Capper’s Farmer Gift Guide for the 2013 Holiday Season
While snow removal equipment like shovels and scrapers may not be the first idea folks think of as holiday gifts, they’re practical and useful, and therefore really are the perfect gift for anyone who has to shovel walkways or driveways or scrape windows on a vehicle.
True Temper makes a mean snow shovel called the Penguin SnoBoss, as well as a car scraper called the Penguin AutoBoss. Give the gift of both tools for an even more functional gift, and the gift recipient will certainly thank you for making his/her life easier this winter.
Built to last through even the most extreme conditions, the SnoBoss has a 26-inch high-capacity blade with steel wear strip that allows for the removal of more snow in less time and is constructed using only high-quality resins. Together, the blade and handle provide optimal design integrity and do so with no unwanted screws, nuts, rivets or edges. And it's even reversible. Just turn it over, and it's ideal for scraping tight areas like steps and porches. Nothing works harder, or more comfortably, to keep snow from getting in your way.
Other features of the SnoBoss include an aluminum handle, which is lightweight but very durable, two grips that allow for optimal hand placement and ergonomic shoveling, and a footstep that provides necessary leverage for heavier loads. Another great thing is that the SnoBoss is 50 percent lighter than a sleigh shovel. It sells for about $37, and can be ordered online by visiting http://www.amestruetemper.com/products/detail.aspx?ProductId=196&FamilyId=65&LineId=3
When you're out and about this winter, don't be caught in inclement weather unprepared! The AutoBoss' patent pending design is adjustable and clears snow from hard to reach places. It offers simple extension and retraction, multiple hand placement options, and its sleek, compact profile makes for easy storage. In fact, it's so lightweight and portable that you'll want to take it along on your next hiking or camping trip!
The AutoBoss features an adjustable poly blade and 150 square inches of blade clearance. It extends and locks into place for strength and durability, and its compact design makes it easy to store in the back seat or the trunk. It sells for about $13 and can also be ordered online, http://www.amestruetemper.com/products/detail.aspx?ProductId=216&FamilyId=653&LineId=3
