The 815 mm (32") dual-stage auger utilizes a heavy duty serrated steel "blade" to chew through hard packed snow and ice without breaking a sweat. The clearing height is 570 mm (22.4"). A high speed impeller located in the resin lined chute fires snow up to 19 meters or 62 feet. The YT1232ED can move up to 76 tons of snow per hour.
HYDRAULIC ASSIST AUGER HOUSING TILT SYSTEM
Hydraulic assist adjustable auger housing means you can adjust the auger housing height to suit conditions. You can add "additional" bite into the snow or set it to just skim the pavement or raise it in the event of loose gravel or an uneven interlock driveway. The lever activated adjustment is simple and easy to use.NOTE:The more "bite" that is added increases the risk of damage to the auger, its housing and the surface you are clearing.
ADJUSTABLE ?SKIDS? AND SERRATED SNOW SCRAPER
The adjustable (and replaceable) skids allow you to pre-set the auger height to avoid damage to the auger and its housing. The serrated snow scraper helps break up ice and hard packed snow as it enters the auger system.
The durable, single lever operated, hydrostatic transmission (HST) provides precise speed control and smooth shifting. This variable speed transmission allows the unit to move forward at speeds up to 1.35 km/hr. and up to 0.75 km/hr. in reverse. Easy access remote HST fluid reservoir makes checking and topping up the fluid level quick and easy.
SKID STEER STYLE STEERING
The YT1232 features skid style steering. This system locks one track while allowing the other to continue moving. This system allows the YT1232EDJ to steer with less effort and to maneuver in tight spaces.
Rubberized track drive system plows through snow conditions that stop other blowers cold. Track drive provides superior traction on steep driveways or laneways and also makes it possible to climb stairs. The tracks are 180 mm or 7" wide. Wheeled blowers don't even compare.
ELECTRIC RESIN LINED CHUTE
The electric resign lined chute is controlled by an easy to use joystick and has a turning radius of up to 230°, so you can direct the snow just about anywhere. The resin lining helps to reduce snow sticking and build up.
ADJUSTABLE CHUTE DEFLECTOR TIP
The resin lined chute features an adjustable, lever operated discharge tip that allows you to control how far the snow is thrown.
Special shear bolts are designed to help prevent expensive damage to the auger and housing in the event it comes in contact with a solid object. The replaceable shear bolts are designed to break-off in the event that the auger comes in contact with a solid object, saving the auger and transmission from expensive damage.
EASY TO USE CONTROLS
Centrally located control levers are grouped together for easy access. All levers are designed to be used with heavy gloves or mitts. The unit is designed to keep the operator's right hand free to work the control levers.
MULTIFUNCTION FUEL PETCOCK
Settings include fuel off, fuel on, carb drain and fuel hose drain. This petcock design helps reduce the storage problems associated with Ethanol fuels.
