The Sport Ice machine features a “true” ice conditioner which is the one of the key features of the machine.
The horizontal auger has single flighting for most of its length but in the important snow transfer area (where the horizontal auger throws the snow into the intake chute of the vertical auger) – the auger has double flighting to allow for improved transfer resulting in very little residual snow left over.
Down Pressure Springs
The blade bar has down pressure springs which create a stable and secure shaving platform. These down pressure springs eliminate blade chatter.
Blade Leveling System
The shaving blade is easily leveled with the conditioner runners via the adjustment screws.
Shaving Depth Adjusted from the Operator’s Seat
The shaving depth is easily adjusted by turning the blade control hand wheel.
Lift Bar Down Pressure
The conditioner becomes a very stable work platform via the down pressure transferred from the machine to the conditioner via the lift bar.One unique feature of the lift bar is that the down pressure is adjustable via the lift bar cylinder clevis.This allows for adjustment to improve the machine’s down pressure as the machine ages – a feature most full sized machines do not have.
Side Conditioner Plastic
Both sides of the conditioner have a side mounted plastic strip as standard equipment. This wear strip protects the dasher boards and the conditioner. On most full-sized machines, this wear strip is an added- cost option.
