Honda introduces snowblowers to the UK
Published: 08 February, 2012
Honda UK has added a range of snowblowers to its product range. There are six different models to choose from and all of them feature an easy start in temperatures as low as -26oC; are heavy duty augers; have a joy-stick controlled shute; and feature a dead man's switch.
The HS622 snowblowers are at the smaller end of the scale but have the ability to clear up 37 tonnes an hour, and come with a choice of an electric or manual start.
The mid-range HS760 offers a clearing capacity of 42 tonnes an hour, and features hydrostatic drive controlled by one lever.
Ideal for larger areas, the HS9070 clears deeply packed snow at a capacity of 50 tonnes per hour.
All units can blow snow to either the side or the front, meaning they can clear a path far wider than the typical sub-one metre operating width. In ideal conditions they can blast the cleared snow between 14 and 16 metres from the machine.
