Designed in Buffalo New York (we know snow) the WoodMaxx SB and SS series snow blowers are the perfect combination of size, weight, and power. WoodMaxx SB-series snow blowers are manufactured using heavy formed Q-235 (American standard ASTM A-36) structural steel plate. Forming allows for additional strength and rigidity. The pieces are CNC laser cut so that they fit together perfectly and are then precisely welded. This combined with the structural steel design allows for one rugged snow removal machine. To further protect these PTO snow blowers from corrosion due to sloppy, wet, harsh salt environments, we installed marine grade stainless steel hardware. Offering features found nowhere else; these machines are built like a tank and made to last a lifetime.
The WoodMaxx SB-60 PTO snow blower features a cutting width of 59”. It’s general practice when choosing a PTO snow blower, to choose one that has a cutting width that is at least as wide of the rear tires of your tractor, as the distance from outside to outside. Please refer to tractordata.com if you’re unsure of the track width of your tractor.
The cutting height on our SB-60 PTO snow blower is 26” high.
The WoodMaxx SB-series PTO snow blowers are equipped with a heavy gauge 3/16″ (4.8mm) AR400 – equivalent tempered alloy steel 15.5″ serrated auger. This prevents damage to the auger blades when backing into those frozen snow piles. At the base of our auger design, you’ll notice we’ve strategically built a heavy wall 2-7/8″ (70mm) tube as well. This large diameter tube around the main auger is what ensures the auger continues to run true without deforming. It also allows the blower to quickly chop and pull frozen snow into the blower fan. Additionally, we have equipped the auger with a quick-change shear bolt to protect the drive train, if the auger was to experience a jam.
The WoodMaxx SB-60 PTO snow blower utilizes a 22” diameter, 4-blade, open center cupped fan. It features a 3,110 ft./min blade tip speed and 6.75” fan depth for heavy snow removal. These cup shaped blades force the snow outward to evacuate the housing. The fan is constructed of 5/16″(8mm) steel, weighing 63 lbs. It is inevitable that chunks of ice may pass through the fan, so it’s important to use heavy steel in the construction to prevent damage. These fans are heavy duty and act as a flywheel to keep going through heavy snow. All WoodMaxx SB-series fan are dynamically balanced to ensure smooth running without vibration while prolonging bearing life. This design allows the snow blowers to be extremely productive when scooping and discharging heavy snow.
The heart of the WoodMaxx SB-series snow blowers is the right-angle oil bath gear box. Built for heavy use, the sealed cast iron gear box houses precisely machined bevel gears that are bathed in oil during use for long life.
Power is transmitted from the gear box to the auger through a shaft and heavy #60 chain and sprocket design, which incorporates an easy to adjust chain tensioning mechanism. This solid-state design ensure proper auger to fan speed ratio, increases torque and is easy to maintain.
WoodMaxx SB-series PTO snow blowers are equipped with a heavy gauge 1/8″ (3mm) thick 9″ diameter steel discharge chute with high-density polyethylene liner. The chute liner keeps the snow moving and prevents plugging. The large 9″ chute diameter allows the snow to clearly and freely exit the fan housing. The chute is specially designed to form to an arch, further boasting its ability to throw snow as far as possible.
The WoodMaxx SB-series PTO snow blowers come standard with a unique mechanical crank positive gear and pinion crank design. Unlike worm gear designs common on competing machines that slip and require many cranks of the handle to rotate 180 degrees, the WoodMaxx design requires only 3 cranks of the handle to rotate the chute 180 degrees. Supported by 4 roller bearings, the chute rotates easily without slipping. The crank can mount to the ROPS of a tractor to reduce the backward reach required to access the crank.
As an upgrade, we offer a 12-volt electric chute rotator and deflector option that comes complete with wiring harness and controls. If your tractor is equipped with hydraulic remotes, we also offer a hydraulic chute rotator/ deflector option for an additional charge.
Either the electric or hydraulic options can be purchased and added on at a later date. (Please note that when you purchase either the electric or hydraulic chute rotation/ deflection options, then the mechanical crank system will not be included with your order). This part can be ordered separately for an additional charge.
