Suggestions for a lightweight, but capable, snowblower?

I need to buy a snowblower which I can use to clear the moderately heavy snows of central New Jersey from a short driveway, but which can also be used with good effect when I'm away by my skinny wife or our middle-aged nanny.

There was a snowblower question a couple of weeks ago; you might find some useful advice there, though it wasn't focused on lightweight models. Unfortunately, it seems like the tradeoff between weight and power is pretty uncompromising.

Yeah, I'm in the Philly burbs (similar snow levels to Jersey) and I had to dump the lightweight model, just not worth it.
