For anyone who is interested in snowblowers , Honda has a complete new model for 2003. I've'seen a prototype at a consumer show. I think they said it was 14 HP and on tracks. The engine drives the auger only and it has electric drive motors for each track and joy stick control. The auger [36" or 38"?] can be angled up or down at each end to work better on a sloped surface. This also by an electric motor along with electric shute operation. There is also a rumor that there may be a stand on platform at the back as well. Probably a lot of other neat things also.
