Great invention but on another note Bloomington should require their homeowners shovel their own sidewalks.

Most of Bloomington's residential areas don't have sidewalks. Only if they're along a busier street like Old Shakopee Road or near a school.

Outstanding! Congratulations to Mr Hanson and I hope he makes a bundle from his invention.

I just googled it, and Bloomington does plow ALL the city sidewalks. They say it might take a while so be patient, but they do it. Including streets, sand and salt, city residents pony up about 11 bucks a year. I'm just so used to shoveling my own sidewalk, it didn't occur to me that a city would undertake something of that magnitude. I'd be willing to pay 5 times that to have my sidewalk plowed in addition to the street. I wonder how many miles of sidewalks we have here in Minneapolis?
