About

  • Stresses the body lifting 5 - 10 pounds each lift
  • Adds up to 100s even 1000s of pounds of snow on the average driveway
  • Leads to 1000s of visits to hospitals each year 
    There are all sorts of snow shovels out there with curved, bent, extended and angled handles that claim to make snow shoveling easier. But one important aspect of all other shovels is no matter what position the handles, they still leave the ground and the entire weight is still being lifted and thrown by you.
    ( The Easy Throw Shovel maintains contact with the ground throughout the lifting process.)
  • Optimizes your energy
  • Lifts and throws as you push
  • Lightens the work load
  • Removes snow faster and easier
  • Reduces body strain and fatigue
The only snow shovel that actually reduces the amount of weight being lifted by you. With its patented lifting mechanism you push, lift and throw snow in one smooth energy optimizing motion. All while never leaving the ground
You will never have to support all the weight with your back again.

By use of a lifting mechanism that physically lifts the load as you push, it becoming a fulcrum point for the shovel to pivot atop. these actions all work together in a smooth lifting and throwing motion.

Risks and challenges

The risks and challenges when launching a new project can often come unexpectedly but we are confident in our timeline and with the suppliers and manufacturers we have chosen.

Our biggest timeline challenge may come from ourselves, as we will not cut corners or skimp on quality to rush this product out. Our first commitment is to having a durable and reliable product. A product people are glad they bought.

Our goal is that we, Kickstarter, and all the backers can be proud they had a part in making this product a reality.

If you have any questions, please ask. I will be happy to answer them.
