Default A rope saves your back when shoveling snow?

My wife sent me this video link..

EASIEST, SAFEST WAY TO SHOVEL ANYTHING.
No bending your back. No aching back. No chiropractor.
This is how I shovel, when I need to. "

We have these back-support bands that we use when shoveling snow..
They kinda work, but not that well.. Plus discomfort gets worse the longer it's on..

I had to shovel the other morning, and gave the rope idea a shot..
My wife used it first on the deck and she liked it..
I was able to clean off the walkways & driveway a little faster and didn't have any back pain!
It took an effort to remember, not to bend over..
Seems like something that people with back problems, might want to try..

I like it but this is how I like to shovel.
Toro 38361 Power Shovel 7.5 Amp Electric Snow Thrower

I donít need it here.
I bought one for my father-in-law when he was in PA and he loved it.

My kid has one of those Toro power shovels..
But, since she works, the snow would get too deep in her small driveway..
So, I gave her our old machine (which was too big for her)...
Then found this one.. Toro Power Clear 721 R 21 in. Single-Stage Gas Snow Blower-38741 - The Home Depot
Which was just the right size..

My plan is to get that Toro Power Shovel from her, for clearing the back deck!

I should have added that my father-in-law just used it to clear his deck and sidewalk.
