Snowplowing Wheelchair

February 16, 2010 at 8:17 am 3 comments

Bill has a power wheelchair that, to my delight, allows him to mow the lawn.  It also has a hitch on the back, and with a bit of ingenuity, he created an attachment to the hitch to thatch the lawn as well.  

In this power wheelchair he can position a shovel in front and push it along to help with shoveling the snow, but turning the power wheelchair into a snowplow?  Check out this video and tell me what you think…..necessity is the mother of invention and I think we may have a snow plow before the end of winter!

    That’s amazing! I love the idea. I’m sure it offers a great sense of accomplishment and achievement being able to blow not only for himself but for others. I like when people take charge and create something useful like that.
