Honda HS1336iAS Hybrid Snowblower Thursday, November 10th
If you thought cars and trucks were the only machinery utilizing hybrid technology… think again. The Honda HS1336iAS Hybrid Snowblower features a four-stroke gasoline engine that powers the spinning auger and blower but has two electric motors powering the forward drive. The four-stroke acts as a generator charging the battery that powers the electric motors. Also, like with Honda hybrid vehicles, when the snowblower decelerates, both electric motors act as additional generators repurposing the excess energy back into the battery. This not only saves money and fuel consumption, it makes for a smoother running snowblower.
