Development of Hybrid HS1390i Snow Thrower

Article of Honda R&D Technical Review Vol.14 No.1

Summary

Honda has developed the HS1390i hybrid snow thrower for general consumer use based on the key concept of enhanced handling and operability. The snow clearing system is driven by an engine that simultaneously generates power for two drive motors. Computer-controlled travel motion combined with automatic load sensitive speed control make travel motion and work smooth. Operator load has been reduced by mounting the driving levers on the driving system frame and placing the operating controls in a fixed location. In addition, the use of an electric operating system reduces the amount of force required to operate the various controls. Fuel consumption per volume of snow removed is also better than previous models, making this product strongly competitive in the market.
