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 â€“ serving to regenerate electrical energy.
Most snow blowers slow down when they encounter snow. The engine just canâ€™t keep up with the double load of forward propulsion and throwing snow.
The HS1336iâ€™s hybrid technology means it can provide powerful snow throwing and uninterrupted travel and motion â€“ simultaneously.
The powerful Honda iGX engine expels snow rapidly, while the dual motors deliver smooth and consistent power to the Honda track drive system.
