The hybrid configuration of the HS1336i combines a gasoline engine with two electric motors.
The gasoline engine simultaneously drives the snow blower auger/fan apparatus (clearing and throwing the snow) and charges the battery.
The electric motors (two in parallel) control the track drive forward propulsion. These motors also function as a generator during deceleration of the snow blower serving to regenerate electrical energy.
Most snow blowers slow down when they encounter snow. The engine just can''t keep up with the double load of forward propulsion and throwing snow.
The HS1336is hybrid technology means it can provide powerful snow throwing and uninterrupted travel and motion simultaneously.
The powerful Honda iGX engine expels snow rapidly, while the dual motors deliver smooth and consistent power to the Honda track drive system.
