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 SS-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 skid steer 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 design of the SS-72 snow blowers utilizes a single powerful USA White drive hydraulic motor and gearbox to transfer power to the infeed auger and fan. This design allows for maximum power at the main discharge fan while maintaining the correct infeed-to-discharge fan speed ration. The WoodMaxx exclusive hydraulic valve block, provides constant flow and pressure to the hydraulic drive motor, by not diverting oil flow or pressure away from the fan. This is achieved by using “down flow” oil that has already passed through the motor for these functions. This feature prevents the momentary stop of the discharge fan from instantly plugging the chute when blowing wet or heavy snow.
The WoodMaxx SS-72 skid steer snow blower features a cutting width of 72”. It’s general practice when choosing a SS snow blower, to choose one that has a cutting width that is at least as wide of the skid steer tires, as the distance from outside to outside. Please refer to skidsteerspecifications.com if you’re unsure of the track width of your skid steer.
The cutting height on our SS-72 PTO snow blower is 27” high.
The WoodMaxx SS-series skid steer 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 SS-72 skid steer 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 SS-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 SS-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 ensures proper auger to fan speed ratio, increases torque and is easy to maintain.
WoodMaxx SS-series skid steer 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.
WoodMaxx SS-series snow blowers come standard with all wiring harnesses and the handheld remote control. No need for any factory installed wiring from your skid steer. The WoodMaxx SS-72 will work with any skid steer provided that proper hydraulic flow is provided. Supported by 4 roller bearings, the chute rotates easily without freezing up.
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.
SS-series snow blowers will mount to any skid steer that has a universal skid steer attachment mount. If you have any questions about compatibility, just give us a call.
The WoodMaxx SS-72 skid steer 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.

This woodchipper works great! This is one of the best investments I have made. Easy to operate and perfect for getting rid of brush and branches. I liked this woodchipper so much from Woodmaxx I just ordered a snowblower from you guys as well!
My experience with Woodmaxx has been really good. Ordered my WM-8M on a Monday and received it on Friday. Packaging for shipment was great with no damage… just be ready to transport the package from curbside to wherever you want it. Assembly was pretty straightforward and did not take very long. Having used the chipper now for several hours, all I can say is, “Wow!” This things is amazing and works very well. I am using it with my Kubota L2501, which seems to have everything it needs. All in all, very satisfied with my purchase.
I bought an 8600 backhoe and am using it on a TC-45 New Holland tractor. Recently the main pressure hose started leaking. The hose was out of stock, but Ron Szpylman of Woodmaxx parts and service notified me when it came back in. He was easy to contact personally and I ordered one. I made sure it would fit my system and I mentioned to him that the hose was leaking around the crimp, not the joint. He made the suggestion that if that were true it would be covered under warranty. I thought this was great personal service, something difficult to find these days. Thank you Woodmaxx!
I have been thoroughly enjoying my WoodMaxx DC-1260. It makes quick work of a big pile of brush and rarely struggles to keep up with the brush I’ve been processing. It’s powerful engine and in-line cutter design means practically no down time whereas the old chipper I powered off the PTO of my tractor clogged all the time and I spent more time cleaning out the cutting blades than actually making wood chips!! Awesome product!
The feed system on the MX-8500G works great: elegant in it’s simplicity. A powered feed would only be one more thing to pay for, to maintain, and to repair. Since I have the I-Match system on my John Deere 3720, the PTO shaft fit perfectly without alteration.
