STRENGTH IN DESIGN
WoodMaxx SS-series snow blowers are manufactured using heavy formed Q-235 (American standard ASTM A-36) structural steel plate, the strongest hot rolled plate steel available. Forming allows for additional strength and rigidity. The pieces are CNC laser cut so that they fit together perfectly, and are then precisely welded. This fact combined with the structural design allows for one rugged snow removal machine.
POWERFUL HYDRAULIC MOTOR
Specifically made for WoodMaxx SS-series snow blowers the USA made White drive products hydraulic motor offers extreme efficiency and power for long life.
HYDRAULIC CHUTE ROTATOR/DEFLECTOR
WoodMaxx™ SS-series snow blowers come standard with all wiring harnesses and the hand held remote control. No need for any factory installed wiring from your skid steer. The WoodMaxx SS-72 will work with any skid steer provided that proper hydraulic flow is provided. Supported by 4 roller bearings, the chute rotates easily without freezing up.
WoodMaxx™ SS series snow blowers have a 71” wide cutting path. When choosing a snow blower for your skid steer it is a general practice to choose one that has a cutting width that is at least as wide as the distance from outside to outside of the tires of your skid steer.
WoodMaxx™ SS series snow blowers have a 27” high cutting capacity to match the width, auger and fan dimensions for the machine.
BOLT ON HARDENED STEEL CUTTING EDGE
Offering a bolt on replaceable cutting edge as standard equipment allows for the use of hardened steel and easy replacement when the time comes. Simply unbolt the worn cutting edge and replace it easily. Some competing blowers use soft common steel cutting edges that are welded in place. Also the design of the cutting edge is such that the blade rides flat on the ground so that it acts as a skid shoe. This design prolongs the life of the cutting edge and the skid shoes. Additionally the cutting edge is capable of scraping snow clean down to the pavement, but is also more forgiving on stone driveways than angled cutting edge designs.
BOLT ON REPLACEABLE SKID SHOES
Standard equipment includes bolt on and replaceable skid shoes. Because of the design of the cutting edge, these skid shoes take little wear, but are easily replaced when the time comes. Click for picture
The WoodMaxx™ SS series PTO snow blower offers a larger 17-1/2” auger to aggressively pull snow into the fan.
The thickness of the auger blades is something to consider when choosing a snow blower. That is why we use heavy gauge 5/16” (8mm) steel to prevent damage to the auger blades when pushing into those frozen snow piles.
AUGER TUBE DIAMETER
The main auger is built around and supported by a tube; that is why we use heavy wall 2-7/8” (70mm) tube as the base of our auger design. This large diameter ensures that the auger continues to run true without deforming.
4 BLADE OPEN CENTER FAN
SS-series snow blowers utilize a 4 blade open center cupped fan design. After countless hours of research and development in upstate NY the fan design of the WoodMaxx™ SS series snow blowers are extremely productive at scooping and discharging snow. The open center fan design allows snow to be easily pushed into the fan by the auger where it is then thrown to the outside of the housing by the 4 evenly spaced fan blades. These cup shaped blades efficiently force the snow outward to evacuate the housing.
LARGE FAN DIAMETER
The diameter of the fan is directly related to the fan blade tip speed and the distance at which the fan can throw snow. The fan diameter of the WoodMaxx™ SS-series PTO snow blower is sized according to the width and capability of the snow blower along with the compatible skid steers. Accordingly the 24” diameter fan has a blade tip speed of 3,393 ft./min.
6.75” FAN DEPTH
Fan depth on all three size SS snow blowers is 6.75” deep to allow for heavy snow removal without plugging.
5/16” (8MM) FAN STEEL THICKNESS
Because inevitably chunks of ice may pass through the fan, it is important to use heavy steel in the construction to prevent damage. Therefore the steel used for the production of the fan is 5/16”(8mm) Q235 structural plate steel. These fans are heavy duty and act as a flywheel to keep moving through heavy snow. The weight of the fan alone is 74 lbs. All WoodMaxx™ SS-series fan are dynamically balanced to ensure smooth running without vibration while prolonging bearing life.
CAST IRON GEAR BOX
WoodMaxx™ SS-series snow blowers use an oil bath gear box to transfer power from the main hydraulic motor to the in-feed auger. This ensures that maximum oil flow and pressure is used for the fan to expel snow from the discharge chute. Built for heavy use, the sealed cast iron gear box houses precisely machined gears that are bathed in oil during use for long life.
#60 ROLLER CHAIN TRANSMISSION
Power is transmitted from the gear box to the auger through a shaft and heavy #60 chain and sprocket design, which incorporates an easy to adjust chain tensioning mechanism. This solid state design ensures proper auger to fan speed ratio, increases torque and is easy to maintain. This is the same design as on our SB PTO series snow blowers, and proven reliable for years.
HIGH DENSITY POLYETHYLENE DISCHARGE CHUTE LINER
WoodMaxx™ SS-series snow blowers utilize a high-density polyethylene chute liner to keep the snow moving and prevent snow from freezing on and plugging the discharge chute. This liner also provides a very slick surface for the snow to deflect off of, ultimately increasing the speed and distance at which snow is thrown out of the chute.
9 INCH CHUTE OUTLET DIAMETER
9” of clear opening allows the snow to clearly and freely exit the fan housing. This keeps the snow moving to prevent freeze up and plugging.
SS-series snow blowers will mount to any skid steer that has a universal skid steer attachment mount. If you have any questions about compatibility, just give us a call.
3/16” (4MM) DISCHARGE CHUTE THICKNESS
Like every aspect of the WoodMaxx™ SB-series the discharge chute is no exception. The steel is heavy gauge 3/16” (4mm) thick steel and formed to an arch that was specifically designed to throw snow as far as possible.
