Snowblower Mat

I’ve never been able to find a good system for what to put beneath my snowblower in the garage.

After you snowblower, the thing is covered in snow. This janky system I have catches it as it melts back into water, so it’s not a big sprawling puddle. You can wipe the snow off to some degree outside, but you won’t get it all.

A perfect mat would be:

  • Easy to roll the snowblower on and off.
  • Have edges that keep the water in we’ll.
  • Be pretty lightweight and otherwise easy to drag outside and empty.
  • Fit the whole footprint of the snowblower.
  • Be some color that doesn’t look like crap when kinda dirty.

Free startup idea.
