Woman with a Tool: Snow Wonder

This big yellow machine makes banishing unwanted flakes fast and fun. Because shoveling is for suckers.

Coming in from the cold to recline next to your lady and warm yourself by a crackling fire is a tempting thought. Unless you’re doing so because your driveway’s buried, you couldn’t escape if you tried, and your lady is Kathy Bates. Either way, life’s better with the Cub Cadet 528 SWE snow thrower. Sure, it rocks a 357 cc, four-cycle OHV engine, a 28-inch clearing width, and six forward and two reverse speeds. But its killer feature is called Posi-Steerpull a trigger to make unprecedented zero-degree turns, maneuver smoothly, and huck the fluffy stuff faster than ever before. Because as soon as the driveway’s clear, you can get back to writing those novels your lady loves so much. $1,349, cubcadet.com
