shoveling snow will benefit from the Driv'nPlow(R).  Our products will really
change the way most homeowners approach snow removal in the 21st Century,"
says Matisz.
    During the first two major Colorado snowstorms of 1999, customers
successfully used Solotec's Car snowplows.  One woman, in her early-40s in
Conifer, CO, used the Driv'nPlow(R) in a 350ft. (107 meters) driveway setting
to clear 17" (43 cm) of fresh snow; another male customer, in Evergreen, CO,
in his mid-40s used one of Solotec's Car snowplows in a 600ft. (183 meters)
gravel driveway environment to clear 17" (43 cm) of wet snow.
    The 43-pound (19 Kg.) snowplow is designed to fit most family cars and
minivans.  The company also has a sport utility/pickup version available on
its website for $450.  Driv'nPlow(R) is excellent for driveway and small
parking lot snow removal, but is not for road use.  Easy to assemble, no
complicated mounting is ever required.
