This is How You Shovel Snow
craig smith of milwaukee, wisconsin, made a snowplow that he can drive with a modified bicycle:
a lever pulls up or lets down the plow with a rope and pulley. pulling the lever all the way back cantilevers the rope and pivot point so it locks in place. the plow blade is hinged with a bungee cord, so hitting a discrepancy in the road allows the blade to flop and give like a real plow. the bike can turn on a dime so raising the plow and returning up the adjacent path is quick and easy. i can do ‘reverse’ by pushing down on the front wheel with my foot to roll it backwards.totally useless with larger snow falls, but the light ones make snow removal fun.
