Vortex™ 2890 Snow Thrower (31AH55Q8766)



28" Three-Stage Snow Thrower - 357cc Troy-Bilt Engine - Just One Hand® Operation

Move more snow with less effort and in record time - thanks to the Vortex 2890 three-stage snow thrower. The new 12" inch accelerator that makes the three stage process possible spins at 10 times the speed of the Xtreme™ augers, breaking down the heaviest, wettest snow before throwing it out of the high-impact polymer chute. The Vortex 2890 three-stage snow thrower is equipped with a reliable 357cc* Troy-Bilt engine and large X-Trac™ tires that provide extra traction when breaking through the barriers of snow left at the bottom of your driveway. Additional features include Touch 'n Turn® power steering, heated hand grips and Just One Hand® Operation.

Signature Features
  • Three-Stage Design: The 12" accelerator spins 10 times faster than the augers, first breaking down heavy, wet snow like it was fresh powder. Then, with the help of the augers, it continuously shoots snow back into the third stage impeller for discharging.
  • Touch 'n Turn® Power Steering: The Touch 'n Turn® power steering system is controlled by two easy triggers. Simply squeeze the trigger on the side you want to turn toward, and the unit's self-propelled drive system will turn the snow thrower for you.
  • Just One Hand® Operation: Just One Hand® operation lets you guide your Troy-Bilt® snow thrower with literally one hand. Because the machine is engineered to be well-balanced and easy to control, it does the work - not you.
