The new snow blower has dual sets of lights, a push button start and collapsible handle for easy storage

MILWAUKEE, Wisconsin (October 16, 2019) – Homeowners will be ready to tackle the winter with the new Snapper XD 82-volt MAX1 single stage snow blower. The new battery-powered blower is a convenient, light-weight alternative that can throw snow up to 20-feet2. Briggs & Stratton Corporation is showcasing the new lithium-ion powered snow blower at GIE+EXPO in Louisville, Kentucky, from October 16th to 18th in booth number 5016.

“The new snow blower is hassle-free. There’s no cord to plug in and very little maintenance needed,” said Christin Wam, marketing manager for turf and consumer products, Briggs & Stratton. “This is a great addition to the Snapper XD family. XD products are ideal for convenience-oriented homeowners who want reliable, durable, powerful tools to help them easily take care of their year-round outdoor maintenance needs.” 

A brushless motor provides maximum efficiency and power for up to 75-minutes of run3 time on a 4.0 battery during the coldest winter months. The snow blower boasts a 6.5-inch diameter auger that can throw snow up to 20 feet2 from its adjustable 180-degree throwing chute for ultimate removal in a short amount of time. The unit offers a 10-inch clearing depth2, 20-inch clearing width and has 8-inch wheels with metal skid shoes help with resisting wear while tackling cold outdoor jobs. The new snow blower features two convenient sets of lights on the control panel and auger housing to light the path during the dark winter months. In addition to the ample 4.0 82-volt MAX battery power (included in the kit), operators will appreciate the blower’s push button start for instantaneous starts in cold weather. And when the job is finished, operators can simply collapse the handle for easy storage in the garage. 

“In addition to the snow blower, the lawn edger attachment is the sixth and newest addition to the current versatile attachments of the Snapper XD string trimmer system,” said Wam. “Now, homeowners have the ability to turn their string trimmer into a lawn edger making pristine edges are achievable.”

The snow blower kit includes a 4.0 82-volt MAX battery; the snow blower can also be purchased separately. All Snapper XD tools have a five (5) year limited consumer warranty4, attachments have a three (3) year limited consumer warranty and all Briggs & Stratton® 82V Max1 Batteries and Rapid Charging Stations have a two (2) year limited consumer warranty4.
