The 60V Power Max in action.

If you're looking at integrating some battery-powered snow blowers into your equipment arsenal, then you might want to check out Toro's new 60V Power Max two-stage snow blower.

Toro is asking snow contractors to forget about what they new about battery-powered equipment and claims the 60 V Power Max is a force to be reckoned with.

“A two-stage battery-powered snow blower that could deliver just as much power as a gas model, was once a pipe dream — then we developed the 60V Power Max two-stage snow blower,” says Tom Werner, senior marketing manager at Toro. “This unit is identical to Toro’s gas two-stage model in every way, except it packs a powerful punch with our Flex-Force Power System, the most powerful battery in its class.”

Available in two models, the e24 and e26, Toro says its snow blower is the only battery-powered unit designed with three battery ports. With two batteries on board, the e26 clears 30 parked car spaces on one charge. With a third battery port on board, operators can harness the power of three 7.5ah 60V Flex-Force batteries to clear 45 parked car spaces in up to ten inches of snow.

Built with long-lasting, heavy-duty steel, the new 60V snow blower deliver power without compromise. Both models feature Toro’s Quick Stick chute control, which allows snow contractors to put snow where they need it.

In addition, the new snow blower does not require shear pins and features a hardened gear and auger, plus an anti-clogging system. Additionally, Toro has equipped the e26 model with handwarmers.

“The new 60V Power Max snow blower makes quick work of clearing serious snow, ice and heavy drifts — all on one charge,” Werner adds.
