My family lives up in Bridgeport, CT, so I know exactly the kind of winters you have to deal with. A couple years ago I sent them all a couple gifts just based on my experience. I'm not trying to pimp product here or anything, but if you want to know what I use and what I sent to my family, then here ya go.
The Ice Master Scraper
I think you can find my review on that somewhere around here. I absolutely love that thing. I actually tracked down the inventor and sent him mine to have him sign it. lol It is the most amazing ice scraper I have ever ever ever used, and trust me... I've used a lot of them. If I had the capital then I would buy fifty of them and sell them to people in parking lots that I see trying to get ice off their windows with CD cases and credit cards. lol
For a snow brush I have two of these: OXO Snow Brush
I've got a short one in my car and my wife has the extendable handle in our Odyssey. (Best damn van on the planet) It does the trick without filling your pockets up with snow and it is ridiculously durable. I've had mine for at least four or five years now and it is still going strong. Very good brush.
There are a couple other products for removing extreme amounts of snow. I haven't done the reviews on video that I'd like to, but I did do a couple for snow stuff.
I don't know that the snow dozer thing is for everybody, but if you get buried often, then it could definitely do the trick. If nothing else then it is more compact than a sno brum (or however they spelled it wrong) and definitely more durable. It was designed for heavy wet snow areas like the NE or central states. We don't quite get that kind of thing out here in Utah where it is really dry powder most of the time.
Anyway, definitely take a look at that OXO brush and the Ice Master if you are looking for a couple great snow removal tools. I haven't seen anything better.
