Match The Features and Capabilities To The Job Requirements
Honda offers single-stage and two-stage gasoline powered snowblowers that efficiently removes snow and ice from paved or gravel surfaces.
Honda’s single-stage blowers are best for clearing small to midsize areas with 8 or less inches of snow. They are compact, lighter and easy to handle. The snow is discharged directly out of the chute by the auger. While the wheels aren’t engine-driven, their augers make contact with the ground that creates a semi-self propelled action. They can clear up to 55 tons per hour. The large clearing area is 20 inches wide by 12 inches high. A choice of either a recoil or 120-Volt AC electric starter is available.
The more powerful two-stage blowers, are designed for clearing larger paved areas, and where the terrain may be uneven and/or gravel covered. They are capable of handling snow in excess of 8 inches. They can discharge, even heavy snow, further and faster than single-stage because of the high-speed impeller positioned behind the auger.To reduce operator fatigue, two-stage models have either large rear wheels or tracks that are engine-driven. They power the blower through uneven terrain and compacted snow and ice. Track drive models have superior traction under the most challenging snow conditions. They grip the ground firmly to allow the unit to easily handle difficult inclines. Track drive models are preferable for clearing hard packed snow on commercial flat top roofs and on the ground. Depending on the model, two-staged blowers can clear from 46.3 to 83 tons per hour. The clearing widths range from 24 to 36.2 inches and clearing heights from 20 to 22.8 inches. A choice of either a recoil or 120-Volt AC electric starter is available.
