When the snow really comes down, and the ice sets in, those who are not prepared have to pretty much write off work, travel and visitors until it thaws. That's all very well if you have nowhere to go and nothing to do but a thriving business needs to keep going and a large household doesn't stop for anything.
Stiga know this, that is why this serious professional standard dual-stage snow blower has been fitted with everything you need to clear large quantities of snow fast, in comfort and easily. It will clear large forecourts and drives, patios, and yards very easily and efficiently.
This dual-stage action involves a front mounted auger which revolves, breaking up the snow and ice then passing it back to a multi blade impellor which spins like a fan and continues the churning process while throwing the snow up and out of an exit chute. The auger on the Stiga Pro 1371 HST Commercial Dual-Stage Snow Blower is heavy duty, cast iron and multi-toothed to really break up hard snow and ice, and the impellor has four blades to tackle a large quantity of snow and throw it a good distance away.
The engine behind a top-class snow blower needs to be of the highest quality, so this machine is driven by a Briggs and Stratton Engine B&S 1650 Pro series 342cc model, putting out 6.71kw of power at 3600 rpm.
This engine is specifically designed to be harsh weather resistant and to provide power under freezing conditions, and is tested to start at temperatures as low as -20°F, with an oversized starting handle for the recoil, so you can wear gloves to pull it.
Overall this advanced OHV engine runs cooler and quieter with better fuel and energy efficiency and a much longer working life, and a 3.6 litre fuel tank means less time spent refuelling and more time spent clearing.
The transmission on the Stiga Pro 1371 HST Commercial Dual-Stage Snow Blower is EZT Hydrostatic, which allows you to adjust the six forward, and two reverse, gears and change speed in infinite increments without clunking through traditional gear changes, optimising manoeuvrability and keeping movement and steering smooth. The flexibility offered by this plus the easy trigger steering means tight corners, and dead-ends, as well as awkward spaces can be managed with ease, enabling you to clear every spot.
The working width of the Stiga Pro HST 1371 Snow Blower is very wide 74 centimetres, with an intake height of 50 centimetres and the auger diameter is 36cm, so a pretty deep fall of snow can be handled with no trouble.
The snow exit chute is rotational to a generous 200° so you can aim the snow stream where it is convenient, and both the rotation and the deflector which decides the angle of the stream, are controlled electrically from the panel so you don't have to move from the driving position and can alter them on the move.
The wheels are fitted with rugged 16" Arctic Track tyres, deeply pattered to deliver the best traction and grip in slippery conditions.
Ergonomics and comfort features abound on this advanced snow blower. A headlight is included so you can work in poor visibility and the handles are heated for operator comfort. The handles are also height adjustable to three positions, so you can work at the right height for your back.
The snow intake hood is fitted with high-density polyethylene skidshoes, which help the blower slide across the surface and are adjustable so you can raise the hood and clear on loose surfaces like gravel and grit with no problems. These are reversible so they can be swapped from one side to the other and turned over giving you even longer service. Done regularly, the skidshoes will wear evenly for a smoother run every time.
A weatherproof cover, in its own drawstring bag is included with this model.
