Snow Joe debuts first-ever battery-powered dual-stage snow blower at 2016 National Hardware Show

At the 2016 National Hardware Show, Snow Joe introduced the first completely cordless, self-propelled, battery-powered 2-stage snow blower — the iON Dual Stage.

“The snow-shredding power of iON Dual Stage is an unparalleled breakthrough in snow blower technology,” said Joseph Cohen, CEO of Snow Joe + Sun Joe. “Finally, consumers will have the power and performance previously reserved for expensive, inconvenient, hard-to-use gas models at their fingertips – without the gas, oil, noise or carbon emissions.”

Powered by twin iON EcoSharp 40-volt 4.0-Ah lithium batteries (the same used in Snow Joe + Sun Joe’s entire fleet of cordless iON products), the easy-to-use iON Dual Stage provides 30 minutes of whisper-quiet, self-propelled run time as it effortlessly carves a path 24 inches wide by 13 inches deep, moving 600 pounds of snow per minute – or 9 tons on a single charge.

Convenient and useful features on the iON Dual Stage include wide studded snow tires for increased traction, a 180-degree adjustable shoot capable of moving powder 32 feet precisely to where the user wants, powerful LED lights and digital shift technology. The advanced 3-speed digital drive system sets an ideal customizable pace, and the reverse function helps the user back out when the dirty work is done.
