Although our snowmaking kits don't come with all the bells and whistles of our professionally made snowmakers,
they are our least expensive snowmakers making them ideal for people on a tight budget. Our snowmaker kits
are also a perfect alternative for someone looking to build a homemade snowmaker, but doesn't have the time to
find all the parts, special adapters, and snowmaking nozzles needed to construct the snowmaker. Our kits include
EVERYTHING you need to build a fully functional homemade snowmaker that will make real snow.
Our snowmaking kits can be ordered either assembled or unassembled. If you do not have a vise and pipe
wrench, we recommend that you purchase the snowmaking kit assembled as it will be difficult to line the fittings up
without a vise. It is important that all the snowmaking nozzle fittings line up correctly in a straight line, otherwise
the snowmaker will not make snow. Without using a vise and pipe wrench, your snowmaker will also be prone to
leaks from not being properly tightened. Leaks lead to freeze-ups and reduce the efficiency of your snowmaker.
Kit Number 1 constructs a snowmaker that runs off a garden hose and small air compressor. Kit Number 2
constructs a snowmaker that runs off a pressure washer and small air compressor. Kit Number 3 is a combination
kit that includes both Kit Number 1 and Kit Number 2 at a discounted price. If you order Kit 2 or Kit 3, you will
need to select the flow rate of your pressure washer (gpm) so that we include the correct size snowmaking
nozzles for your pressure washer.
Stands are NOT included with kits. You will need to make your own stand for the snowmaker or mount
the snowmaker to something such as a ladder or fence post using zip ties or clamps.
|Home Snowmaking Kit 1
Requires a garden hose and small air compressor to make snow
|Assembled Kit 1 Snowmaker
The snowmaker assembled from kit 1 is perfect for anyone new to snowmaking. The snowmaker teaches the fundamentals of snowmaking in the
simplest way possible. The snowmaker is also great for use in marginal snowmaking conditions and will make snow up to 39ºF if the humidity is low
enough (10% or less). If you want to start making snow but do not want to make an investment in a pressure washer, then this snowmaker is an
affordable way to start making snow. A custom stainless steel snowmaking nozzle is included with this kit to make the snowmaker run more efficiently
than with a homemade nozzle. The nozzle also helps to prevent sputtering or "spitting" that is common with homemade nozzles. Depending on the size
of your air compressor and the weather conditions, the snowmaker will make an average of 1" of snow per hour over a 15' x 15' area.
Requirements for Operation:
Weather: 30ºF or less (snowmaker will make snow up to 39ºF if humidity is low enough)
Air Compressor: Minimum of 4cfm@90psi or more
Garden hose with running water
Unassembled Kit 1: $84.99 + $12 shipping
Assembled Kit 1: $99.99 + $12 shipping
|Home Snowmaking Kit 2
Requires a pressure washer and a small air compressor to make snow. Please select the flow rate of your pressure washer (gpm) when
ordering so that we include the correct size snowmaking nozzles for your pressure washer.
The snowmaker assembled from Kit 2 makes snow with a pressure washer and small air compressor. This snowmaker will work with any pressure
washer that flows between 1.2gpm and 3.5gpm (max 3500psi). When ordering Kit 2, please select the flow rate of your pressure washer (gpm) so that
we include the correct size snowmaking nozzles for your pressure washer. This snowmaker will make much more snow and cover a larger area than the
snowmaker from Kit 1 that runs off of a garden hose. The weather conditions and size of your pressure washer will determine how much snow you can
make. Using a small electric pressure washer that flows that flows between 1.2gpm and 1.8gpm the snowmaker will make 1.5" to 2.5" of snow per hour
over a 25' x 25' area. Using a larger pressure washer or snowmaking pump that flows between 1.9gpm and 3.5gpm the snowmaker will make 2" to 4" of
snow per hour over a 25' x 25' area.
Requirements for Operation:
Weather: 28ºF or less (snowmaker may work above this temp if humidity is low enough)
Air Compressor: Minimum of 5cfm@90psi or more
Pressure Washer: Any pressure washer that flows between 1.2gpm and 3.5gpm (max 3500psi)
Unassembled Kit 2: $169.99 + $12 shipping
