Move More Than Just Snow
Fall has arrived and the to-do list is growing longer by the day. In addition to moving snow, did you know the PushAll™ provides multiple uses around your property? Thanks to the straight-edged blade you can use the PushAll to help you clean up debris such as leaves, apples, and pine cones from your yard in the fall. Move mulch into garden beds in the spring to give your yard a refreshed look, or move gravel into barren areas. For those who own livestock, consider using the PushAll to muck out waste from stalls or feed bins.
Finding ergonomic tools is essential because they can help you avoid injury and pain. We’d like to remind you that our unique design uses your body’s core strength to move materials, rather than requiring you to lift with your knees or bend your back.
Regardless of what tool you use to complete your chores, it’s important to make sure you maintain proper posture while doing them.
Safety is important, so exercise caution when working with tools and heavy materials.
Tips from the US Product Safety Commission
According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, about 230,000 people each year are treated in hospital emergency rooms for injuries relating to lawn and garden work. Your well being matters to others, and you matter to us.
Take Your Time - many outdoor chores can increase your heart rate. Make sure you pace yourself when completing tasks.
Dress appropriately for the work environment; wear sturdy shoes with slip-resistant rubber soles; wear eye protection; wear heavy gloves when changing, sharpening, or cleaning blades; wear hearing protection when using motor-driven equipment.
Be sure that safety devices on the equipment are in place and functioning properly before starting work.
Be sure power tools are turned off and made inoperable if they must be left unattended.
Never work with electric power tools in wet or damp conditions.
