Development of the application of the Hybrid system to Snow Thrower 2002-32-1780
As the developmental application of the hybrid system provided with a gasoline engine and electric motors for a power plant, the hybrid snow thrower for general consumer use has been verified based on the key concept of improved handling and operability. The snow clearing system is driven by an engine and simultaneously generates power for two motors which drive the driving system. Computer-controlled travel motion together with automatic control of speed according to work load make for smoothness of travel motion and work alike. Operator load has been reduced significantly 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.
