New Bobcat snowblower improves productivity with increased intake, bigger auger

Bobcat's new snowblower attachment improves productivity with an increased intake height and bigger auger to draw more snow into the blower, as well as nine different width options and several motor packages. This attachment helps clear snow faster and more efficiently, allowing operators to make fewer passes for quick area cleaning.

The snowblower features a durable direct-drive, sprocket-style chute rotation,  improving performance, durability and maintenance accessibility. The chute also delivers 270 degrees of rotation for a wide range of accurate snow placement possibility, which is a 15-degree increase over previous designs. It can also be placed wherever the job requires, including hard to reach places like lawns, ditches and wooded areas along a path.The machine can also break through ice buildup, eliminating the need for chains. 

The chute's rounded intake provides a smoother surface to roll the snow into the feed impeller, rather than pushing it. This design minimizes clogging, reduces resistance for improved snow flow through the attachment and improves productivity. High-flow models capture extra available hydraulic horsepower from the carrier, which enables clearing through the deepest drifts and heaviest snow while throwing it farther.

An additional feature includes easily adjustable skid shoes which are mounted to the sides of the snowblower, allowing operators to raise or lower the clearing depth to match the surface of the job site. This feature makes it easier to maintain ground alignment and can also help guide operators along curbs or walls while preventing contact with the snowblower itself.
