Snow Plow Trike

January 2nd, 2011 [print] Go to comments

I shovel hand by snow.  Although it wears on my back, it’s great exercise, and the cheapest method of removing snow.  But what if there was a way to combine tedious winter work, with something I’d prefer to be doing, like riding my bike?

Craig Smith, of Milwaukee, WI, does just that, with a custom-made trike with snow plow attachment.  He says it only works during lighter snowfall, but even so, it sure beats doing it with a manual shovel.

If you’re looking for something a little simpler, check out the Sno Wovel on Amazon.  It features a handle bar and front wheel, but lacks pedals and derailers.
