My house is one of four homes on a very small private street. Since we're responsible for our own snow removal, we co-own a large snow blower and take turns clearing the street. My three neighbors also use the blower to clear their driveways. As for myself, I don't particularly like the loud, polluting blower. Since I've always looked at shoveling as excellent exercise, I would typically reach for the shovel to handle my own driveway.
Although I'm pretty fit, I do suffer from occasional acute lower back episodes. For this reason, my wife picked up a Wovel as a holiday gift for me last season.
The first time I used it, I was amazed at how large a swath of 8" deep snow I could clear with a single scoop. I estimated at that time that the volume of snow I was clearing with one Wovel scoop was equivalent to around 5 scoops of a normal shovel. The factors that make this possible: 1.) the shovel portion of the Wovel is huge; 2.) the lever action of the Wovel allows you to lift and toss *a lot* of weight with minimal effort. The combined effect is that the shovel portion of the Wovel, which is large to begin with, can be used to lift and toss a pile of snow that is not just wide, but is also piled much higher than you would ever attempt with a conventional shovel.
I've seen some reviewers state that the Wovel is more effective than a snow blower. In my opinion, this depends on the snow blower in question, the area you're clearing and the snow conditions.
The street I have to clear is several hundred feet long.Read more ›
The Wovel makes for fast, easy and efficient removal of snow. I can clear my drive faster with the Wovel than my neighbors can using their snow blowers (and it seems that they work harder trying, wrestling their snow blowers!). The folding design of the Sno Wovel is wonderful! It only takes a minute for me to disassemble and hang on my garage wall (so it also saves floor space over a snow blower). It works so well that I've started letting my 6 year old daughter clear away light snow (1-2").
While clearing some snow I hit a patch of ice, that unfortunately has chipped a 2" chunk out of the middle of the shovel. This has also caused a 2-3" vertical crack. I would definitely recommend buying the available wear strip, which in my opinion should have been included with the shovel by the manufacturer. Very disappointingly, Structured Solutions II does not sell any accessories on Amazon so I would have incurred additional shipping costs buying the accessories from a different vendor (which I should have done, because I now have to buy a new shovel blade & a wear strip). I'm sure that there is some reason that the Wovel uses a plastic shovel (cost?), but a metal option would have been nice (at least that's how I'm feeling right now, looking at my broken shovel head).
1. Buy the accessory Wear Strip. You'll be glad you did. **
2. Buy the accessory Ice Blade.
3. After you get your Wovel, put it together right away. Assembly can take a little while, so don't wait to put it together when you actually need it.
** UPDATE: As Mark N has pointed out on 12/15/2014, the Wear Strip is now included in the standard Wovel Package.
My driveway is exceptionally large - about 650 feet long. 10% is 2.5 cars wide, 15% is 2 cars wide, and the rest is about 1-1.5 car wide. I live in Rochester, New York, which receives more than its fair of snow. I'm a first time home buyer and this was my first winter in my new home. I already made the investment of a (needed) riding mower and wanted to do whatever it took to avoid having to care for another engine in the garage. A snowblower would be a last resort.
My friends thought I was absolutely crazy. So did my family. Frankly, after watching me, my neighbors probably did too. If any of of those things would bother you, the Wovel probably isn't for you. This is for individuals who are willing to make decisions for themselves and not to impress others.
With all of that said, I think the size of my driveway is about the maximum of what this puppy can handle in a Northern climate. I'm 29 years old, in decent physical condition, and have a fair amount of will power when it comes to manual labor. Is the Wovel easier than shoveling? I cannot emphasize enough how great this simple mechanical advantage helps! Is it faster than a snowblower, as others have claimed? Well, that depends! My neighbor has a similar size driveway, is 70 years old, and has a midrange gas powered snowblower. Some things I've learned:
-When the snowfall is 1-2", I think the Wovel IS faster.Read more ›
