Solar-Powered I-Shovel Automatically Removes Snow

January 26th, 2009 by  


If you liked Husqvarna’s robotic solar hybrid lawnmower, then you’ll love its winter companion: the I-Shovel. This patent-pending device automatically detects snow accumulation and can clear a 4,000 square foot driveway on a single battery charge.


The product’s website is a little fuzzy on details about how long it takes to charge its battery, but more information should be available closer to the I-Shovel’s release date next year.
