Amazon Sales for This Back Strain-Reducing Snow Shovel Went Up Nearly 700% in the Past 24 Hours

East Coasters are currently in the middle of snowstorm Orlena, and the lyrics, "Since there's no place to go, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow" have never felt quite so accurate. The storm is predicted to deliver up to 2 inches of snow per hour depending on your location, and while staying indoors under a heated blanket sounds preferable, you may need to brave the elements. If you must head out the door, be sure you're prepared with the Amazon-favorite Snow Joe Shovelution shovel.

In the last 24 hours, the innovative shovel has jumped in sales on Amazon by 673 percent — no doubt due to the storm, but it's also likely that shoppers are jumping on the chance to get it on sale right now for 33 percent less. People who own it (some of whom call the tool a "godsend") love the shovel's two-handle design that minimizes back, shoulder, and neck pain.

The key to this is the shovel's spring-assisted smaller handle that gives the user leverage when lifting heavy snow, allowing them to evenly distribute their labor instead of transferring all their weight onto one area of their body. The shovel also promotes better posture because the user doesn't need to bend over as much while clearing out their driveway or sidewalks. Customers love this feature because it's a "major back saver." 

Snowstorms of Orlena's caliber require consistent maintenance to prevent your walkway or driveway from turning into an ice skating rink, shoveling every few hours instead of letting the snow pile up. Luckily, shoppers say the Snow Joe shovel can help you "shovel three times as much snow with this with three times less back pain."

"Semi-old" customers in particular are praising the ergonomic and lightweight tool — as one put it, it's "a lifesaver for this arthritic senior with a cranky back." One 60-year-old reviewer writes, "These bad boys are a TOTAL back saver!! I've ordered five of them. I've shoveled several hundred pounds of the white stuff myself, and I gotta tell ya, I will NEVER use a 'regular' snow shovel again!" This reviewer also notes that the shovel would be great for "young bucks," too. 

With winter snowstorms in the forecast, there's no better time to buy the Snow Joe Shovelution shovel on sale at Amazon.
