Berta 2-Stage Snowblowers (snow throwers)
The housings are all plate steel, and the “scoop” at the bottom of the mouth is 3/8” thick steel. The 2-stage models feature INTERCHANGEABLE adjustable skid-shoes and caster wheels to allow the blower to be elevated a bit(for gravel driveways, pavers, etc.). Chute rotation is achieved via a crank-handle which comes up to the operator position and allows over 180 degrees of chute rotation. The top louver on the chute comes standard with a manual adjustment to control the “loft” of the snow…there is also an optional handlebar-mounted remote adjustment kit for this louver (see below picture).
OPTIONAL Remote-Adjustment kit
for upper louver on chute
These units are double-shear-pin protected: a shear pin on the input shaft to protect the “second” stage impeller AND shear pins on the augers for “first” stage. Heat-treated gears and ball bearings in oil bath encased in cast-iron gearbox. Truly built with full-time commercial use in mind, and the kind of snow they get in the Alps!
NOTE REGARDING SHIPPING: To reduce the chances of damage in transit, these units are shipped not-quite-fully assembled … all models will require the chute to be installed to the top (5 minutes or less).
