Toro is targeting large commercial properties with heavy snow and snow-packed slopes can now be cleared quickly, with power steering capabilities and improved stability for improved maneuverability thanks to two

Toro designed its new commercial-grade POWER TRX HD snow blowers with large lots and driveways in mind.  The 28-inch POWER TRX HD commercial snow blower has a wide 28-inch clearing width, and the 32-inch POWER TRX HD commercial snow blower covers even more territory with a 32-inch clearing width.

The units feature a hydrostatic-powered transmission for self-propelled operation, and the track drive grips the surface for stability and traction on tough terrain and slopes. Toro’s Infinitely Variable Speed feature provides control over the machine’s speed by allowing the operator to change speeds on the go.

“Users with slopes or steep terrain and heavy snow areas can clear large spaces in a short time with the POWER TRX HD series, which is also powered by a self-propelled hydrostatic transmission,” said Christina Howell, marketing manager at Toro, in a statement. “It’s a great solution for homeowners with steep driveways, in heavy snow areas that need to adjust their housing up or down, with a push of our quick-adjust lever they can easily go up for climbing or transport, flat to blow off a level surface and down to dig into the snow

Driven by Toro’s 420cc premium 4-cycle OHV engine, both models have the power and capacity needed to clear snow more than 20 inches deep, hurling snow over 60 feet depending on conditions. The one-push electric start lets the operator get right to work, and the power steering ensures smooth, tight turns, according to Toro. In addition, the units feature built-in hand warmers and LED headlights.

“The patented anti-clogging system also assures quick work in tough conditions,” Howell added. “It minimizes clogging and routes heavy snow away from the chute and back into the auger.”

Heavy-duty cast-iron skids with drift cutters assist the POWER TRX HD snow blowers through heavy snow. The Quick Stick chute control simplifies changing the deflector direction.

Both POWER TRX HD models are designed for dependability and reduced maintenance and feature all-steel construction and commercial-grade quality, according to the manufacturer.
