The Sno Wovel

Sno Wovel Image

Description: The SNO WOVEL, the world’s first and only wheeled snow shovel. The SNO WOVEL revolutionizes snow removal in the most basic way: while traditional shoveling involves dead lifting of snow at the end of a long stick—exaggerating its weight with pretty much the back doing all the work, the SNO WOVEL takes an ancient principle—the LEVER—and combines it with the WHEEL to reduce the process to 1, 2, 3: scoop, lift, throw. With vastly reduced effort, “wovelers” can throw snow without twisting or lifting. The SNO WOVEL has been homeowner tested, doctor approved and award-winning. An independent study performed by University of Massachusetts Biomedical Engineering Professor Bryan Buchholz, PhD stated, “The most obvious conclusion from this study is that the SNO WOVEL significantly reduces the risk of low back pain and injury. Both the results from the biomechanical model and the subjective ratings support this finding.”
