Winters come and go, and as they do they seem to be getting colder and snowier. Snow may look pretty but it can really make life difficult if it is clogging up your path, blocking your drive and stopping you and the family getting where you need to go.
But shovelling snow and breaking up ice manually is hard, back-breaking work and takes valuable time. An affordable, good quality Snow Blower is a simple, easy and effective solution to this problem and you would have to look hard to find a better example than the WOLF-Garten Select SF 56 Dual-Stage Petrol Powered Snow Blower, the ideal machine for clearing snow and ice medium to large sized properties.
This snow blower is powered by a superb WOLF-Garten 179cc, overhead valve petrol engine, designed specifically for working in cold weather and so ensuring quick starts, reliability even in freezing conditions and cleaner, quieter, more economic performance. This powerful and durable engine drives both the clearing mechanisms and the wheels, so no need for pushing.
The engine is fired-up with a simple and dependable recoil pull-start and features an oversized pull handle so it can be operated while wearing gloves.
The clearing action is powerful and effective. A heavy-duty steel auger, sharply toothed for extra bite when dealing with impacted snow and ice, breaks down the snow, pushing it backwards with an Archimedes screw action to a secondary mechanism, a high-speed impellor, which breaks down the smashed snow even further and then disperses it by means of a snow exit chute, literally throwing it metres away.
To clear driveways, parking spaces or walkways effectively and quickly, the working width is a generous 56 centimetres and the intake height of the blower is 41 centimetres, enabling you to push into, and clear, deeper snow.
The snow intake height is finely adjustable, courtesy of snow skids fitted to the front underside of the intake hood. These help the machine slide forward but can also raise or lower the hood, enabling you to clear on gravel or awkward surfaces without picking up and throwing unwanted material.
The snow exit chute has a generous width to enable large quantities of snow to be dispersed and it can be rotated a full 180° so the direction of the snow stream can be changed according to your needs. The chute is constructed from a tough weather and corrosion resistant polymer and rotation control is carried out with a handle, easy to reach from the operating position. Pitch control is also possible by means of a tip handle on the head of the chute. Again, this can be reached from the operating position.
The WOLF-Garten Select SF 56 Dual-Stage Petrol Powered Snow Blower is fitted with heavy-duty pneumatic tyres, 10 inches by 4 inches, which are deeply pattered and designed for maximum traction on rough or icy terrain and to help you manoeuvre in slippery conditions.
