    Does anyone know of an app that will allow me to use a computer to remove snow from our walks and driveway?

      Not a computer but a robot

        An intelligent yard robot!

        The Yarbo robotic snow blower S1 with GPS “computer vision” combined with a variety of sensors that helps it achieve centimeter-grade accurate positioning!

        It has a 21-inch clearing width, 12-inch intake, and six inch to 40-foot throwing distance. And it is only $7,499.00.  Just what I was thinking about and I do not have to sit at the computer to use it.

        Is the Yarbo robotic snow blower a suitable replacement for the $130 Toro Ultra 340 cubic feet per minute electric leaf blower that I just used to blow four inches of light powder snow off the walks and drive?

        Or the $1,400 gasoline powered TORO Power Max HD 928 OAE snow blower with a 28-inch clearing width, 12-inch intake, and up to 45-foot throwing distance that has been sitting idle in the garage for the last three years due to a lack of deep snow?

        But real question is will the Yarbo robotic snow blower clear our gravel walks and drive.  According to Yarbo, the answer is no!

        Any other ideas?

          Get a weed burner and propane tank and just melt it which unfortunately turns to ice.

          Gravel snow removal would be a problem with any robotic remover LOL. Sorry, just thinking out loud. Good luck in your search 🙂

      Not an app, but a website. It’s been around for a long time.

      Task Rabbit

      Where am I? What am I doing in this hand basket?

        taskrabbit – not exactly what I had in mind but I guess that help retained through the site will clear snow from our walks and drive while I sit at the computer.

        An alternative site here in the States is the National Weather Service at https://www.weather.gov/  .

        All I need to do is fill in our location, scroll down and see when temperatures will be above freezing, the sun will shine, and/or it is going to rain.  From that information I can estimate when the snow will be gone while sitting at the computer.

      I have not tried this U.S. based app yet:

      …waiting for the snowblower to die.  Through the app, you review and hire someone, similar to Task Rabbit.

      Where I live there is much, much more grass to cut than the occasional snow we get.  So.. I would really rather have a robotic lawn mower!  The grass needs to be cut every week and at my age it’s gotten to be a real chore cutting, weed-wacking, and cleaning up.

        Earlier on Susan Bradley pointed to the Yarbo yard robot at     https://www.yarbo.com/

        Yarbo sells “The World’s First Multi-purpose Intelligent Yard Robot” that includes:

        • Yarbo Snow Blower S1 for a snow-free driveway & sidewalk in winter,
        • Yarbo Lawn Mower M1 for a perfectly-cut lawn all-year-round,
        • Yarbo Blower B1 – for a leaf free yard in autumn.

        So, if you really want a robotic lawn mower – go for it!
