New-Style Pickup-Mounted Snowblower
Pak Systems "Sno-Hog" mounts on most Meyers, Western or Fischer lift systems. An Onan 24 hp 2-cyl. engine powers the 16-in. dia. auger and a 20-in. dia. impeller with 7 in. deep vanes.
"The electric start, choke, 2-spd. electric throttle, low oil shut off, chute rotation and optional chute deflector are all controlled from the pickup cab instead of out front," Kremer notes. "A 12-volt fuel shut off solenoid valve mounts under the hood of the pickup so all fuel lines which run from an optional auxiliary tank or off the truck's fuel system help to meet all safety guidelines."
The unit features a 25-in. vertical opening, full-width hardened steel cutting edge, adjustable skid shoes and 60 in. vertical bank cutters. Quick-tach electric and fuel line connections make for easy installation and removal.
Sizes are 84 and 94 in. (wings attach to match dually wheels) and sells for $6,995 and $7,145, respectively.
The company also makes a full line of hydraulic snowblowers for skid steers, diesel powered and direct drive intermediate size blowers for backhoes, tractors, medium and heavy duty trucks and equipment.
