PITTSBURGH, Jan. 4, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- While conventional snow plows have long been the equipment of choice for clearing roads for winter travel, they are not designed for snow removal from motor vehicle roofs. Thanks to the creativity of an inventor from Waterbury, Conn., commercial truck drivers will no longer need to clean off their trailer roofs by hand.
He developed TRAILER ROOF PLOW to remove snow from the top of a semi-trailer, box truck, bus or van quickly and easily prior to traveling. As such, it keeps snow from falling from trailer roofs onto other vehicles traveling nearby. Not only does it help promote highway safety in snowy weather, it helps ensure compliance with laws prohibiting road travel with snow-covered vehicles. Along with the time and effort it saves, this novel accessory is built for durability, reliability and ease of installation, operation and storage. In addition, it is a convenient, effective and practical way to solve a common problem.
The inventor's personal concerns inspired the idea. "I wanted to prevent accumulated snow on semi-trailer rooftops from sliding onto other vehicles and causing a safety hazard," he said.
The original design was submitted to the Connecticut office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
