The compact and lightweight MTD M56 Two-Stage, Self -Propelled Snow Blower is petrol powered and ideal for medium sized paths and drives clearing even compacted snow. The engine is a powerful SnowThorx 55, 179cc overhead valve engine, for low temperature work. The MTD M56 Snow Blower has a large working width of 56 centimetres and a snow intake height of 41 centimetres, to enable removal of moderate depth snow. A heavy-duty, steel auger with toothed edges breaks up the snow and directs it to a secondary impellor that ejects the smashed snow through a weather-resistant polymer disposal chute. The chute rotates to 180 for accurate direction of the snow stream and is handle operated. An easy pull handle starts the engine. There are chunky 10 by 4 wheels with heavy-duty ‘snow hog tyres for stability and traction on frozen terrain.
