Overview

The piled-up runway. Your packed mind. Clear it all.

When you take to the runway with the Oshkosh H-Series blower, you respond with power. Arming yourself with the exclusive Oshkosh high-speed blower lets you throw an incredible 5,000 tons of snow per hour, with a cast distance up to 200 feet. The H-Series blower unleashes performance that's as forceful as it is adaptable and acommodating.

 

Take Back the Runway.

Key Features

INCREASED VISIBILITY.

It’s not just the look of the H-Series™ chassis that’s so impressive. It’s the look out. A much larger windshield, with 40% more glass and no corner posts. Rear three-quarter windows eliminate blind spots. Light bars are placed out of sight lines. Lower front windows give you a bird’s-eye view of attachments. The windshield stays clear with better wiper coverage and an improved defroster system. In every way, the H-Series is designed to give the operator an unparalleled view of the airport and its obstacles.

MORE ADAPTABLE.

Pilots, passengers, airport traffic control. They don’t care if you’re brooming a foot of powder or throwing two-foot windrows over the lights. They just want to see bare runway. The H-Series is built to seamlessly integrate with a variety of blowers, plows, scrapers and brooms to adapt to your requirements.

GREATER COMFORT.

The H-Series cab responds with a host of features that will make operators as comfortable as they are productive. Like a cab that’s a full 10” wider and 10” deeper. Improved sound insulation for better communication. Two full size seats to accommodate a supervisor/training officer. Easier to operate digital climate control. Add in two doors, power roll-down windows, and yes, even cup holders, and operators will find that putting in a little overtime is anything but hard time.

BUILT-IN SAFETY.

An unwavering commitment to safety has long been a priority at Oshkosh. As is evident in the H-Series snow chassis. Unmatched power and speed are combined with built-in advanced safety features. These include emergency stop button for components, a joystick that only engages when the driver is ready, and on-dash error messages that tell operators what safety interlock is blocking a selected action.
