safety tip for snow removal , Masi polar ergonomic adjustable snow shovel pusher February 3, 2019 01:00 10 Comments

A shovel is an absolute must if you live in an area that gets its share of snowfall every winter. An ergonomic snow shovel is the type of shovel because it protects the back from potential harm. When using this type of snow shovel it is not necessary to lift, twist or even bend the body. It is recommended that you keep your back as straight as possible as you scoop the snow. Do the same when lifting the shovel and dumping the snow in a designated spot. Here are some other benefits of ergonomic shovels:  There is no lifting with the Masi polar Plus snow pusher shovel with a deep 33 inch scoop.

Bent Handle and Lightweight Design

An ergonomic snow shovel has a bent handle which does the work for you. Ergonomic shovels are lightweight and made of aluminum.

Shoveling Safety

Safety in shoveling is one of the greatest benefits of ergonomic shovels. You are limited in how much snow you can pick up, so the potential for injury is greatly reduced. The scoop is smaller than other types of shovels, which means that you can lift a moderate portion of snow at a time and therefore will not expend too much energy at once. 

Height Adjustable

The handle on an ergonomic snow shovel is adjustable for your height. It can work just as well for a right handed person as a left handed person. When put into the shorter position it can be put away for easy storage.

In The Bleak Mid-winter: 10 Tips for Safe Snow Shoveling

Tips for Safe Snow Shoveling

  • Tip # 1.
    If you experience pain of any kind, stop immediately and seek assistance.

  • Tip # 2.
    Choose a snow shovel that is right for you!
    • Be sure that your shovel has a curved handle, as this enables you to keep your back straighter when shoveling.
    • Obtain a shovel with an appropriate length handle. The length is correct when you can slightly bend your knees, flex your back 10 degrees or less, and hold the shovel comfortably in your hands at the start of the "shoveling stroke".
    • A plastic shovel blade will generally be lighter than a metal one, thus putting less strain on your spine.
    • Sometimes, a smaller blade is better than a larger blade. Although a small blade can't shovel as much, it avoids the risk of trying to pick up a too heavy pile of snow with a larger blade.

  • Tip # 3.
    Push the snow, do not lift it. Pushing puts far less strain on the spine than lifting.

  • Tip # 4.
    Be sure your muscles are warm before you start shoveling. Cold, tight muscles are more likely to sprain or strain than warm, relaxed muscles.

  • Tip # 5.
    When you grip the shovel, make sure your hands are at least 12 inches apart. By creating distance between your hands, you increase your leverage and reduce the strain on your body.

  • Tip # 6.
    Your shoveling technique is very important. The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons recommends: "If you must lift the snow, lift it properly. Squat with your legs apart, knees bent and back straight. Lift with your legs. Do not bend at the waist. Scoop small amounts of snow into the shovel and walk to where you want to dump it. Holding a shovel of snow with your arms outstretched puts too much weight on your spine. Never remove deep snow all at once; do it piecemeal. Shovel and inch or two; then take another inch off. Rest and repeat if necessary." In addition to these comments, remember to move your feet rather than twisting.

  • Tip # 7.
    Never throw snow over your shoulder.

  • Tip # 8.
    Remember that wet snow can be very heavy. One full shovel load can weigh as much as 25 pounds.

  • Tip # 9.
    Pace yourself by taking frequent breaks to gently stretch your back, arms and legs.

  • Tip #10.
    Consider buying a snow-blower. When used correctly, a snow-blower will put far less strain on your back than snow shoveling.

By following these tips, you are far less likely to be injured while shoveling snow.also, use a Masi polar plus snow pusher from Finland since there is no lifting and has an ergonomic and adjustable handle and scoop.

The new product was launched successfully and already in the 1980s, in Finland, the "light, durable and easy gliding" Masi snow pusher shovels superseded its competitors made of reinforced plastic or steel sheet. Also our competitors began to use this tried and true material. But Masi moved on and, alongside the basic Masi 80 snow pusher, we developed a larger Pro model with a shaving edge as well as a smaller Masi 60 model. Updated versions of all these models are still included in our selection.
