Life Saving Alternatives for Shoveling Snow

Do-Cuts’ Power Equipment Warehouse stresses the need for caution when shoveling snow


Warren, OH -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/15/2015 -- For those with heart conditions or other chronic health problems, snow shoveling may be a hazardous endeavor; even life threatening. The risk factors should be assessed with wisdom and caution when considering whether to get the shovel out, or to find a less exhaustive alternative.

The Cleveland Clinic Heart & Vascular Team advises against shoveling if you are:

- Older
- Have heart disease
- Have chronic pulmonary disease or other chronic diseases

"People who have coronary artery disease should not perform strenuous shoveling of snow. It can trigger a heart attack," says A. Marc Gillinov, MD, a cardiovascular surgeon at Cleveland Clinic.

While there are of course no health care professionals on staff at Do-Cut's Power Equipment Warehouse, they can attest to the fact that snow throwers reduce the level of exertion involved in clearing snow. Exertion levels can be further reduced with an electric start feature, since pulling the starter cord might actually be the most labor intensive aspect of using a snow thrower.

For those who live in areas with heavy snowfall, two stage snow throwers are self-propelled and can handle a great deal of snow easily and almost effortlessly. All of the two stage snow thrower models sold by Do-Cut (Honda and TORO), include an electric start and trigger style brake steering, thus facilitating minimal effort when turning.

Parts for Honda, TORO, MTD and Husqvarna snow throwers are also available at Do-Cut's Power Equipment Warehouse.
