The SnoBrum is an extendible tool that you'll want to add to your collection of winter must-haves designed to remove snow from cars without causing scratches or scuff marks.

What shoppers are saying

Backed by a 4.4-star average rating from more than 2,600 customer reviews, there's no doubt that this winter tool has become a top choice among Amazon shoppers.

According to one reviewer, "if you live in an area with snow and own a vehicle... you need one of these." They added that it makes fast work of clearing snow off of cars, and stands the test of time after being used for the last several years and remaining "in perfect condition."

Another reviewer shared that the SnoBrum is "awesome for tall vehicles" and was able to clear snow from the top of their Chevrolet Silverado.

"This is a must for trucks and SUV's," they added.

While this has received rave reviews from shoppers, it's important to note that it's designed only to remove snow and not ice. Other tools with a hard edge will offer a better way to remove ice from windows, while the SnoBrum does "an excellent job" removing snow from the whole vehicle.

Final verdict

As heavy snows approach, you'll want to stay ahead of the season with a quick and easy way to clean off your car. The SnoBrum Snow Removal Tool makes quick work of heavy snowfall even on tall vehicles.

Though effective at removing snow, you'll just want to make sure that if you do purchase a SnoBrum that you also have access to a de-icing tool as well. Since this foam device isn't quite strong enough to scrape away ice, it's best used in combination with other devices this winter.
