Professional snow blower brings gas technology to battery-powered machines
December 13, 2022 By Turf & Rec
Toro’s new 60V Max 21-inch Power Clear self-propelled professional snow blower is built with Ground Engaging Technology – a staple feature of gas machines – that is available for the first time on a Toro battery unit which moves the machine forward with ease.
“The technology works similarly to a self-propelled mower, helping the operator move the unit along,” Sean Stebar, product marketing manager at Toro, says. “Essentially, it makes the snow blower easier to manoeuvre. Since it doesn’t require as much muscle, the operator can clear the desired area faster.”
The self-propelled function is achieved using ground-engaging paddles that create an all-wheel drive-like experience. The paddles sweep down clear to the pavement, breaking through even the most densely packed snow and gaining steady traction. The professional model features extended-life rubber augers and reinforced handles to stand-up to the rigours of commercial snow throwing.
Benefits of battery
The Power Clear blower is powered by the rugged 60V Max Flex-Force Power system, an interchangeable battery that powers an entire family of more than 50 Toro yard tools. Two battery ports are available on the blower, so users can choose whether to use the power of one or two batteries depending on the area of snow they need to throw. Just one battery will clear an area the size of a residential driveway and sidewalk, while two batteries easily tackle larger jobs on a single charge.
Packed with power
The robust system clears snow in one pass and throws it as far as needed. A three-phase brushless motor with RunSmart onboard intel optimizes RPMs and torque for more power and run time, and a longer tool lifespan. To save even more power, operators can opt for the ECO mode that automatically adjusts the battery usage based on snow throwing needs.
The 60V Max 21-inch Power Clear snow blower contains more noteworthy features, including:
- Quick-turn chute controls for precise snow placement
- Tackles snow up to nine inches deep
- Push-button start that starts the first time, every time
- Panoramic LED lighting for visibility at all hours
- Compact, storage-saving construction
