Tractor-Mounted Snow Blowers
Tractor-Mounted Snow Blowers

In-cab-controlled Tractor-Mounted Snow Blowers by Snocrete are engineered for heavy-duty snow removal on farm and rural environs. Their mechanical drive is designed to transfer more of the tractor's horsepower than hydraulic-powered blowers; and their single-stage design reportedly requires fewer moving parts and is more resilient to foreign objects than auger blowers. Five models are available: three single-spout and two double spout, with cutting widths ranging from 72 up to 120 inches and cutting heights from 36 up to 60 inches. Snocrete features include: extra tall spout (carries snow up and out of the operator's vision), 360 degree spout rotation (casts snow in any direction), bolt-on ice chopper bars (breaks snow/ice for easier feeding), automatic chain oiler (extends chain life), and long shaft-gripping hubs (absorbs shock load and prevents sprockets from sliding on shaft).
