Three-stage technology on the Vortex 2610 includes a powerful 12" accelerator that spins 10 times faster than the augers to break down and quickly clear heavy, wet snow. Equipped with a 357cc Troy-Bilt engine, heated handgrips, Touch N’ Turn™ power steering, and an in-dash headlight, you'll be prepared to meet winter's toughest challenges. Featuring rugged, 12" serrated steel augers designed to handle up to 18" of snow, the center-mount chute crank puts the controls comfortably within your reach. Just One Hand™ operation allows adjustment of the chute controls without disengaging the drive, including a quick change to the snow discharge height from the dashboard with the remote pitch control lever. The extended chute is designed to minimize snow blowback on the operator.
