Mobile K S65 B8 PRO

Mobil K C65 B8 PRO is a professional snow blower designed specifically for Russian winters. The height of the intake part is 58 cm, and the width is 65 cm, which means that it will cope even with impressive snowdrifts.

C65 B8 PRO is equipped with a special winter engine that works stably even in severe frost, is protected from icing and snow dust. The engine has a foam filtration system, which ensures unhindered air access during operation and maintains the correct proportion of the air-fuel mixture. The handle is designed in such a way that the motor can be started with gloves; in addition, the device can be equipped with an electric starter.

The MOBIL K TRANSMISSION FG1 gear transmission was developed specifically for this model. It is compact, equipped with five forward speeds and two reverse speeds. Of particular importance is a low gear with speeds up to 0.63 km/h — it is indispensable when working on relief areas or when cleaning wet snow.

Snow ejection range — 12 meters. First, the snow, falling into the snow blower, is crushed by two solid screws with sharp protrusions, then it is fed to the impeller turbine rotating at high speeds. The MOBIL K HIGHSPEED WARM GEER WG1 gearbox is protected by a snow cutter that cuts the packed snow and pushes it onto the augers.

The design uses hardened shafts and gears. The body of the device is welded inside the body, not outside. This protects against corrosion at the weld seams. The bottom of the case is protected by metal plates that protect it from increased wear. Bearing-mounted X-TRAC winter wheels with a diameter of 42 cm and a thickness of 12 cm provide reliable grip on snow and ice. Each wheel can withstand up to 200 kg of load. The noise level of the S65 B8 PRO is lower than that of similar devices due to the fact that the snow ejection chute is fixed through a special spacer that absorbs vibrations, and the augers are installed with minimal play.

The snow blower can also work as a street sweeper: for this, you need to put a special brush instead of a bucket (not included). This is easy to do yourself by unscrewing and tightening a few bolts. However, remember that you can only sweep in winter — it is forbidden to operate the C65 B8 PRO in a dusty environment. Also, the device can be equipped with a headlight for working in the dark.

How to choose a snow blower

The modern snow blower market is rich in a variety of models — affordable and expensive. Prices can start from very democratic amounts to exorbitant price tags comparable to the cost of the supported Priora. So that you do not make a mistake when choosing the best snow blower for your farm, we asked sales assistant of a hardware store Sergey Belov tell what a reliable machine should be for each type of site where it will work in the future.


In any car, the engine is the most important part, and snow blowers are no exception. Modern models are electric (not as powerful, but quite compact and easy to use) and gasoline (slightly better suited for cleaning a large area, you should get used to the controls). The best snow blowers in terms of performance are models with gasoline engines.

The electric motor of a snow blower is convenient in that it allows you to start the machine by pressing just one button, but now an electric starter is being added to mid-range gasoline models. The weight of the most initial models starts from 8 kg (excluding removable battery)

With a gasoline engine, there are more worries — here the start is manual, you have to pull a special handle and independently regulate the amount of air that enters the carburetor through a special lever. Machines of this type are much more powerful than electrical counterparts. The engine power of modern gasoline snow blowers starts from 4 kW. Such snow blowers weigh much heavier than electric ones — from 40 kg.

Together with the engine of the snow blower, a gearbox works, which allows you to select the desired speed of the motor.

Snow blower auger system

The main task of a snow blower is to clear surfaces of snow. This is done through a cunning system of operation of one or several mechanisms at once. If we simplify the principle of operation of the machine, then the snow enters the bucket with the help of a system of augers — “blades”, which rake the snow mass inside.

A single-stage auger system “sucks in” the snow, and then throws it to the side through the nozzle. During the operation of a two-stage system, the snow inside the bucket falls on the second rotor, which additionally crushes it, and then throws it away — an additional element allows you to throw the snow mass much further.

For convenience and safety, the metal augers of snow blowers are covered with rubber or plastic, so that during cleaning the operator does not damage the coating under the snow.

Battery life

Due to the fact that the snow blower is used in the cold season, battery models do not allow you to work with the machine for a long time — a maximum of an hour. A gasoline engine is much more practical if you need to clean a large area. Here, as you understand, everything is limited by the gasoline reserves that you have at hand. On average, a car consumes about 1.5 liters of gasoline in one hour. The capacity of the gas tank in modern models is from 3.5 liters.

Ease of use

The advanced models of the best snow blowers are usually equipped with features that add comfort to the machine operator. Among them are heated handles, the presence of a headlight or the ability to tune the engine directly from the front panel. All this certainly makes the job enjoyable, but it costs money.

The best drills

We will tell you which best drills to look for when choosing

Wheels or tracks?

Most snow blowers are wheeled. However, for work in harsh conditions, caterpillar options are often purchased. In this case, the operator starts to drive a small tractor. Such machines are built on the basis of the most powerful engines — there is more weight and fuel consumption.

Buy consumables in advance

No matter how reliable a snow blower is, it can break down at the most inopportune moment. Most often, the auger mechanism, the drive belt and the cables through which the machine systems are regulated fail. Replacing them at home is not difficult if you are able to tighten a couple of screws. Another thing is that on the day of a breakdown it is difficult to find a spare part for sale — you have to wait for delivery. Be sure to discuss this issue with the seller.
