A snow thrower with top specification, ideal for large jobs.

The 9 Series snow thrower is Honda's top of the range model, able to clear large amounts of snow in no time.

Best-in-class clearing capabilities

An extremely large 71 cm clearing width and a clearing depth of up to 51 cm enable a maximum capacity of 50 tonnes of snow per hour. This is the equivalent of clearing two tennis courts, 30 cm deep in snow, in under ten minutes.

The auger effectively breaks up the snow and ice into small pieces, before the thrower blasts it up to 16 metres away. You can control where the snow goes using the electronic chute adjustment joystick, allowing for precise aiming of the snow as you move along.

Power & reliability

Using Honda's GX270 Pro-Spec, commercial-grade engine, the HSS 970 ETS benefits from excellent power and reliability. This engine has been specifically designed to start in sub-zero temperatures, as low as minus 25ºC. The carburettor is kept warm in such challenging conditions by recycling air from the exhaust system, providing you with reliable performance, smoother running and stopping the carburettor from freezing.

For the toughest sections, such as particularly deep snow or steep banks, you can raise the auger height using the adjustment lever, allowing you to power through before lowering it again.

Easy to use & manoeuvre

This model uses Honda's hydrostatic transmission, which allows adjustments to forward and reverse speed to be made with one hand using a single lever. With no gears, no shifting is required, for wonderfully simple control. The high-grip tracks mean there's no slipping or sliding, even on steep driveways and steps.

A further benefit with the HSS 970 ETS is the emergency stop feature, with an intelligent piece of technology called the Torque Limiter automatically shutting off the engine when the machine touches a solid obstacle (such as an item you can't see beneath the snow), preventing serious damage to the auger and transmission. An adjustable and powerful spotlight and integrated hour meter complete this professional package.

Comes with a 2 year conditional domestic warranty, and a 1 year professional warranty.
