Someone must have hijacked that warm air on the way down. At 7 am it was 8!

Electric start, electric block heater, antifreeze heater and eight cylinders, it has no drive belts to freeze up and you'll never get bored with the job, as the 454 cubic inch big block Chevrolet V8 produces 412 horsepower, 430 foot pounds of torque and can throw snow 50 feet at just 3500 rpm.

As Tim Allen would say.....UUUURRRRR !!!!

Chap, the one I have isn't near as powerful as the one in your post. It doesn't have heated handles either, but even in single digit temps with wind chills below zero I stayed warm while using it. Best part, it only cost $20 at Lowe's!!!

Gary, is that a solar shovel for $20 bucks? buy 4 of them and attach them to the front of your truck and do your driveway, no need for heated handles, your truck would be warm......

Yeah Wade, I had a heck of time trying to figure out how to get it from an email picture to something that I could post.

Gary, I also have 1 of those manually operated snow removal tools that I need to use in conjunction with my snowblower, since I haven't figured out how to use the snowblower on steps. And until this year, that is all that I had. Honestly, I haven't really needed either this year..........lots of cold weather, but just a couple inches of snow a couple of times. I hope I don't have to use either snow removal system the rest of this winter.

Chap
I don't have any steps to deal with, but it's nice knowing that the one I've got will handle the job!

Wade,
I haven't checked it out close enough to see if it's solar or not, but I did notice it seemed to clear the snow faster when the sun was out!
It does seem a bit low powered and needs to re-charge every hour or so.
I could have used the 4 shovel method the past couple of weeks since I had to clear the driveway twice in as many weeks!

Gary, recharging my manually powered snow removal device seems to do best on high test.......Makers Mark, or Jack Daniels Old #7.

So if it needs to be recharged, then what are you doing, one or two of these

Chap & Wade,

I have tried Coors Light and Windsor Canadian, up to a charge 4 with each. It doesn't seem to make any difference. I still need to re-charge after an hour or so!
Maybe I need to test some other brands.

Gary, keep trying other stuff and let us know what works for now the heated handles are working nicely on my snow blower, it takes my mine off of the other cold parts.
