and back problems.
