- Snow shoveling is a physical exercise and we strongly recommend you warm up and stretch your muscles prior to starting shoveling, as you would do with any other activity in order to prevent injuries.
- Remember, each full shovel of snow can weigh some 20 pounds (9kg) according to the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP).
- Use the proper shoveling technique. Be sure not to overload the shovel. If you have to lift, bend your knees and lift with your legs (not your back!) and avoid twisting or throwing snow over your shoulder.
- Take breaks. Every 15 minutes or so, stand up straight, walk around, and drink water to avoid dehydration and overheating.
- Listen to your body. Pay attention to your body’s signals, such as pains, shortness of breath, or chest discomfort. If you feel uncomfortable please call a doctor/ physician immediately.
- Don’t shovel: everyone, especially men and woman over the age of 45, who is not physically active, who visits doctors frequently, or has a history of a hart condition let some else do the shoveling.
- The edges of the blades of the Snowvel can be sharp. Take notice of the pins and please be careful when assembling or dismounting the snow shovel.
Neither we nor any other party (whether or not involved in producing, maintaining or delivering the Snowvel), shall be liable or responsible for any kind of damage that may result to you or a third party as a result of your or their use of the Snowvel.
