I've seen them on youtube. search for "wovel"
I haven't used one and probably wont. They seem a little gimmicky to me, like a $20 shovel with a supposed $140 wheel attached...

Someone is taking advantage of the snow situation. They come out of the woodwork for every catastrophe.

What a contraption. See below (from the Wovel site).



It brings to mind one of these:

____________________________
1989 Bolens 5210 R 21" - 5 hp 2 stage -- Impeller kit worked wonders
1983 Honda single stage -- HS 35 single stage -- still going strong

Costco used to sell them up here in Canada at some point, I believe. A friend of my parents' swore by this thing and he lived up on a mountain with tons of snow... he praised his little wheely shovel so much that they almost bought one themselves. Almost.

In the end, they got a new 2-stage Ariens snowblower and I think that's a very wise choice. The guy recommending it was one of those granola-eating "save-the-baby-seals-and-stop-global-warming" nut jobs anyway, so his opinion of this thing was skewed at best, lol!

(for those who voted Obama and are confused, you can't stop global warming: the sun is getting hotter and no fire hose is long enough to put it out, no matter how much we tax carbon!)



What's next? A snow plow attached to this "eco-friendly" thing? :
