There's no denying the fact that the Jeep Wrangler is one tough and rugged vehicle, and there is apparently little lost when the SUV is shrunk down for a 1:10th scale radio-controlled version. Proving that the Axial SCX10 Jeep Wrangler is not your run-of-the-mill R/C car, YouTube user Andrew Dykiel posted a pair of videos showing it clear about an inch of snow from his sidewalk and driveway during a snow storm last month.

Starting at $379.99, the Axial SCX10 costs more than most budget snowblowers, but other than paying a neighbor kid to shovel your snow, this might be the best way for a car guy to clear snow without the need for hot chocolate and ibuprofen. Better yet, it's electric, so it's a zero-emission answer to snow removal! Scroll down to see how this R/C Jeep can help "shovel" snow from the warmth of your sofa. We've also thrown in a bonus video showing the mini Jeep negotiating the Rubicon Trail.

      I love it! The RC and it's ability to plough snow are just amazing.

      I love RC cars, both electric and gas powered. But an electric vehicle, full size or RC size, is not zero-emission. Electricity in the USA comes primarily from burning coal so the "pollution" is just relocated, not eliminated. But can't we just have fun and cool automotive articles without all the politicallycorrect/green/global warming BS?

      Fine for an inch or two of light snow, don't think its gonna clear the 2 feet of lake effect we're getting today.

      I have one of these Axial trucks and they are awesome. I can pull the neighbors kid on his skateboard with it. Up to approx. 80-90 lbs with the stock motor. Probably don't want to do that too much though :) Oh and it crawls really well too.
