Shoveling just got easier, allowing users to tackle through light- to mid-duty snow removal tasks with ultimate power, control, reliability and ease of use. Toro's snow blower line includes a battery-powered newcomer, the Toro 60V Flex-Force Power Shovel which provides snow-clearing performance, allowing operators to conquer the cold winter months and power through properties with battery-powered ease.
The 60V Power Shovel is ideal for clearing every corner of decks, patios, sidewalks and driveways that hold up to four parked cars. With remarkable power packed into a nimble and compact package, the 60V Power Shovel can easily clear up to six inches of snow in a single pass and offers a 12-inch clearing width. This machine can also shred through snow and throw it up to 25 feet, due to the Power Shovel's Power Curve technology.
Exclusive to the Power Shovel, users have more power when they want it and control when they need it with Toro's two-speed option, allowing them to adjust speed preferences for the job. The Power Shovel includes a Flex-Force 2.5ah 60V Battery System, allowing operators to use the same battery across all seasons in other 60V tools such as the leaf blower, trimmer, etc. The Flex-Force Power System ensures a runtime of up to 45 minutes on a single charge and a 60-minute recharge time.
With a brushless DC motor, the Power Shovel has increased power and a longer runtime. Cordless, the Power Shovel is easy to maneuver and convenient. Also, the compact design allows for easy storage with a minimal footprint in garage or on a trailer.
"We wanted to give our customers a battery-powered snow removal option that's compact and easy to handle, yet powerful enough to get the job done," said Christina Howell, marketing manager at Toro. "We believe we've developed a tool that meets all the snow removal needs for customers, and it’s also a great supplemental tool for larger areas such as steps, decks, patios, etc”
She noted that the tool allows customers to clear every corner of property with precision and ease.
“This important balance of simplicity and power in the introduction of the 60V Flex-Force Power Shovel is a win-win for users looking for high performance packed into a compact, easy-to-use machine,” Howell said.
The Power Shovel is part of Toro’s Flex-Force Power System including a leaf blower, string trimmer, mower and more. The system is backed by a three-year full warranty on the 60V Power Shovel and a three-year full warranty on the battery assemblies.
