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-84 PTO snow blower features a cutting width of 84”. 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 27” high.
The WoodMaxx SB-series PTO snow blowers are equipped with a heavy gauge 3/16″ (4.8mm) AR400 – equivalent tempered alloy steel 17.5 inch 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-84 PTO snow blower utilizes a 24” diameter, 4-blade, open center cupped fan. It features a 3,393 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 74 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.
If you’re hooking up to a Cat-2 tractor, you will require a Cat-1 to Cat-2 bushing. If you’re hooking up to a Cat -1 tractor with a quick hitch, you may need Quick Hitch bushings. These snow blowers are not compatible with a Cat-2 Quick Hitch.
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-84 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.

Just put my SB-84 away after its first year of use. Zero complaints. Easy to put together and extremely heavy duty. It functioned flawlessly, and was able to cut through heavy drifts of dense snow without missing a beat! I have 45hp at the PTO which was enough. Stainless fasteners are nice, and the locking nuts actually work!
Highly recommended. Very high quality at a reasonable price.
Happy Snow Blower customer
Purchased SB 84 Unit for 60 HP tractor. I have had plenty of opportunities to use it this year.
Varying snow conditions, from heavy wet to light snow. All depths. I couldn’t be without it now.
It has made storm cleanup so much easier. It appears to be a well built unit. I am fairly experienced
when it comes to mechanical stuff so I can tell the difference between high or low quality. It is used
to maintain 830 acre camp ground facility with lots of gravel roads & parking lots. Have yet to replace
a shear pin with almost 40 hrs. of run time on the unit.
I would recommend this product!
I purchased the SB-84 over a year ago but we didn’t get a good storm the first winter, so I waited to review this until after a good test.
It came crated with everything, plus I bought the gearbox oil and extra shear bolts. Assembly went quick following the included directions.
Later after using it a few times I flipped over the cutting edge because of my dirt driveway. That’s another nice feature along with the stainless steel
bolts. The SB-84 is built like a tank, very strong built, well balanced, quiet to run. This year we finally had 2 large snow falls of over 12″ each and this machine
took care of it effortlessly, I’m impressed! As best as I can see the SB-84 will last for years to come.
Finally, the people at WoodMaxx are a pleasure to talk to. Sales was helpful and the service department very responsive to my needs, they stand behind
I will certainly buy from them again when the need arises.
Just received and hooked up my 2nd SB84 snow blower. Obviously it still is above the rest. Also have a WM-8H-0008 chipper. It seems all their products are top notch in my opinion!! Well done!!
Just received the SB84, it is a monster. Very heavy duty, much more than expected, and better built than other brands. Just like the chipper I have, Woodmaxx builds their machines with simplicity and serviceability in mind. Minimal assembly and easy to follow instructions. Can’t wait for the first storm, going to be much easier than plowing!
