Some men are content with shovelling snow. Not us. We’d rather steer a 300-pound heavy duty aluminium beast through the snow drifts, because this Cub Cadet 3X Snow Thrower ($1,700) has a serrated steel auger that’ll chew through ice and spit it out like a Doberman through hamburger. It has a 420cc engine, power steering, pitch control, 16” tires, six forward speeds, and two reverse speeds. This bad boy is 30”, but there are smaller ones available—if you’re into that.
