True Temper® Launches the AutoBoss™ A Revolutionary Compact Snow Shovel

Innovative, Sleek Design Provides Users a Convenient Tool for Roadside Snow Removal

September 2010 – True Temper®, a leading manufacturer of non-powered lawn and garden products, announces the launch of the AutoBoss™, a revolutionary compact snow shovel. With a sleek, patent-pending design, the innovative AutoBoss is lightweight and portable yet strong enough to handle heavy snowfalls.

“When it comes to snowfall this winter, we want consumers to be ready whether they are at home or on the road,” said Joe Saffron, Director of Marketing & Product Development, True Temper. “The AutoBoss is a quick and easy-to-use solution, and the perfect item to add to any roadside preparedness checklist. Its low profile design makes it great for easy storage in a trunk, under a car seat, or in a bag.”

The AutoBoss extends in an easy, fluid motion, and locks into place for strength and durability. It provides 150 square inches of coverage capacity and multiple hand placement options for comfort and control. The AutoBoss is perfect for clearing snow from tight areas but versatile enough to accompany campers and outdoor enthusiasts, too.

The AutoBoss, which costs approximately $12.99, will be available on, at Ace Hardware stores, and in the Northeastern United States at The Home Depot® starting October, 2010. For more information visit
