Title: AUGER-IMPELLER BUCKET ASSEMBLY FOR A SNOW REMOVAL DEVICE
Abstract:
A snow removal device includes a frame, an engine supported at least in part by the frame, a mobility assembly and a bucket assembly. The mobility assembly is operably coupled to the frame and the engine to provide mobility of the snow removal device responsive at least in part to operation of the engine. The bucket assembly is operably coupled to the frame and houses a material conveyor and an impeller, each of which operate via power from the engine to provide snow removal operations. The bucket assembly includes one of each of a first stage housing, an impeller housing, and a discharge chute base. The bucket assembly is formed such that at least two among the first stage housing, the impeller housing, or the discharge chute base are integrally molded or cast as a single unitary component.
