Living in Ottawa with winter coming I'm sure many folks are debating the merits of shovel vs. snowblower vs. snow removal service.
Having had a snow removal service destroy the front of my lawn last year, my debate was between shovel vs. snowblower.
Definitely more calories burned shoveling, but it was quite time consuming, and for folks with pre-existing heart disease, it can be quite dangerous.
Enter the Wovel. It's like a shovel on steroids. The manufacturer says it's 3x faster than a shovel and half the effort.
Sounds like a fair trade to me.
