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. Our innovative 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 snow blower caught my eye when I saw the 4 rollers at the chute. After that, what impressed me was the heavy metal the blower was made of and the extensive engineering thought that went into the design. Being a mechanical designer of 42 years, I know what to look for. I’ve used the blower twice so far and am very happy with my purchase. The delivery was unbelievable. Questions I had were answered. I would highly recommend this company.
Unbelievable fast shipping .Almost came before my pallet forks attachment I ordered elsewhere a week earlier. Free shipping to my driveway. Took it out of the truck and brought it to the house. I was very impressed at first sight of the weight and quality of the piece. Next day took the shipping steel crate apart and with neighbors help we had it all together in hour. All I needed was the hydraulic couplings for the discharge chute. Picked them up at my tractor supply store and hooked them up. Awesome looking snow remover, good price and is well built with heavy steel by americans.And this is a veteran owned business, which cemented the deal with me. PS, don’t forget to check your tractor draw bar for clearance. I had to remove mine. Almost damaged my PTO shaft. Now for the first snowstorm.
This snowblower is awesome! Chews through snow like nothing. If your on the fence on buying this, don’t be. This unit is great and so is the customer service.
Bought this one to replace an older blower. If you want one you better order early, they are backed up for about 2 months. If you have a hydro-static tranny, remove shear bolts that come with blower and put in grade 5, 3/8″ or 8.8 M10 Or you’ll keep breaking them Blower is very durable and throws snow pretty darn good. I went with the electric chute options boy is it FAST. The elect. motor whips the chute with ease. Install was easy and putting it together was a breeze. Very thick steel and no bubble gum welding either. Oh yea I forgot…Its HEAVY
Ordered in March of 14 and received in Oct 14. Today Jan 9,2015 got the first snow to try it out. Did a great job! Have a lane about 1000 ft long that gets drifts over twenty inches deep. Stopped once to let it catch up but most of the time it handled that snow easily. I would highly recommended this blower. It is well built and Woodmaxx is a good company to deal with.
