If you enjoy playing with the snowblower (who doesn’t?) but feel bad about polluting the environment and creating unnecessary noise, then you’ll definitely want to check out the Honda HS1336iAS Hybrid Snowblower.  This puppy is equipped with a 4-stroke gas engine and two electric motors.  The gas engine drives the snowblower auger (clearing and throwing the snow) while at the same time charging the battery.  The electric motors are responsible for driving the track and function as generators during deceleration of the snowblower, recharging the battery.  Not only can you feel good about yourself clearing the snow with this machine, but thanks to its throw distance of up to 62 feet you can also have some fun with it – like firing the snow at your neighbor’s pesky dog.  $7999.  www.powerequipment.honda.com
