Snow clearing is becoming more important as winters seem to get tougher and there is no better company to turn to than Swedish snow experts Stiga when you need a great all-round machine to clear larger areas such as car parks, warehouse forecourts, private roads and even runways at smaller airfields.
This pro ride-on snow blower, complete with a wide range of snow clearing equipment, will do the job easily and with no fuss. Suitable applications might include clearing snow at large goods yard & distribution centres, transport depots, ports, factories, universities, colleges, hospitals, tourist attractions and visitor centres. In fact any large-scale snow clearance task required to keep your organisation or business running this year.
It features a superb Yanmar 1115cc 3TNV76 water-cooled diesel engine for a cooler, quieter performance with less emissions and better fuel economy. The fuel tank can take up to 42 litres of diesel so there is less refuelling and more working - enough in fact to keep you going for the whole day.
Powerful hydraulics at the rear of the unit ensures that it can handle many different attachments on the back as well as the front.
Fully hydraulic hydrostatic transmission gives full four-wheel-drive for easy handling in harsh conditions and infinite speed control with no clutch or gears. The hydraulic 4WD system and the hydraulic 20L tank provide a working speed of up to 15kph and a total top travelling speed of up to 20kph greatly increasing working efficiency when time is short.
PTO (Power Take Over) clutch means front mounted implements will be loaded quickly and smoothly and there is shock loading protection with a specially designed automatic relief valve. Front attachments are also picked up and lowered safely and smoothly with the hydraulic lift.
The unique design of the fully articulated chassis places the pivot between the front and rear axles, so you are steering from the centre with no tail swing, so the back section of the machine follows the movement of the front precisely - you will never need to look back to check whether the back might hit something the front has avoided.
A single lever adjusted, high back comfort seat, with armrests, is included for a comfortable ride. The seat benefits from a parallel suspension system and is easily operated with one hand,
The chunky 20” wheels and tyres provide great traction in wet and slippery conditions and there is a powerful headlight fitted to help work through bad visibility.
A number of specialist winter clearing accessories are available and these all attach with the specially designed ‘Release and Connect’ system – this is quick and easy and you don’t need tools.
These accessories include a robust snow blade with attachable rubber and metal scrapers, an X-Blade for pushing aside heavy snowfall, a fully-featured Dual Stage Snow Blower and two possible Sand Spreaders – which will also spread grit and crushed rock mixed with salt.
There is also a Rotary Sweeper and there are Snow Chains for added purchase in the snow and ice.
