Engine Exhaust Fights Freeze-Ups
Clarence Welander, Fullerton, N. Dak., says his "best idea" prevents falls on slippery ice and also serve as a way to thaw out iced-up equipment. He simply slips a rubber hose over the exhaust pipe on his car, truck or tractor and uses the hot air to take ice off steps, sidewalks, drinking fountains and so on.
Bob Hensler, Rensselaer, Ind., has a similar idea. He attaches a piece of car radiator hose to a hair dryer to reach small out-of-the-way freeze-ups. "I often have to thaw out water pipes that run through 6-in. tile under our hog fountain. They were hard to reach until I tried this idea. The fountain has a 3-in. opening on the side to get down below."
