CARLSTADT, NJ--(Marketwired - October 25, 2016) - This winter, Snow Joe has set the bar higher than ever in the outdoor tools industry with its groundbreaking iON24SB-XR 24" 80-Volt Self-Propelled Dual-Stage Cordless Snow Blower -- the first and only completely cordless, self-propelled, digital drive lithium-ion-powered two-stage snow blower. This revolution in snow removal comes just a few years after Snow Joe took the world by storm with its innovative line of eco-friendly, battery-powered single-stage snow blowers -- and the company continues to blow away the competition with the iON Dual-Stage.
Two-stage snow blowers have motor-driven wheels and are capable of covering large, uneven areas. These blowers feature a process that moves snow faster and farther -- first collecting the snow with an auger, then using an impeller fan to powerfully discharge snow through a chute. This makes the iON24SB-XR ideal for clearing snow from sidewalks, large driveways and walkways. Its onboard computer drives all functionality for a fully digital performance, while load-sensing technology helps maximize battery run time by providing the precise amount of power needed for the job.
"The unparalleled snow-shredding power of the iON Dual-Stage is a true game-changer in snow blower technology," said Joseph Cohen, CEO of Snow Joe. "Finally, consumers will have the power and performance previously reserved for expensive, inconvenient, hard-to-use gas models at their fingertips -- without the needless hassle and prep of gas, oil and cords. The iON Dual-Stage is always ready to tackle winter."
Powered by twin iON EcoSharp® 40 V 5.0 Ah lithium-ion batteries (which are compatible with Snow Joe + Sun Joe's entire fleet of cordless iON products), the easy-to-use, agile iON24SB-XR provides up to 40 minutes of whisper-quiet, self-propelled run time as it effortlessly carves a swath 24 inches wide by 13 inches deep, moving up to 1,000 pounds of snow per minute - or 20 tons on a single charge -- all while weighing about 50 percent less than comparable gas units. (An upgraded model, the iON24SB-XRP, features two 40 V 6.0 Ah lithium-ion batteries for up to 50 minutes of run time on a single charge.) In addition, unlike gas units, the iON Dual-Stage can be stored inside a home or business, even on a naval ship.
Convenient and useful features are abundant on this cordless dual-dynamo, including wide studded snow tires for increased traction, a 180-degree adjustable chute capable of catapulting snow 32 feet precisely to where the user wants, powerful LED lights, digital shift technology and more. The advanced three-speed digital drive system sets the perfect customizable pace, and the reverse function helps the user back out when the dirty work is done -- making snow removal easier than ever.
"With iON Dual-Stage, there's 'no prep, no push' -- just charge and install the batteries, turn it on and let the digital drive system lead you to the most effortlessly powerful snow removal experience, ever," said Cohen.
The iON24SB-XR is available now for $799 at SnowJoe.com, The Home Depot and HomeDepot.com in the U.S., and in stores and online at Lowe's Canada. More information can be found on Snow Joe's website, or by connecting with Snow Joe on Facebook and Twitter.
