Kress is adding a 24-inch, two-stage self-propelled snowblower to its lineup. Supported by Kress 60V Max batteries, it can tackle up to eight inches of snow on a 21-car driveway in one charge using two 5Ah batteries. Kress states the snowblower has a throwing distance of nearly 52 feet.
“Gas-powered snow blowers are loud, difficult to maintain and face bans in many communities nationwide, but until now battery-powered blowers rarely had the capacity to quickly remove heavy snowfall with one charge,” said Todd Zimmerman, VP of product development. “We applied our leading technology to design a battery-powered snow blower that produces gas-like output with optimal handling. It’s designed to withstand winter’s harsh conditions.”
The Kress two-stage snowblower, features two high-power brushless motors – one for plowing and one for propelling. It’s also equipped with a 2-in-1 discharge chute control system, variable speed auger, and 15-in. pneumatic snow tires. It has dual battery ports and its LED lights allow operation in low light.
Homeowners operate the machine with a user-friendly control panel, including three variable forward speed settings and a reverse drive function. The blower’s self-propelled feature moves the machine forward and frees the user’s other hand for panel control.
Engineered with durable, rust-resistant materials, the Kress 24-inch 2-stage Self-Propelled Snow Blower is backed by a five-year warranty; the battery has a 3-year warranty.
