DR Snow Blower Models(2:43)



A Winter Workhorse That’s Ready to Run!

Our DR PRO-28 Snow Blower is a feature-rich machine that gives you the power to blast through the deep stuff. Plug-in electric starting puts an end to hard starts—just run an extension cord, plug in, and you get sure-fire starts without the expense and battery maintenance that comes with a normal electric-starting engine. Plus, we’ve added enough creature comforts that you might even enjoy the work: heated hand grips, EZ-Turn™ steering for hassle-free 180º turns, an LED headlamp to light your way in the dark, and an integrated control panel that puts all operations within easy reach.

With a 28" clearing width and an 8-speed transmission (6 forward speeds and 2 reverse), the PRO-28 is up to any job. Our OHV engine (8 HP, 252cc) is designed for cold weather conditions and will keep on working as long as you do. Big 15” tires provide reliable traction. This snow blower is built to last.

Features
Eletric Start

Plug-in Electric Start

Using a standard 3-prong extension cord, plug in, push a button, and you’re up and running! There is no battery that requires charging or maintenance. Recoil backup, with compression-release, makes for easy pull starts when you’re away from a power source.

OHV Engine

DR OHV Engine

This cold-weather engine (8HP, 252cc) is designed especially for extreme conditions and has the muscle to power through deep or wet snow.

impeller

2-Stage for Efficient Snow Removal

The serrated auger breaks up ice and compacted snow. The heavy-duty impeller (12” in diameter and constructed of 10-gauge steel) draws the loosened material up and out the chute. This 2-stage system creates a high-speed wind channel that throws snow up to 50 feet away!

EZ Turn

EZ-Turn™ Steering

When you initiate a turn, the two axle shafts are free to drive independently and go wherever you guide the machine. There are no hand levers to engage...all you need to do is steer. The result is the ability to make tight, 180° turns, without wrestling the machine.

Control Panel

Integrated Control Panel

Controls for all functions are right at your fingertips: gear shift, auger and drive hand levers (once transmission is engaged, the auger control locks in so you can operate with right hand only), chute rotation/deflection, heated handwarmers, and LED headlight.

Pro 28 tires

Snow Tires

15” x 4” pneumatic tires provide positive traction, even in icy conditions.

Headlight

Headlight

LED headlight illuminates your path for early morning or night time operation.

Skid Shoes

2-Piece Skid Shoes

By lowering the skid shoes you can give the auger ground clearance. This is especially useful when clearing gravel driveways to help prevent pulling stones into the blower. Consists of a steel outer shoe bracket with a non-marring plastic center. The steel bracket can be removed for operating on surfaces you want to avoid scraping or gouging (e.g., pavers or cobblestones).

Friction skid disc

Friction Disc Transmission

Simple but effect drive system transfers power to the drive wheels via a rubberized friction disc. Easy to maintain and easily accessible.

Drift cutters on a DR Snow Blower

Drift Cutters (included)

For extra deep snow, these cutters carve a clean path and channel the snow into the auger. Remove/attach without tools.

Scraper Blade on a DR Snow Blower

Scraper Blade

Sturdy 9-gauge steel blade lets you clear right down to pavement.

Snow Stick on  DR Snow Blower

Snow Stick (included)

Onboard snow stick for quick and safe clearing of ice or other clogs.

Perfect size and feature set for my suburban needs

I replaced a 20 year old Snow-King with this particular model. This model has an easy augur control for both pitch and direction, and was very easy to load/unload into my truck. Great hand warmers and the lights are bright enough to light my entire driveway while using.

Powerful and easy to use!

A few weeks ago I was given the opportunity to use the new DR Snow Blowers at their testing facility. I was beyond impressed with how they performed, how easy they were to operate, and who well built they were. I have been in the snow removal business for over 25 years and I will be adding one of these to my arsenal against mother nature!

I'm really happy with our line up of new snow blowers. Our Engineers and Testing departments put a lot of time into optimizing the design and proving them out and it really shows. With powerful winter engines, easy to use controls, EZ-turn™ steering, and heated handgrips snow blowing this winter will be a blast, just don't tell my wife I said that.

Here in Vermont, winter storms can bring snow ranging from light and fluffy to wet and heavy. The new DR Power snowblowers have the power to handle whatever mother nature brings your way while being easy to start even on the coldest morning.

Does what it's supposed to do.

The work I did with these units was with sawdust and water. The water baths as we call them load the units quite heavily and allow us to run them for hours on end up to 10 hours a day continuously. This is how we test them for durability. The wet sawdust test lets us see performance since it simulates wet, heavy snow. The units worked very well in the sawdust. They would easily throw the wet sawdust 25' without a problem. The controls are simple to use. The units have plenty of power to move/throw the wet sawdust. All in all, a good machine that does what it's suppose to do.

Q.What is EZ-turn™ Steering?
A.Thank you for your questions. EZ-Turn™ Steering senses direction automatically as you press the handlebars to turn and adjusts the power to the inside wheel to make turning easier. You'll be able to make tight, 180° turns with ease. Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Q.Which model is right for me?
A.Thank you for your interest in the DR Snow Blowers. Choosing the correct model for your needs will depend on a few things. All our models are 2 stage snow blowers and can easily handle deep, wet, and heavy snow. It really comes down to clearing width and along with that storage. For occasional snow storms or smaller driveways, the 24 model will have plenty of power to spare. The 28 & 30 models clear that much more snow which can make a big difference if you're doing a lot of clearing. The 34 model is our biggest and is best suited for long driveways or those big clearing jobs. If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact us, we would be happy to help out.
