I got one similar to this at Walmart, only it is yellow. It works well for me. I usually warm up my truck in the morning to soften the ice on the windows.

Yup, thats the one I bought for my wife and she loves it. Had it several years now and still extends and locks in place just fine. I always take several of them over to an exterior window if possible and run the scraper blade over the fogged window to see which one works best. Tough to find a totally flat one. Anyone finish the edge on theirs for full scraper coverage??

On anothe note. My kid spent the summer at Florida State University and when he opened his trunk at the beach one time his Florida friends thought his ice scraper was a weapon. Never seen one before!

No, but I'm thinking I need to do something with mine on days like today. It was 3F when I left the house this morning and had to scrape like hell.

Spent some time out there in Longmont, CO. Used to work for Storagetek. Nice bit of country out there.

I usually use the wash brushes to clear snow. They are better on the clearcoat of the paint.

I've got the same yellow one for my truck's hood, roof, and tonneau cover. Fully extended, I can do the entire truck from one side and then just hit the side windows when I'm done. I'd get one for my wife's suv but she doesn't brush it off - prefers to let snow melt all over the garage floor when she gets home from work.

Not sure I miss that weather....Im still in a tshirt and shorts...( I wear shorts here all year long). I don't think I could give up the weather here. Its funny when It dips into the 50s here and everyone complains on how cold it is outside! I remember the -degree days and nights.
