Cat® Snow Blowers Feature Quick Attachment
to Compact Machines and Efficient, Reliable Snow Handling

Cat® Snow Blowers for Skid Steer Loaders, Multi Terrain Loaders, Compact Track Loaders and
Compact Wheel Loaders feature a two-stage design with a hydraulically-driven auger and
impeller to move more snow quickly and efficiently, even in heavy, wet conditions. The
exclusive in-line impeller design balances power and torque to maximize capacity and throwing
distance while minimizing plugging.

Hydraulic controls allow the operator to easily adjust the snow blower auger, impeller, chute and
deflector from the operator station. The reversible auger and impeller allow the operator to expel
obstructions from the blower without leaving the seat.

The coupler interface is matched to the machine quick coupler system for fast, secure work tool
changes. Hydraulic hose routing, hose length and quick disconnects have been optimized to
ensure proper routing and fit-up. Operation is easy with dual joystick controls.

Standard flow models in 67-, 73- and 85-inch working widths and high flow (XPS) models in
73- and 85-inch working widths offer many additional features. For example, the chute rotates
180-degrees, permitting snow discharge to the front or side, preventing snow from blowing back
toward cab. The non-binding discharge chute uses a non-metallic liner to prevent plugging and
freeze ups.

The bolt-on, replaceable, reversible cutting edge and large skid shoes extend snow blower life.
For extended durability, hydraulic hard tubing lines eliminate wear and damage due to vibration.
Also, a diverter manifold cover and wire sleeving protect components from damage.
