New tools can take the backache out of snow removal

In this undated photo provided by HARO, a man uses a Snow Joe snow broom with an ice scraper on the window shield of a car covered in snow. The tool can easily push heavy, wet snow off a car hood or can be used on a roof without scraping the paint. The handle extends up to 49 inches, giving the user maximum reach without back strain.
