Want to avoid the pain and pollution associated with snow removal this winter? Try out the Sno Wovel, a newfangled snow shovel with wheels.
The made-in-the-America Sno Wovel was named one of TIME’s “Best Inventions of 2006,” is Popular Mechanics-approved, and is recognized by Green Americafor its eco-friendliness so it’s not a gizmo released by some sketchy, fly-by-night operation that you might see hawked late at night on cable TV. Additionally, the University of Massachusetts commissioned an independent study to see how much more user-friendly the Sno Wovel is compared to regular snow shovels. The findings? Using a Sno Wovel reduces physical exertion by as much as 75 to 80 percent compared to using a snow shovel and makes the laborious snow removal process a whole lot quicker.