The bolt-on replaceable hardened steel cutting edge allows for easy replacement when the time comes. Competing blowers use soft mild steel cutting edges that are welded in place.
The cutting edge is also capable of scraping snow clean down to the pavement but is also more forgiving on stone driveways than angled cutting edge designs.
Standard equipment includes bolt-on and replaceable 6” wide skid shoes. These robust skid shoes take little wear and are easily replaced when the time comes.
To illuminate the work area, we offer an optional high intensity (1140 lumen) LED work light. It features exterior grade Die-Cast Aluminum Housing, whose back also functions as a built-in ‘heat sink’ with 6 LED bulbs totaling 18 Watts, a polycarbonate lens, and stainless-steel mounting hardware. This high intensity LED work light is designed to illuminate in a 90-degree flood pattern and positioned on the snow blower in just the right spot for wide and bright operation area.
SB-series snow blowers will mount to any Category 1 or 2 three-point hitch attachment and is category 1 quick hitch ready.
NOTE: A shear bolt torque limited 32” Premium PTO shaft is included with the purchase of any WoodMaxx SB-series snow blower. Shear bolts are replaceable with a 5/16-18″x 1 1/4″ grade 5 Hex bolt that is readily available at any hardware store.
The WoodMaxx SB-60 Snow Blower comes with a 2-year warranty. At WoodMaxx our service department is staffed with professional certified technicians that inspect each machine before it is shipped. This ensures that you get a trouble-free machine from the get-go. When you need technical help or parts, our courteous staff can help you get what you need from our fully stocked warehouse.

Finally put this beast to the test,whow! I couldn’t be happier! All my neighbors are happy also! My neighbors plow and I remove the snow banks! I had a problem with the electric shoot deflector! But woodmaxx sent me a new one right away! Thank you! Great service!
WOW! Had a little hiccup with the fan hub after 7 hours, Service was exceptional, took care of the issue right away. My drive is 4 miles long, about two miles needs constant attention due to the wind and drifting snow. My SB60 has opened up 4’+ drifts, moves 18″ to 24″ drifts with no effort. The only limit I have is traction and power from my tractor, if the tractor moves the blower moves snow. I have moved snow for years with a backhoe and a plow truck. Eventually the berms build up and the road gets too narrow to use. With the SB60 I can keep most of my road 20′ wide with no berm. I regret not getting it years ago. This is one well built machine. Shipping was very fast, the crate was a nice gift as I do a lot of fabricating on my ranch and always need angle iron. If you are considering a blower, you will not find better quality or price than WOODMAXX.
I bought the SB60 from my good friend whom I work with, he was blowing gravel all over his grass. With his discouragement he sold it to me, and Happy days are here! This machine is heavy built and quiet. But you find out how well built when you back into a huge snow bank, and the growling starts and slow application of the foot peddle begins the snow flying. I first mounted the SB60 to my JD855 and it barely lifted it. Few years later purchased a Yanmar 235 nothing stops this snowblower, nothing. Last year upstate NY got 36” of snow, so much so my plow truck was pushing at an angle. So mounted up the blower and had to blow out the remaining road of 1400 feet it was slow going but it did a fantastic job I am so happy Scott sold this machine to me. Oh, and do yourselves a favor and purchase the electric chute rotator and electric deflector you will be elated in the middle of a storm reaching for the crank handle.
WOW!!! What a well engineered then constructed piece of machinery. It works better than advertised. Installed on a L3200 Kubota tractor with 25HP at the PTO. I have to run in low range but the snow blower can take anything you put in it’s way. I’ve told my friends that taking care of my driveway will not take so long, I can actually wear Bermuda shorts, t-shirt and flip flops. I’m out there so little, I’m back in before I can get cold!!!!
This thing was worth every penny!
I have the sb-60 I have used it twice on 2 new snowfalls so far , and goes threw snow drifts with no problems , I have it installed on a Branson 2515h , and has plenary of horsepower to run the snow blower ,and the set up was easy and comes with a great instructional manual , happy with my purchase , no issues so far.
