NEW FOR 2020! - MARINE GRADE STAINLESS STEEL HARDWARE
Snow blowers are used in a sloppy, wet, and often times, harsh salt environment. Therefore, WoodMaxx SB-series snow blowers are now equipped with marine grade stainless steel hardware. Marine grade stainless steel hardware prevents corrosion and keeps your equipment looking good.
WoodMaxx SB-series snow blowers are equipped with a serrated auger. This feature allows the blower to quickly chop and pull frozen snow into the blower fan. Additionally, we have equipped the auger with a quick change shear bolt to protect the drive train if the auger was to experience a jam.
STRENGTH IN DESIGN
Designed in Buffalo New York (we know snow) the WoodMaxx SB and SS series snow blowers are the perfect combination of size, weight, and power. Offering features found nowhere else; these machines are built like a tank and made to last a lifetime. WoodMaxx SB-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.
HIGH INTENSITY LED FLOOD LIGHT OPTION
New for 2015, we have available an optional high intensity (1140 lumen) LED work light to illuminate the work area. Exterior grade Die-Cast Aluminum Housing (Black), whose back also functions as a built-in “heat sink” with 6 LED bulbs 18 total Watts (6 x 3W Diodes), polycarbonate lens, and stainless steel hardware. Designed to throw light in a 90 degree flood pattern, and positioned on the snow blower in just the right spot allows for a wide illumination angle. Only 125.00 when purchased with an SB-series snow blower. 10-30VDC (1.40A @ 12V, 0.73A @ 24V)
WoodMaxx SB series tractor PTO snow blower comes in various widths to suite your tractor. Choose from the SB-48 (48″) SB-60 (59″) SB-72 (72″) and the SB-84 (84″) widths. When choosing a snow blower for your tractor 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 rear tires of your tractor.
The cutting height of the SB series snow blowers range from SB-48 (25″) SB-60 (26″) SB-72 (27″) and the SB-84 (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. Additionally, this design allows for snow blowing stone driveways, by simply turning the cutting edge over to reverse the beveled edge which will reduce gouging.
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.
WoodMaxx SB series snow blowers offer various auger diameters to match the various size models. The SB-48 and SB-60 utilize a 15-1/2″ auger to feed snow into the fan, while the SB-72 and SB-84 use a larger 17-1/2″ auger.
The thickness of the auger blades is something to consider when choosing a snow blower. That is why we use heavy gauge 3/16″ (4.8mm) AR400 – equivalent tempered alloy steel to prevent damage to the auger blades when backing 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
SB-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 SB and SS 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 SB-series snow blowers is sized according to the width and capability of the snow blower along with the compatible tractors. Larger HP tractors can handle larger fans. Accordingly the fans offered are SB-48 (20″ fan with 2,827 ft./min blade tip speed) SB-60 (22″ fan with 3,110 ft./min. blade tip speed) SB-72 (24″ fan with 3,393 ft./min) and the SB-84 (24″ fan with 3,393 ft./min) blade tip speed.
6.75″ FAN DEPTH
Fan depth on all three size SB 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) These fans are heavy duty and act as a flywheel to keep going through heavy snow. The weight of the fan alone is SB-48 (55lbs.) SB-60 (63 lbs.) SB-72 (74 lbs.) and SB-84 (74 lbs). All WoodMaxx SB-series fan are dynamically balanced to ensure smooth running without vibration while prolonging bearing life.
CAST IRON GEAR BOX
The heart of the WoodMaxx SB-series snow blowers is the oil bath gear box. 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.
SB-series snow blowers will mount to any Category 1 or 2 three point hitch attachment, and is category 1 quick hitch ready. ***If a Quick Hitch is going to be utilized, please select the Standard PTO Shaft as the Premium PTO shaft will not be long enough.
HIGH DENSITY POLYETHYLENE DISCHARGE CHUTE LINER
WoodMaxx SB-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" CHUTE OUTLET DIAMETE
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.
1/8″ (3MM) DISCHARGE CHUTE THICKNESS
Like every aspect of the WoodMaxx SB-series the discharge chute is no exception. The steel is heavy gauge 1/8″ (3mm) thick steel and formed to an arch that was specifically designed to throw snow as far as possible.
CHUTE ROTATION OPTIONS - (MECHANICAL, 12 VOLT ELECTRIC, OR HYDRAULIC)
The WoodMaxx SB-series tractor snow blower comes standard with a unique mechanical crank positive gear and pinion crank design. Unlike worm gear designs common on competing machines that slip and require many, many cranks of the handle to rotate 180 degrees, the WoodMaxx design requires only 3 cranks of the handle to rotate the chute 180 degrees. Supported by 4 roller bearings, the chute rotates easily without slipping. The crank also mounts to the ROPS of your tractor to reduce the backward reach required to access the crank. As an upgrade we also offer a 12 volt electric chute rotation/ deflection option that comes complete with wiring harness and controls. Or if your tractor is equipped with hydraulic remotes, we offer a hydraulic chute rotation/ deflector option as well.
Either the electric or hydraulic options can be purchased and added on at a later date. (Please note that when you purchase either the electric or hydraulic chute rotation/ deflection options, then the mechanical crank system will not be included with your order) This part can be ordered separately for an additional charge.
PTO SHAFT INCLUDED
A shear bolt torque limited PTO shaft is included with the purchase of any WoodMaxx SB-series snow blower. Shear bolts are replaceable with a 5/16″ x 2-1/4″ grade 5 bolt that is easily accessible at any hardware store. For an additional $135 upgrade charge, we offer the option of a very high quality Premium PTO shaft. The Premium shaft retails for $250 if purchased separately from the machine.
