Got Ice? Get Ice Dozer


Once in a while a website states the case for what it's flogging so well I don't have to do a thing except sit back and enjoy it.

From the website:

    Ice Dozer Manhandles Ice and Snow From Your Windshield in Seconds - So You Can Start Your Day Without a De-Icing Debacle!

    The common ice scraper has a few flaws.

    Flimsy blades not tough enough for hard ice.

    Flat scraping edge that clears just a sliver, because it won't conform to the shape of curved windshields.

    And cheap handles that give no leverage.

    Other than that, they're perfect.

    Ice Dozer is big and rugged and won't be overmatched by thick snow or hard glaze ice.

    Apply pressure to the palm handle and the oversized blade flexes to match the curve of your windshield, clearing a 7" swath instead of a sliver of glass.

    Front plow pushes snow and ice ahead of you, away from sleeves and wrists.

    Two different sets of ice-cracking teeth pulverize the hardest glare ice in short order.

    And ergonomic handles give you all the grip you'll need to clear your windshield in no time, and have fun doing it!


Oversized blade, front plow, not one but two sets of ice–cracking teeth that pulverize ice, ergonomic handles — be still my heart.

And that breathtaking phrase: "a de–icing debacle."

That one's gonna be trotted out regularly this winter, tell you what.

Every year I have to buy a new ice scraper because the one I used last winter's cracked or broken or some such thing.

So let's give this puppy a road test here at bookofjoe World Headquarters (note the capitalization — that's new, and it's according to the bookofjoe Style Sheet, also new — and capitalized) this time around.

$19.95 here.

Good idea, but still a bit wimpy.

Some years back, I bought a plastic toy shovel: worked fine, no scratching. More recently, found an extending plastic-bladed shovel. Clears about a nine-inch swath per pass, and almost the whole way across.

Not too great with acual ice, though.
