The Back Saver…

I spend a lot of time working at my Indianapolis rental properties … not just the ones I own personally, but also those I manage for other people, in and out of state.  I’m always on the look out for products, tools and techniques that save my time prevent wear and tear on my body.  Here’s my latest cool little gadget:

Scooter BoardIt’s made by Champion and it’s called a scooter board.  Schools and other sports programs create fun games for kids using this piece of equipment, with or without a ball in play.

Scrubbing floors, painting baseboards, or doing repairs that require constant bending can really “do a number” on my back after a while, so I decided to try this scooter.

It’s lightweight plastic but it’s very sturdy, has carrying handles and four casters that rotate.  The casters don’t put scuff marks on any type of floor, and I can sit on this thing and roll along quickly as I do whatever floor work needed.  It’s fantastic!  I found it on Amazon for about $20.  Well worth it, I must say.

So, for those of you who do work that takes you down to floor level — whatever it is — think about adding this item to your equipment list.  You (and your body) will be glad you did!
