Nature’s been an insufferable ______ as of late. Get in some haymakers of your own in the final round this year and be ready before the bell next season with the Husqvarna 1830EXLT ($2,500) 414cc Track Drive Hydrostatic Snow Blower. This garage-based Abrams boasts the largest track treads of any blower on the market today, replete with vibration-reducing tread designs along with the 3-point track drive that provides plenty of traction for any situation, including “offroading” tasks on larger properties. A hydrostatic transmission with “infinite” forward and reverse likewise supplies all the power you’ll need for handling 23-inch drifts like butta or putzing about your freshly cleared domain — which is fortunate, considering it weighs more than Ving Rhames (and family) on a creatine binge. A heavy-duty auger, high-speed impeller, heated handles and LED headlights top it all off, leaving you to sit back, relax and launch snow 40 into your neighbor’s territory.
